How We Can Help
Cancer Treatment Information
Some of the key treatments that we provide include:
- Radiation therapy. High-energy radiation beams are often used to kill cancer cells.
- Chemotherapy. Medications that attack fast-growing cells can be effective in shrinking or eliminating tumors.
- Surgery. Surgeons may operate in order to obtain a tissue sample, remove a tumor, determine a cancer’s stage or reduce pain and discomfort.
- Bone marrow transplant. This procedure, which replaces damaged or destroyed bone marrow with new bone marrow stem cells, is helpful in some cases of leukemia, lymphoma and other cancers.
