The consequences of a misdiagnosis can be devastating: Your actual health condition can progress untreated while your doctor begins invasive or risky treatments for the wrong illness altogether. A missed diagnosis or misdiagnosis can mean unnecessary procedures, progressing conditions, and long-term consequences to your health and wellbeing.

Unfortunately, misdiagnosis is not a rare event, and some diseases and conditions are more commonly misdiagnosed than others. The most commonly misdiagnosed health conditions include:

  • Cancer
  • Infection
  • Heart attack
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Lyme disease
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease


  • Thyroid disorders

A misdiagnosis can take place in your doctor’s office, in a hospital, in the emergency room, or in a laboratory. A misdiagnosis may occur because a doctor fails to order the correct tests, because test results are not read correctly, or because a medical professional fails to recognize the symptoms of your condition. It is extremely important that you understand how your misdiagnosis took place, who was responsible, and whether they provided a reasonable, standard level of care.
