Cancer Second Opinion Program

Getting a cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and understanding your treatment choices is key. Seeking the opinion of experts specializing in your health problem will help you decide on a care plan. Northside Hospital Cancer Institute’s Second Opinion Program helps cancer patients and referring providers in getting timely second opinion consultations with our expert physicians. 

You may want a second opinion if:

  • You would like confirmation of your diagnosis and understanding of all treatment choices.
  • You have been diagnosed with a rare or complex type of cancer.
  • Your cancer is not responding to current treatment.
  • You are considering treatment with major risks.
