Cervical cancer may be diagnosed in its early stages if a woman undergoes routine pap smear tests. The patient’s physician can remove precancerous cells using a minimally invasive medical procedure. Recovery time is usually quick. However, when a physician misreads a pap smear, they may not have identified abnormal cells that were present. A delayed diagnosis may allow the precancerous cells to advance to full blown cervical cancer. As a result, once the correct diagnosis is made, the patient may need invasive surgery as well as chemotherapy and radiation treatment. These procedures are painful on a physical and emotional level, and might have been avoided if the correct diagnosis had been made the first time. When victims pursue misread pap smear lawsuits, their damages might include pain and suffering as well as the damages associated with the additional medical treatment involved. In the worst cases, victims may pass away due to a delayed diagnosis. Their families may decide to file wrongful death misread pap smear lawsuits as a result.
