There are many other cancers that may be treated by surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormones, or other methods. The treatment of each of these cancers requires a full understanding of the behavior of the cancer, the extent of the cancer, and the best methods of treatment for the particular situation. An in-depth discussion with your surgeon, medical or radiation oncologist may help you understand the various options available. The cancer center staff can help you understand cancer as a disease and treatments in general. To talk with the Cancer Center staff, call 719-557-5525 or 800-228-4039, ext. 5525.
