The delayed diagnosis of melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer, can have devastating consequences. While skin cancer is highly treatable when diagnosed and treated early on, it can be fatal when allowed to progress and spread.

Skin Cancer Misdiagnosis

When a patient displays a symptom of melanoma such as a suspicious mole, misdiagnosis can occur when doctors fail to take the proper next steps, such as removing the mole without a biopsy, or failing to refer the patient to a dermatologist.

When allowed to develop and spread, skin cancer can cause significant pain and suffering, requiring the patient to endure multiple surgeries. Skin cancer patients may also require rehabilitative care, personal attendant care and other expensive needs.

In the case of a wrongful death, surviving family members face untold emotional grief and often financial hardship as well. Our attorneys will work with you personally to determine how the delayed diagnosis of melanoma has changed your life, and how we can help.
