It is important for women and their doctors to recognize the symptoms of cervical cancer.  An early diagnosis is often critical to a woman’s recovery.  Cervical cancer symptoms include abnormal bleeding, unusually heavy vaginal discharge, pelvic pain, pain during urination, bleeding after sexual intercourse, and bleeding between menstrual cycles.

It is important to know that many times cervical cancer is asymptomatic until the disease has progressed to a late stage.  For that reason, it is important for women to have regular cervical cancer screenings.  Cervical cancer screenings include both a pelvic examination and a pap smear.  Further testing may be required after the screening.  If a doctor or lab fails to diagnose cervical cancer because of negligence then the patient or her survivors may have a Georgia medical malpractice claim.

If you or a loved one has suffered from the failure to diagnose cervical cancer or the misdiagnosis of cervical cancer, you may be entitled to damages.  Please read our free report, Cancer: Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment Errors, and contact an Atlanta medical malpractice attorney directly at 770.518.1133 or via our online contact form to discuss your case.
