Very pleased with Hampson Hughes staff and the way my case was dealt with. I have told several friends and family of your company.

Types of cancer compensation claims

A cancer diagnosis is made every two minutes in the UK. Although cancer may occur at any stage of life, the risk increases with age – over one third of diagnoses involve those aged 75 years or over, while fewer than 1% of all cancer diagnoses are made in patients aged 0-14 years.

Your cancer misdiagnosis claim could involve:

Delay in diagnosis

A delay in diagnosis may occur following a failure to arrange follow up testing. If you feel that your symptoms have been over looked, speak to us today for instant advice.

Incorrect referral

You could be eligible for compensation following any delay in receiving a referral to a relevant specialist – an incorrect referral could slow the progress of your treatment.

Misinterpretation of test results

Compensation may be available following a misinterpretation of your test results. Examples include a misinterpretation of X-rays, blood tests, or tissue smears.

Common types of cancer misdiagnosis

There are several types of cancer that are commonly misdiagnosed. If you feel that your symptoms were not recognised and subsequently were not treated within a reasonable time-frame, speak to us today. Commonly misdiagnosed cancers include:

Lung cancer

Lung cancer symptoms typically mirror the symptoms of common lung infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and tuberculosis.

Breast cancer

Your GP may misinterpret your breast cancer symptoms as symptoms of mastitis or fibrocystic breast disease.

Pancreatic cancer

Symptoms often closely reflect the symptoms of other related illnesses such as pancreatitis and diabetes.

Colorectal cancer

Symptoms  may be confused with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis.

Personal injury claim time limit

We advise speaking to us as soon as you believe that you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. Any cause for delay in beginning your claim may be taken into account regarding your personal injury claim time limit. For further information, please see our ‘personal injury claim time limit’ page or contact us today for instant answers and peace of mind.
