Cancer Treatments

Cancer treatments are used in different ways for different cancers at different times, often through a combination of treatment options. The board-certified oncologists at Lima Memorial Cancer Institute work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan based on the type and stage of your cancer. Your treatment plan is based on your individual needs.

There are two primary cancer treatments:

Chemotherapy treats cancer using anticancer drugs.

Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays generated by equipment outside of the body, such as X-rays, or radioactive implants in the body.

Some forms of cancer may also require surgery.

At Lima Memorial Cancer Institute, we constantly follow current research about new cancer treatments to stay at the leading edge of cancer care.
