Help on cancer for newbie

Hi, I have a chinese wife. She has a cousin who is recently diagnosed with cancer in China Fujian. 5 years ago, her cousin had part of his stomach removed as he was diagnosed with cancer. But after that the doctor realised they may have made a mistake.

Now they hope to reconfirm with Singapore specialists what is the best approach to take but they cannot come to Singapore as they are not rich. Do you have any advice for them (e.g. Can I pay for consultation with specialist by showing specialist the document?)

The below link are the diagnosis.

Hi,
How are you?  Can you elaborate on the mistake made by the patient's attending physician? Though the documents may be helpful, it is still important to have direct clinical examination of the patient for proper evaluation and management. Treatment usually depends on a variety of factors such as the diagnosis, physical examination, symptoms ,results of the initial diagnostic tests, as well as additional tests that may be requested. The patient can seek another doctor's opinion in China if travel to your place is not possible at this time.  Take care and best regards.
