Without proper treatment and care, a seemingly small mole can develop into serious skin cancer. If you showed your mole, lesion or other skin condition to your doctor and he or she failed to take the necessary steps to accurately diagnose your condition, you may have a medical malpractice claim.
Skin cancer can be life threatening, especially if it turns into Stage 3 or Stage 4 melanoma. At Furr & Henshaw, we understand how serious skin cancer can be for you and the impact it can have on your family. We are committed to helping you seek justice and compensation for your injuries after a medical professional failed to diagnose your skin cancer.
Contact our attorneys about your skin cancer misdiagnosis. We provide free initial consultations so we can answer your questions, address your concerns and help you get the support you need throughout the legal process.
Handling Cases Involving All Types of Skin Cancer
When a doctor or medical professional misdiagnoses your skin cancer, it can be devastating. Whether you have a mole that a doctor failed to biopsy for cancerous cells or a doctor diagnosed your benign cancer as malignant, it can have serious effects on your life.
At our firm, we assist clients who have all types of skin cancer, including benign tumors and malignant cancer. This includes:
- Basal skin cell carcinoma
Squamous cell skin carcinoma
Skin cancer can develop from a mole or be the result of extended exposure to UV rays without sunscreen. Regardless of the cause, your doctor should perform tests to determine the type, size and scope of your skin condition. If your doctor fails to perform the tests that a reasonable medical professional would perform, he or she can be held liable for malpractice. Likewise, if a medical professional misdiagnoses or fails to recognize the signs of skin cancer in those test results, we can work to hold him or her accountable for negligence.
