If my balance is impacted should i get a cane?

I have noticed that over soft ground i am more confident in my balance but over paved surfaces 'the fear' sets in. Let me tell you walking through London yesterday because of the tube strike felt precarious. I am on the waiting list to see a physio to work on my balance but i am considering getting a cane, i never thought this is something that would be in my life before my diagnosis but it seems to make sense now. Do any of you have a walking stick/cane? where does one even go to get such a thing? Google searches show very bland and practical aids but i feel if i have to have one i may as well for for a diamante skull topped on at least...
