Caring, Established Attorneys In Cases Involving Thyroid Cancer Misdiagnosis
Many forms of cancer are now highly treatable if detected early in their progression, but prognosis and survivability decline rapidly the longer they are left undiagnosed. This is certainly true of thyroid cancer, a still relatively rare but increasingly prevalent condition in our society.
In most cases, detection of thyroid cancer depends on a primary care physician taking patient complaints seriously. Common indicators worthy of follow-up include a lump in the neck, swollen lymph nodes, vocal changes and difficulty swallowing, among others. A doctor’s concern based on discovery of a lump or patient complaints should typically lead to a referral to an endocrinologist and diagnostic testing such as blood work, scan and/or biopsy.
