Your cancer care team is wholly dedicated to your recovery and will work diligently to provide the high-quality care you deserve.
Your Cancer Treatment Plan
The first step after a cancer diagnosis is to chart a cancer treatment plan. This plan is a written roadmap to recovery, detailing the most effective treatment modalities for attacking your cancer and helping you regain control of your health.
Most oncology patients receive some combination of surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and radiation therapy. If doctors determine that radiotherapy is appropriate, you can expect to receive radiation five days per week for five to eight weeks at a time. These sessions are relatively painless, though they may cause mild side effects like fatigue and nausea.
