Make sure that you have all the right elements to increase the likelihood of success: a high quality medical team, supportive and sensitive staff and high-tech facilities at affordable costs in a location with sunny, warm weather - where the majority of population speaks English.
According to the World Health Organization, the earlier a cancer is detected, the more chances you have to overcome it. Whether you need a second opinion, a diagnosis confirmation or full cancer treatment, don’t waste any more time.

Cancer screening involves a medical consultation and a series of health exams, blood tests and clinical analysis, with the goal to detect whether or not a person has cancer. The exams can be run before the person shows any symptoms.
Common reasons to run a cancer screening include: having cancer history in the family, leading a stressful life, obtaining non-standard blood test results or finding an abnormal tissue or mass.
If you were advised to run a cancer screening, don’t jeopardize your health – book your tests as soon as possible. When cancer is found early, it can be easier to cure or treat. Tackling cancer at a later stage may reduce the prospects of success, and involve more time, costs and mental strength.
As cancer screening tests can be done when there are no visible symptoms, it is important to keep in mind that even if you were advised to run a cancer screen, it may not mean that you have indeed cancer.
There are different cancer screening tests and some can carry risks. Screening tests can include:
- Physical exam and health history
- Clinical analysis and laboratory tests
- Imaging procedures
- Genetic tests
A cancer diagnosis may be daunting. Choosing the proper treatment even more so. Second opinions are critical when dealing with cancer – it is as important to confirm the diagnosis as it is ensuring that you receive the right treatment.
As there is a rapid innovation pace in oncology treatments, and since cancer treatments should be fully customized based on your specificities and health status, it is vital to seek the opinion of an expert on your type of cancer. Errors in both diagnosis and type of treatment prescribed are not rare, and can have a deterrent impact in overcoming cancer. A second opinion may drastically reduce this and increase the prospects of success. Confirming a cancer diagnosis with more than one health specialist is a common routine and you may feel more confident in your future health care decisions.
Second opinions typically provide you a diagnosis confirmation, details on the cancer type and stage, an outlook from the different experts involved in oncology treatments, possible treatment options and advice on what type of cancer treatment you should take.
Ensure that you have the right diagnostic and access to the most appropriate cancer treatment. Call us for free to discuss the next steps.
