Failure To Diagnose Prostate Cancer

Failure to diagnose prostate cancer can happen for a number of reasons, including the following:

  • Failure to refer a patient for screening when symptoms suggest further examination is required;
  • Failure to properly screen a patient;
  • Wrongly diagnosing the prostate cancer and presribing medication which masks the symptoms;
  • Failure to refer for a biopsy when test results are not clear;
  • Failure to detect signs of prostate cancer on physical examination.

Common Symptoms Of Prostate Cancer

The symptoms which should alert a medical professional to the possibility of prostate cancer include blood in urine or semen, erectile dysfunction, lower back pain or urinary problems (being unable to urinate freely or experiencing pain).

If these symptoms are present your GP or other medical professional should carry out further examinations and tests to help in diagnosing or ruling out the possibility of prostate cancer.

Complications Caused By Delayed Diagnosis Of Prostate Cancer

  • Increased risk of incontinence;
  • Erectile problems;
  • Urinary problems; and
  • In the worst cases, death.
