12 million people are misdiagnosed in America every year and the statistic is that you will likely be misdiagnosed once in your lifetime. As a result, it is very important to seek a second opinion when diagnosed with a serious condition. If you receive treatment for a condition you do not have, it can have very serious health implications. In addition, if you have not been diagnosed but actually have a serious condition, then you will miss out on catching and treating that condition early, which can be the difference between life and death. This infographic explores the statistics and informs how to go about getting a second opinion.
