When someone is sick or injured, they count on the doctor to be able to look at the symptoms and provide them with a correct diagnosis. Unfortunately, there are times that the medical professional makes the wrong diagnosis, or fails to diagnose what the medical problem is. When this misdiagnosis or incorrect diagnosis occurs, the patient can either be treated incorrectly or not treated at all for their condition.
For many types of cancers and diseases, early diagnoses are often what can make the difference in the patient’s prognosis. If the physician does not provide them with the correct diagnosis or completely fails to diagnose them at all, the patient will not receive the treatment they need to get better. Many medical conditions can be treated if they are diagnosed early and when this does not happen, it can cause further medical problems or even death.
