As shocking and overwhelming as hearing the words, “You have a liver tumor,” are for patients, hearing the words, “We know how to treat this,” are just as comforting and reassuring.
Firstly, you should find a doctor affiliated with a hospital that is accredited by the Commission on Cancer. These programs have multidisciplinary teams, information about access to clinical trials, and comprehensive, state-of-the-art care.
If there is a comprehensive cancer center, designated by the National Cancer Institute, near you, it's a good idea to seek care or at least an opinion from one of these top-notch centers. All of these cancer centers have dedicated patient access lines.
Or you can use the American Cancer Society's guidelines for choosing treatment facilities and health professionals. They include advice on how to talk with your doctor, a worksheet on evaluating doctors and treatment centers, and a database of hospitals and physicians.
