What is a second opinion in cancer treatment?
A second opinion, by definition, means, “Seeking advice from a different expert (oncologist) to make sure advice from the first such expert is correct”. Second opinion is a patient’s method of finding an alternative review of his or her condition and care plan by another, or by a few other qualified doctors to confirm the condition and validate their care.

Fee of Second opinion:
The fee of availing a second opinion is much similar to the fee of initial oncologist consultation. The price ranges from INR 800 to INR 3000, depending on the oncologists.
