A doctor's failure to diagnose cancer can have disastrous consequences. The longer the cancer is undiagnosed, the lower the patient's probability of survival. Even if a doctor realizes their negligence and diagnoses the condition, the cancer may have already reached a stage that requires aggressive treatments such as radiation therapy or chemotherapy that would have otherwise been avoided. Highly treatable cancers that remain undiagnosed can develop into a terminal stage, causing undue pain and suffering, and even death.
