Cancer surgery is an operation to diagnose or treat cancer or help relieve symptoms caused by cancer.  With breast cancer, a cancer surgeon may remove the whole breast and with lung cancer, the entire lung may be removed.  Cancer surgery may also be used in conjunction with radiation, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and biological therapy.  When a cancer surgeon's level of care, skill or treatment falls below the standard of care and inflicts serious injury or death to a patient, medical malpractice may have occurred.  Unfortunately, even the best cancer surgeons can commit errors and mistakes that may result in serious injuries or wrongful death.

Cancer surgery malpractice may include:

  • Complications of Cancer Surgery;
  • Delay in Diagnosis or Diagnostic Errors of Cancer;
