Baltimore, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/26/2018 -- Gershon, Willoughby, Getz, & Smith LLC is available to represent clients with prostate cancer whose doctors chose to delay performing a biopsy. Prostate cancer is one of the deadliest types of cancer for males. Often diagnosed too late, many patients are left with few treatment options and little hope for survival. While not all of these deaths are preventable, many patients who show early signs of prostate cancer are delayed in receiving the proper testing to identify the disease, and as a result, their cancer worsens to an advanced stage where treatment is no longer viable.

Some of the earliest signs of prostate cancer can appear to be symptoms of less-severe medical conditions, but physicians should always err on the side of safety and address the issue as early as possible. For instance, some patients are told they have a nodule on their prostate and that the physician would like to monitor it over the following months.

In cases like these where a cancerous growth is mistaken for a benign nodule, patients who should have received a biopsy are instead stuck waiting for their condition to worsen before the doctors decide to perform the necessary tests to identify the cancer. This is medical malpractice, plain and simple.

The team of attorneys at Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz are experts in all forms of medical malpractice and have helped patients in these situations file suits against their healthcare providers for delaying the necessary tests to identify their disease.

Whether a patient needs a top medical malpractice attorney or a team of seasoned brain injury lawyers in Baltimore, Gershon, Willoughby, & Getz has the expertise to handle the case. They also specialize as child brain injury lawyers and cerebral palsy attorneys for many clients.
