  • explain what molecular markers are, how they affect disease prognosis and treatment
  • whether you need to perform any additional screening in order to have a targeted therapy for breast cancer
  • what treatment method is an option for your case: surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy
  • whether it is necessary to combine targeted therapy drugs and chemotherapy

Documents required for Doctor Second Opinion

For the second opinion please provide:

Pathology results (biopsy), in which the specialist can find important information about the type of breast cancer, stage, cell ploidy and proliferation, the status of breast cancer hormone receptors, HER2 status, breast cancer gene expression. All this is for prescribing the right therapy.

Imaging results to look for spread of breast cancer in the body: to look for suspicious areas that may be cancer / to know how far the disease may have spread / to help determine if treatment is working / to look for possible signs of cancer returning after treatment (relapse):

  • Chest x-ray – to see if the cancer has spread to your lungs
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan. This test is most commonly used to look at the chest and/or abdomen to see if breast cancer has spread to other organs, such as the lungs or liver
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. MRI provides detailed images of the soft tissues of the body. This test can be used to look at the breasts or other parts of the body, such as the brain or spinal cord, for possible spread of cancer
  • Breast ultrasound. Ultrasound (ultrasound) of the breast and armpits
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan. Whole-body tomography using a radioactive sugar (FDG), which is absorbed primarily in cancer cells
  • Osteoscintigraphy. A bone scan can help determine if the disease has spread to your bones. It can show all the bones in your body at once and can find small areas of cancer that are not visible on a regular X-ray.

Based on the results of an online doctor’s consultation, additional diagnosis examinations may also be required for a second opinion. Doctor will tell you which of these tests you may need.
