It can confirm the correct diagnosis – and thus take away your uncertainty – or it can detect and correct a wrong assessment. In the extreme case, cancer is not immediately recognized and only discovered by soliciting a second opinion from an expert.
However, it can also happen that a benign change is interpreted as cancer and thus unnecessary invasive treatments are initiated. The chances and risks of the proposed therapy can also be better assessed by obtaining a second opinion and avoiding unnecessary surgeries. I am happy to assist you, as well as your doctor, for a second opinion (review).
Clarification of unclear findings
To do this, I carry out assessments on the basis of images, findings from diagnostic procedures and surgical reports. Of course, the assessment of conspicuous findings is of particular importance. The result of this review is a finding that clarifies whether the diagnosis and previous procedure were correct or not. If necessary, you also receive suggestions for alternatives. There are sometimes small facts that can significantly affect the diagnosis!
Here, too, I draw on my well-founded, specialized training and my many years of international experience as a specialist in breast cancer diagnostics.
Of course, you can also ask for a second opinion on an “inconspicuous” finding to ensure that the interpretation is correct.
