Millions of American, including some who are living in the state of South Carolina, have been subjected to consequences when their doctor made an error in diagnosis. Medical mistakes of this magnitude can have dire consequences that range from prolonged suffering to a worsened medical condition. Some patients have even died as a result of this kind of doctor negligence.
Certain conditions that are misdiagnosed are especially dangerous. These include infections, cancers and diseases. Failure to treat infection often results in catastrophic consequences and might even have the potential to impact entire populations. The failure to detect cancer in patients who are seeking treatment for a mystery ailment can result in the loss of valuable time to reverse the illness.
