Questions to Ask Your Physician

  1. What kind of cancer do I have and how advanced is it?
  2. Is this a precise diagnosis or would I benefit from further testing before we discuss treatment options?
  3. What treatments are recommended for my particular cancer?
  4. If it is at an early stage of development, is “watchful waiting” an option for me?
  5. If surgery is recommended, am I a candidate for minimally-invasive surgery that might minimize the side effects and get me back to my normal routine sooner?
  6. What side effects should I expect and how can I prepare for those?
  7. How long will the treatment/recovery last?
  8. How effective is this treatment?
  9. What kind of follow-up will I need to ensure that I do not have a recurrence of this cancer down the road?
  10. For patients with advanced prostate cancer:  Am I eligible for any of the relatively new oral drugs or immunotherapy protocols that might extend my life?
