Do I have time for a second opinion after my cancer was diagnosed?

If you want a second opinion, it is your right as a patient to get one. Cancer does not develop in a few days or weeks and getting a second opinion rarely takes so long that you should not do it. A second opinion can be very important, not just for your treatment, but also for your confidence as a cancer patient.

You can also get a second opinion during the course of your treatment. This is not only an option right after you have been diagnosed.
