A chest X-ray is important in lung cancer misdiagnosis cases.
This is a very important area of investigation.
To get a better understanding of why this is the case here is a case study we recently reviewed.
In this case study a woman went to the hospital complaining of chest pain and chest congestion.
The doctor ordered X-Rays of her chest to be done.
After completing the tests, the radiologist who interpreted the test said that everything looked normal and this information was relayed to the patient.
Almost two years passed and the patient had more severe chest pains.
She returned to the hospital and voiced her complaints to her doctors.
They then ordered more X-Rays and scans to be done of the chest area.
This time a tumor was discovered on one of her lungs.
More tests revealed that the cancer had metastasized and spread into her lymph nodes and into her brain.
When a medical malpractice case was filed for a failure to treat/misdiagnosis of lung cancer all of the experts agreed that first X-Ray clearly revealed red flags which should have informed the doctors that the patient needed cancer treatment.
If you think that your, or your loved one’s lung cancer, breast cancer, or any other cancer, was misdiagnosed due to a failure to correctly read an X- Ray or other scan, this is what we invite you to do if your matter happened in Maryland.
