Colorectal (Colon) Cancer

Colorectal cancer is the third most common type of cancer among Americans. Though it is anticipated that nearly a quarter of a million Americans will be diagnosed with it this year, it is a disease that is still not often discussed openly. That is why it is so important to contact a Colorectal Cancer Attorney or Colorectal Cancer Lawyer without delay. The statistics are even more alarming given the fact that it is one of the most easily treatable forms of cancer if caught early, as it should be when doctors use proper screening and follow-up tests.

Yet despite its prevalence and the ready availability of diagnostic tools, it is one of the most common types of cancers in which patients receive misdiagnoses and delayed diagnoses, many times costing them their lives. Contacting an experienced Law Firm can help you find out where the doctors or hospital went wrong. If you or a loved one has received misdiagnosis and delayed diagnosis you should contact a law firm immediately.

Colorectal cancer often develops slowly over a period of years, with most beginning as a polyp, which is a tumor or growth of tissue, in the colon or rectum. The cancer stems from a type of polyp known as adenoma, which can develop into a form of cancer known as adenocarcinoma and accounts for over 95 percent of the cases. Screening can lead to finding and removing polyps early, before they turn into cancer. There are some other, more rare types of colorectal tumors in addition to adenocarcinoma, which begin in different areas of the colon and rectum, and may cause different symptoms.

The area of the rectum, along with any of the four sections of the colon, may be the site of the adenocarcinoma’s origin. The cancer can begin in the inner layer, but may later metastasize (spread) to some of the other layers. The location helps indicate the stage of the cancer. Failure to conduct appropriate diagnostic tests, especially in light of symptoms, along with failure to make a timely diagnosis, are suggestive of medical malpractice. We can help you determine if this occurred in your situation. As cancers of the colon and rectum develop slowly, doctors have years to screen for polyps and prevent cancer from developing. If you feel that your doctor has failed to conduct appropriate diagnostic tests and failed to make a timely diagnosis, you should contact us to find out what your options are as far as implementing a malpractice lawsuit. The initial consultation with a our law firm is free, and encouraged to ensure that all your rights are protected.
