If you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, put your trust in the experts at Essentia Health. We offer comprehensive cancer care from diagnosis through rehabilitation using the most advanced technology and treatments available.
Your oncologist and other members of your cancer care team will answer your questions and partner with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that promotes healing while managing pain and symptoms. Our goal is to provide you with the guidance, support, and treatment you need throughout your cancer journey.
A medical oncologist is a doctor with specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer using medications like chemotherapy. Surgical oncologists specialize in removing cancerous tumors during operations. Radiation oncologists specialize in treating cancer using high-energy X-rays that kill cancer cells.
If you're experiencing any symptoms you feel may be cancer-related, you should talk to your primary care doctor right away. You'll be referred to an oncologist if you have a questionable test result or screening or have received a diagnosis of cancer.
