Many of the 150,000 people who were diagnosed with colorectal cancer last year have something to be grateful for, though it may not seem like it.  Cancer is the diagnosis no one wants to hear - especially when the diagnosis is colorectal cancer, which is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States.

It is better to hear the diagnosis – however difficult it is – then to live with the misdiagnosis of colorectal cancer.  The misdiagnosis of colon cancer or rectal cancer can have devastating, potentially fatal, consequences.

An Atlanta medical malpractice attorney cannot prevent a doctor from making an incorrect diagnosis.  However, an Atlanta medical malpractice lawyer can encourage everyone with specific symptoms or risk factors to be tested for cancer and to seek a second opinion so that any cancer can be caught and treated as early as possible.
