What to Expect
About 60 percent of patients will undergo some type of surgery to treat their cancer. In some cases, surgery is the only treatment required. It may also be combined with chemotherapy or radiation as part of an overall treatment plan. We work closely with a team of general, colorectal and reconstructive and plastic surgeons.
Radiation therapy uses focused, high-energy photon beams to destroy cancer cells. More than half of cancer patients will undergo some sort radiation therapy. It can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other therapies, shrinking tumors before surgery or chemotherapy or destroying any cancer cells that might remain after other treatments.
Chemotherapy uses powerful drugs to kill cancer cells, control their growth or relieve pain symptoms. Chemotherapy may involve a single drug or a combination of two or more drugs, depending on the type of cancer and its rate of progression.
Chemotherapy can be used in combination with other treatments to either shrink tumors before surgery or radiation (neoadjuvant therapy), or to make sure all cancer cells have been eliminated after other treatments have been performed (adjuvant therapy).
Immunotherapy is a form of cancer treatment that uses the power of the body’s own immune system to prevent, control, and eliminate cancer.
