Leukemia and second opinion
Second opinion refers to seeking an additional consultation to be sure on a previous medical opinion. Patients’ who are not satisfied with the existing diagnosis/treatment/therapy can get pinion from other oncologists.
Each blood cancer has subtypes which makes it a complex disease. This means that the signs of the disease, how it’s diagnosed and treated and the expected outcome depends largely on the right diagnosis. So even before you begin or continue with treatment, it’s important that your condition is diagnosed correctly.

If you have been diagnosed with leukemia or myeloid malignancies — your treatment options will depend on:
- The type of leukemia — acute or chronic
- Specific characteristics of your cancer cells, such as mutations, DNA changes and expressions of abnormal proteins
- Whether leukemia cells were found in your cerebrospinal fluid or in other areas of your body
