What the Doctor Took From You by Misdiagnosing Ovarian Cancer

Any diagnosis of ovarian cancer is devastating.  According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health, ovarian cancer is the most deadly form of female reproductive cancers*.
However, when ovarian cancer is misdiagnosed, your eventual diagnosis is even more devastating. 

When caught in its early stages, the five year survival rate is promising.  Approximately 94% of patients diagnosed with ovarian cancer before the cancer has spread from the ovaries live more than five years after diagnosis.  Yet, only 45% of all ovarian patients live five years or more from the time of diagnosis, and that number drops significantly as the disease is diagnosed in later stages*.

It’s Not Just Statistics

It isn’t just the chance of survival that has been taken from you by a misdiagnosis of ovarian cancer.  It is your ability to enjoy life.  It is your ability to mother your children, be a partner to your spouse, pursue your career, or finish your studies.  In addition, this could happen to your own mother, daughter, or even wife soon.

While we can’t begin to imagine your personal pain, we very much want to help you with your recovery after a failure to diagnose ovarian cancer.  Please read our free e-book I Have Cancer Should It Have Been Caught Earlier? for important information about your rights and contact an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney at 770.518.1133 or via our online contact form if your family has been hurt.
