Second Opinion Regarding Early Prostate Cancer
I have been diagnosed with early prostate cancer. Should I get a second opinion?
There are many options available to patients and many find a second opinion helpful. If you feel you are getting sufficient information from the physician caring for you that may not be be necessary. It comes down to how comfortable you are with your current physician, and there is no pat answer. I hope these thoughts are helpful to you.
