Misdiagnosis And Failure To Diagnose

Misdiagnosis Can Be A Fatal Mistake

When a doctor fails to diagnose a serious condition or when there is a misdiagnosis, a patient may be seriously injured because of the mistake. In the worst cases, a misdiagnosis can cause a wrongful death.

  • Cancer misdiagnosis can mean delayed treatment while the cancer continues to grow. A cancer that might have been stopped in the early stages becomes a life-threatening condition. When a doctor fails to diagnose breast cancer, prostate cancer, leukemia, or any other type of cancer, delayed treatment can create a far more grim prognosis.
  • A heart attack or stroke may be misdiagnosed as a digestive problem or anxiety in the emergency room. The patient may be sent home and a life will be at even greater risk of death.
  • Meningitis and other serious infections may be misdiagnosed as being flu or other minor illnesses. Such serious infections must be diagnosed and treated immediately or they quickly become life threatening.
