Prostate Cancer Misdiagnosis

New cases of prostate cancer are growing each year in Pennsylvania. Despite the fact that there have been tremendous advances in the treatment as well as diagnosis of prostate cancer these technologies are nullified if the initial diagnosis and testing is done incorrectly. Also, the timing of the diagnosis has a significant impact on the odds of the prescribed course of treatment working effectively. If you, or a loved one, have been diagnosed incorrectly it is in your best interest to consult with a Kennett Square Prostate Cancer Misdiagnosis Attorney.

Treatment and Risks for Prostate Cancer

If a cancer diagnosis is made in a timely fashion the odds of the patient surviving and moving on with their life increase. Many forms or cancer, if detected early on, exhibit a tremendous response to treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and or surgery. Mistakes can occur during surgery as well, thereby further increasing risks to your health. In regards to prostate cancer early diagnosis and treatment can result in a complete and total cure.

By comparison, if your diagnosis is not made in time that can ultimately result in removal of the prostate. This procedure is known as a prostatectomy and is surgical removal of the prostate. In addition, late prostate cancer diagnosis can increase the odds of the cancer spreading as well as recurring. Also, the later a diagnosis is made the shorter the lifespan of the patient may become.
