It is important to remember that no treatment is without risks. When your doctor offers you a particular type of treatment they are trying to decide the best option for you based on the associated risks and benefits to each possible treatment.
In coming to a decision about your treatment they will have taken into account many things such as recent trial outcomes, statistics and past experiences with similar situations. It is essential to remember that you have your own say in your treatment.
Our doctors will try to present the facts to you in a way that you can understand to help you make the decision and it is important to ask questions so you and your family know what is happening and why. If there is anything you do not understand ask the doctor, the nurse or any of the healthcare professionals involved – we are all here to help you.
