Doctors and other specialists do fail to conduct appropriate tests, order appropriate labs and read test results correctly. It is common for X-ray tests to be misread or misinterpreted. It is also common to receive a cancer misdiagnosis.
The misdiagnosis of a medical condition is always serious. Your doctor may attempt to downplay a wrong diagnosis, delayed diagnosis or a failure to diagnose your condition, but it is always serious.
The failure to diagnose cancer, a heart attack or meningitis in children can be life-threatening. A misdiagnosis of a broken bone or infection can cause the ailment to get much worse rapidly, causing much more serious injury that requires much greater expense and time to treat.
