Getting a Second Opinion on Prostate Cancer from a Radiation Oncologist

If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of prostate cancer, your physician may recommend screening or additional tests to confirm a diagnosis. Most often a urologist performs the tests though it is highly recommended that a second opinion should be sought before deciding on a treatment plan.
Getting a second opinion can help you to feel educated and comfortable with your treatment plan, validate your original diagnosis or introduce another treatment approach you hadn’t been presented with previously. Seeking information from a radiation oncologist can be particularly valuable given their expert knowledge in the field of cancer treatment.
At St. Louis CyberKnife, our radiation oncologists consider factors such as your medical and family history, current health, diagnosis and personal needs, before suggesting an overall treatment plan. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and would like to seek a second opinion, call our center at (636) 496-4660.
