Cancer Treatment Options

Facts about Cancer


The term cancer refers to a complex group of diseases in which cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. No matter the type, cancer develops because abnormal cells, called "cancer cells," begin to multiply and spread out of control. There are many known causes of cancer, including heredity, lifestyle factors (such as tobacco use), diet, physical activity, and many more.

There are several standard treatment options for cancer and many specialized options as well.  They are often used in combination with each other to help patients receive maximum benefits. In addition, Clinical Trials may be available to treat your cancer. Integrative Therapies is part of our program to help you deal with the treatment and its side effects.

Mercy has many cancer treatment services available for our patients in the Toledo area and surrounding communities.
