Before starting treatment, you may want a second pathologist to review the diagnosis and another specialist to review the treatment plan.
Some insurance companies require a second opinion; others may cover second opinion if the patient requests it.
It may take a week or two to arrange for a second opinion.
This short delay will not reduce the chance that treatment will be successful.
