Questions to ask your doctor at diagnosis

  • Nurse

The Cancer Council has created a list of questions you might like to ask your doctor and treating team about your diagnosis, treatment and clinical trials.

On the website it says:

“When cancer is diagnosed you enter into a partnership with your doctor and other health care professionals. To help you get the best care you have the right to:

  • ask questions
  • be specifically informed about the details of your care
  • make an informed choice of treatment from the options available to you

It is important to ask questions, especially if you are unsure or unclear and feel you need more information.”
