Cancer Treatments

At Minnesota Oncology, physicians and staff strive for the best care of patients and their families by providing comprehensive diagnostics and cancer treatment. Every cancer is different, and so is every patient. That’s why treatment plans are developed for each patient based on individual needs.

Today, the major types of treatment for cancer are chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and hormone therapy. Each of these can be used alone, or oftentimes, patients will receive a combination of treatment types.  Physicians consider the stage of your disease and your overall health, lifestyle and personal preferences as they determine which treatment options to recommend.
