Do Not Settle for a Lung Cancer Misdiagnosis

Lung cancer is more prevalent than breast cancer, ovarian cancer, prostate cancer and colon cancer combined.  And it is deadly if it is not treated early.

Unfortunately, the early stages of lung cancer are often asymptomatic and when symptoms do start they often mimic other, less serious, conditions.  For example, a person with lung cancer can be misdiagnosed as having bronchitis because of a cough and a feeling of fatigue.

If your lung cancer is misdiagnosed or there is a delay in diagnosing your lung cancer then your chances of survival may diminish and you may suffer from more invasive and intense treatments then you otherwise would have required.  For that reason, it is important to insist upon medical tests if you think you might have lung cancer and to protect your rights if your cancer has been misdiagnosed.
