Treatments

Cancer is different for each patient, so our approach to treating cancer varies for each person.

At Virginia Cancer Specialists, our clinical team evaluates the latest advances and proven treatments to identify a plan that meets your individual needs. In making recommendations about your treatment, we will consider many factors, including your medical history, current health, and risks and benefits of various options. When discussing your treatment options, we also want you to know our goals and expected results, as well as what can be expected during the treatment process.

There are four major types of treatment for cancer: biologic/targeted therapies, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery. Each of these can be used alone or in combination.

At Virginia Cancer Specialists, we offer Chemotherapy 101 classes to help educate you on preparing for your treatment, coping with treatment and what to expect after treatment.  For details on the next class, please see our Calendar.
