A diagnosis of lung cancer can leave you and your loved ones feeling uncertain, anxious and overwhelmed. As your health care team talks about your diagnosis and treatment, ask questions about anything you don’t understand. Good communication with your doctor will help improve the quality of the care you receive. Before your appointments, it’s a good idea to bring a list of questions to the appointment and write down the doctor’s responses. Many individuals find it helpful to bring a copy of their list of questions for their doctors to use during the appointment discussion. In addition, if possible, bring someone with you to any appointment; another set of ears can help reduce confusion.
