Delayed or Misdiagnosis of Cancer Lawsuits

  • $7,250,000 Wrongful Death-Midtrial Settlement (Illinois): Pap smears and mammograms are two routine and regular tests ordered to identify cancer in its early stages-when it is curable. When a doctor or hospital misreads pap smears or mammograms, the result can be catastrophic. In this case, a young mother of four children had a routine pap smear that was misread. She subsequently died after suffering a long, painful course with cervical cancer.
  • $3,250,000 Wrongful Death-Midtrial Settlement (Illinois): Pap smears and mammograms are not the only kind of tests that can uncover cancer while it is curable. Even routine procedures like hemorrhoidectomies-the surgical removal of hemorrhoids-can reveal important information. Anytime tissue is removed from the body-tonsils, hemorrhoids, etc.-the tissue is sent to a pathologist to look for signs of diseases like cancer. In this case, a pathologist missed clear signs of leukemia in hemorrhoid tissue, which is a location where it rarely appears. As a result, a mother of three young children died.
