Even if your condition was diagnosed correctly, you may have been harmed by the negligence of your doctor or medical professional for failing to timely treat your disease or condition. Sometimes even a short delay can dramatically affect the outcome of the treatment. A number of factors can lead to a failed diagnosis and thus a failed treatment. A patient with a headache might have the beginnings of a brain tumor, which the doctor can overlook. For years, doctors mistook symptoms of deadly mesothelioma for bronchitis and congestion. At other times, a patient might neglect to get a second opinion from a doctor with a specialty in his or her symptoms.
