In the developed world as many as 1 in 3 people will develop a form of cancer at some point in their lives and this disease remains one of the greatest causes of mortality.  However, some dramatic improvements have been made over the past decade in the treatment of many forms of cancer which have resulted in a significant improvement for patient outcomes.  A key factor is early diagnosis which, when made, can result in proper and adequate treatment, a better prognosis and an extension of life expectancy.

Failure to diagnose cancer can involve simple oversights, such as failure to analyse abnormal blood tests, failure to perform ultrasounds or scans or failure to refer for biopsy.  Alternatively, the negligence can involve poorly performed surgery, medication errors and improperly prescribed chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment resulting in adverse effects.
