Keeping track of all the incoming information after your child has been diagnosed with a brain tumor can be a challenge. It can be difficult to remember everything you’re told. This is especially true when it comes to talking to your doctor. To help out the conversation, we have compiled a list of questions you can ask your child’s doctor which will give you a starting point to understanding your child’s condition. Don’t be afraid to ask follow up questions if they come to you.
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.
