Misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis of cancer

Medical negligence claims can involve a misdiagnosis or a delay in a cancer diagnosis, but it’s not enough to show that a delayed cancer diagnosis and treatment was negligent. Proof that loss or injury has resulted from this delay is also needed. For example, if the delay was relatively short, bringing a negligence claim may not be possible if it can’t be shown that this delay has resulted in a worse outcome, such as reduced life expectancy, or that it has made less invasive treatment impossible.
