Hi There. Unless there is an oncologist on Just Answer; personally I would recommend getting this type of advice only from your treating specialist. They are in the best position to help you make this decision as they have full access to your medical history including your staging, evidence of metastases and other relevant clinical information.

If you have been given advice by a specialist and you have good reason to believe it may not be correct or best practice, it may be worth seeking a second opinion from another oncologist.
