It can become confusing and overwhelming when speaking to a number of doctors. It helps to write down a list of questions you wish to ask your doctor. Consider the following questions;
Do you typically treat patients with my type of cancers?
What are the outcomes or complications you have faced with my type of cancer?
Is there anything unique about my cancer that makes my prognosis better or worse?
What are all my treatment options?
How long will I need to receive treatment and how often?
How will I know if my treatment is working?
What are the side effects of my treatment?
Are there any alternative treatment options?
How can I prepare for the side effects of my treatment or prevent them?
How will treatment affect my daily activities?
Will I need to stop working?
Are there any clinical trials that are right for me?
What other health services would benefit me (for example; dietitian, social worker, physiotherapist) and how can I be proactive with my treatment?
