Cancer Conditions

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.

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

Cancer Treatments

Your cancer diagnosis is personal and your treatment should be too. When you and your doctor decide on the best plan of attack for your particular cancer, we serve as your partner every step of the way. Our treatments and medical expertise allow you to pursue the plan that works for your particular situation.

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.
