Types of Medical Misdiagnosis

  • Missed Diagnosis
  • Incorrect Diagnosis
  • Delayed Diagnosis
  • Failure to Diagnose
  • Missed Medical Complications

Medical misdiagnosis can be the result of an error in reading test results, such as a mammogram, CT scan, or x-ray. It can also be the result of failure to perform the proper testing, or a doctor failing to properly diagnose cancer, a stroke, or another serious condition, delaying treatment and furthering injury. Misdiagnosis of cancer, heart attack, or another serious illness can lead to devastating results, including death. Many of these medical errors in diagnosis are avoidable with the proper procedures in place.
