After your cancer diagnosis, your primary care physician will begin discussing your cancer treatment plan with you and your family. At SERO, we specialize in radiation therapy, a localized, highly effective treatment for many types of cancer. However, your doctor may suggest other treatment options in addition to or outside of radiation. There will likely be many treatment options available, and making a decision may feel overwhelming. Understanding what that decision-making process will look like is a good place to start.
A written cancer treatment plan outlines all aspects of a patient’s cancer and treatments. This ensures every provider and caretaker understands the patient’s history and goals and can provide treatment accordingly.
