Diagnosis & Treatment

Cancer is personal. It can affect every part of your life. And not all cancers are created equal – what happens with one person’s disease can be completely different for someone else with the same type of cancer. That’s why we will look at your case in a way that’s as individual as you are, drawing on the expertise and knowledge gained from research at South Carolina’s only National Cancer Institute-Designated Cancer Center.
