Misdiagnosis or Delay in Diagnosis For Cervical Cancer
Cervical cancer, when diagnosed early, or in precancerous stages, can be a very treatable condition. The most effective way to prevent cervical cancer is to have regular Pap smears. A Pap smear test involves taking cells from the outer part of the cervix and examining these cells for cancer, precancerous cells or other irregularities.
For a Pap smear to be effective, physicians must closely analyze these cells in a timely fashion to determine if a woman has cancer, precancerous cells or other abnormal findings. When these professionals fail in this task, cervical cancer can go untreated and spread to other parts of the body. As cancer spreads, the person's chances for survival are greatly reduced. Further, more invasive procedures, such as a hysterectomy, may be necessary to treat the cancer.
