Misdiagnosis & Failure To Diagnose

Washington DC Misdiagnosis Attorney

Maryland Medical Malpractice

Misdiagnosis or the failure to timely diagnose medical conditions like cancer.

Every year thousands of Americans are misdiagnosed or not timely diagnosed with conditions that are treatable. Early detection is critical in the treatment of many diseases, and in most situations early detection increases the probability of survival. For women early detection of breast cancer on a mammogram is essential for a favorable prognosis. Men are at high risk for prostate cancer and doctors should be ordering the appropriate tests to look for early signs of this treatable condition. In the event of a stroke, early detection and treatment can greatly increase the ability to recover and the future quality of life.
