Medical Oncology

The medical treatment that a patient receives is determined by the type, size and location of the cancer tumor(s). In some cases, specific genetic changes in the tumor may also determine the best type of treatment. Our medical oncologists prescribe a variety of treatments, often in combination, to treat cancer, including:

  • Chemotherapy treatment, in which are drugs used to kill cancer cells.
  • Immunotherapy treatment, which helps the immune system fight cancer.
  • Targeted therapy, which targets changes in cancer cells that help them grow, divide and spread.
  • Hormone therapy, which targets cancers that depend on hormones to grow such as breast and prostate cancer.
