Scottsdale Misdiagnosis of Prostate Cancer Attorneys
One of the most common cancers to affect men is prostate cancer. When diagnosed early, the survival rate for men diagnosed with prostate cancer is very high. In fact, it is recognized as one of the most treatable cancers in men. However, when the cancer is diagnosed late or misdiagnosed, treatment may be less effective or non-effective.
If a doctor failed to recognize symptoms of or diagnose prostate cancer in you or a loved one, it is advisable to discuss your situation with a Phoenix medical malpractice lawyer. Knapp & Roberts can help you explore your options and pursue the financial compensation you need and deserve.

Diagnosing Prostate Cancer
We count on doctors to recognize signs and symptoms of illness and disease. We also rely on them to administer proper tests and exams to reach a diagnosis. When a man is experiencing specific symptoms — including difficulty urinating, blood in urine or weak flow — a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test should be administered.
Treatment for prostate cancer that is diagnosed early is usually extremely effective. However, if a doctor fails to diagnose prostate cancer, the disease may progress and aggressive and potentially harmful treatment may be necessary. Additionally, the cancer may progress to the point where treatment isn't effective.
At Knapp & Roberts, we work to hold negligent doctors and health care professionals accountable for the delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer, including prostate cancer. If you have suffered due to a doctor's negligence or if you have lost a loved one after a delayed diagnosis, we can help.
