I have been diagnosed with throat cancer. My doctor has recommended removal of my voice box. This seems overly aggressive; do I have any other options?

Aggressive surgery used to be the recommended treatment for many cases of throat cancer. Research studies using new, powerful chemotherapy drugs and high precision radiation techniques have provided cure rates equal to aggressive surgery while avoiding removal of the voice box in the majority of patients. At Premiere Oncology, our Medical Oncologists and Radiation Oncologists work hand in hand to design a combined treatment approach tailored to your individual needs. Call today for an appointment to save your voice!

 

I’ve heard there is a new vaccine for prostate cancer called Provenge®. How do I know if I personally should get the vaccine?

Provenge is a breakthrough treatment designed to rev up the body’s own immune system to specifically target and kill prostate cancer cells. Provenge could be right for you if your prostate cancer has spread beyond the prostate, your PSA is increasing despite being on hormone blocking therapy, and you have little or no cancer related pain. Provenge is not used to treat early stage prostate cancer. Call Premiere Oncology today to see if Provenge is right for you.
