Diagnosing cancer

If cancer is suspected, your doctor will typically recommend a biopsy. A biopsy is a small sample of tissue used to help your doctor accurately diagnose the type of cancer. It also helps determine the stage of cancer, the size of the tumor and whether or not the cancer has spread to other areas of the body. From there, your doctor will work with you to determine the best treatment plan.

Treating cancer

Many types of cancer can develop in different areas of the body, as well as different types of tumors, the source of most cancers. While tumors can be benign, meaning they don't spread to other areas of the body, they can also be malignant, which means they are showing signs of invasion and may be potentially life-threatening. We tailor each treatment to your specific diagnosis and may recommend surgery, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy or targeted drug therapy.
