Cancer is not just a single disease. In fact, there are many types of cancer. It can start in the bones, breast, colon, or even in the blood. Cancers are alike in many ways, but other ways, like how they grow and respond to treatment, they can be very different from one another.
To help you continue to live your very best life, Beacon’s cancer experts will work with you and your family to provide the best cancer care available. From day one, we’ll connect you with a highly specialized, integrated network for your screening, diagnosis and treatment needs
Cancer screenings are tests that are performed when you’re not experiencing symptoms. They’re an effective way to catch cancer in its earliest stages. Not all cancers have screening tests, and some are only recommended if you’re at high risk for a certain type of cancer.
Beacon Cancer Care takes a comprehensive approach to treating cancer, working with you to deliver the highest quality care, from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. When you’re ready, call us at 574.647.8300.
If diagnosed with cancer, your team will review all of your test results with you and work collaboratively to develop a treatment plan that is best for you. Your team may consist of a surgeon, medical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist, depending on the specific details of your cancer. During your consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your questions and concerns and talk about your plan of care with your oncologist. Your Beacon provider can also arrange for a second opinion through the Mayo Clinic at no charge.
If you have an increased risk for cancer, our genetic counselor can advise you about how to protect your health.
We understand that cancer affects more than just your body. That’s why we also offer educational resources and support groups to help you and your family during your cancer journey.
