Re: More biopsy questions?
Since I have just gone through the process, I can share some of my experiences.
I do not know if you really need a specialist to perform a biopsy, unless you are insterested in the kind of biopsy that I went through, then any Uro should be able to do it. Please search my posts on biopsy, please also note that my insurance won't pay for the kind of biopsy I chose.
If you are interested in a specialist, I described mine in my responses to Infinity29 post.
As fas as arranging for a second opinion, you can contact either John Hopkins or Bostwick Labs. Your doctor's office will ask you to fill out a form to release your info. Both JH and Bostwick do have forms for you to fill as well. Not as complicated, I was also clueless when I started. Your doctor's office may already be familiar with the process and can facilitate the whole process, you just need to ask. It is quite a common request.
