I am reading a paper and I suspect that the author made a mistake. I want to send an email to inform him of it, but I am afraid that I missed something in his paper. So I want to say that I would apoplogize for the bothering/disturbances if I missed anything. Is the following sentence OK? Are there better, more polite ways of saying it? Thanks.
"I apologize for the disturbance/fussing/bothering if I missed something."

    If the author is USA, you can say very natural,
    'sorry to bother you'

    That is the most common natural.
