The most common medical misdiagnoses

We put a lot of trust in the doctors and nurses who treat us. As such we do not expect them to wrongly diagnose a particular condition. When this happens it can completely ruin lives and lead to a lack of confidence in medical professionals who may come into contact with us in the future.

What are the most common medical misdiagnoses?

Many conditions can be wrongly diagnosed. When this occurs you may be instructed to take drugs for a condition you do not have. This in itself can cause health problems in the future. Other situations can arise if you are taken into hospital having been diagnosed with a condition you do not have. If you are immobile following unnecessary procedures or treatment this can cause pressure ulcers and other problems resulting from immobility over a long period of time. You may even have to go through uncomfortable and painful treatment that wasn’t needed in the first place.

Many people have heard of patients being wrongly diagnosed with major conditions that require surgery and are later found to have been unnecessary. Other complications can then arise from these situations, such as infections. These may occur at the site of the surgery or through the urinary tract if a catheter has been used. As you can see there are many things that can stem from the incorrect diagnosis if it is made.
