Pages On: Negligent Cancer Diagnosis

Cancer is one of the most prevalent diseases in the world and affects around one in three people. Not all cancer is lethal, but people have every reason to be wary of it and to look for signs to combat it. Whilst often treatable, the problem with cancer is it is very hard to find, and the symptoms can be very vague. If left too long, cancer can become malignant and spread across the body. This means that people have to put a lot of trust in medical professionals to quickly diagnose what is happening in their own body. However, cancer can be easily misdiagnosed or diagnosed too late to leave sufferers with a chance to fight it. If you’ve suffered a late cancer diagnosis, or had cancer misdiagnosed as something else, your chances of survival are at risk, and doctors can be seen to be liable for that. If this has happened to you or a loved one, you may be entitled to claim medical negligence compensation.

Depression in cancer patients overlooked

Posted in: Medical NegligenceNegligent Cancer Diagnosis

Recent research has discovered that around three-quarters of cancer patients do not receive the psychological treatment they require.  Researchers have suggested that the problem is due to the physical symptoms being addressed at the expense of the psychological.  The research, carried out by the Lancet, highlighted that the problem is overlooked even though it could be treated at a fraction of the cost of cancer medication. Research carried out by Edinburgh and Oxford Universities found that clinical depression is a very common reaction to cancer, with it often being wrongly…

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.
