Cancer Care Services
Our hospitals offer preventative care in addition to advanced diagnostic and imaging equipment, and treatment protocols that are state-of-the-art, all to help get you back to your healthy life.
Whether you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer or prostate cancer or any kind of cancer, we are here for you.
Each year, about 230,000 American women find out they have breast cancer. After skin cancer, it is the most common cancer in women. Just when you need it most, Dignity Health Southern California is here to help those with a breast cancer diagnosis.
Cancer screening tests detect cancerous and precancerous cells in the body. For your optimal wellness, at Dignity Health Southern California hospitals, we check for cancer even when there are no symptoms present to find cancer in its early, treatable stages. Generally, once symptoms begin to appear, the cancer is already in an advanced stage that’s harder to cure.
Gastrointestinal cancer, also known as GI cancer, refers to any of the cancers that affect the organs of the digestive tract.
