VA Western New York Healthcare System
Cancer Care Oncology
The Comprehensive Cancer Center at VA Western New York Healthcare System employs the latest technologies, skilled medical professionals to care for the body, mind and total well-being of patients diagnosed with cancer.
Prevention and early diagnosis are key to limiting the health risks associated with cancer. Self-screening for certain cancers, such as breast or testicular cancer, should be done regularly. Other cancer screenings should be performed by a health care provider. Your Patient Aligned Care Team can provide more information about screenings appropriate for your age, gender, and medical history.
The medical services of the Comprehensive Cancer Center include:
Surgical removal of cancerous tissue
Immunotherapy, which helps the body’s natural defenses destroy cancer cells
Chemotherapy, the use of one or more powerful drugs to fight cancer
Radiotherapy, or high-energy radiation, to target and kill cancer cells and shrink tumors
Each cancer treatment plan is developed for the individual patient and may include professionals from a number of fields, including oncology and hematology, nutrition, social work, religious ministry and others.
