In treating cancer, one of our first priorities is to stop cancerous cells from spreading. Cancer cells are cells that have mutated and no longer behave normally and often divide and grow at an accelerated rate. Treatments may involve surgery to remove cancer cells, radiation therapy to destroy cells, medical oncology to stop the cells from dividing or growing, or a number of other approaches to help your body better heal itself and protect against illness.
At Intermountain Cancer Centers, our world-class physicians and caregivers apply a variety of advanced methods and therapies to reduce and remove cancer cells. Care plans involve individualized treatments based on your cancer type, stage, and location of the cancer, and other considerations.
