In the United States, one out of every four people will develop cancer. Because this disease touches people of all ages, races and socioeconomics, most people will be affected by cancer in one way or another during their lifetime.
Since each patient’s situation is unique, cancer specialists must carefully review each individual’s record and tailor the treatment to best meet that patient’s needs.
Once diagnosed, cancer patients often are treated with surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, or a combination of these treatments.
The best cancer care is a unique blend of surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and support services such as nutritional counseling, pain management and social services. Other treatment services include prostate brachytherapy and three-dimensional treatment planning.
