Medical malpractice in Arizona: FAQs

Physicians spend years getting training to help treat medical conditions and injuries. In most cases, a visit to the doctor is a step towards bettering one’s health. However, in some cases, a mistake at the doctor’s office, in the hospital, clinic or other medical setting can result in more damage. Those who find themselves navigating an injury may have questions about medical malpractice claims.

Study: Colorectal cancer misdiagnosis rates in young patients

Medical professionals generally associate colorectal cancer as a disease most likely in older members of the population. This serious disease often presents with symptoms like diarrhea or constipation, bloody stools, gas, cramps, fatigue and unexplained weight loss. Patients presenting with these symptoms may require additional testing to determine if cancer is present. This can include a colonoscopy.

Young women and heart attacks: 3 things to know about SCAD

A relatively young and healthy woman is unlikely to be concerned about suffering from a heart attack. She may not think to see a doctor if she experiences unexpected chest pain.

Colorectal cancer rates are rising in people under the age of 50—and yet many doctors still believe that this type of cancer doesn’t occur in young people.

Women remain at heightened risk of misdiagnosed heart attack

Instead, the physician was more likely to point to a different concern such as acid reflux.
