Each type of cancer is unique and the treatment for each cancer will vary depending on the extent or stage of the disease. Every patient and their family will determine with the cancer team, what treatment option is best for them.
Some treatments have the goal to cure, some to reduce symptoms or minimize spread and some to palliate (reduce pain and other symptoms).
Your cancer care may include one or more of the following treatments depending on the type and extent of your cancer. The treatment may be given independently, concurrently or sequentially.
