Misdiagnosis & Delays In Treatment of Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer misdiagnosis and treatment errors may arise where patients suffer from a delay in diagnosis of the cancer due to a misdiagnosis of the symptoms, a delay in treatment or errors caused during bladder cancer surgery resulting in profound medical consequences for the patient. These can range from an exacerbation of symptoms, prolonged treatment and in some cases even fatal consequences. 

Types of Bladder Cancer Misdiagnosis & Treatment Delay Errors 

Whilst it is the priority of a medical professional to diagnose and treat cancer of the bladder, their level of care may fall short of the required standard causing further injury or harm. This may include:

  • A delay in carrying out a biopsy
  • Failure in providing the correct surgery and treatment options
  • A delay in treatment by way of not carrying out an X-ray, Ultrasound, CT or MRI Scan
  • Failure to treat bladder cancer  
  • A delay in carrying out a cystoscopy
  • A failure to carry out a blood test
  • Misdiagnosis of classic symptoms of bladder cancer
  • Failure of GP to refer patient for further investigations when required
  • And other bladder cancer misdiagnosis and treatment errors

If you or a loved one has been affected by a misdiagnosis or delay in treatment of bladder cancer which has prolonged or exacerbated the cancer, or has resulted in the death of a loved one, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
