Cancer can impact your life in various ways. You may wind up with one impending thought: What do I do now? If you are a cancer patient or survivor, you know that your cancer treatment journey is filled with multiple doctor’s appointments. While these appointments can be overwhelming, below are certain things you can do to utilise the time you have with the physician. Here are some tips recommended by the top cancer hospitals in India: 

  1. Ask the key questions: One of the most important things to do is listen to what the oncologist has to say as a lot of questions may get answered and listening closely may make you think of additional questions. Keeping that in mind, here are some things which are important to discuss:
    • What are the throat cancer treatment options and how long will the treatment take?
    • How will the treatment affect the cancer routine?
    • What should I do if I develop new symptoms after I begin treatment?
    • What support resources are available to cope with cancer diagnosis?
  2. Know your oncologist: Knowing who your multidisciplinary cancer team is and the role they play in cancer care can provide you with confidence in your choice. You should be actively involved in treatment decisions and understanding the various cancer treatment options. Speak to your oncologist about your cancer treatment plan and the next steps in the treatment, including who to talk to and when.

    Bring it all the necessary documentation: In order to have a proper consultation, your oncologist must have all the reports and requested materials. This includes all the copies of scans, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, and other imaging tests that were done and pathology slides if a biopsy was performed. In addition to this, it is advised to bring in all the medications you take. Before choosing an appropriate treatment, your cancer doctor have to know what you’re taking in order to make sure there are no potential reactions. You can bring someone with you - a family member or a friend - to be another set of ears in the room. They can offer emotional support and help you remember what the doctor says and remind you of important questions that you don’t want to forget to ask.
     
  4. Create a treatment plan: Over the course of your treatment, you will see a number of different doctors and other health professionals. Your current throat cancer treatment plan:

    gives you information on whom to contact if you have any questions about the cancer treatment.
    • outlines what the current and future treatment is
    • gives you information on whom to contact if you have any questions about the cancer treatment.
