Lack of details can lead to a misdiagnosis

Misdiagnosis occurs more often than patients in Texas or elsewhere may believe. However, there are cases when a diagnosis is correct but may not be completely accurate. In other situations, the diagnosis may be too vague to allow medical professionals to effectively treat a patient. Even if someone receives treatment, it may not result in that person getting any better. It is also possible that an incorrect or vague diagnosis could lead to treatment that makes a condition worse.

Multiple tests and procedures monitor spread of bladder cancer

Detecting bladder cancer requires specific tests that look for the presence of cancer cells or tumors. People normally experience some symptoms before seeking medical attention. Ideally, Texas physicians will detect the cancer early when treatments have a greater chance of success. The process involves diagnosing the cancer, removing tumors and monitoring for the spread of cancer.

Stress can be a factor for surgeons

No matter what a procedure may entail, it's important that surgeons do not become complacent in the operating room. Unfortunately for Texas patients, any mistake can be potentially lethal. A new study from Columbia University shows that stress can make a surgeon more likely to commit such an error.
