Late Diagnosis of Cancer

Do you feel you have no chance after a delayed cancer diagnosis? Let us fight for you.

Thanks to modern advancements in technology, cancer is much easier to treat these days. However, depending on your stage and type of cancer, your overall condition may depend on how quickly you receive treatment. Unfortunately, medical professionals often overlook cancer symptoms and fail to diagnose a treatable form of cancer.

When something doesn't seem quite right with your health, you trust your doctor to provide you with the quality care you need to get your life back on track. So when a doctor overlooks your symptoms and fails to detect your cancer for months or even years, you may feel like you no longer have a chance in the battle against this deadly disease.

That's why you need the Toledo injury lawyers at Elk & Elk Co., Ltd., to fight for your rights.

Experienced attorneys handling complex medical malpractice claims

Cancer is much easier to treat when doctors find it early. When doctors fail to diagnose a treatable form of cancer, it can become more difficult to treat and reduce the chances of survival.

In many cases, delays in diagnosis occur from a doctor's failure to act. A doctor may fail to ask the right questions about a patient's symptoms. He or she may fail to order the right tests, or fail to refer the patient to an oncologist. The results of this failure can be devastating.
