If you are facing a possible or certain cancer diagnosis, you and your family want to find the best care as soon as possible. What you do first can make a difference, but with most cancers, you have time to explore and weigh your options.
One thing to remember is that there is no generic cancer. Each type of cancer differs, and even if tumors look the same under a microscope, each tumor has different features at the level of the tumor DNA that may make a difference in the best treatment approach. Vanderbilt-Ingram was among the first in the country to offer "precision medicine" (also called genomic medicine) to tailor treatment decisions for its patients.
In addition, each person and family is unique, with different situations, preferences and goals. This makes it all the more valuable to receive your cancer diagnosis, treatment planning and care from a center that offers both breadth and depth of expertise to meet your unique needs and desires for your cancer journey.
Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center offers many specialty programs and services that combine the latest in expertise and technology, a collaborative team approach and compassionate care and support -- all with the patient and family as the most important members of the team.
