Cervical Cancer Solicitors for Misdiagnosis, Missed Detection & Negligence Claims


The importance of regular cervical screening - known as a smear test - is well known, and yet the number of women attending has hit a 20-year low. A smear test checks the health of the cervix, and as the NHS state, it is not a test for cancer, it is a test to help prevent cancer.

Read our blog for more information about why smear tests are so important. 

The early stages of cervical cancer are notoriously difficult to diagnose, which is why regular screenings are so important, but unfortunately, there are cases when results have been misinterpreted following a screening test, leading to misdiagnosis

How do I make a Cervical Cancer Misdiagnosis Claim?

Although mistakes are thankfully rare, there are some common stages of treatment where misdiagnosis may occur.

Cancer symptoms can be mistakenly attributed to heavy periods or the onset of the menopause, delaying diagnosis.

Cancer can be correctly diagnosed but then followed by the wrong type of treatment.

Smear test results can be incorrectly processed which resulted in misdiagnosis.
