What Is Brain Cancer?

All cancers are named 1 of 2 ways: where they originate or the type of cells that formed the cancer, tumor or growth. Cancer of the brain is named for where it began forming i.e. the colon. It can be purely genetic and form in young people that other cancers may not. 

brain tumor is a cluster of cells in your brain that are not part of your normal healthy brain makeup. These tumors are broken up into two groups:

  • Primary brain tumors start in the brain and tend to stay there.
  • Secondary brain tumors are the more common of the 2 types of brain tumors. They start somewhere else in your body and travel to the brain. Lung, breast, kidney, colon, and skin cancers are among the most common cancers that spread to your brain.

Brain tumors are also graded 1 to 4 with 4 being cancerous cells that have the ability to spread quickly. These are obviously the most serious of the 4 grades/stages hence having your brain tumor diagnosed properly early on.

How Do Brain Injury Claims Conclude?

All accident, injury and cancer misdiagnosis claims end 1 of 2 ways in Pennsylvania. Either your attorney settles the case on your behalf with the liable parties insurance company or the case goes to trial. For instance if your cancer of the brain was due to genetic factors, but was originally misdiagnosed, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the doctor, hospital or medical facility responsible for the diagnostic error. If a settlement cannot be negotiated the case will go to court. Most hospitals and healthcare providers do not want that so they settle our of court 97% of the time.

If your cerebral cancer was due to a carcinogen found in your workplace, home, office or due to a dangerous medication like Zantac or Belviq you may have a cancer lawsuit against the manufacturer. These are mass tort lawsuits and handled differently than a cancer misdiagnosis claim. Our Erie, Pennsylvania brain injury lawyers handle both of these cases types.
