Misdiagnosis & Delays In Treatment of Skin Cancer (Melanoma)

Skin cancer errors and medical negligence may arise where patients suffer from a delay in diagnosis of the cancer, a delay in treatment or errors caused during surgery resulting in serious consequences for the patient. These can involve increased treatment, lengthened recovery periods and exacerbation of the cancer itself.

Types Of Misdiagnosis & Delays In Treatment of Skin Cancer

Whilst it is the priority of a medical professional to diagnose and treat skin cancer, 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 sentinel lymph node biopsy
  • A delay in treatment by way of not carrying out an X-ray, MRI and CT scan 
  • A failure to carry out a blood test
  • A misdiagnosis of classical symptoms
  • Failure to treat skin cancer
  • Failure in providing the correct and appropriate surgery
  • Failure of a GP to refer a patient to hospital when required
  • And other skin cancer misdiagnosis and treatment errors 

If you or a loved one has been affected by a skin cancer error which has prolonged or exacerbated the condition, or has resulted in the death of a loved one, we are here to help.
