When a Massachusetts doctor’s negligence results in Massachusetts medical malpractice, it is a tragedy for the patient and their family. A Massachusetts delayed diagnosis of cancer often results in severe emotional and physical pain, in addition to significant financial losses. Many cancers can be cured if diagnosed early. All can be treated to increase the ill person’s life span. A Massachusetts patient’s long term survival can depend on timely diagnosis and treatment. When cancer is not diagnosed until a later stage, the opportunity or period of time for effective treatment may have passed.

There are many common procedures that should be routinely used by Massachusetts doctors to check for cancer, including:

  • Massachusetts Biopsies
  • Massachusetts CAT Scans
  • Massachusetts PET Scans
  • Massachusetts MRI
  • Massachusetts Blood Tests
  • Massachusetts X-Rays
  • Massachusetts Colonoscopies
  • Massachusetts Mammogram's
  • Massachusetts Ultrasounds
  • Massachusetts PAP Smears

These procedures are especially important for high-risk Massachusetts patients and Massachusetts patients complaining of illness or abnormalities. A Massachusetts doctor should be aware of your family history, as well as your health risk factors and lifestyle, in order to make the best decisions regarding testing for cancer.

Early detection of cancer with these methods can prevent the spread of cancer and the need for expensive and painful treatment later on, such as chemotherapy and radiation.

It should not come as a surprise that it is difficult for a layperson to figure out whether you or your loved one has a legitimate medical malpractice personal injury claim arising out of a cancer misdiagnosis. It is, therefore, very important that you or your loved one promptly call our highly skilled Boston late cancer diagnosis personal injury lawyers about your Massachusetts cancer injury case.

Please call our Boston cancer lawyers today at (617) 787-3700 or email our cancer misdiagnosis attorneys at If you get the help of our Boston late cancer diagnosis lawyers, your medical malpractice case may settle without you ever having to bring a lawsuit against the responsible medical professionals or go to court. In order to get you a just amount of damages, our Boston, MA cancer mistake personal injury lawyers must show to the trier of fact that the other party is responsible for your medical malpractice injuries. The other party may have acted intentionally or negligently in causing your medical malpractice injuries and our Boston cancer lawyers are experts at showing such misconduct.

Intentional wrongdoing which causes you to sustain an injury is largely self-explanatory. To show medical negligence, however, with regard to a cancer misdiagnosis claim, four elements must be proven:

  1. Duty
  2. Breach
  3. Causation
  4. Damages

To demonstrate that a medical professional is responsible for your malpractice injuries, our Boston accident cancer mistake lawyers must first show that the party owed a duty to you. There must then be an additional showing that the medical professional breached the duty of care that was owed, and that in doing so, caused you or your loved one to sustain an injury as the direct result of their negligence.

For example, a Massachusetts doctor has a duty to exercise reasonable care when treating a Massachusetts patient. In the event that the Massachusetts doctor fails to exercise reasonable care and creates an unreasonably dangerous condition for the patient, the doctor will have acted negligently and may be found responsible for all damages that arise from the doctor’s negligence.
