Most claims in this area relate to a delay or a failure to diagnose the disease. It is well known that the earlier a cancer is diagnosed, the better chance there is of treating it. Sometimes, the delay is so long that the disease spreads and the outlook for the patient is very poor. In other cases the delay causes the need for more extensive surgery/treatment and damage to surrounding structures when a simple local excision (removal) is all that would have been necessary.
