Breast cancer nurse navigator
Breast cancer can be overwhelming. You may have questions about treatment options, schedules and insurance coverage. Our knowledgeable breast cancer nurse navigator will be there for you, offering personalized support throughout your treatment.
During or following cancer treatment, we can help you feel better physically. For example, fatigue, pain, balance issues and lymphedema are common treatment side effects. Cancer rehab is available at ProMedica Toledo Rehab in Adrian, and at 11 other locations to serve you. Learn more about our cancer rehab program.
Cancer clinical trials
A cancer clinical trial is medical research in which people participate as volunteers to test new methods of cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment.
Some cancer patients may fear that enrolling in a clinical trial means they chance receiving no cancer treatment. That’s not true. Patients in clinical trials receive either the best cancer treatment currently known for their cancer or a new, and possibly more effective, therapy.
Our expert cancer research team pays close attention to monitoring each patient’s treatment and recovery. Many treatments today are the results of past clinical trials.
Our board-certified and licensed genetic counselors provide education and testing for hereditary cancer syndromes.
