Just as patients are unique and cancers vary, so each treatment may be different. In determining whether surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or any of these in combination will be your most effective course of treatment, your physician considers your general health and medical history, as well as the type, size and location of your cancer.
The Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital offers a multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment, including radiation therapy, in an outpatient setting requiring no overnight stay.
In addition to your primary treatment approach, your doctor may recommend additional therapies or services to support your treatments or to help you cope with side effects. These may include nutritional consultation, patient support groups, massage, naturopathy or homeopathic prescriptions, yoga or relaxation therapy, to name a few.
