What is a delayed diagnosis of cancer claim?

Cancer is a disease that no one want to hear they have; however, recent statistics from the NHS report that 1 in 2 people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime.

Cancer can start in almost any organ or tissue in the body but whatever the type of cancer, prompt diagnosis and treatment of any cancer is crucial. If there is a delay in diagnosis and/or treatment, this can lead to the cancer progressing and spreading to other parts of the body. If there is a delay in diagnosis, this may mean that the outcome is worse than would have been the case and in some circumstances, it can mean that the cancer is unable to be cured.
