An interesting article in The Telegraph in Breast Cancer Awareness Week:

Whilst breast cancer can now be caught at an early stage, there have been some concerns regarding screening programmes and possible misdiagnosis that can lead to medical negligence claims.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which aims to raise awareness of the early signs and symptoms and prompt people to go for medical check-ups. The sooner cancer is caught, usually the better chances you will have to fight it. However, there are some occasions where medical errors occur and cancer is either not diagnosed, or a late diagnosis is received. The impact of which can be devastating to families.

If you feel that you have suffered as a result of a delay in diagnosis or a failure to appropriately treat your breast cancer, then we may be able to help. You can contact Graystons for free initial advice. We can also advise you on the range of funding options available to you, including whether you may be able to fund any legal claim under a “no win, no fee agreement”.
