Beginning Your Journey

With a diagnosis of cancer, your life has changed. With help from the ProMedica Cancer Institute, you can understand the challenges and how to prepare yourself to be victorious.

We’ve compiled resources that take you through treatment options, as well as the life changes and expectations that come with drug treatment. In this section, you also learn more about clinical trials: how they are structured, what the benefit is and questions to ask your physicians to decide whether a trial is right for you.

Just as proper nutrition can increase your chances of not getting cancer, it’s important to know how and what to eat to keep you strong during cancer treatments. And since cancer doesn’t discriminate, we’ve created resource sections for men, women and children. In each, you’ll find overviews and additional links to services that cater specifically to your needs.

Treatment Options

If you have received a diagnosis of cancer, you already understand that such a complex disease requires a course of skilled treatment. Your physician may recommend more than one type of treatment in order to target the cancer as effectively as possible. The ProMedica Cancer Institute offers multiple treatment options to improve outcomes and enhance your comfort throughout your cancer journey.

Clinical Trials

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, you are likely overwhelmed with decisions to make about your treatment. What if your doctor offers you a choice: try a conventional therapy which might help, or participate in a trial for a new drug or treatment that might prove more effective. What do you do?
