Medical Second Opinion - Research based studies
Two recent studies have shown that seeking a second medical opinion may result in changing the course of treatment; or getting a different diagnosis. In a University of Michigan study of breast cancer patients, more than 50% of them changed their treatment plan after getting a second opinion on their diagnosis from a “tumour board” of oncologists, surgeons and radiation therapists. In a Johns Hopkins University study of around 6,000 cancer patients, researchers found that one to two percent patients who sought a second opinion after a tumour biopsy had received a misdiagnosis.
