Providence Regional Cancer System Locations
Acupuncture is a component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which utilizes the insertion of very thin needles, heat, pressure and other treatments to certain locations (acupuncture points) on the body.
In recognition of the emotional and life challenges caused by cancer, Providence offers services to help address the needs of cancer patients and their caregivers.
Cancer Genetic Counseling and Testing
Providence provides genetic counseling and testing to both cancer patients and others concerned about their genetic health history. Genetic testing and counseling provide information and guidance to help people understand their risk for hereditary conditions, including specific cancers.
Cancer rehabilitation helps reduce the effects of the treatments and aids recovery. It can improve your mobility and strength, reduce pain and fatigue, decrease swelling, and improve the quality of your tissue.
Through clinical trials, doctors determine whether new treatments are safe and effective and work better than current treatments. Clinical trials also help us find new ways to prevent and detect cancer. And they help us improve the quality of life for people during and after treatment.
Cancer Screening and Diagnosis
Screening for cancer is important because it can help doctors find and treat several types of cancer early. Early detection is important because when cancer is found early, it may be easier to treat.
For our patients, what matters most is being able to stay close to home without compromising on comprehensive cancer care. We offer advanced treatments, a team of cancer experts and a broad range of support services – all in proximity to family, friends and the support of your community.
Chemotherapy (chemo) uses medicine to destroy cancer cells. Most chemotherapy medications are given intravenously and may include daily, weekly, or even monthly treatments. Other forms of chemotherapy could be an injection into a specific part of your body, a pill or liquid that you swallow or even a cream that is rubbed on your skin.
da Vinci Surgery
The da Vinci Surgical System provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, putting a surgeon's hands at the controls of a state-of-the-art robotic platform.

Breast Cancer Services
If you receive a breast cancer diagnosis, a team of compassionate cancer specialists will work together to give you the most effective treatment.
Colorectal Cancer Treatment
Most colon and rectal cancers develop from a single cell in the lining of the bowel. The cells multiply and develop into a non-cancerous (benign) growth, called a “polyp.” As the polyp grows, it might become cancerous, with the potential to invade through the rectal wall or spread to other parts of the body.
Non-medical interventions, such as massage therapy, music therapy, and animal-assisted activities, complement the medical and social support patients receive during treatment.
Computed tomography (CT) Scan
CT scans, also known as CAT scans, obtain multiple cross-sectional images of the body by using special X-rays and computer enhancement to create an image many times more sensitive than a simple X-ray.

Unlike hospice, palliative care is appropriate for patients in all disease stages, including those undergoing treatment for curable illnesses and people living with chronic diseases, as well as patients who are nearing the end of life and need comfort care.
Patient navigators work with patients and families to help with many different needs associated with the health care system.
Radiation therapy used high-energy radiation to destroy the cancer cells' ability to divide and multiply. It can precisely target specific tumors without damaging the surrounding tissue. Radiation oncologists are the specialized physicians who treat patients needing radiation therapy.
