Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the United States. However, the disease does not have to be a death sentence if it is diagnosed and treated at an early stage.
If a doctor failed to diagnose your colon cancer at an early stage, you may have a legal course of action in the form of a medical malpractice lawsuit. Cavanagh Law Group handles failure-to-diagnose colon cancer cases in Chicago and throughout Illinois. By aggressively pursuing delayed diagnosis cases, we hold doctors and other medical professionals to the high standards that our society expects. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Illinois Colon Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorneys
Regular colonoscopy screenings can prevent many deaths due to colorectal cancer. The American Medical Association recommends regular screenings for people over 50 and for those with a family history of colorectal cancer. People who experience symptoms such as abdominal pain or rectal bleeding should also contact their doctor. Unfortunately, doctors sometimes fail to order proper tests to detect colon cancer even when the patient has observable symptoms.
If a colon or rectal cancer is diagnosed when it is a small tumor, it can be removed before it starts growing. However, once the tumor grows and metastasizes, it may be too late to treat the disease successfully.
