Delay in lung cancer diagnosis.

+ Medical Negligence

Sara Westwood

My client was appropriately referred by his GP for a chest x-ray when he complained of a cough and shortness of breath.  The x-ray was reported to be normal and he was reassured by his GP.  Symptoms however persisted and he was referred again, 4 ½ months later, for another chest x-ray. 

This was reported as showing a mass on his lung. He was seen by a respiratory consultant who informed him the mass was present on the earlier x-ray but had been missed.  Fortunately, the delay did not significantly compromise his prognosis although the delay in treatment did mean the tumour had progressed to the surface of the lung and my client had the worry and upset that the delay could have impacted on life expectancy. 

Let us take it from here.
