Medical Errors and Misdiagnosis Attorney Schaumburg, Chicago

The well-being and lives of patients are in the hands of medical professionals every day. That’s why it’s crucial that medical professionals take all the necessary steps to diagnose cancer and other serious illnesses in a timely manner.

The reasons for misdiagnosis and failure to diagnose are many, from failure (or delay) in reporting or acting on questionable diagnostic test results to incorrectly interpreting diagnostic test results. Sometimes the wrong diagnostic test is administered, and other times there are errors in prescribed medications and surgical errors.

Commonly Misdiagnosed Conditions

*It’s always suggested you get a second opinion from various other medical professionals, especially in regard to serious illnesses. The following are among the most misdiagnosed conditions:

  • Brain tumors
  • Colon cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Lung cancer

Effects of Misdiagnosis

When doctors misdiagnose or fail to diagnose, the patient is not the only one who suffers, as family and friends have to deal with the repercussions. Prolonged hospital stays, expensive (and potentially unnecessary) surgeries, and emotional pain and suffering are just some of the consequences.
