I have been talking to several of my current patients and they have all indicated to me that one of the most difficult things is to figure out how to get the answers they seek. In order for us to get the answers that we are searching for, we need to ask the right questions. So I decided to put together a list of questions that would be appropriate for one to ask their physician as you are going through your consultation, or visits, with your physician to discuss your cancer and what type of treatment is best recommended for you. I grouped these questions by topic.
• Do you typically treat patients with my diagnosis?
• What stage is my cancer? (include numbers and letters; histology)
• Is there anything unique about my cancer that makes my prognosis better or worse?
• Should I get a second opinion?
