Skin Cancer Malpractice Cases

Posted by Frank Spector | Jul 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

Summer is in full swing and here in Maryland it has been very hot and sunny. Exposure to the sun even for a short amount of time can cause damage to the skin. More and more young people are developing skin cancer from not using the proper sunscreen protection and from the increased use of tanning beds.

Everyone should do a regular self exam to look for any discolorations that change in size or even in color. If there is a spot that looks like it has uneven borders (not round) you should have that checked by a dermatologist (skin doctor).

If there is a suspicious spot on your skin, you may need to have a sample tested, This is called a biopsy. A biopsy will let you know if it is cancerous or not.

In skin cancer cases we have handled, a doctor fails to take a biopsy and tells the patient that it is just a “sun freckle.” A biopsy is an easy test that does not hurt and does not cost a lot.

The two types of the most common skin cancer are basal cell and melanoma. Melanoma is the more serious kind so early detection is critical.

If you suspect that your doctor failed to diagnose skin cancer, call us toll free at 1-800-299-HURT. Or you can fill out the contact form on this page or on any page of our website.
