About Lung Cancer Misdiagnosis

Lung cancer is among the most common forms of cancer and is certainly among the most serious. If diagnosis of the disease is missed or delayed, this can have very serious consequences and it is therefore imperative that you are able to access compensation to help make up for the pain and suffering needlessly caused.

Often, lung cancer in its earliest stages will have no symptoms. As a result, it is not unheard of for diagnosis to be missed at the point when it is easiest to treat.

Also, there is also a danger that lung cancer may be mistaken for another condition, therefore resulting in a correct diagnosis being delayed. Conditions for which the disease may be mistook can include:

  • Pneumonia
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Bronchitis
  • Asthma

If you do suffer from one of the conditions mentioned above, there is also a risk that a diagnosis for lung cancer as it may be overlooked. 


Smoking is the primary cause of lung cancer and is responsible for the majority of lung cancer claims. However, there are other causes of the disease and these include:

  • Passive smoking
  • Radon (a naturally occurring radioactive gas found in some uranium present in rocks and soils)


If you suffer from symptoms such as a persistent cough or breathlessness, your GP will likely perform a number of tests on you, such as asking you to breathe into a spirometer device to measure how much air you breathe in and a blood test. A chest X-ray will typically be taken in the diagnosis of lung cancer, and other tests performed can include a computerised tomography (CT) scan, positron emission tomography-computerised tomography (PET-CT) scan, bronchoscopy and biopsy.

If mistakes are made during any of these tests, there is potential for lung cancer diagnosis to be either missed or delayed. In such instances, JMW can help you claim the lung cancer compensation to which you are entitled.
