You’re Still In Control
Most patients don’t need to start treatment right away. You have time to think about your treatment options and ask as many questions as you’d like.
We also support your right to seek a second opinion from a different doctor at a different cancer center. You should explore all your care options to see if new treatments are available for your specific cancer.
If you feel overwhelmed by all of this information, like most newly diagnosed cancer patients, we strongly encourage you to talk to a professional about your emotional distress. It is normal for cancer patients to feel depressed, anxious and scared. Your Ellis Medicine cancer care team can connect you with support resources such as counselors, support groups and more to help you healthily work through these feelings.
