Cancer

Cancer is a disease that can start almost anywhere in the body when abnormal cells grow out of control. As time progresses, these cells can invade other tissues. Our experts work together on your cancer treatment. Located within the Tate Cancer Center at UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center, our specialists provide comprehensive care, tailored for you.

Medical Oncology and Hematology

  • Medical oncologists specialize in diagnosing and treating cancer through therapies like chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.
  • Hematologists specialize in treating blood disorders, including hemophilia, leukemia and lymphoma.

Your treatment plan depends on the type of cancer that you have, its size and whether or not it has spread. Our team will determine if chemotherapy (treating the cancer with chemicals), hormonal therapy (treating the cancer with medications) or another option is the right choice for you.

Our medical oncologists and hematologists work closely with you and our experienced nursing staff to provide consultations, expert treatment and follow-up care.

Surgical Oncology

  • Surgical oncologists specialize in surgical treatment of cancer.

Our surgical oncologists will determine if and when you may need surgery to remove your cancer, and works closely with medical and radiation oncologists to diagnose your cancer and then figure out the best course of action.

Our surgical oncologists are trained in the latest minimally invasive techniques, including laparoscopic and robotic surgery, to maximize patient outcomes and try to prevent a cancer reoccurrence.
