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.

A gynecologic oncologist is usually in the best position to offer a patient an expert opinion on the diagnosis and management of cervical cancer.

At Hostpital, patients also have their case presented at the gynecologic oncology multidisciplinary tumor board.

This is a meeting where gynecologic oncologists, radiation therapy physicians and gynecologic pathologists meet to discuss the diagnostic and treatment options for a patient with or suspected to have a gynecologic malignancy.
