You and your oncologist can work together to decide on the treatment plan that is right for you. Your oncologist will tell you of the treatment options available. Your oncologist can also tell you what kind of results you can expect and the side effects that each treatment may cause.
Remember, you are the most important member of your cancer care team. If there is something you do not understand, or if you have a question, ask someone on your team to explain it to you. Stay informed and tell your team how you feel. This will help both them and you make the best decisions for your treatment and care.
