Benefits of seeking a second opinion

Cancer has become a disease that most families have come face-to-face with at some point. The number of people diagnosed with various types of cancer each year are many. One positive thing for some people is that many types of cancer are possibly curable or at least manageable. That, however, does not negate the seriousness of a cancer diagnoses nor the impact on a person’s life. If you have recently been told you have cancer, you may want to consider getting a second opinion.

Why should you get a second opinion, especially if you like your doctor? This is a very good question and WebMD explains that there are many benefits to additional medical opinions. One of these may well be that you can be reaffirmed of the recommendations your doctor provided to you so that you have a greater level of trust and comfort proceeding with a treatment plan. You might also learn about different types of treatment options that may be more attractive to you. Perhaps you prefer the idea of a surgery to extended treatments or vice versa.

It is also possible that a second opinion might indicate your original diagnoses was inaccurate. This, of course, can be a huge benefit to having sought the second opinion.

If you would like to learn more about your concerns of being impacted by a medical error and where to get help if an error is suspected, please feel free to visit the second opinion page of our Illinois medical malpractice website.
