Illnesses that are misdiagnosed or not diagnosed

Some common ailments that are misdiagnosed or not diagnosed include the following:

  • Cancer: Getting diagnosed with cancer is a traumatic experience. However, if detected soon enough it can be treated. Failing to diagnosis this disease can be life-changing or even life ending. Misdiagnosing cancer can cause unnecessary pain and stress.
  • Meningitis: This is a disease which requires immediate diagnosis. It can be misdiagnosed as many other diseases. It is an inflammation of the lining that protects the brain and spinal cord and is usually caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Approximately 70% of meningitis cases occur during the first five years of life.
  • Cardiovascular or heart conditions: Symptoms for these conditions include chest pain, arm pain, a quickened pulse, and shortness of breath. Misdiagnosis or failure to diagnose cardiovascular or heart conditions can be fatal.
