Prostate Cancer Malpractice

Prostate Cancer or Carcinoma of the prostate (CaP) is the most common solid malignancy in men. There are over 325,000 cases diagnosed each year. This year over 40,000 Americans will die from this disease, some of them needlessly. New diagnostic tools are available for early detection of prostate cancer: TRUS or transrectal ultrasonography and PSA or prostate specific antigen. Your doctor owes you the advantage of timely examinations and the latest diagnostic tools. Physician failures to timely diagnose prostate cancer is medical malpractice and has resulted in unnecessary deaths.
