If you or a loved one is experiencing symptoms of prostate cancer, your physician may recommend screening or additional tests to confirm a diagnosis. Though a urologist most often performs the tests, it is recommended that a second opinion be sought before deciding on a treatment plan.
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. Patients often turn to a radiation oncologist given their expert knowledge in the field of cancer treatment.
At Austin CyberKnife, patients seeking a second opinion can meet with our radiation oncologists to evaluate their case. Our experienced staff considers factors such as your medical and family history, current health, diagnosis and personal needs, before giving you options for 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 (512) 324-8060.
