TYPES OF CANCER
Cancer is a disease caused by the uncontrollable division of cells in a part or parts of the body. Unfortunately, this disease can happen anywhere in the body, meaning there are a number of different types of the illness. Some of the most common forms include:
- Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
- And more
As mentioned previously, we often use a variety of techniques to treat a patient’s cancer. These may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, transplants or any combination of the aforementioned. Furthermore, many cancers have become more easily curable in recent years, leading to a more hopeful outlook after diagnosis. Additionally, when consulting with our experienced medical team, they will suggest the best treatment type for each individual patient.
