Lung cancer is a type of cancer that starts spreading in the lungs. The main reason behind lung cancer is smoking. The stage of lung cancer refers to the extent to which the cancer has spread in the body. Lung cancer progresses through four stages, based on which the treatment is decided. It is better if lung cancer is diagnosed early to avoid fatal consequences.
Errors and negligence when taking the patient’s medical history for diagnosis of lung cancer.
Failing to warn and refer to a specialist for cancer diagnosis after knowing that you have persistent cough, coughing blood, back or chest pain.
Failure to order chest x-ray causing delay in diagnosis of lung cancer.
Mistakes by radiologists when interpreting x-rays or CT scans.
Mistakes by pathologists while interpreting the results when the tissue is examined under the microscope after biopsy
Misinterpretation of test results leading to further delay in treatment.
Misdiagnosis of lung cancer as pneumonia or asthma or any other respiratory disease leading to wrong prognosis and further spread of the lung cancer.
