Q: As an Atlanta cancer misdiagnosis attorney do you think there is any benefit to seeking treatment at a specialized cancer center?
An Atlanta cancer misdiagnosis lawyer, who is not your physician, cannot tell you where it is best to seek treatment. However, an attorney can share the results of a recent study with you.
Researchers at The Cochrane Library recently reviewed the results of different studies and found that specialized cancer centers may help improve the outcomes for some cancer patients. Specifically, the study found that women with gynecological cancers often fared better at regional cancer centers or teaching centers than in general hospital settings. Research also indicated that women who got care at specialized cancer centers lived longer, on average, than women who got care in community or general care hospitals.
If you have late stage cancer or if you have suffered from the misdiagnosis of cancer and are now seeking treatment, then finding the right treatment may be even more critical for you. Whether a specialized cancer center is right for you is a decision that you should make with a trusted doctor.
While you make treatment decisions, you may also need to make legal decisions if you have been the victim of a cancer misdiagnosis in Atlanta.
