      You should have a medial oncologist that is running the show for all treatment options. He/she will consult with a radiation oncologist if he/she feels radiation is appropriate for your case. At that point, your medical oncologist's office will probably schedule an appointment for you with a radiation oncologist.

      Are you already seeing an oncologist and radiation oncologist? If not you may be jumping the gun. If you already have a plan being put together - I see no reason not to go for a 2nd opinion.
