​​​​​​​​​Preventing and Treating All Types of Cancer and Blood Disorders 

All cancers begin in your cells -- the body's basic unit of life. Your body is made up of many types of cells. These cells grow and divide in a controlled way to produce more cells as they are needed to keep the body healthy. When cells become old or damaged, they die and are replaced with new cells. However, sometimes this orderly process goes wrong. The genetic material (DNA) of a cell can become damaged or changed, producing mutations that affect normal cell growth and division. When this happens, cells do not die when they should and new cells form when the body does not need them. The extra cells may form a mass of tissue called a tumor.  Not all tumors are cancerous; tumors can be benign or malignant. Malignant tumors are cancerous.  


Blood disorders, on the other hand, affect one or more parts of the blood and prevent blood from doing its job. Blood is a living tissue made up of liquids and solids. The liquid part is called plasma. Blood disorders most commonly affects the solid part of your blood -- red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Cancers and blood disorders are treated based on each individual as well as the cancer's stage and primary starting place in the body. Learn more about the particular types as well as how our medical team can help to prevent, screen and treat your cancer or blood disorder.
