Making decisions about healthcare and medical treatment is one of the most important decisions in a person’s life and can sometimes mean the difference between life and death.
Unfortunately many people are told that they have cancer or another life threatening illness and they are advised that they must make a decision and begin treatment as soon as possible.
While this may be true in some instances, taking the time to have a second opinion and weighing up your options is a very sensible approach to take.
Decisions regarding your health should only be made after you have been thoroughly informed about your diagnosis, prognosis and available treatment options.

There are many factors which effect a doctor’s opinion, in particular their mentality, where they were trained, the medical technology and equipment they are using and furthermore their overall experience in their particular medical field.
