SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS

together

Finding out you have ovarian cancer is life changing, but being misdiagnosed or given a late diagnosis can be devastating. Ovarian cancer is the 15th most common cancer in the UK, and while it only accounts for 2% of all new cancer cases, discovering that medical negligence has contributed to misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis can mean you might have endure more invasive, intensive treatment; or, in some cases, it may result in a terminal prognosis.

Sometimes, symptoms of ovarian cancer do not become apparent until a later stage. This means it is vital that your doctor picks up any signs as quickly as possible and sends you for appropriate tests and scans, or refers you to a specialist in a timely manner.

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

A compensation claim can only be brought if there has been a breach of the duty of care by medical professionals, which has resulted in harm or loss to you. It may be possible to claim compensation if:

  • Your ovarian cancer was misdiagnosed
  • Your ovarian cancer was diagnosed late due to medical negligence, and resulted in more aggressive or invasive treatment being required
  • Correct tests were not carried out
  • Scans or biopsy were not given or misread
  • Blood tests were not taken or misread

It is usually not possible to claim compensation if a late diagnosis would not have changed the end result.
