There is currently no routine screening process for early detection of ovarian cancer. However, if there is a family history of ovarian cancer or breast cancer at a young age, or multiple generations of colon, pancreatic or prostate cancer, your doctor should recommend genetic counseling and testing.

If you believe your doctor either failed to order the appropriate tests, ordered a test but didn’t read the results, or failed to interpret the test results correctly, call the Porter Law Group. If a doctor’s negligence resulted in your ovarian cancer progressing or in a worsening of your prognosis, then you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, and medical bills.

The lawyers at the Porter Law Group have secured millions of dollars* for women whose cancer diagnosis was delayed. We can recover compensation for you if your doctors:

  • failed to properly learn and respond to your pertinent family history.
  • failed to recommend genetic testing or perform a transvaginal ultrasound and biopsy
  • failed to perform the tests typically recommended for patients with similar symptoms.
  • failed to order appropriate follow-up tests.
  • treatment was delayed because your cancer was initially misdiagnosed.
  • a specimen/biopsy collection error resulted in inconclusive results or needed to be repeated, resulting in delayed treatment.
  • your lab work was reported or misinterpreted.
  • you had an abnormal test result, but follow-up care was not given.
  • ovarian cancer was diagnosed correctly, but treatment was not offered, delayed, or inappropriate for your stage or other health conditions.
