What counts as a late cancer diagnosis?
A late cancer diagnosis, otherwise known as a missed cancer diagnosis, or a delayed cancer diagnosis, is a type of medical negligence claim against a medical professional who has failed to diagnose or treat your cancer as they should have.
Essentially, cancer misdiagnosis claims fall into two categories-
A doctor has failed to recognise symptoms of a cancer, either dismissing them, or wrongly diagnosing them as something else
Referrals and further checks, after the initial appointments, are delayed due to administration mistakes or long waiting lists
If your cancer diagnosis, and subsequent treatment, has been delayed in the last three years, as stated above or in another way, then you could be entitled to financial compensation.
