Being told you have cancer is an extremely stressful and worrying time, but you need to arm yourself with as much information as possible to ensure you get the best treatment. In this short clip from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society as part of their Cancer Coach Live initiative, the team addresses what questions to ask your oncologist after receiving a lymphoma diagnosis.
Important subjects to raise with your oncologist include determining what type of lymphoma you have, what stage the cancer is at, if there is any known cause for the type you have, what experience the oncologist has in treating lymphoma, and whether you should be contacting any other doctors or medical professionals.
