Cervical Cancer Malpractice Lawyers
Like all cancers, cervical cancer is much more likely to be cured if it is diagnosed early and treated immediately.
The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus. The cervix connects the upper part of the uterus to the vagina.
Cervical cancer can usually be detected early with the Pap test. A Pap test (also known as the Pap smear test) is a medical procedure in which a sample of cells from the cervix is collected and spread (smeared) on a slide. The cells are examined under a microscope in order to look for cancer or abnormal cells that could lead to cancer.
Sometimes the doctor who examines the Pap smear negligently fails to identify cancer or fails to correctly report the findings to the patient's gynecologist. At other times, a gynecologist fails to take timely and acceptable action in response to a suspicious Pap smear result. In these situations, you may be a victim of medical malpractice.
