Talk With Your Health Care Team


Questions to ask your health care provider

Talking openly with your health care provider is important in making informed decisions about your treatment journey. These suggested questions are a starting point to help you learn more about your cancer care and treatment. You are also encouraged to ask additional questions that are important to you.

  1. How will we know if the treatment is working?

  2. What side effects should I expect on treatment?

  3. Is there anything I can do to help manage side effects?

  4. What symptoms or side effects should I tell you about right away?

  5. Do I need to change what I eat during treatment?

  6. Are there any limits on what I can do?

  7. What kind of exercise should I do, and how often?

  8. Will I need special tests such as imaging scans and blood tests, and how often?
