Getting a second opinion is an important part of a cancer diagnosis for most patients. Gathering as much information as possible before making a decision on how to proceed with treatment is critical to both patients and their families.
Our dermatologic oncologists encourage second opinions and often meet with patients and families to evaluate a patient’s diagnosis and records.
What to bring
If you are coming to The Melanoma and Skin Oncology Center for a second opinion, you should bring:
- Any records you may have
- Any films you may have, including CTs, MRIs and lab reports
- Photographs of your skin
