Colon Cancer Misdiagnosis

Colon cancer, also known as colorectal cancer, is the second most common cause of cancer-related deaths in men and women in the United States. It is also one of the most preventable.

Failure to Screen for Colon Cancer Is Medical Malpractice

It’s simple: With regular screening, colon cancer can be totally avoided. Even when lacking symptoms, a patient can be screened for polyps in the colon. If discovered before they become cancerous, these polyps can be removed and cancer can be avoided. If the polyp is cancerous and discovered early on, it can be easily treated and cured. All that is required is regular, thorough screenings; something in which your doctor should experienced and be consistently suggesting.

Misdiagnosis of Colon Cancer Is Avoidable

Your doctor may be an avid screener, but may not be using a watchful eye when diagnosing his or her patients. This can lead to missing a polyp that will then grow and develop into this deadly cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, those with no risk factors should begin regular colorectal screening at the age of 50. If there are risk factors or the presence of any colorectal cancer family history, your doctor knows that your screening should begin at a younger age. Colon cancer kills more than 50,000 people each year.
