Lung cancer is a disease that kills more people than breast, colon, prostate or even ovarian cancer. One would think that this type of cancer should be more stringent in its diagnosis, however, that is simply not the case. Lung cancer misdiagnoses are much more frequent than realized, which is unfortunate because it is a disease that does not have a high survival rate. So just how common is lung cancer misdiagnosis?

 

More than 12 million Americans are misdiagnosed with lung cancer every year. The misdiagnosis of lung cancer is commonly diagnosed as benign lung nodules, tuberculosis or pneumonia.
