Good evening and welcome. I am so sorry to hear about your cancer. Yes, what you are describing certainly suggests that malpractice may have occurred by virtue of your physician's failure to investigate the possibility of cancer more thoroughly when you first went in. It would be prudent to retain a malpractice attorney as soon as possible. Your attorney will retain a doctor to review your records and render his professional medical opinion as to whether the first physician was negligent. This opinion is what matters, not yours or mine, as only another doctor is sufficiently familiar with the standard of medical care to determine whether there was truly malpractice.
There is a one year statute of limitations for malpractice claims in CA, which means that you MUST file your lawsuit within one year after you first learned or should have reasonably learned that there was malpractice. You can locate a malpractice attorney here.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
Are you still with me?
