Failure to Diagnose Colon Cancer
Patients' embarrassment about undergoing colonoscopies may contribute to the underdiagnosis of colon cancer. Nevertheless, when patients are given the appropriate exams, doctors are responsible for detecting symptoms of the disease. If haste or lack of experience causes medical professionals to misdiagnose or fail to diagnose clear signs of colon cancer, patients affected by these mistakes may have cause for filing a lawsuit.
