Types of Treatment
We will coordinate your care and treatment, which may include any or all of the following:
Treatment for cancer involves more than just medical interventions. The support you receive from those around you can benefit you in so many ways. Whether it's emotional support, someone to watch your children or a hand preparing meals, it is OK to accept help. We will be glad to help you find the resources you need to help ease your concerns so you can concentrate on your health and healing.
Chemotherapy uses drugs to fight cancer throughout your body. Though chemotherapy drugs are administered in a variety of ways, the most common is through infusion. We have an infusion center on site so our patients can get this therapy in a comfortable and convenient setting.
If you need surgery to remove a cancerous tumor or check the surrounding tissue and lymph nodes to see if a cancer has spread, Dr. Awomolo will refer you to a skilled surgical oncologist and consult with them on your case and outcomes.
Radiation therapy kills cancer cells using high-energy rays. It can be delivered externally, from a machine, or through internally placed radioactive materials near the cancer cells. If radiation therapy is a good option for you, we will work with a radiation oncologist to provide this service.
Hormone therapy is a way to prevent the cancer cells from getting or using the hormones they need to grow. We may administer hormone treatments through injections or pills, or recommend you have a surgical oncologist remove the organs that make hormones.
Targeted therapy is a type of biological therapy that uses medication to block the growth and spread of cancer. Targeted therapy can be given as infusion, injections, or oral therapy (pills).
Our goal is to help our patients maintain independence and increase comfort by managing the symptoms of cancer and the side effects of its treatment. We’ll talk with you about what is causing you pain or discomfort and work on a combination of approaches to lessen their effects.
Through our affiliation with the New Hanover Regional Medical Center Zimmer Cancer Center, patients enrolling in clinical trials will benefit from ongoing programs at NHRMC, which are in turn linked to efforts at universities and research facilities across the country.
