Types of Cancer We Treat
We care for patients with any type of cancer at any stage. Among the common types of cancer, we treat are the following:
Breast cancer is a cancerous (malignant) tumor in the breasts that develops from cells that begin to grow abnormally. Today, breast cancer is treatable and highly curable thanks to earlier detection (mammogram) and advanced treatments.
Colorectal cancer refers to malignant tumors that begin in either the colon or the rectum. Tumors in these areas of the large intestine are called colon or rectal cancer depending on where they develop. Colorectal cancer is more survivable than ever before, thanks to early screening (colonoscopy) and improved treatments.
Cancerous tumors in a women's reproductive organs (the cervix, ovaries, uterus, vagina or vulva) are known as gynecologic cancers. Although signs and symptoms of these cancers may be difficult to detect, the Pap smear and pelvic exam are effective screening tools for cervical cancer.
Lung cancer describes abnormal cells that grow into malignant tumors in the lungs. Smoking and exposure to pollution and asbestos are the most common causes of lung cancer. As with most types of cancer, early detection and diagnosis are key to successful treatment of lung cancer.
This type of cancer develops in the prostate gland, which produces fluid for semen and is located beneath a man's bladder. Prostate cancer can be serious, but most men who develop it receive successful treatment.
