Missed Tests Can Lead To Delayed Diagnoses Or Misdiagnosed Cancer
Often cancer is not diagnosed because the doctor does not order the tests that would detect it. Common tests include an MRI, a PSA test (for prostate), and a mammogram. Sometimes, the doctor will run the test, but the radiologist will misread the film. Even if the right test is ordered and read correctly, the doctor must still follow up with the correct treatment. At best, mistakes like these can lengthen the time it will take to fight the disease. At worst, to misdiagnose breast cancer or any cancer can be fatal.
