Are there common misdiagnosed cases typically found in cancer treatment?

  • In some unfortunate situations, the physician is not really attuned to the patient’s complaints and doesn’t do a proper examination.
  • When a failure to diagnose goes on for a long period of time, it can result in terrible consequences to the patient.
  • The cancer could grow and the treatment could be much greater or of greater significance to the patient. It could lead to someone’s death.
