Cancer Misdiagnosis Claims Isle of Wight

Detecting cancer at an early stage accompanied by a prompt referral for treatment is often crucial to a successful outcome for the patient.

Cancers do vary in their nature. There are also many different types of treatment. However, any delay in diagnosis and/or the treatment itself can be alarming for the patient and their family.
