3/31/2012Your symptoms concerned you and your doctor. Follow up tests were ordered to determine whether or not you had cancer. When the test results came back negative, your initial reaction was likely one of tremendous relief, but as your symptoms continue unabated by other medications or therapies you may have become concerned. What if the radiologist misinterpreted your test results? What if you really do you have cancer?

If you have lingering concerns about your health and you think that you may have been the victim of a radiologist's medical error, then it is important to protect yourself and to consult a Georgia failure to diagnose attorney.
Protect Yourself if You Suspect a Cancer Misdiagnosis
If you think that your test results may have been misinterpreted it is important to:
- Talk to your doctor about your concerns. Ask if a second radiologist can look at the results or if the tests need to be performed again.
- Get a second opinion. Go see a new doctor about your symptoms and for an accurate diagnosis.
- Contact an Atlanta cancer lawyer for help.
You may need to be aggressive and persistent so that an accurate diagnosis is made and you get the care that you need.
