We've got your prostate cancer claim covered

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men, affecting 47,500 each year. Early diagnosis and effective treatment can massively improve your chances of recovery, so it can be a devastating blow if you’ve experienced medical negligence in relation to your cancer diagnosis or treatment.

 

If you or a loved one have received an incorrect diagnosis or negligent treatment of prostate cancer, we want to help you. Our expert solicitors could help you to receive the compensation that you are entitled to.

 

 

PROSTATE CANCER AND MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE 

In most cases, medical professionals provide prostate cancer patients with adequate care and correct diagnoses. However, if a medical professional fails to treat your condition correctly, this could have devastating effects causing the cancer to grow and spread. 

The most common types of prostate cancer claims include:

 

  • Misdiagnosis or a late diagnosis of your prostate cancer
  • Failure to make a fast referral to a relevant specialist
  • Incorrect staging of your cancer
  • Avoidable complications during treatment and care

 

Prostate cancer usually develops at a slow rate so if the symptoms are spotted quickly enough, the cancer can be prevented from spreading and treatment can be more effective. Unfortunately, medical professionals sometimes fail to spot the signs or will incorrectly diagnose the symptoms as a less severe condition. 

 

Prostate cancer has commonly been misdiagnosed as

  • Urinary tract infection
  • Prostatitis (inflammation or swelling of the prostate gland) 
  • Enlarged prostate

 

What is the impact of prostate cancer negligence?

If there was a delay in the diagnosis or treatment of your prostate cancer, it could have a significant impact on your wellbeing. Not only can it impact the outcome of your condition, but it can also cause unnecessary distress to you and your loved ones.

The treatment you receive will depend on the staging as well as other factors such as any other health conditions you may have. If your cancer has been staged incorrectly, this could result in the wrong type of treatment being given.
