Cancer Treatment Errors

Houston Cancer Treatment Errors Attorney

Researchers continue to make advancements in cancer treatment. Today, there are effective options for treating almost any type of cancer. However, just because these options are available doesn't mean that they are being used - or being used correctly.

The effective treatment of cancer requires early diagnosis, the correct use of cancer treatment options and proper administration of medication. But not all cancer victims receive the proper treatment. Others may receive the correct treatment or medication, but errors may be made during the administration process.

Problems with Radiation

The prognosis for many types of cancers has improved dramatically over the past few decades. Despite these advancements, medical mistakes can still occur during the administration process. Doctors must not only order the correct treatment, but they must also ensure that the treatment is administered correctly.

Radiation errors may be caused by or include:

  • Miscalibrated machines
  • Incorrectly positioning the patient
  • Miscalculating the dosage (overdosing)
  • Treating the wrong patient
  • Errors in timing

The effects of a cancer treatment error vary greatly. In some cases, an error will not significantly affect the patient's recovery. However, a serious mistake can lead to serious and even fatal results.
