Dayton Misdiagnosis and Delayed Diagnosis Lawsuits

Failure to correctly diagnose a patient can have far-reaching consequences for their health and well-being. The wrong diagnosis can subject a patient to unneeded and painful medical treatments and medications that do nothing to improve their condition, and may even make it worse. Meanwhile, appropriate treatment is delayed, sometimes beyond the point of no return. Doctors commonly misdiagnosis conditions that present with a wide range of symptoms, such as heart attack or stroke. Some other frequently misdiagnosed conditions include:

  • Ovarian cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Diabetes
