Cancer prevention is always preferable to cancer treatment. Cancer screening guidelines help explain what screenings are needed by whom and at what age. They also explain the types of screenings used to detect for the most common types of cancer.

Listen to the podcast, Cancer 101to hear Erin Pike, RN, OCN explain what cancer is, how  it is diagnosed, common treatments and what care providers mean when they talk about the “stages” of cancer.

Listen to Dr. Nabin Khanal discuss recent advancements in cancer treatment. Dr. Khanal talks about Immunotherapy, which frees the patient’s own immune system to combat cancer. He also discusses Personalized Cancer Therapy, which uses genetic mapping to identify mutations so doctors can develop specific treatment plans to target them. Dr. Khanal is using both of these cutting edge treatments at Rush Memorial Hospital’s Sheehan Cancer Center.
