Risk Factors

This is the second most fatal carcinoma which almost always arises from a polyp which is often readily demonstrable for years that may bleed intermittently before an invasive and ultimately incurable cancer develops. Most medical malpractice colon cancer settlements are in relation to misdiagnosis due to a failure to properly evaluate complaints of rectal bleeding.

The following are considered to be risk factors for colon cancer :-

  • high fat, high calorie and low fibre diets
  • people over the age of 50.
  • benign growths called polyps on the wall of the colon
  • women with a history of cancer of the ovary, uterus or breast
  • the condition known familial polyposis unless treated
  • ulcerative colitis
  • close relatives of a person who has had cancer of the colon

Clinical Testing

Various tests are used to establish the diagnosis of colon cancer including :-

  • barium enema x-rays
  • sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy to remove tissue for examination
  • blood tests.
  • digital rectal examination may reveal abnormalities
  • X-rays can reveal polyps or other changes
  • biopsy which is the removal of a tissue sample for microscopic examination by a pathologist

Late Diagnosis

Colon cancer medical malpractice settlements usually result from late diagnosis amounting to clinical negligence which is defined as a departure from accepted standards of care which may cause harm to a patient and can include improper treatment, misdiagnosis, failure to treat, failure to perform appropriate follow-up, delay in treatment and prescription errors. Early diagnosis may mean less pain and suffering, less financial hardship and a greater chance of survival. If your condition was worsened by clinical negligence we can help you assert your rights and get the settlement that you need and deserve.
