Our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers in Michigan have secured hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of medical negligence.

The Definition of Cancer Misdiagnosis

When a person suffers from cancer, and a medical professional diagnoses the cancer as a different ailment, then you may have a medical malpractice case. Time spent treating the wrong problem means the cancer continues growing. Early diagnosis and early treatment of cancer can make the difference between life and death.

Misdiagnosis may occur from a medical professional that does not order the proper testing, does not properly evaluate test results, and/or fails to recognize cancer symptoms.

Some of the most common misdiagnosed cancers are the following:

  • Prostate cancer
  • Brain cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Skin cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Lymphoma
  • Cervical cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Colon/colorectal cancer
