Not everyone wants or requires a second opinion, but it can be very reassuring, and no doctor should be insulted by your requesting to consult another doctor about your child’s life and well-being. Opinions may not, of course, be of equal value. Try to obtain them from pediatric specialists and/or oncologists familiar with cases like your child’s.
