Medical Oncology and Hematology

At Big Horn Basin Regional Cancer Center, our team is committed to working with you to determine which therapy or combination of therapies will work best to meet your specific needs. Our board-certified hematologist and oncologist specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of blood diseases and cancers.

Our experienced staff individualizes your treatment plan to ensure that you are receiving the highest quality care during your treatments, utilizing the most current cancer treatment methods.

Three of the most common treatment methods include:

Chemotherapy
Many people are familiar with the term chemotherapy, which most often refers to the administration of a combination of drugs that destroy cancer cells. For some patients, chemotherapy may cure cancer; for others, it may simply keep cancer from spreading further. It can be used in combination with other treatments, such as radiation.

Hormone Therapy
Hormones are powerful, naturally occurring chemicals that are important for the function of our physiological processes – such as metabolism. In some people, however, they actually spur cancer growth. If hormones are found to be the cause of tumor growth, your oncologist may administer a drug to slow the hormone and thereby prohibit further growth.

Targeted Cell Therapy & Immunotherapy
Using drugs or other substances, targeted cancer therapy does what its name suggests: focus specifically on the molecules that cause or increase cancer growth in cells. By targeting these molecules, the division of cells can no longer continue. In addition, some targeted therapies encourage the patient’s own immune system to recognize and destroy cancer cells. Most of these therapies have less side-effects than the tradition chemotherapy.
