Cancer

Cancer is defined as the uncontrollable growth of abnormal cells in the body. Patients suffering from cancer will exhibit cells that divide too quickly, almost in an out-of-control way; sometimes they even forget to die. Both men and women are at risk of developing cancer and the number of different types is vast. At St. Joseph Health in Sonoma County we are here to answer questions for men about prostate cancer as well as inform women about what can be done to reduce their risk of breast cancer. Certain factors help predict invasive breast cancer, and we can inform you of what these are so you can be on the lookout at all times.

Our treatment team is dedicated to providing you with the best medical services available when you are suffering from a debilitating form of cancer. While there are many causes of cancer, many more remain unknown and until all of the potential causes of this deadly disease are identified and successfully prevented against, we will be here to help those who currently suffer. For more information about cancer, you can read the articles listed on the left of your screen. There you will find information about prostate cancer screening, ovarian cancer, and much more.
