Consequences of a failed diagnosis or misdiagnosis

When a doctor fails to diagnose a disease, you may serious issues. The first issue is being treated for a disease you don’t suffer from. There are countless of horror stories that involve patients who have undergone serious and invasive treatments in order to cure a disease that they never suffered from in the first place.  When that happens, patients often suffer further pain. Accordingly, this neglect can easily subject a person to overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. The next issue is the failure to diagnose the problem. If you have been getting treated for one disease but have another, you face the consequences that occur when a disease goes untreated. A common example is cancer. When a person is treated for something minor or not treated at all, only to allow cancer to continue to grow, his or her life is in grave danger. The longer cancer goes undiagnosed, the harder it may be to survive it. When a doctor fails to diagnose a disease properly, one’s life is affected in terrible ways.
