Types of Failure to Diagnose

Failure to diagnose is a common medical error. This includes breast cancer, skin cancer, colon cancer, cervical cancer, stomach cancer, lung cancer, and more. Cancer is treatable, but only when doctors begin treatment at an early stage in the development of the disease. Failing to timely diagnose cancer can easily lead to severe illness, costly treatment, and fatality.

Other forms of failure to diagnose include:

  • Stroke & heart attack

  • Blood clots
  • Infant asphyxia (a birth injury)
