According to the American Cancer Society, in the United States,
Breast Cancer is Often Misdiagnosed
As with other cancers, when it comes to breast cancer, the earlier the cancer is detected, the better the outcome; in fact, breast cancer survival rates are directly linked to the stage at which it is found. But if your breast cancer was missed or misdiagnosed and your treatment was delayed, your chances of survival plummet. The longer it goes without detection and proper treatment, the worse the potential outcome.
Breast self-exams are a tool in catching breast cancer early, as are screening mammograms. But in spite of doing everything you can to protect your health, mistakes can still be made by your healthcare provider. And if your healthcare provider misinterprets a scan or a biopsy or takes an ill-advised ‘wait-and-see’ approach to your symptoms and physical examination, the results can be the difference between life and death.
