Deciding on Treatment

  1. Brachytherapy

    Brachytherapy is radiation treatment that is given inside the patient, as close to the cancer as possible. The radiation is delivered to the body site with radioactive isotopes inside wires, seeds, or rods. These devices are called implants.

  2. Surgery For Cancer Treatment

    One type of surgery for cancer is curative. This procedure removes the cancerous tumor or growth from the body. Surgeons use curative surgery when the cancerous tumor is in one specific area of the body. This type of treatment is often considered the primary treatment, but other types of cancer treatments, such as radiation, may be used before or after the surgery.

  3. Targeted Therapy for Brain Tumors

    Certain targeted therapies use various molecules to eliminate or reduce tumor cells or block their destructive behavior. Most are still in the research stages.
