Study Shows Cancer Is Commonly Misdiagnosed

How often is cancer misdiagnosed? According to a survey of 400 leading cancer specialists by the National Coalition on Health Care (NCHC) and Best Doctors, Inc. it is much more common than we think. The majority of doctors surveyed believed cancer misdiagnosis rates to be between zero and 10 percent — a number far lower than the actual 28 percent estimated by the BMJ Quality and Safety journal.
