Why is it so important that the doctor makes the final diagnosis?

But with a positive result, with ongoing symptoms or if you are uncertain, you should visit your doctor as soon as possible.
What do “false-negative” results mean?
False-negative results mean that a negative result is falsely shown, although the result in fact is positive.
What do “false-positive” results mean?
False-positive results mean that a positive result is falsely shown, although the result in fact is negative.
What do I do when the result is positive?
If the result is positive you should visit your doctor as soon as possible. (Please note: the rapid test “Male fertility” is the only test where positive means: the result is in a normal range)
What do I do if the result is negative, but I still have symptoms?
There are several possible reasons for ongoing symptoms. One may be that the symptoms have another cause than the one you suspect. Another may be that the test result is false-negative. In any case: You should visit your doctor as soon as possible.
