Issues like cancer, lupus, Lyme disease, and cardiovascular disease are misdiagnosed in millions of Americans every year.

Misdiagnosis can lead to delayed treatment, patients being treated for the wrong disease or even a total lack of treatment for these serious medical issues. Considering that early treatment is an important part of the prognosis of some diseases like cancer, many patients experience serious problems or may die because of this kind of serious medical error.

Often, misdiagnoses are the result of lapses in judgment or neglect such as a medical professional’s failure to take into account worrying symptoms or properly take a patient’s medical history into consideration. When this is the case, a misdiagnosis may be considered medical malpractice and compensation may be owed.
