Doctors have at their disposal state-of-the-art tools to identify and diagnose colon and rectal cancer at an early stage. But too often, they either fail to order the appropriate tests, order a test but don’t read the results, or fail to interpret the test results correctly. This sort of medical malpractice can have devastating effects. Instead of being diagnosed early, when treatment can work, cancerous tumors are allowed to grow and spread for months, or even years.
The lawyers at the Porter Law Group have secured millions of dollars* for people whose colon and rectal cancer diagnosis was delayed. We can recover compensation for you if your doctors:
- failed to order timely colonoscopies or other surveillance tests for you.
- failed to properly read or interpret your surveillance images.
- failed to order a timely biopsy for you.
- failed to properly interpret your biopsy results.
