Oncology Second Opinion

Oncology Second Opinion

Errors in cancer diagnosises are likely the most harmful and expensive types of diagnostic mistakes. Some studies reported that missed cancer diagnoses represents 46% of primary care diagnostic errors, most commonly from lung, colorectal, prostate, or breast cancer1. Misdiagnosis can lead to high severity harm, and some reports indicate that cancer represents 38% of high-severity harm among diagnostic error malpractice claim cases2.

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is often filled with shock, disbelief, anxiety, and emotional turmoil. Coping with the diagnosis often means dealing with uncertainty, fear of the unknown, including the side effects of treatment and the progression of the disease. Understanding complex medical information, treatment options, and making informed decisions can be daunting during this difficult and frightening period. A second opinion may give you peace of mind that you have considered all options.
