Should you get a second opinion?

After a breast cancer diagnosis, it’s normal to want to treat the cancer as soon as possible. But you also want to feel confident about your treatment plan. It’s common for people with breast cancer to seek a second opinion before going forward with treatment.

Should you get a Second Opinion?

Value of a second opinion? Remember the 3Cs.

 

Confidence

Even if a second opinion only confirms your diagnosis and the treatment plan recommended by your care team, you now have the peace of mind knowing you’re making the right decision for you.

 

Clarity

A second opinion can also give you more details about the breast cancer type and stage that could affect your treatment plan.

 

Common

You may find it hard to tell your doctor you’re seeking a second opinion, but it’s common to get one.
