Mouth and Throat Cancer
According to Cancer Research UK, there were 2,386 deaths from oral cancer in the UK in 2014. Cancer Research UK say that 91% of all oral cancer is preventable. Dentists play a vital role when it comes to diagnosing oral cancer. During your regular check-ups, they should look for the signs of mouth and throat cancer and refer you for further, specialist treatment if necessary.
Common symptoms of oral cancer include:
- Unexplained Lumps
- White and red patches on your tongue and on the lining of your mouth
Delays in diagnosis can lead to significant surgery and further health problems. Like all cancer, the quicker the diagnosis the more positive the outcome.
How can we help?
Here at Negligence Claimline our friendly team are here to help you get the support you need. Working with a panel of specialist medical negligence solicitors, we can assist you with your potential claim.
Sometimes an apology is enough, but in other cases compensation will be the only solution to help you get your life back on track.
Our service, putting you in contact with one of our expert panel members, is free and you are not obliged to take the advice the solicitor gives you, or to progress your claim any further if you do not wish.
Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. The treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
However, when someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
