Treatment options include:
- Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplant Program: Some, but not all, types of cancer can be treated with Stem Cell/Bone Marrow Transplant. This process combines high dose chemotherapy and sometimes radiation therapy followed by infusion of stem cells. For more information regarding our Program please follow our link.
- Concurrent Therapy: Many patients receive chemotherapy and radiation therapy at different time points. Concurrent Chemoradiation is when patients receive chemotherapy and radiation therapy on the same day.
- Hormonal Therapy: Therapy that adds or removes hormones from the body to stop or slow the growth of certain cancers. Hormone therapy can include surgery to remove the production of a hormone, or medications to block the body's production of hormones.
- Immunotherapy: Medications that work with the body's own immune system to help the body fight cancer.
- IV Chemotherapy: Intravenous (IV) chemotherapy is the most common method. When given IV, a catheter is inserted to carry the chemotherapy drug into the bloodstream through a vein. If you are going to receive IV chemotherapy, your doctor may discuss the need for a central line, such as a port, which is a more secure type of catheter.
- Oral Chemotherapy: Drugs are swallowed, either in pill or liquid form.
