Bowel cancer is a type of cancer which develops in the large bowel and grows rapidly when left untreated forming tumours inside the bowel. These tumours in turn cause bleeding in stools, irregular bowel movements, anaemia and severe pelvic cramps.
Sufferers of bowel cancer should be cared for by a multidisciplinary team of specialists, who will be responsible for the whole treatment. Mistakes and negligence by them during the diagnosis and treatment may lead to a life threatening situation for the patient. Examples of negligence may be some of the following:
Misdiagnosis of bowel cancer as other type of cancer leading to mistreatment/ delay in treatment.
Misinterpretation of test results by pathologist after a colonoscopy /biopsy resulting in misdiagnosis and wrong treatments.
GP fails to pick up the symptoms of bowel cancer and fails to refer to a gastroenterologist /specialist further delaying the treatment and causing severe deterioration of health conditions.
GP failure during initial clinical assessments and physical examination and failure in recording the medical history of patient leading to treatment failures and more complications.
Error in interpreting scans and blood tests causing further delay in diagnosis and treatment of bowel cancer.
Surgical errors or treatment errors by specialist causing further detrimental effects on health.
