When a Delay in Diagnosis Places Your Health at Risk
A delay in diagnosis can be life threatening to patients. When doctors fail to diagnosis a health condition in a timely manner, it can cause a patient’s options for treating their condition to become limited. With serious illnesses like cancer, patients have a limited window of opportunity to get treatments that could extend their life. If doctors fail to treat a patient’s symptoms seriously from the beginning then valuable time is lost.
