What is Overdiagnosis?

Posted 7 months ago

Overdiagnosis is the diagnosis of disease that will cause neither morbidity nor mortality during a patient’s lifetime. Doctors are trained to listen, examine, test, diagnose and treat patients, but we are not warned of the possible dangers of “diseases”, the diagnosis of which will not benefit the patient and may also lead to harm. I would argue that the Hippocratic oath, in particular “Primum non nocere” (first, do no harm) should be at the forefront of every clinician’s mind when seeing patients.
