Whether you have been recently diagnosed or have been dealing with cancer, you would want to know if you are getting the best care for your fight against cancer.
Seeking a second opinion should be considered. Many oncologists agree that more than one opinion is wise if for no other reason, to have a peace of mind. Your treating oncologist will understand why and knows that ultimately it is your life, and you need to be informed as much as possible to make the decisions that directly impact you and your loved ones.
You need to consider many things. You do not have time to waste, and you need to be mindful of your finances. You want to be sure your cancer care options include the latest available clinical trials and immunotherapies for your particular cancer, and you are spending more time focusing on your care, rather than traveling from one cancer center to another looking for the best treatment.
