When Would I Use MSK Direct?

MSK Direct can help you even before you receive a confirmed diagnosis of cancer or if you are looking for a second opinion regarding a diagnosis. You may contact MSK when you receive results from a blood test, imaging exam, or pathology report that may indicate you have cancer, or when another physician recommends that you consult with an oncologist.

Even if you are already in treatment at MSK or elsewhere, you are welcome to use this program. Your treatment team should continue to be your primary point of contact, but the MSK team could advise you of the options you may have as your treatment progresses.
