Questions to ask your doctor

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with cancer, you probably have lots of questions you want to ask your doctor.  Learning more about the disease and its treatment helps you make informed choices.


Making a list of questions to take to appointments can help you remember what you want to ask, especially if you are feeling stressed about your diagnosis. Cancer Council has a handy checklist of common questions you can use as a guide. There’s also tips on how to make the most of your visits with your doctor.
