Mesothelioma Second Opinion

Mesothelioma Second Opinion

Why a Second Opinion Mesothelioma Diagnosis is Important

Most Mesothelioma patients will get a diagnosis and proceed quickly to treatment without getting a second opinion. 

Early-stage Mesothelioma is often mistaken for more common illnesses.

Getting a second opinion on Mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment can confirm which options are best for you.

Common Misdiagnoses of Mesothelioma is bronchitis, pneumonia, and COPD in its early stages (1-2). If you have a history of asbestos exposure, you should see a doctor once a year to get tested.

Doctors that are unfamiliar with malignant Mesothelioma can give a patient a misdiagnosis, resulting in lost treatment time and negatively impacting a Mesothelioma patient’s survival and well-being. Getting a second opinion from an experienced Mesothelioma doctor can mean the difference in patient living for months or years.
