Ohio Medical Malpractice Attorneys Handling Kidney Cancer Misdiagnosis Cases
Kidney cancer or renal cancer can be difficult to diagnose because some symptoms mimic those of other illnesses. For example, a physician might diagnose kidney infections, cysts and benign tumors instead of identifying cancer. This can result in a significant delay in treating the real condition — cancer of the kidneys. Failing to promptly treat this condition can result in cancer cells spreading to other organs, decreasing the patient's quality of life and increasing the probability of death.

We are lawyers who recognize that most doctors are doing a great job and putting patient safety first in their practices. When a doctor decides to make choices that endanger patients — and that could be me, you, our children, anyone — by not paying proper attention to important details like whether a test shows signs of renal cancer, we help our clients hold doctors and their insurance companies responsible. That helps improve the system for everyone. — Partner Nicholas A. DiCello
Diagnosing Kidney Cancer
It is not very difficult to diagnose kidney cancer. Blood tests, urine tests, X-rays, MRIs, ultrasounds and other tests are diagnostic tools at the disposal of physicians. The trick is to order these tests in the first place so that the patient can begin treatment or the physician can rule out cancer. When a patient's cancer remains untreated because a doctor was negligent and failed to order the appropriate tests, he or she is probably able to seek damages and compensation.
Examples of Negligence in Kidney Cancer Cases
Failure to diagnose cancer can negatively affect a patient's prognosis. We advocate for clients whose cancer was undiagnosed when a physician:
- Failed to order the tests that could rule out cancer
- Misread the diagnostic test results from X-rays or MRIs
- Failed to order a biopsy when tests were inconclusive
