Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Along with carcinomas, adenocarcinomas are the most common forms of cancer, and can affect many different parts of the body. Adenocarcinomas specifically affect glandular tissues (epithelium). Since glandular tissue is prevalent throughout the body, this cancer of the epithelium can affect many essential organs, such as the colon, cervix, pancreas, prostate, stomach, thyroid and breast. When a tumor is discovered, a biopsy is taken to determine if the tumor is an adenocarcinoma. If cancerous, treatment must begin quickly. At the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute, specialists provide the most advanced diagnostic technology, cancer treatments and minimally invasive procedures for patients in our community.
