A Delayed Diagnosis Can Mean Life Or Death
When diagnosed in a timely manner, the prognosis is generally optimistic for patients who have cancer and other medical conditions. When a patient is given a delayed diagnosis, the prognosis is generally not as positive. A doctor’s failure to diagnose cancer or other illness can have a devastating impact on entire families.
