Mismanagement of cancer compensation amount awaited…


Kevin McMahon from County Limerick underwent a biopsy following the discovery of a lesion on the side of his vocal chords in July 2010.

Mr. McMahon was scheduled for a second biopsy in October 2010 as the lesion was thought to be an indicator of cell carcinoma, which was subsequently cancelled and rescheduled for January 2011.

At his rescheduled appointment, Mr. McMahon was informed that he needed surgery to remove his larynx which meant that he has to speak through an artificial voice box.

Mr. McMahon discovered that it could have been possible to treat his lesion with targeted radiotherapy and claimed compensation for the mismanagement of his cancer. He also alleges that he was not informed of his treatment options and therefore was unable to give informed consent for the surgery.

At the High Court, for assessment of damages only as liability, was not an issue, Mr. Justice Cross will hear evidence to assess compensation.
