Cervical Cancer Misdiagnosis

Cervical cancer is the fifth leading cause of cancer death in women. About 10,370 cases of invasive cervical cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year and 3,710 women will die from it. Early detection and treatment of precancerous lesions increases the chances for long term survival. The 5-year survival rate for invasive cervical cancer that is caught at its earliest stage is nearly 100%!

Cervical precancers and early cancers often show no symptoms. But cervical cancer can usually be found early by having regular Pap tests. The Pap smear has been responsible for the 70% to 80% decline in death due to cervical cancer. The Pap screen can find changes in the cervix before the cancer develops.

If a woman has an abnormal Pap test, a Colposcopy should be done. Colposcopy is a procedure that uses a special microscope (called a colposcope) to look into the vagina and to closely examine the cervix.

If your doctor has failed to administer or properly read a Pap test and the resulting ommission caused the advancement of cervical cancer, call us.
