What is cancer treatment?
Cancer treatments have a single goal, though they accomplish it differently. The goal is to destroy, modify, control or remove cancerous cells. By eradicating tumors entirely, the hope is that the cancer can no longer spread or reoccur, allowing the patient to live a full life. The best chance for success is through early detection, but in many cases even advanced stages can be fought aggressively and successfully.
There's more reason than ever to anticipate a positive outcome. Major advances have improved screening, diagnostic and treatment techniques for many types of cancer – and will ultimately help lead us to finding a cure. At Florida Hospital, we continue to push the boundaries to improve those odds.
