Getting a second opinion is important when dealing with cancer.
Your cancer doctor will not be hurt if you ask about getting a second opinion. In fact, they will probably encourage it.
Having another physician examine your case provides a fresh set of highly trained eyes and may provide a fresh perspective or identify something missed or unknown to the first doctor.
The stakes may be high, so you should feel like you are completely educated about, and feel comfortable with your treatment plan.
At OSF HealthCare, our cancer experts specialize in a wide range of cancers and are available for second opinion consultations.
