PAP SMEAR MISDIAGNOSIS LAWSUITS

Cervical cancer can be easily detected by a Pap smear test during a routine gynecological examination. Pap tests screen for abnormal growths by examining cells taken from a patient’s cervix. Errors in Pap test administration and interpretation by clinicians, lab technicians, and physicians have led to misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cervical cancer. When a patient receives an inaccurate Pap test result, precious time may be lost as the disease can spread and treatment is postponed.

What is Pap Smear Misdiagnosis?

Cervical cancer, which is often linked to human papillomavirus (HPV), can typically be diagnosed through a Pap smear. Pap Smear misdiagnosis occurs when a patient is given a negative pap smear result when there are positive indicators for cervical cancer. Cervical cancer is a highly preventable form of cancer when the patient receives a proper diagnosis and timely treatment. A negligent misdiagnosis may lead to the undetected cancer spreading to the uterus and ovaries, and may increase the patient’s risk of death.

What is Happening with Pap Smear Misdiagnosis?

Inaccurate Pap smear results can occur in a number of situations. Negligent errors can be committed by a technician who collects the cells, a pathologist or technician who interprets the data, or a physician who counsels patients about follow-up care. As the Pap test is the primary screening tool for cervical cancer, diagnosis errors most commonly stem from results of the test itself. In addition to properly administering and interpreting the test, physicians have an obligation to thoroughly investigate reports of unusual symptoms such as pelvic pain, unusual discharge, or blood in the urine or stool, and follow protocols for cervical cancer monitoring and diagnosis.

Pap Smear Misdiagnosis Side Effects and Complications

The symptoms of cervical cancer include:

  • Abnormal vaginal bleeding;
  • Changes in the menstrual cycle; and
  • Bleeding and/or pain from contact with the cervix.

The most serious complications of Pap smear misdiagnosis are:

  • Spread of cancer to the uterus and ovaries;
  • Delayed diagnosis of cervical cancer;
  • Surgery/treatment of the cancer; and
  • Death.
