Our Services and Treatment

Radiation Oncology

Radiation therapy uses beams of targeted energy to destroy cancer cells, shrink tumors, and alleviate cancer-related symptoms.

Types of radiation therapy include external beam radiation therapy, internal radiation therapy, and systemic radiation therapy. These radiation therapy techniques vary based on how the radiation is delivered.

There are several reasons that oncologists use radiation therapy on its own or in combination with other treatments to treat cancer. If you’re receiving radiation oncology as part of your cancer treatment plan, it’s normal to have many questions about the treatment process or potential side effects that you want to ask your doctor. Our radiation oncologists are experienced in using advanced technologies, managing side effects, and creating a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Medical Oncology

Chemotherapy is a drug treatment that uses powerful chemicals to kill cancer cells in the body. This type of therapy is useful for targeting the cancer cells that multiply more quickly than healthy cells in your body.

If you have chemotherapy by infusion, oncologists deliver medication to your bloodstream through a needle in a vein from your arm or a central line. However, oncologists can administer chemotherapy through pills, injections, and skin creams, as well. Chemotherapy can be systemic, treating the entire body through the bloodstream. Or, regional chemotherapy is when chemotherapy drugs target a specific area.

You and your Alabama Cancer Care oncologist will determine your chemotherapy treatment plan. For each patient, chemotherapy treatment schedules vary. For example, oncologists determine how often you’ll receive chemotherapy treatments by elements such as your cancer type and your body’s recovery levels after each treatment. Chemotherapy treatment can continue over an extended period of time or may alternate between periods of treatment and periods of rest.

Hematology Oncology

Hematologists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of blood diseases. Some cancers, such as leukemia and lymphoma, originate in and primarily affect blood cells, bone marrow, and the lymph system. Hematology oncology uses a combination of methods, treatment options, and highly individualized treatment plans. This type of oncology addresses cancers and other diseases related to hematology.

Some standard methods doctors use for treating cancers and hematological malignancies include chemotherapy and radiation therapy, bone marrow or stem cell transplantation, blood transfusion, medication, and surgery.

Additional Treatment Options

Alabama Cancer Care also offers different treatment options for cancer patients. We run a complete infusion center that offers non-chemo infusions to aid other chronic diseases. Additionally, with the constant evolution of cancer treatments and trial drugs, the discovery of oral-targeted therapy has proven successful in some cases to treat and cure various cancer types.
