Failure to Timely Diagnose Prostate Cancer Attorneys – More Inside
Most individuals don’t know this, but prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men, with an average onset of about 45 years. Despite its prevalence, it is highly treatable, especially if it is caught early enough. It is estimated that about 13 percent of all men will suffer from prostate cancer at one point in their lives, with advanced age heightening the likelihood for developing this cancer. That said, prostate cancer can be tested for using something called a prostate-specific antigen test, which is interpreted as a certain number, of which if above a certain value, may mean the beginnings of prostate cancer. Many men shy away from prostate exams which may very well save their lives due to the invasive nature of the test as well as the feeling that these tests are unnecessary and inutile. However, failure by your primary care provider to order these tests may constitute negligence as early diagnosis and treatment may save an individual’s life. If your physician never did their due diligence when it comes to testing for and treating prostate cancer, it may be possible to file a prostate cancer misdiagnosis lawsuit, which will go a long way in helping you recover substantial compensation.
