The Importance of a Second Opinion about Radiation Therapy

Creating the right radiation therapy plan for each individual patient is a complex process. It’s not uncommon for doctors to view the same patient’s situation differently. That is why many people seek second opinions.

A second opinion can give you a different view about your diagnosis. It can provide an alternative treatment plan that might lead to better outcomes. Having another doctor’s opinion helps patients make more informed decisions about their treatment.

Getting a second opinion can also reveal new and better treatment options. As part of an academic medical center, the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Comprehensive Cancer Center (UMGCCC) often offers therapies and clinical trials not available anywhere else. One of our unique and advanced radiation therapy technologies might be right for you.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and might need radiation therapy, we invite you to get a second opinion. Request a call from one of our doctors or oncology nurse practitioners.
