Failure to Diagnose or Misdiagnosis

If your doctor failed to take a biopsy of a mole or lesion or removed it without sending it to pathology for analysis and there was a later diagnosis of metastatic cancer, we can discuss with you whether you may be entitled to damages for the failure to initially diagnose melanoma. If your physician or dermatologist misdiagnosed melanoma, or failed to advise you how to monitor the growth of or changes in a mole or lesion, we have the experience to help you determine if you are entitled to compensation for your losses. To learn more, see our page on failure to diagnose and misdiagnosis.

If your doctor ignored symptoms of skin cancer and you developed metastatic melanoma, we can help you protect your rights. For more information, go to our page on late diagnosis of skin cancer.
