Bowel Cancer Misdiagnosis Compensation Claims

If an error by a medical professional has resulted in misdiagnosis of bowel cancer, you may be eligible to make bowel cancer misdiagnosis claims. Bowel cancer develops when the cells lining the bowels starts to grow uncontrollably. As people age, little lumps known as polyps grow inside the rectum or the colon and these can become cancerous. The risk of bowel cancer can be reduced if these polyps are removed.

In the UK, more than 35,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year. Luckily, for a large number of people, bowel cancer is detected at an early stage which makes it possible for them to undergo treatment and make a full recovery. However, there are certain cases where patients are only able to find out that they are suffering from bowel cancer when the cancer has reached its final stages or when it is not possible to avoid the catastrophic outcome of the disease.

According to studies and statistics, bowel cancer accounts for about 10% of all deaths and is in fact one of the most common causes of death in the UK. Bowel cancer can spread to different body parts if it is not treated in a timely manner and for this reason, it is important that it is diagnosed at an early stage.

Bowel Cancer Symptoms

There are a number of symptoms of bowel cancer. Common ones include:

  • Bleeding from the rectum
  • change in normal bowel habits
  • swelling in the abdomen or rectum
  • unexplained weight loss
  • pain in the abdomen
  • lethargy
  • vomiting
  • iron deficiency

If you experience symptoms of bowel cancer, it is important for you to seek medical attention. Your G.P will then be required to take a complete history of your symptoms and diagnose your condition. If your G.P has failed to make a proper diagnosis or has misdiagnosed bowel cancer, it can give rise to bowel cancer misdiagnosis claims.
