Delay in excising basal cell carcinoma


Our client had known Atypical Mole Syndrome (AMS) phenotype and was recognised as being prone to skin cancer. She attended her specialist with a basal cell carcinoma on her nose that was wrongly diagnosed as actinic keratosis and was discharged.

As a result, there was a delay in diagnosing and excising the carcinoma, made more difficult by the growth of the carcinoma in the meantime and requiring skin graft and dermabrasion. The case settled for £17,500.
