Prostate cancer is the most common cancer found in men in the UK. In 2010 more than 41,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer. 10,700 men died of prostate cancer that same year.
What is prostate cancer?
Normally the growth of all cells is carefully controlled in the body. As cells die, they are replaced in an orderly fashion. Cancer can develop when cells start to grow in an uncontrolled way. If this happens in the prostate gland, prostate cancer can develop.
Prostate cancer can grow slowly or very quickly. Most prostate cancer is slow-growing to start with and may never cause any symptoms or problems in a man’s lifetime. However, some men will have cancer that is more aggressive or ‘high risk.’ This needs treatment to help prevent or delay it spreading outside the prostate gland.
Failing to diagnose prostate cancer or delayed follow up after diagnosis could lead to unnecessary death. If your doctor did not take the necessary steps to diagnose you then you may have a case for medical negligence.
You have the right to a reasonable life and our medical negligence solicitors will investigate your medical negligence compensation claim with the goal of getting maximum compensation to help you achieve that. You can be confident that we are leaders in pursuing medical negligence claims and gaining compensation for our clients.
If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer and believe a delay in your diagnosis or treatment has in turn resulted in additional pain and suffering that could have been prevented then you may be entitled to make a claim.
