Unfortunately, this is not always the case. When it comes to medical mistakes in this area, the implication of any error can be devastating, long-lasting and often leaves people feeling embarrassed and mistrustful.

Endometriosis misdiagnosis claims
Endometriosis is a condition whereby the cells that line your womb start to grow tissue in other parts of the body, most commonly around the ovaries and fallopian tubes. It can affect other parts of the body such as the bladder and the lungs, but this is rare.
In endometriosis, this tissue thickens, breaks down and bleeds with your menstrual cycle. Your body does get rid of the broken-down tissue and blood very slowly, but while it’s there it can cause pain, swelling and scarring.
Endometriosis is a long-term condition that can have a significant impact on your life, but receiving the correct treatment at the start can certainly help the condition to feel more manageable and help prevent complications.
Symptoms of endometriosis
Symptoms of endometriosis can include:
- Dysmenorrhea – painful periods
- Chronic pain in your lower tummy or back (pelvic pain) – usually worse during your period
- Pain during or after sex
- Pain when urinating
- Painful bowel movements
- Feeling sick, constipation, diarrhoea, or blood in your urine during your period
- Difficulty getting pregnant
What happens if endometriosis is left untreated?
If endometriosis has been left undiagnosed or untreated, your symptoms may worsen. Some people develop complications such as fertility problems, ovarian cysts, adhesions or bladder and bowel problems; which can have a significant impact on your long-term physical and mental health.
Can I make a claim?
If a medical mistake has been made or poor treatment given, then you may be entitled to compensation.

"Now we have peace of mind"
My husband, Nick, went back and forth to the doctors for a long time and tried everything the doctor recommended. But his illness got worse, to the point that he was in agony.
In the end we got so desperate that we asked for a referral. The doctor was reluctant, so we had to consult a private hospital. That’s when we found out there was a tumour. It took years from the onset of his illness to finally start cancer treatment.
He used to be a man with a lot to live for, but in the end he was in so much pain that he withdrew from the family. He became angry that nobody had helped him sooner, and the legal team were able to give him the validation that he was desperately seeking. The NHS confirmed if they had done more, Nick would still be alive today.
