Oncology Malpractice

Oncologists are physicians who specialize in diagnosing and treating cancer. There are many ways to treat cancer and the type of treatment will depend on the type of cancer. Options include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Oncology malpractice occurs when an oncologist fails to provide treatment in accordance with generally accepted medical standards. If you or a loved one has been injured due to oncology malpractice, DeFrancisco & Falgiatano Personal Injury Lawyers has extensive experience handling oncology malpractice cases.

Cancers such as breast cancer, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, uterine cancer and skin cancer respond well to early treatment. Often, early detection can prevent these cancers from spreading to other parts of the body. Because of this, a prompt and accurate diagnosis can have a significant impact on a patient's chances of survival.
