Cancer Diagnostics and New Assessments
A second take on your diagnosis
Importance of a correct diagnosis
A correct and accurate cancer diagnosis and full history are always the basis for finding treatment options and a second opinion can play a crucial role here. Getting an outside assessment of your diagnosis can help you feel in control, offer security and provide you with further information to make those all important decisions on which treatment choice is most suitable for your diagnosis.
Why do I need a Reassessment?
Better control and knowledge of the situation – It is widely known that detecting and treating cancer at an early stage can save lives. The same goes for gathering all the facts once you have been diagnosed with cancer. If you proactively seek a new assessment, you and your loved ones can find out more about your cancer and all the treatment options available to you. In this way, you feel a greater control over the disease.
Avoid the possibility of a misdiagnosis – A renewed assessment gives you a greater opportunity to choose the treatment plan that is right for you. According to a study, one in eight cancer patients is misdiagnosed. An additional assessment can diagnose another type or a new stage of cancer, which changes the treatment plan. If the original diagnosis is confirmed, a reassessment may provide you with more treatment options to consider. A rare type of cancer can increase the chances of a misdiagnosis, as the pathologist may not have encountered it so many times. If you have been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer, a reassessment can help with a confirmation of the type and stage of the cancer.
Access to world class diagnostic means – Many hospitals have the diagnostic options that are most frequently used, but may lack others that are not used as often or that simply cost too much for a public health institution. Some hospitals have technology that is not available elsewhere. A reassessment from an outside doctor can give you more treatment options that can be more advanced or tailored to your individual needs. Most doctors understand that patients have the right to a 2nd opinion. In fact, there are many who encourage it.
Hope in case of complications – Finally, if you have been told that there is no hope and that your cancer is incurable, another doctor may still suggest any treatment options. Using our modern, technical platform, we can send your medical records and data to clinics in minutes.
