Second opinion is a medical process wherein a patient seeks an alternate review of his or her diagnosis and course of treatment by another, or a few other specialist doctors to confirm the diagnosis and validate their treatment. Cancer is a very complex disease with rapid advancements taking place in the way we diagnose or treat it. So, it becomes imperative that a second opinion is sought so as to have a better understanding of this complex disease which in turn can help us to take an informed decision about the treatment plan.
A precise diagnosis is the first stepping stone to a correct and effective treatment. In this era of molecular diagnostics and targeted therapy, it becomes critical to have the most accurate tissue diagnosis before the treatment is initiated. A second opinion at this stage may confirm the diagnosis or offer an alternative diagnosis with some additional information.
We have a site-specific (organ-specific) diagnostic team in the laboratory which closely coordinates with the clinical disease management group in order to provide optimum treatment to the patient. We provide most advanced, guideline-appropriate testing to each & every case submitted to us.
In order to proceed with the 2nd opinion in diagnostics, the following should be provided by the patient/ relatives to the laboratory:
Once we have the necessary material and payment, we proceed with processing of biopsy material.
We perform routine microscopy, special stains, immunohictochemistry studies, biomarker, theranostic/nano medicine studies and molecular tests on the biopsy material & provide a comprehensive report. More information can be accessed at:
