Quick Facts

SKIN CANCER MISDIAGNOSIS

Failure to Diagnose Skin Cancer

The most lethal type of skin cancer is melanoma. Early diagnosis is imperative to a patient’s outcome. Treatment of early skin cancer is almost always performed in a doctor’s office and is rarely painful. However, if skin cancer is not identified and allowed to spread, the treatment can be invasive and painful. If left untreated altogether, skin cancer can be fatal.

Examples of Medical Malpractice Related to Skin Cancer

Clients come to our law firm with stories of:

  • A doctor failing to test patient-identified spots or changes in moles
  • A physician failing to perform a shaved biopsy after looking at a suspicious mole or skin lesion
  • A doctor failing to offer routine skin cancer screening to a patient with a family history or other indicators of increased skin cancer risk
  • A pathologist failing to correctly interpret test results
  • Misdiagnosis of the type of skin cancer
  • Failure to aggressively treat identified skin cancer
  • Failure to biopsy removed growths or moles

The failure to timely diagnose skin cancer may result in cancer spreading where treatment is unlikely to permit a cure.
