Thyroid Cancer – Understanding the Symptoms

The thyroid is located at the base of the neck; it produces hormones that regulate a number of things, including body temperature, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate. Initially, thyroid cancer can be asymptomatic. However, as the condition progresses, symptoms can become apparent.

The symptoms that are typically associated with thyroid cancer include the following:

  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck
  • Pain in the throat and neck
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Vocal changes (including hoarseness)
  • A lump on the neck that could be felt through the skin

If you exhibited or are exhibiting any of the symptoms listed above, you might have thyroid cancer and should be medical evaluated. What doctor can diagnose thyroid cancer? A doctor specializing in thyroid cancer and throat cancer can make the diagnoses; however, even alleged experts on this condition can make mistakes.

Can Thyroid Cancer Be Misdiagnosed?
Yes, thyroid cancer can be misdiagnosed. In fact, the condition can be easily misdiagnosed. There could be a misdiagnosis of the specific type of thyroid cancer – as there are different types of thyroid cancers, some of which are more aggressive. In addition, because of similarities in symptoms, thyroid cancer could be misdiagnosed as Lyme Disease, Graves Disease, thyroid nodules, thyroid disorders, and neck cancer, for example.

Understanding Medical Malpractice and Your Right to Sue

If your doctor did not diagnose your thyroid cancer correctly, you might have grounds to sue; specifically, you might have grounds to sue based on medical malpractice. The concept of medical malpractice is based on the fact that doctors owe their patients a duty of care. That is, if a patient-doctor relationship exists (the doctor agreed to treat and the patient agreed to be treated), doctors owe their patients a duty of care – the duty to treat them with the highest level of care and skill.

Unfortunately, doctors can breach their duty of care. Failing to diagnose a condition, delaying a diagnosis, and failing to start treatment promptly, for instance, are examples of a breached duty of care. When a doctor breaches his or her duty of care, patients are put at risk of suffering harm. For instance, the failure to diagnose can result in a lack of treatment and the progression of the medical condition.

When a doctor breaches his or her duty of care towards you, you can sue the doctor. What about the hospital? Based on vicarious liability (which states that employers can be held accountable for the actions of their employees), you can sue the hospital.

If you are interested in learning more about your right to sue the doctor for medical malpractice or sue the hospital for the negligence of their doctors, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with our attorneys who can file a lawsuit for thyroid cancer misdiagnosis and medical negligence.

What Should You Do?

If your doctor did not diagnose your throat cancer, your cancer may have progressed and resulted in additional harm. If your doctor made a medical error in diagnosis of your thyroid cancer, you might have grounds to sue. There are a number of things that you should do to prepare to take action against the doctor or the hospital.

Consider the following recommendations:

  • Take photos of any visible symptoms
  • Take photos of any worsening symptoms
  • Seek medical care – do not be afraid to seek multiple medical opinions
  • Follow your treatment as soon as you receive a diagnosis
  • Gather all relevant medical records
  • Gather records associated with lost wages related to the misdiagnosis
  • Seek the legal assistance of Los Angeles lawyers who can sue for thryroid cancer wrong diagnosis

If your thyroid cancer was misdiagnosed or not treated properly, your condition likely worsened. Based on the concept of medical malpractice, you can sue the doctor because the doctor failed to diagnose and misdiagnosed your thyroid cancer.

File Your Claim on Time

Without a doubt, you can sue if your doctor misdiagnosed your thyroid cancer. However, you could potentially lose your right to sue. That is, you could lose your right to sue if you fail to file your claim within the appropriate length of time. This is because your claim is subject to a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations determines the total length of time that claimants have to pursue their claims; if they do not file their claims on time, they will lose the right to sue.

How long do you have to file your lawsuit for the failure to diagnose throat cancer? In California, victims of medical malpractice are subject to one of two statutes of limitations:

  • Three years from the date of injury
  • One year from the date of discovery of the injury

To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the statute of limitations that applies to your claim, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance with the experts at our firm at your earliest convenience.
