Topic: Major Cancer Centers
I am hoping some more experienced people can help with guidance.
I am a newly diagnosed CC patient and while there are a few more hurdles, plan has been for surgery at cancer center here in NH.
Have heard wonderful things on this board about docs at Lahey and am seeking second opinion there; there is a possibility I could pursue surgery at Lahey instead as they seem to have more direct experience.
However, when I look at the places listed as "major cancer centers" Lahey does not show up. Is this an area of concern? Or is it more that they do pioneering work on liver-related cancers but this is not general enough to gain recognition as "major" center?
Thanks -- and strength to everyone.
