SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

When it comes to cervical cancer, regular screening is paramount. However, even with regular cervical screenings, it is still possible for medical professionals to sometimes misdiagnose or give a late diagnosis of cervical cancer, which can lead to more invasive or intensive treatment being required. It is currently the 17th most common cause of cancer deaths in the UK.

Sometimes, cervical cancer can be misdiagnosed as heavy periods or the menopause. If you are displaying the following symptoms, it's vital that you keep getting yourself checked:

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Unusual vaginal discharge
  • Pain or bleeding after sex
  • Changes in menstrual cycle

Late diagnosis or misdiagnosis can have devastating consequences. Cervical cancer is, according to Cancer Research, 100% preventable and, if caught early, can have a good survival rate. However, if left untreated, the cancer can grow and spread to other parts of the body, making it much more difficult to treat.

How do I know if I have a late or misdiagnosed cervical cancer claim?

It is only possible to claim compensation if there has been a breach of the duty of care from a health professional and it has resulted in harm or loss. If your cervical cancer diagnosis was weeks or months late but has NOT resulted in a change in the way you would have been treated, then it will be unlikely you can claim. However, if late or misdiagnosis resulted in more invasive or intensive treatment or has led to a terminal diagnosis, then you may have grounds for compensation.
