When you entrusted your health and well-being to the care of your physician, you may have left the doctor's office feeling confident that your complaints had been heard and your physical condition was fine. The doctor may have conducted examinations and done laboratory tests — but did not receive any diagnosis of cancer. Later, when your symptoms worsened and you talked to a doctor again, you learned that cancer had, in fact, been present in your body for a long time. It is impossible not to imagine that your prognosis might be much more favorable if your cancer had been detected much sooner.

Now you may be facing many physical, financial and emotional realities that advanced stages of cancer bring to an individual and a family. This is an important time to talk to an attorney. Legal action against your doctor or against a diagnostic laboratory cannot make up for lost time or take you back in time to when your cancer was in its early stages and went untreated. However, compensation for your expenses and losses can give you and your family hope during a difficult time after a missed diagnosis allowed your cancer to get worse.
