Medical malpractice in misdiagnosis of cancer is unfortunately common in Illinois and other states. Diagnosing cancer correctly at the earliest stages is crucial to having a good outcome. At its earliest stages, cancer can often be cured by surgery radiation and other treatments.
Unfortunately the pressures of competitive medicine, insurance industry demands and other factors may limit the attention that hospitals and doctors will give to each patient, letting serious mistakes happen.
No one wants to consider legal action against corporations that own hospitals. But families can often be left destitute by the preventable and untimely loss of a spouse or parent.
