New Thoughts on Chemotherapy
CTCA offers innovative methods for delivering chemotherapy that may enhance effectiveness and decrease side effects: Fractionated Dose Chemotherapy, Intra-Arterial Chemotherapy, and Chemotherapy Resistance Testing.
Complementary therapy options offered at CTCA, such as nutrition, naturopathic medicine, and mind-body medicine, can help minimize side effects during and after chemotherapy.
The Latest Radiation Therapies
Your doctors at CTCA may recommend radiation therapy as a first choice over surgery or as a follow up to surgery to attack any cancerous cells that may still remain in your body.
During radiation therapy, high-energy beams are focused on the tissue in the area where the tumor was removed. There are two ways to deliver radiation - externally and internally. Your professional team at CTCA will work with you to determine which form of radiation therapy is best for you.
Immunotherapy summons the strength of your own immune system to fight your cancer; it is one of newest frontiers in cancer treatment, and CTCA is at the leading edge.
At CTCA, several types of immunotherapies, including stem cell transplantation, monocolonal antibody therapy, and mini-transplant therapy are available, if appropriate, to stimulate your immune system to fight against cancer.
Supportive Hormone Therapies
In many cancers, a tumor may be hormone-receptive, meaning that it needs certain hormones in order to grow. If this is your case, your CTCA doctors may consider hormone therapy (designed to starve your tumor of these hormones) an appropriate treatment option for you.
There are several types of hormone therapy medications that can be prescribed, depending on your cancer.
