Skin cancer has become an increasingly common form of cancer due to environmental factors such as increased UV radiation. While the disease is highly treatable at an early stage, the prognosis changes if the melanoma is not diagnosed before it reaches a late stage.
If a doctor failed to diagnose your melanoma despite observable symptoms, you may have a legal course of action in the form of a medical malpractice lawsuit. Cavanagh Law Group handles failure-to-diagnose skin cancer cases in Chicago and throughout Illinois. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
Illinois Delayed Diagnosis Attorneys
Most skin cancer cases are diagnosed after an abnormal mole was noticed by the patient or a doctor during an examination. However, if your doctor failed to order a biopsy of a suspicious mole, or the lab failed to report biopsy results to your doctor, you may not receive treatment early enough to stop the spread of the cancer.
If discovered early, a precancerous mole can be removed before it metastasizes and spreads through the lymph system to other tissues in your body. Our firm works with leading cancer experts to determine whether there was a breach of the standard of care in failing to timely diagnose and treat your melanoma cancer.
We understand the emotional pain and distress that a skin cancer diagnosis can bring. Our lawyers will provide attentive and compassionate counsel during this difficult time. You will have confidence, knowing that an experienced and determined legal team is working hard to get results for you.
