Spinal Tumour Treatment Delays & Diagnosis Errors

A spinal cord tumour is an abnormal mass of tissue located on the spinal cord which can be both cancerous and non-cancerous. Spinal cord tumour errors can occur where there has been a failure or delay in diagnosis, a delay in providing appropriate treatment, misinterpretation of scans and errors caused during the treatment of a spinal cord tumour.

Types of Spinal Cord Tumour Treatment Delays & Diagnosis Errors 

Healthcare professionals have a duty of care to provide prompt and appropriate treatment. Regretfully, in some instances spinal cord tumour errors can still arise. Such examples include:

  • A failure or delay in diagnosing a spinal cord tumour
  • Failures in acknowledging symptoms of spinal cord tumour such as back and neck pain and numbness to legs and arms
  • Delay in treatment for spinal cord tumours such as tumour to the coccyx, astrocytomas, ependymomas, primary bone tumours, meningioma’s and schwannomas.
  • A delay in diagnosing benign tumours such as chordomas, osteomas and malignant tumours including osteosarcomas, chondrosarcomas and fibrosarcomas.
  • Misinterpreation of scans and tests 
  • Errors in carrying out appropriate tests such as MRI
  • Misdiagnosis of a spinal tumour with other conditions such as sciatica and degenerative disc disease
  • Failures in carrying out follow up appointments in existing cancer sufferers. This can often lead to secondary tumours to the spine
  • Any many other types of spinal cord tumour errors 

If you or a loved has been affected by a spinal cord tumour error which has resulted in neurological disorders, paralysis or the exacerbation of the condition, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
