Delays in diagnosing cancer

The government is facing claims that it is risking the lives of young women under 25 years of age in England by not giving them cervical smear tests.

Lib Dem MP Andrew George and Tory MP Mark Spencer are backing the campaign for the cervical screening system to be reviewed.

The mother of Mercedes Curnow, who died from cervical cancer, has led a petition calling for the screening age to be lowered to 20, bringing it in line with Scotland and Wales. This petition has been signed by 120,000 people.

Swain & Co.’s specialist medical negligence solicitors support the petition also as early detection of cancer is vital to ensure patients get the treatment they need in the early stages. Delays in diagnosis can lead to prospects of successful treatment diminishing or that more invasive treatment is required.

This was the case for 22 year old Natalie Carney who is now awaiting a hysterectomy after several visits to her GP failed to see her referred to a specialist. This delay in diagnosis has led to Natalie having to undergo more invasive treatment.

If you have suffered from delays in diagnosis for cancer, you could be entitled to compensation. You would benefit from speaking to one of our medical negligence solicitors.

We offer free initial advice, can act on a no win no fee basis and guarantee you 100% of your compensation.
