Melanoma Misdiagnosis and Late Diagnosis Attorneys
Melanoma is one of the most common forms of skin cancer in the country. It is the fifth common in men, and the seventh common in women. Despite the severity of this form of cancer, it is highly treatable, and if caught early, has a survivability rate of over 89 percent over a 5-year period. Melanoma refers to cancer of the cells that are responsible for providing the skin with its pigment. It may show up as an abnormal discoloration on the skin, and it must be biopsied by your primary care doctor in order to find out if it is indeed melanoma, as well as if it has spread or not. Once melanoma has spread to the lymphatic system, it may be next to impossible to treat it as this stage may be attributed to cancer metastasis, so you’re probably looking at cancer that has breached multiple organ systems, making surgery a futile effort, and chemo and radiation feeble attempts at trying to save a burning building. Your primary care doctor or dermatologist is required by law to offer you a certain standard of care, failure to which you may be able to file a legal claim should your melanoma go undiagnosed, in order to recover money damages as well as seek out justice and closure for your injuries and health complications.

Melanoma Diagnosis and Treatment
The good thing about melanoma is the fact that the tumors grow extremely slowly over a long period of time. However, the superficial growth may give way to invasive growth after a couple of years, lowering the survival rate of the cancer. That said, the role of your physician is to timely diagnose your melanoma and treat it in order to stop it from spreading. A biopsy is standard medical practice if melanoma is suspected, and the tissue sample must be substantial enough in order for the lab technician to carry out extensive tests. In addition, doctors may order a PET or MRI scan in order to see whether the melanoma has spread, as well as to what extent. On top of that, radiation on the mole or patch of skin may be started in order to stem its growth and kill of abnormal cells before they become aggressive.
