Cancer experts agree that getting the
correct diagnosis of your cancer is key to a successful outcome. Where you go first does matter™, and Holden
Comprehensive Cancer Center offers an impressive array of diagnostic tools
and treatment methods, including some that are only available through an
academic medical center.
Although cancer is one name, it is a
complex disease with hundreds of types. At Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center
we are on the leading edge of diagnosing and treating cancer. It is one reason
why our patient survival rates are better than the national average and why we
have received many national honors.
As an institution, we believe that
research makes a difference in medicine. Nearly one in ten patients cared for
at Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center are part of a clinical trial that
includes treatment for their disease.
