Keeping track of new information after you child has been diagnosed with a brain tumor can be a challenge. Knowing what's important and remembering everything you are told can present challenges. The following are a list of suggested questions you can ask your child's doctor at their appointments. It's also a good idea to write down any other questions you might have in between appointments so that you can bring them with 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.
