Failure to Diagnose
Failure to diagnose is one of the most common types of medical mistakes. Some of the most frequently misdiagnosed diseases and illnesses include:
- Heart attack
- Cancer (breast, lung, and colon top the list)
These conditions, when not properly diagnosed, are often fatal. When not fatal, misdiagnosis can result in expensive and invasive medical treatments, long periods of time out of work, and a number of other financial and personal damages.
