Why is it important to have a second opinion?
You just received a medical diagnosis. You might be confused, even fearful. And you want to make sure the diagnosis is right and your treatment plan is the best one for you.
Getting a second opinion from another heath care provider can help you make informed decisions, put you at ease – and in some cases, save your life.
When Should You Get a Second Opinion?
While you do not need a reason to get a second opinion, there are times when getting a second opinion may be the best course of action. What's more, if the two doctors you see vastly disagree, then it might be wise to get a third opinion. Keep in mind, too, that the second opinion is not necessarily the right opinion. The key is to keep digging until the diagnosis and treatment make sense to you.
You should consider these factors before having an opinion from another doctor:
- Get a second opinion if you have undergone treatment but your symptoms continue
No one knows your body better than you do. And if your symptoms persist even after treatment, it may be time to seek the advice of different doctors and specialists. So if you are not feeling better and your symptoms are not going away, do not settle for that. Reach out to other doctors for their opinions.
- Get a second opinion if you are diagnosed with a rare disease
It is never wise to agree to surgery or another invasive procedure without exploring your options. Yet, some people feel that if a doctor suggests a procedure, they have to agree to it. But remember it is your body and your life. You absolutely have a say in what treatments you agree to. As a result, it may be wise to get a second opinion if your doctor is recommending something as serious as surgery. Being proactive and gathering more information will give you a greater degree of control over your treatment in the end.
- Get a second opinion if the recommended treatment is risky, involves surgery, is invasive or has lifelong consequences.

- Get a second opinion if you are diagnosed with cancer
With something as serious as cancer, having the input from another expert simply makes sense. Not only can a cancer diagnosis be confusing and overwhelming, but it also is a life-changing event. Therefore, it is important to be as informed as possible about your prognosis and the possible treatment options available to you. Getting additional opinions just improves the likelihood that you will walk away with the best treatment plan possible.
- Get a second opinion if your gut reaction tells you something is off
By all means, if you are not comfortable with the diagnosis or the recommended treatment, get a second opinion. You should never agree to a procedure or treatment plan when you don't feel good about it. Trust your gut and gather more information. Ask questions about your prescriptions. Talk to friends. Meet with a new doctor. And read about your condition. Very few health care decisions have to be made on the spot. So if something doesn't feel right, then, by all means, research your situation and talk with another doctor.
Your doctor should not be offended if you want a second opinion. In fact, many physicians routinely provide this kind of advice, especially in the world of surgery and cancer treatment. Ask your doctor for a list of potential names or medical centers for the second opinion. Also, make sure you have all the available information prior to your consultation. It is best to visit a different medical center to get a truly independent diagnosis. If you get conflicting information, you may need a third opinion.
