Second opinions for cancer diagnosis

If you’ve been told you have cancer, it’s completely understandable if you want to get a second opinion about your diagnosis and treatment options.

Getting a second opinion on a cancer diagnosis can provide reassurance about the difficult decisions you’ll need to make. It may not mean that you think your diagnosis is wrong or that you don’t agree with a doctor’s recommendation. Instead, it’s a way to confirm what you’ve heard and make sure you have the most information about your options. That way you can be confident when choosing your oncologist and treatment plan, no matter where you decide to receive care.

Your personalized care plan will be based on the type and stage of the cancer and personal factors such as your preferences. Your care plan may include one or more of the following:

  • Radiation therapy: This treatment uses beams of intense energy to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells.
  • Chemotherapy: Chemo uses drugs to kill cancerous cells throughout your body and to shrink tumors.
  • Targeted therapy: This treatment uses medicines that directly target cancer cells, so there’s less damage to healthy cells.
  • Immunotherapy (biotherapy): With this type of therapy, medicines are used to boost your body’s natural immune response to cancer.
  • Hormone therapy: If you have breast or prostate cancer, your doctor may block certain hormones to slow cancer growth or make it less likely that it comes back.
  • Surgery: Depending on the type of cancer and how advanced it is, a surgeon may remove a part or all of the tumor.

Cancer research in Wisconsin

The treatments for cancer continue to get better and better. But these new and improved therapies only happen because people participate in cancer research studies.
