Misdiagnosis


Medical Misdiagnosis is a serious risk every time you go to the hospital. You are not guaranteed that everything will be handled accurately. Doctors, nurses, surgeons, and all other kinds of medical professionals have a standard quality of care. However, sometimes this standard is weakened and the patient suffers. When you go to the hospital you are mostly concerned about your symptoms and the last thing on you are thinking about is "is the doctor making a mistake?". Sometimes medical professionals misdiagnose patients, this can result in giving a patient medication or treatment that can be harmful, and even fatal.


Common diseases that are frequently misdiagnosed are:

  • Breast Cancer
  • Tuberculosis
  • Lung Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Prostate Cancer
  • Cervical Cancer
  • Ovarian Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Heart Attack
  • Strokes
  • Pulmonary Embolism
  • Bacterial Meningitis
  • Appendicitis


Misdiagnosis can happen in many ways. Whether it's a Doctor or the hospital staff, a misdiagnosis of a serious illness can have very harmful effects. Medical Misdiagnosis is a serious risk to the healthcare industry. If Doctors and hospitals cannot strengthen their procedures for treatment. Claims and suits against the medical practitioners who are at fault, will continue.
