Leukaemia is the abnormal production of white blood cells in the bone marrow causing a loss of balance in the blood cells developed disrupting the functionality of other blood cells like red blood cells, platelets etc. It is a type of cancer developed in the blood forming cells and can spread to other organs causing severe infections. The disease can be acute or serious based on its type and acute form of disease affects children and chronic leukaemia affects adults.
The symptoms of leukaemia are generally vague and so the chances of misdiagnosis is high. That might leave the disease undetected and spread rapidly from an acute to severe condition.
Missed diagnosis can occur in the initial consultation if the medical examination is not carried out effectively.
If signs of disease are not interpreted then the disease may be left undiagnosed and will grow severe
Misdiagnosis can happen in blood tests when the results are misread or misinterpreted during leukaemia diagnosis.
Surgical errors when removing the leukaemia affected part/organ will leave the disease to spread more and serious health conditions will ensue.
Chest x-rays, CT scans and ultra sounds are used to check if the disease has spread to other organs, Negligence during such tests can increase the severity of Leukaemia.
Bone marrow tests are important when conducting the leukaemia diagnosis, misdiagnosis by pathologists will cause the disease left undetected and causes the disease to spread more rapidly.
