Screening and Diagnostics
Being part of the Porter Cancer Care Center and the Cancer Center at Parker Adventist Hospital, Cypress Hematology and Oncology has direct access to comprehensive screening tools and advanced cancer diagnostics. Not only does this speed up the treatment planning process, but it also makes the treatment experience significantly easier on patients because everything they need is under one roof.
Chemotherapy, or "chemo" as it is often referred to, is a body-wide treatment that uses powerful drugs to destroy cancer cells.
At Cypress Hematology and Oncology we utilize chemotherapy to:
- Prevent the spread of cancer
- Slow cancer growth
- Relieve symptoms caused by cancer
- Cure cancer by destroying cancerous cells
Depending on the diagnosis and specific treatment plan, chemotherapy can be administered via injection, topical creams, pills, capsules, liquids that a patient swallows, or through intravenous (IV) infusion. No matter what delivery method is used, the physicians and staff at Cypress Hematology and Oncology try to ensure that every patient undergoing chemotherapy is comfortable and relaxed during the entire process.
As part of the Porter Cancer Care Center, Cypress Hematology and Oncology has access to clinical trials that give us access to investigational treatments and experiential cancer therapies.
A clinical trial is research (often sponsored by a pharmaceutical company) conducted by physicians on patients to determine the effectiveness of a newly developed drug or technology in a real world setting. Investigational treatments provide patients with additional treatment options otherwise not available while contributing to cancer research.
