Medical oncology is the field of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer using chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biological therapy, and targeted therapy. When faced with an oncological diagnosis, things might become overwhelming. Slowing down, trying to understand the diagnosis and the available treatment plans is crucial in these situations. Advances in the field of Medical Oncology are continuing at a rapid speed. Therefore, seeking a second opinion will raise the chances of defeating the diagnosis and getting an up-to-date treatment option.
Radiology is a medical discipline that uses imaging technology to make a diagnosis of human diseases. For cancer, an advanced imaging study is part of the staging and the follow-up of the disease. Getting a second opinion for an accurate and highly professional interpretation of your study is needed for the treatment map of the disease. It may come as a confirmation of the results or the diagnosis, a different opinion about it, or maybe as the answers that you need.
Nuclear medicine is a branch of Radiology that uses radioactive material for the diagnosis and treatment of several conditions. A more accurate interpretation by a second specialist can aid in the investigation of the health problem and the definition of the therapeutic approach.
Radiotherapy stands for the treatment of diseases using ionizing radiation. High-energy rays are used to damage cancer cells and stop them from growing. A second opinion by our radiotherapists can reveal additional treatment options that might be suitable for you. It can also help you make an informed decision as you gather more answers about each step of the cancer care that your doctor has suggested to you.
