Questions for your Doctor: Chemotherapy


Note: Your Urologist may suggest that chemotherapy is appropriate for your case. There is nothing wrong with that, and you'll probably want to ask him some questions. However, if this does happen to you, your first question should be "Do you know a good medical oncologist in the area that has treated testicular cancer in the past?" The urologist probably knows something about chemotherapy, but you are better off saving most of your questions for an oncologist. Beware that urologists in Germany and other places in Europe like to prescribe chemo themselves. If this happens to you, I would urge you to go to a medical oncologist instead.

If you have any comments, questions, or suggestions about this list, please feel free to send me an email!
