Prostate cancer is the most common form of cancer in males but has the best survival rates of all common male cancers. But that depends on early detection, correct surveillance and treatment.
If you or a loved one has suffered a delay in diagnosis and treatment, it may have led to life changing injuries, or sadly, caused their death.
Doctors should be aware of common symptoms of prostate cancer so that it can be treated early. Symptoms such like:
- frequent urges to urinate, including at night
- difficulty commencing and maintaining urination
- blood in the urine
- painful urination and, less commonly, ejaculation
- difficulty achieving or maintaining an erection may be difficult
We can often obtain compensation if there was a failure to recognise these symptoms and refer to a specialist; a failure to perform the correct tests; a failure to interpret the test results or examine properly; or a failure to provide the right treatment.
We are specialist lawyers who understand the effects of negligent prostate cancer care can be difficult to discuss but we are experts that you can trust to give you the best possible advice and make you feel at ease.
Testicular cancer is rare but most common in men in their early 30s. Nearly all men survive testicular cancer but that depends on early treatment and diagnosis.
Testicular cancer should be suspected by a doctor if you have a lump or pain or aching of your testicle or a heaviness in the scrotal area.
If you or a loved one has suffered a delay in diagnosis and treatment, it may have led to surgery to remove the testicle (orchidectomy) and the need for chemotherapy or radiotherapy, which may have affected your fertility. Sadly, a delay may have caused the death of a loved one.
We can often obtain compensation if there was a failure to recognise the symptoms of testicular cancer and refer to a specialist; a failure to perform the correct tests; a failure to interpret the test results or examine properly; or a failure to provide the right treatment.
We are specialist lawyers who understand that the effects of negligent testicular cancer care can be difficult to discuss but we are experts that you can trust to deal with your case sensitively and make you feel at ease.
