Cancer Misdiagnosis


A cancer misdiagnosis robs you of the ability to receive potentially life-saving treatment during the earliest stages of the disease when it is most treatable. While diagnosis is not an exact science, doctors are expected to follow standards of care when diagnosing cancer; when they do not, the consequences can last a lifetime or be fatal. The Connecticut misdiagnosis attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC stand up for victims and their families.

Are you a victim of misdiagnosed cancer? We would be honored to speak with you about your legal rights and options.


To misdiagnose cancer limits a patient’s options, and often, his or her lifespan. We’ve seen this firsthand, in cases that absolutely broke our hearts. One of our clients went to his doctor complaining of a sore on his tongue. The doctor told him it was a canker sore. A year later, he found out that it was a stage four cancer that had spread throughout his body. A year after that, all medical science could do was make him comfortable in his final days.

Breast cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, and brain cancer are often misdiagnosed by family physicians, radiologists, or internists. They may fail to recognize the symptoms, fail to order appropriate tests or fail to read the test findings accurately.
