Awareness and knowledge are very important in the fight against cancer. There is a lot of information regarding a new diagnosis, recurrence, understanding treatment options, and information about current research or clinical trials. It is sometimes difficult to make sense of all the information provided. One thing that maybe very helpful is getting a second opinion from a national expert. There is a new on-line program that provides this service. It allows you to submit your medical records to an expert for review and get a personalized second opinion about your cancer and treatment plan sent back to you and your treating physician. You can find out more information about this at www.canceropinions.com . Cancer is such a complicated condition, and new research is being published all the time. A second opinion can provide you with very critical information about your cancer and treatment options.

Second opinions are a MUST. I was preparing to go on chemo and since I have a Neuropthy in my feet it was important I go the correct Medicine. I took a trip to Michigan State and go the correct diagnosis and med to use in Chemo.
