Delayed diagnosis results in woman's permanent disability

The key to successfully overcoming many debilitating diseases is early detection. Most healthcare professionals recommend that patients be seen as soon as symptoms begin to develop. However, that early detection is also dependent on a doctor recognizing the symptoms for what they are and accurately diagnosing the problem. While there are some medical conditions that can be difficult to detect, it's hoped that the battery of diagnostic tests that a patient undergoes will at least point doctors in the right direction. If any of those tests seem to give an indication of the patient's problem, yet that's missed or overlooked by doctors, than a patient may have cause to be upset.

Symptoms are studied, and blood tests, scans and biopsies are ordered with the aim of assisting a doctor in identifying the illness in a time-sensitive manner. The faster the diagnosis, the quicker you or a loved one can be healed.
