Visit your Sanford cancer care team for:
Cancer screenings: Take steps to detect cancer in its earliest stages – when it may be easier to treat or cure. Sanford Cancer Centers offer screenings for many types of cancer.
Medical oncology: A medical oncologist is your main health care provider when you have cancer. They lead your cancer care team, working with surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurses and other specialists.
Oncologic surgery: Surgery is one of the most common types of cancer treatment, and Sanford oncologic surgeons specialize in treating many types of cancer.
Radiation oncology: Radiation therapy targets tumors to cure or control cancer. Your Sanford oncologist may use radiation alone or in addition to surgery, chemotherapy and other treatments.
Immunotherapy: One way to fight cancer is with your own body’s natural defenses. Sanford oncologists offer immunotherapy to boost your immune system and help it identify and stop cancer cells.
Oncofertility: Cancer treatment can affect your fertility, but it doesn’t have to. Sanford Oncofertility helps you preserve your family planning options before and during cancer treatment, including egg freezing, sperm banking and more.
Cancer survivorship: Your cancer care doesn’t stop with your last treatment. We continue to provide cancer support through survivorship. We can give you, your family and your caregivers the resources you need.
