About Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors 

Brain and spinal cord tumors are dangerous growths in the central nervous system. Even if they are benign, they usually need to be removed because they might pinch nerves or block essential pathways. They can cause several problems, including

  • Numbness
  • Speech problems
  • Vision problems
  • Hearing loss
  • Seizures 

The American Cancer Society estimates that around 25,000 malignant brain and spinal cord tumors are found every year, and about 18,000 people die from them annually. There is a less than 1% lifetime risk of developing brain and spinal cord tumors for adults. But these tumors are more common in children and make up about 1 in 4 childhood cancers. 

Early detection is crucial and should be done with imaging tests like MRIs, MRAs, MRVs, CT scans, and biopsies. These tumors can be treated with a variety of surgeries, radiation therapies, targeted drugs, and chemo drugs. Survival rates for brain and spinal cord tumors vary with location, age range, and overall health, but treatment and detection technology has vastly improved the outlook for recovery. 

Lawyers who help Patients who are Misdiagnosed or Diagnosed Late with Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors

A misdiagnosis or late diagnosis of brain and spinal cord tumors can cause multiple debilitating disorders. The central nervous system is the seat of control for many essential body functions. Patients who aren’t treated as soon as possible can have harrowing issues with sight, coordination, speech, and other areas that can diminish their quality of life. 

If you or a loved one have been misdiagnosed, or diagnosed late with brain and spinal cord tumors, and have suffered injury because of your doctor’s negligence, call the Porter Law Group for a free case evaluation. 

Suing for Medical Malpractice due to Late Diagnosis of Brain and Spinal Cord Tumors 

Doctors have state-of-the-art tools at their disposal to diagnose and effectively treat brain and spinal cord tumors early. However, there are still cases where they either fail to order the appropriate tests, order tests but don’t read the results, or fail to interpret results correctly. 

This sort of medical malpractice can have devastating effects. Instead of being diagnosed early, when treatment can work, cancerous tumors are allowed to grow and spread for months or even years.

However, not all cases of misdiagnosis are medical malpractice. It is not enough that your condition has worsened, or that you are suffering from increased pain to recover financial compensation. 

You need to establish that there was a doctor-patient relationship, that there was a deviation from the expected standard of care for patients with similar conditions. And that the deviation caused the damage. This can be tough to navigate, especially in the State of New York, where you have to be aware of the complex requirements for documentation, filing, and the statute of limitations to bring your case forward. 

The lawyers and board-certified medical experts at Porter Law Group can help you examine your case, and bring forward your medical malpractice claim. We work with experts in the medical field that can review your results, and testify on your behalf that the injury was caused by medical negligence.
