The right treatment for you

May 2018
It is essential that you receive the right treatment for you.

A good relationship with your doctor is fundamental, as this will affect not only your treatment but also side effects and prognosis.

If you, your family and/or your carers do not have complete faith in your specialist, then you are well within your right to obtain a second opinion.

It may mean that you will have to travel a little further away but you may be offered a different treatment plan or approach.

Try to ensure that your case is discussed in a multi-disciplinary oncology meeting, which is when consultants from all area of expertise (for example, oncologist, surgeon, radiologist and pathologist) come together to agree on your individual treatment plan.

If you have concerns, the ideal person to speak to first would be your GP.
