Prostate Cancer Medical Malpractice

The incidence of medical malpractice related to the diagnosis of prostate cancer is alarming. Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer in men in the U.S., resulting in an expected 31,500 deaths this year. Nonetheless, too many men have their prostate cancer diagnosis delayed when the general practitioners and even urologists in whose hands such men entrust their well-being fail to discuss screening options once the male patient reaches the recommended age, fail to perform appropriate tests for men who choose to undergo screening or exhibit symptoms, fail to properly interpret test results, and fail to take necessary steps when prostate cancer is suspected. The tragic result of this negligence is too often the loss of treatment options and/or the loss of chance of survival.

If you have been diagnosed with Stage 3 or Stage 4 Prostate Cancer and you believe you are the victim of medical malpractice, you should immediately consult with an attorney.
