Common Cancers we treat

Breast Cancer

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer is a disease that forms in the cells of the breasts. It can occur in both men and women, but it’s far more common in women.

Getting a diagnosis.

Your doctor will most likely order a mammogram—if it shows any abnormalities, a biopsy will be performed to determine if you have cancer. If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, your doctor will work to establish the extent or stage of your cancer, which helps determine a treatment plan.

Treatment options.

Your doctor determines your breast cancer treatment options based on your type of cancer, its stage, and whether the cancer cells are sensitive to hormones. Your overall health and family history are also taken into consideration as well. Treatment options include:

  • Breast cancer surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormone Therapy
  • Targeted thereapy drugs
  • Immunotherapy
  • Palliative care

Lung Cancer

What is lung cancer?

There are two general types of lung cancer. The first is non-small cell, which is an umbrella term for several types of cancer including squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and large cell carcinoma. The second is small cell—but the majority of lung cancers are non-small cell.

Getting a diagnosis.

If you have a history of smoking and have quit, you’re a good candidate for a low-dose lung CT scan, which helps diagnose lung cancer at a much earlier stage. A lung scan can also help rule out other health conditions.

Treatment options.

You and your doctor will choose a treatment plan based on several factors, including your overall health and the type and stage of your cancer. Treatment options include:

  • Surgery
  • Radiation therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Stereotactic body radiotherapy
  • Targeted thereapy drugs
  • Immunotherapy
  • Palliative care

Prostate Cancer

What is prostate cancer?

Prostate cancer occurs in the prostate gland, which produces the seminal fluid that transports sperm. It usually grows slowly and is initially confined to the prostate gland, where it may not cause serious harm. However, some types are aggressive and can spread quickly.

Getting a diagnosis.

If a DRE (Digital Rectal Exam) or PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) test detects an abnormality, your doctor may recommend further tests to determine whether you have prostate cancer, such as an ultrasound, biopsy, or MRI. If a biopsy confirms the presence of cancer, the next step is to determine a treatment plan.

Treatment options.

For men diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer, treatment may not be necessary right away. More aggressive prostate cancer may require one or more of the following treatments:

  • Surgery to remove prostate
  • Radiation therapy
  • Hormone therapy
  • Freezing prostate tissue
  • Chemotherapy
  • Immunotherapy
