Carcinoma is a medical term referring to a malignant tumor. Carcinomas are a form of cancer. They can appear almost anywhere in the body. Because they are malignant, they can spread to other parts of the body. If recognized and treated early enough, there is a chance for cure or significant control. If not recognized and treated, they are likely to be fatal.
Even when patients go to their doctor with problems later found to be caused by a carcinoma, doctors do not always recognize the carcinoma. Sometimes patients are sent home with no treatment. Sometimes, patients misdiagnosed and treated for some medical condition other than carcinoma. As with many other serious medical conditions, prompt recognition and treatment is the key to survival. If you believe that you or a family member was injured or died due to a failure to promptly recognize and treat a carcinoma, you should have your case evaluated by an experienced attorney.
