Receiving the Wrong Diagnosis, What Can I Do?
Receiving a diagnosis of a serious medical condition like cancer can be a stressful, terrifying experience. What do you do, however, if you find out that you received the wrong diagnosis, possibly denying you the life-saving treatment you need?
Much like a failure to diagnose a disease, injury or other medical condition, a misdiagnosis can lead to severe negative effects on your health, even if you were not sick to begin with. A misdiagnosis can lead to:
- Conditions such as cancers, heart attacks or infections going untreated
- Receiving the wrong type of surgery
- Being subjected to treatment like chemotherapy that you may not need, causing new health problems
- Tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills for unnecessary procedures that did not treat your real medical needs
