When faced with a new diagnosis, which involves surgery for the genital system and especially the penis, you may feel confused and you may need to understand better what is happening to you.
In this circumstance, it may be difficult to make a major decision, especially if there is more than one solution in front of you, if surgery involves some risks, if after surgery, the relationship life may change dramatically.
Many people turn to the network to try to understand more, but the network sometimes does not help, it may even create confusion as the information does not come from qualified professionals and may also be contradictory: those who read may not have all the technical and emotional tools to filter out and weigh the validity of the many sources of information, sometimes unknown.
What could you do to deepen your knowledge and to make sure that the diagnosis and solution identified by your doctor is the only or most appropriate one for your case?
Since the network can be misleading, it is best to avoid the “do it yourself”: it would rather be profitable to ask the opinion of another qualified doctor, as it is the case in other fields of medicine and surgery.
Therefore, my suggestion is to get a second opinion by another Urologist and/or Andrologist: the Patient must not believe that, in so doing, will make a wrong to his doctor since the pursuit of a second opinion on the one hand is a normal practice, that medical doctors know and accept, on the other hand the research of a second opinion is humanly understandable for those who have to face a new and challenging diagnosis.
What is the second opinion about in penile surgery and genital surgery in general?
The second opinion is a further opinion that the Patient can obtain in relation to his clinical condition and that can help to have:
- More technical and scientific information coming from the perspective of another professional with different experience;
- A broader view of the treatments and therapies available in order to make a more responsible choice;
- The possibility of confirming the diagnosis received by your own doctor and, along with it, having the possibility of finding comfort and serenity about what to do. In this case, the Patient has also the confirmation that the treatment is appropriate;
- The opportunity to be an active part in treating his own illness and therefore to face it more consciously and more serenely;
