Second Opinions and MBC
You can choose to have a second opinion about your care at any time. Because treatment for metastatic breast cancer is ongoing, a second opinion may give you a fresh perspective from another doctor, or offer new treatment options. You may wish to get second opinions at various times during the course of your treatment.
You might especially want a second opinion if:
- the cancer grows or spreads
- you want to see a doctor or specialist with more knowledge of new approaches to metastatic breast cancer
- treatment stops working and a new treatment is suggested
- no treatment is suggested
- you are not getting relief for side effects
- you want to find better access to clinical trials for metastatic breast cancer
- you feel unsatisfied with your care, treatment or answers you are getting from your doctors
When you go for a second opinion, take a list of questions to help you get the information you need.
