More than 1 million Americans receive a cancer diagnosis every year. For each one of them, the road from diagnosis through treatment will be a challenging one, during which they’ll have to rely on their doctors, friend and family, and the nurses providing care every day.
One disease, affecting many parts of the body
While many think of cancer as just one disease, there are actually over 100 different types of cancer, and they affect different parts of the body. At Palmetto, we treat cancer in different parts of the body, including:
- Brain Tumors
- Breast Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Prostate Cancer
- Bone Cancer
Early detection is crucial
As with many illnesses, the prospects of recovery greatly improve with early detection of the cancer. It’s never too early to start seeing a primary care doctor for regular checkups and screenings. If you don’t have a doctor, you can use our Find a Physician online tool.
