What are cancer treatments?
A team of doctors with different expertise will often work together on a patient’s individualized treatment plan. Cancer treatment is based on the type and stage of cancer. Associated side effects are also taken into consideration. Other factors include patient wishes and overall health.
- Your care options: It is important to talk with your doctor and treatment team about the options for cancer treatment and cancer care. They will explain to you the goals for your treatment plan and how it will affect you. There are many treatment options, and they are often performed in combination and/or sequentially to be most effective.
- Your confidence: After receiving a cancer diagnosis, making a decision about cancer treatment is an important step. You need to feel confident and comfortable with your choices. Doctors at MaineHealth are dedicated to working with patients to develop a cancer treatment and care plan that is the most effective and best for them.
