Misdiagnoses are more common than you think

It's estimated that 12 million people in the United States get misdiagnosed each year. Roughly half of those cases of misdiagnosis can cause potentially serious harm to the patients. But even when a misdiagnosis doesn't result in a life-or-death emergency, there can still be serious consequences to the patient's health. Recovery can be delayed or harsh treatment like chemo can be ordered that can leave the patient infertile and suffering from many side effects.
