Genetic Risk Assessment
Learning how genetics play a role in cancer can help patients understand their inherited risk. Through genetic risk assessment, Arizona Oncology provides the information patients need about prevention and treatment options.
It's important for patients to have a record of their treatment and become informed about the long term and late effects of the therapies they received. A treatment summary and survivorship care plan gives patients details of the treatment they received since their diagnosis, as well as provide information about some of the long term and late effects of treatment. The program will help patients recognize problems early and offer suggestions for healthy behaviors during and after cancer treatment.
Our participation in nationwide clinical trials through US Oncology allows access to novel therapies not available elsewhere. This allows you to participate in the research that develops new treatments, making strides to ensure that tomorrows care will be even better than today's.
