AnMed Advanced Cancer Treatments
Your unique treatment plan is based on your type and stage of cancer, overall health and other personal factors. Treatment options include:
Cancer tumors have unique signatures—markers or chemical signals—that doctors can use to predict the response to certain treatments. If your doctors order a molecular analysis of your cancer, they may be able to prescribe treatments that target the tumor’s marker. This is called targeted therapy, or precision medicine. It’s available for lung cancer, breast cancer, bone marrow cancers and certain other types of cancer.
It’s just one of many ways we personalize your care at AnMed Cancer Center.

You’ll also benefit from supportive services, including classes and support groups and help to manage stress, pain and other symptoms. Genetic counseling is also available to help you understand your unique cancer risks.
