Preventable Disease

Cervical cancer is regarded by the medical profession as a preventable disease because pre-cancerous changes can be detected by pap smears obtained during routine pelvic examinations. Significant advances in medical knowledge have made it possible to effectively prevent and treat this illness through early detection, and thereby minimize the effects. Pap smears must however be carried out properly and interpreted by an experienced specialist.

Mistakes which can amount to cervical cancer medical malpractice can lead to a delay in diagnosis which may deprive patients of the chance for a cure and these include lost records, failing to realize the importance of a patient’s complaints, treating a patient inappropriately, misreading pap smears, inaccurate test results or failing to refer a patient to a cancer specialist.

Clinical Errors

Pap smears are tests performed during routine pelvic examination by inserting a speculum into the vagina and samples of living cells are removed using a spatula. These samples are then microscopically analyzed for the presence of cancerous or precancerous changes often in the absence of any symptoms. If cancer of the cervix or precancerous change is detected early then survival rates are very high with rapid and appropriate treatment. Early diagnosis as a result of pap smear screening could almost eliminate the chances of developing invasive cervical cancer. The most common mistakes leading to cervical cancer medical malpractice made by doctors include failure to :

  • test when a patient exhibits indicative symptoms
  • identify a cancerous mass in the cervix during a routine cervical examination
  • perform a pap smear
  • correctly interpret the pap smear or biopsy results;
  • recommend appropriate treatment options
  • react quickly to biopsy findings
  • arrange to have a biopsy performed when the physical examination results are abnormal

Medical Malpractice

The medical profession which includes consultants, doctors, nurses and hospital technicians usually provides a caring service with a high standard of excellence for their patients however there are occasions when things go wrong and if you have been injured as a result of a failure by the medical profession or if you are the dependent of someone who has died as a result of wrongful medical treatment then you may be entitled to financial compensation for cervical cancer medical malpractice.
