brain & spine cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 22,910 malignant (cancerous) tumors of the brain or spinal cord are diagnosed annually. Brain tumors are masses of abnormal cells that grow out of control. Although brain tumors rarely spread to other parts of the body, they may spread through the brain tissue.

colorectal cancer

Colon cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the United States. Colon cancer is found in the large intestine (colon)—the lower part of your digestive system. Rectal cancer is cancer of the last several inches of the colon. Together, they're often referred to as colorectal cancers.

gynecological cancer

Each gynecologic cancer is unique, with different signs, symptoms, risk factors and prevention strategies. Every year, more than 80,000 women in the U.S. are told they have a gynecologic cancer, and more than 25,000 women die from the disease.

head & neck cancer

Good Samaritan’s highly trained otolaryngologists (ear, nose and throat physicians) diagnose and treat cancers that are known collectively as head and neck cancers. These tumors usually begin in the squamous cells, cells that line the surfaces inside the mouth, the nose and the throat.

lung cancer

Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. These abnormal cells do not carry out the functions of normal cells and do not develop into healthy lung tissue.

PROSTATE cancer

Prostate cancer forms in the tissues of the prostate. Except for skin cancer, cancer of the prostate is the most common malignancy among American men. In most men with prostate cancer, the disease grows very slowly. The majority of men with low-grade, early prostate cancer...

skin cancer

More than two million new cases of skin cancer are reported in the United States annually. Skin cancer is the abnormal growth of skin cells, usually in older people or those with weakened immune systems and on parts of the body that are generally exposed to the sun.
