Persons who have been diagnosed with cervical cancer may be entitled to compensation through filing pap smear lawsuits. Women who have been diagnosed with active or advanced cervical cancer likely have a misread pap smear in their medical history. Now persons and family members of persons who have been diagnosed with cervical cancer following a misread pap test are filing cervical cancer lawsuits to obtain compensation for the pain, suffering, and medical expenses which could have been avoided.
Cervical cancer is slow to develop and an accurately-read pap smear gives providers ample time to treat the disease before it becomes life-threatening. However, when precancerous cells go unnoticed in a misread pap smear, years may pass before the first cervical cancer diagnosis. In essence, what once was a preventable disease is permitted to develop into a pervasive and potentially fatal condition, requiring invasive treatment and resulting in severe pain and suffering. Critics say pap smear mistakes can be blamed on recent changes to pap smear analysis, which rely on computer technology to choose sample areas of the pap slides for technicians to review. Intended to promote efficiency, the technology increases pressure on technicians to process results quickly and may miss vital results.
