Cancer Treatment Centers of America, (CTCA) is passionate about guiding cancer patients in their unique experiences starting with diagnosis, planning individual treatment, and aftercare and support. CTCA is world renowned in providing state of the art technology and advanced care options which include radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, and immunotherapy. Clinicians at CTCA with experienced cancer care are able to deliver evidence- informed supportive therapies to their patients to help alleviate nausea, fatigue, pain, and various other side effects.
Cancer and Treatment Options offered at Cancer and Treatment Centers of America will depend on the type of cancer an individual has been diagnosed with. Each approach to treatment is individually based, and is never the same from patient to patient. Whether it be lung, breast, colon, prostate, skin, or any other form of cancer, CTCA offers the most up to date and comprehensive treatments and therapies so that patients can make informed decisions and have optimal quality of life.
Lung cancer, for example has treatment options that vary from other types of cancers. It is the second most common type of cancer among American women and men, and is the leading cause of most cancer related deaths than any other cancers combined. Most lung cancers are treated with surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation therapy, sometimes a combination of all three. Clinicians at CTCA use targeted therapy which treats the cancer by focusing in on a specific gene mutation in a person’s tumor cells. Incorporating immunotherapy drugs further triggers the immune system to attack the cancer, but is an option for some, not all patients.
