Types of Cancer Treated

Cancer can develop in any part of the body, and one of the biggest dangers of the disease is that it can spread from its origin point to the rest of the body—this is referred to as metastasized cancer. The best time to fight cancer is when it is contained in one area, which is why physicians will often extensively study various types of cancer so they can effectively treat and, if possible, remove it as soon as possible.

Jupiter Medical Center’s oncology team is capable of treating a wide variety of cancers, but have focused most of their attention on some of the more common cancers that affect people in the local area:

  • Breast cancer The most prevalent form of cancer found in women in the U.S., breast cancer is best treated when found early. Be sure to perform regular self-exams and schedule regular checkups with your gynecologist.
  • Gastrointestinal CancerAt Jupiter Medical Center, we’ve assembled a leading team of experts and the most advanced technology and treatment options for the diagnosis, treatment and management of gastrointestinal issues.
  • Genitourinary cancer– These are cancers that affect the prostate, testicular region, kidney, bladder, and urinary tract. Our oncologists utilize state-of-the-art surgical and non-surgical treatment procedures to help patients manage the painful symptoms, improve their quality of life, and remove the cancer cells completely, if possible.
  • Gynecological cancerGynecological cancers are not uncommon in women. While it is never easy to learn you are diagnosed with cancer, regular gynecological visits help to detect the warning signs early, enabling you to begin an aggressive treatment plan as quickly as possible.
  • Lung cancerLung cancer mortality statistics have decreased over the years as the dangers of smoking have become more apparent, but it still remains a common form of cancer in the U.S. Our treatment strategy is designed for early detection and a continuous care plan that addresses the patient’s long-term care needs.
  • Skin cancer This is the most common form of cancer and one of the easiest to treat, but like any cancer, it can spread to other parts of the body and become a much more serious problem. Be sure to check your body regularly for any strange blemishes or discolorations. If you have not performed a self-exam in a while, you may want to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to get a layout of all the non-cancerous marks that are already on your skin.
