Caring for you during chemotherapy.
About Medical Oncology - Chemotherapy
You may be anxious to find the right cancer treatment. Or you may be anxious about starting chemo. If chemotherapy is recommended as part of your treatment plan, Ascension’s medical oncology care teams are here to help support you.
You’ve probably heard of chemotherapy as a cancer treatment. But you may still have many questions. Ascension’s oncologists and care teams are here to talk through all your concerns. And we’ll work with you to create a care plan customized to your needs.
Treating cancer, nurturing you
Because chemotherapy is used to help stop or slow down the growth of cancer cells, you might be worried about what else it does to your body. We’re here to support you and help you understand how to manage any side effects.
Care plans designed just for you
You may be surprised to find that chemotherapy options have advanced over the years. For example, precision medicine is a treatment for some types of cancer that matches the right medicine to your specific genetic makeup.
Chemotherapy may be used as your only treatment, or it may be combined with other treatments such as radiation therapy or surgery. Your Ascension care team will work closely with you to determine the treatment plan that’s right for you.
From your initial evaluation through treatment and beyond, our care teams are dedicated to helping you feel comfortable and supported.
