$1.2 Million For Man Who Suffered From Undiagnosed Prostate Cancer

Home / $1.2 Million For Man Who Suffered From Undiagnosed Prostate Cancer

Compensation: $1.2 Million

This medical malpractice and wrongful death case involved the failure to screen and test for, diagnose and appropriately treat for prostate cancer in a fifty-nine-year-old man who was a patient with his long-time primary care physician. By the time his prostate cancer was diagnosed, it was Stage IV and metastatic. His cancer — having gone undiagnosed and untreated for almost three years — had metastasized and spread throughout his body including into his skeletal system (scapula, pelvis, skull base), was terminal, and had virtually no chance of cure. When his cancer was finally diagnosed, the only modality of treatment available to him was painful medical castration hormone therapy, chemotherapy, radiation, and extensive pain medication and palliative care. His condition, if timely and properly diagnosed, could have been treatable and likely curable, by what would have been a fairly routine surgical resection.
