Common cancer diagnosis mistakes

Finding out you have cancer is probably one of the top scariest things you could ever imagine happening to you. Every day people are getting a cancer diagnosis in New York. However, every day there are also people who are seeing a doctor and not getting the proper diagnosis. Leaving cancer undiagnosed is a serious issue that we at Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld LLP do not want to see happen.

It has been shown that delays in cancer diagnosis can decrease survival rates. Unfortunately, ABC News reports cancer diagnosis mistakes are not really uncommon. Errors can happen in many ways, from the doctor to the laboratory.

However, most mistakes occur in the lab. Pathologists never meet with you. The only information they have about you is in charts and the slides and specimens they have been given. They base all their findings on what they see under the microscope.

Part of the issue is some of the pathologists may not have the right training or experience to make a proper diagnosis. The pathologist running tests for you may not be an expert on the type of cancer you are suspected to have. He or she could easily misread the cells, either saying you do have cancer when you do not or vice versa. The pathologist may also not be able to determine how to properly classify the diagnosis, which could lead to you not getting the proper treatment plan based on the stage of cancer you have.
