TV Star Fran Drescher Discusses Her Cancer Misdiagnosis
When a patient seeks medical care, he or she inherently trusts the doctor to correctly diagnose and treat his or her medical condition. Unfortunately, cancer misdiagnoses, which can lead to delayed treatment and continued cancer growth, have become incredibly common in the medical field. Television star Fran Drescher became a victim of cancer misdiagnosis when it took doctors two years to finally diagnose her with uterine cancer.
In pursing a correct diagnosis for uterine cancer, Fran Drescher had to seek treatment from eight different doctors. In this video clip, she discusses with Anderson Cooper how all but one of the doctors was wrong about her medical condition. Luckily, when the eighth doctor correctly diagnosed her with cancer, she was still in Stage I.
