Discrepancy in Diagnosis
 ... between women and men with minor stroke.  When reporting the same symptoms, men get more accurate diagnoses and therefore better treatment than women.

It's not really a flaw in diagnostic methods.  It's that society values  men and doesn't give a flying fuck about women.  Doctors assume that women are lying, mistaken, unreliable, or whining.  They take men seriously.  And that kills women.

Then they wonder why people don't trust them.
