Know your goals for cancer treatment
Cancer is a unique disease where abnormal cells can grow and invade normal tissue. Chemotherapy targets these abnormal, fast-growing cells to stop or slow cancer from spreading. There are also other drugs that are used to treat cancer in different ways, including targeted therapy, hormone therapy, and immunotherapy.
Cancer treatments often come with noticeable side effects because the methods used to destroy cancer cells can destroy healthy ones as well. As a result, cancer treatments can take their toll on patients.
Your Adventist Health Castle cancer team understands the importance of helping patients through their treatment. We can help you manage the side effects while helping you fight cancer. Whether your goal is to live a higher quality of life or eliminate cancer for good, our team will be by your side, every step of the way.
