A question I get asked a lot is…”What do I need to ask my oncologist before I agree to treatment?”
Here is a handy list of 20 questions that you can print out and take with you to your next doctor’s appointment:
There’s also space for you to write notes and keep track of everything.
The most important questions you need to know
This list contains what you need to know, and think on, before you agree to cancer treatment…and before you decide if your current oncologist is really a good fit for you.
Also, please don’t worry if you happen to be reading this after dealing with cancer for many years already…or after trying various treatments with limited success: These questions will still help you to make much more informed decisions about your treatment moving forward!
While it’s ideal to start asap, you’ll always benefit from Precision Cancer Medicine no matter when you start using it in your treatment plan. How you can help your oncologist to help you better
1. You have options!
Even if it doesn’t feel like it, you have options for your cancer treatment, for your diagnostics, and for whom your treating oncologist will be. You and your doctor just might need some support from us to know how to access those options, which is what we’re here for.
2. You have the final say…
The answers from your doctor are just a starting place – so don’t worry, don’t stress. Think of it as the first in a series of conversations, where you’re just gathering data…it’s not the final word! So:
– Just ask your doctor the questions in this list…
– Gather the information on what they’re willing to do for you…
– And then let me and my team help fill in the gaps.
Never forget, this is your life…and you’re the boss!
You have power. And we are here to help you use it! So download or print out your free “20 Questions to ask your oncologist” list and use it when you next visit your oncologist.

Here’s a kind message from Laura who recently had a Precision Second Opinion with Alex: “The consultation with Alex exceeded my expectations. I not only learned a lot but within an hour Alex managed to build trust and confidence that I haven’t experienced before. Now I have a clear vision about the different options I can pursue. Looking forward to hearing back from you and Alex so we can discuss options for next steps.”
