Cancer Care Second Opinion
Uncertainty about surgery or a major medical procedure can drive the decision to seek a second opinion. It is important to have confidence in the diagnosis, and to get the most-current information about treatment options available to you.
A second opinion with a qualified specialist allows you to approach your treatment decisions with the necessary confidence to help you make the best choice for you.
When should you get a second opinion?
For complicated, non-emergency medical situations, you should consider getting a second opinion any time you face:
- A potentially life-threatening disease
- An unclear or confusing diagnosis for your condition
- Any experimental or novel course of treatment
- Multiple and/or chronic medical conditions
- Widely variable costs in tests or treatments
