Brain Cancer – Treatment Options

Cancer Treatment Centers in Phoenix, Scottsdale, & Glendale

 

Cancer is among the most challenging experiences one can face in life, and few cancerous conditions are as scary as brain cancer – but no matter what you’re up against, the cancer treatment experts at Palo Verde Cancer Specialists can help. We operate six state-of-the-art cancer treatment centers throughout the greater Phoenix, AZ area, and we’re proud to provide a wide range of treatment options for brain cancer.

 

Radiation Therapy Brain Cancer Treatment

 

Radiation therapy can be an effective, convenient nonsurgical solution for patients fighting brain cancer, and our cancer centers all specialize in advanced radiation therapy. This form of treatment requires no incisions or surgery, using advanced medical technology to deliver precision, high-dose radiation through the skull, directly to the site of the tumor. Our radiation therapy treatments include:

 

  • CyberKnife: Our flagship treatment, the CyberKnife system combines powerful technology to deliver a convenient cancer treatment while protecting nearby tissue.
  • TomoTherapy: This system uses a circular delivery device to effortlessly target pinpoint radiation anywhere in the body, providing a convenient and effective solution for many forms of cancer.
  • TrueBeam: Another option for radiation therapy, TrueBeam combines powerful radiation delivery with advanced motion tracking to create an effective treatment for many forms of cancer.

 

Other Brain Cancer Treatment Options

 

While we specialize in radiation therapy, we are a full service cancer center and can offer a number of other options as well. Some of our other treatment options for brain cancer include:

 

  • Chemotherapy: A common treatment for many cancers, this uses specialized drugs that target fast-growing cells in the body. Chemotherapy is often effective when cancer has spread throughout the body and can’t be eliminated by targeting a single tumor.
  • Targeted Therapy: This is similar to chemotherapy, but uses new classes of specialized cancer-fighting drugs that often produce fewer side effects.
  • Immunotherapy: In this treatment, we use pharmaceutical drugs to stimulate the immune system to attack the cancer cells on its own, providing an effective cancer treatment that may have fewer side effects.
  • Clinical Trials: Some patients may be eligible to participate in clinical trials, which can give you access to newer, experimental treatments. Talk with your cancer doctor to find out if there are any clinical trials available that may be right for you.
