Failure to Diagnose Skin Cancer/Melanoma

Contact a Medical Malpractice Firm That Has Achieved Multiple Eight-Figure Settlements

Despite the fact that a failure to diagnose skin cancer or melanoma can have devastating consequences, dermatologists and other doctors make medical mistakes that lead to serious, life-threatening and fatal skin cancer. Examples of medical malpractice relating to melanoma include:

  • A failure to biopsy a mole or lesion for analysis
  • A failure to advise patients on how to properly monitor changes in a moles, lesions and other signs of skin cancer
  • A misdiagnosis of a melanoma as benign, resulting in the spread of cancer to other areas of the body

Did your dermmatologist/doctor take a wait-and-see approach to your skin cancer symptoms? Did your doctor fail to tell you how to look for and recognize potentially cancerous moles and lesions? Did a misdiagnosis of a melanoma as benign result in the spread of cancer to other parts of your body?
