As the second-leading cause of death, cancer causes considerable suffering for millions of patients and their loved ones. We rely on skilled physicians and specialists to diagnose and treat this devastating condition, but what if negligence prompts misdiagnosis? The results could prove devastating. Cancer misdiagnosis is far more common than most people suspect; experts at Johns Hopkins estimate that 1 in every 71 cases are incorrectly diagnosed. Furthermore, a shocking 1 in 5 cancers are misclassified. Often misdiagnosis or misclassification occurs when pathologists improperly analyze lab results.
