Did A Dentist Fail To Diagnose Your Oral Cancer?

Dentists have a difficult task when diagnosing conditions. All dentists are human, and some mistakes are inevitable. But some misdiagnoses come from a deviation from the standard of care that all dentists owe patients.

In situations like these, you may have a case for dental malpractice. At MeehanLaw, LLC, our team represents patients throughout Connecticut who have oral cancer but did not receive an accurate or timely diagnosis. With our assistance, you can seek compensation for damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Watch For These Signs Of Oral Cancer

Oral cancer can manifest differently in every patient. However, these are some symptoms that appear frequently:

  • Mouth sores and lesions
  • White or red patches in the mouth
  • Pain in the mouth and jaw
  • Lumps on cheek interior
  • Thickening of cheeks
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Difficulty moving the tongue or jaw

In addition to causing serious problems with the mouth and jaw, oral cancer can eventually spread to other parts of the body. Dentists have an obligation to perform diagnostic tests if they notice these signs; failure to do so may be a life-or-death matter for patients.
