We Know the Common Causes of Cancer Misdiagnosis
Unfortunately, there are many ways in which cancer can be missed or misdiagnosed. In our practice, most of these cases involve one or more of the following factors:
- Failure to perform screening tests such as a mammogram, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, colonoscopy or skin cancer screening for patients who are asymptomatic but who are at risk due to age, family history or other factors, including smoking, obesity or fair skin
- Laboratory errors such as switched tissue specimens that result in "false positive" diagnosis and unnecessary treatment, including radiation, chemotherapy and surgical procedures such as mastectomy
- Misread X-rays, mammograms, CT scans or other test results
