Health conditions doctors commonly misdiagnose

When you feel unwell, chances are, you schedule a visit with your New York physician so that he or she can assess what is affecting you and recommend a course of treatment. Regrettably, though, doctors are not immune to making errors, and some errors doctors make can have significant effects on your overall prognosis. At Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, we recognize that, when doctors fail to diagnose, or misdiagnose, certain conditions, it can, in some cases, mean the difference between life and death. Therefore, we have helped many people who suffered due to a missed or delayed medical diagnosis pursue appropriate recourse.

According to Fox News, about 5% of all American patients who visit their doctors each year receive diagnoses that are incorrect, delayed or missed entirely. When a doctor fails to accurately diagnose your condition, it can potentially lead to a range of associated problems, from worsening symptoms to unnecessary and invasive medical treatments.

One way you can reduce your chance of suffering because of a missed, incorrect or delayed medical diagnosis is to secure a second opinion anytime you have concerns about something your doctor diagnoses or recommends. Additionally, certain medical conditions are more commonly misdiagnosed than others, so receiving particular diagnoses may, too, give you cause to seek a second opinion.

For example, if your doctor tells you you have breast, colorectal or lung cancer, or if he or she does not, but you have your suspicions that you might, it may serve you well to pursue a second opinion. Delayed diagnoses are common with all three of these forms of cancer. Your physician may, too, have trouble diagnosing a stroke or heart attack within a timely manner, with stroke diagnoses coming in late in about 9% of all cases.
