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
