A cancer diagnosis can come as a shock, making you feel overwhelmed, scared and helpless. Knowing what to expect can help alleviate some of these feelings. Very few cancers require emergency treatment, so take some time to learn about your diagnosis and treatment options, and ask questions. If you’re not already a patient, we invite you to see us for a second opinion.
