If cancer is suspected it will be investigated using various diagnostic tests such as biopsies, x-rays, scans, blood tests etc. Your results will then be discussed amongst cancer specialists within the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) meeting. If there is a positive cancer diagnosis, the MDT members will devise a personalised treatment plan suited to you. The type of treatment that you will be administered will entirely depend on different factors, such as:
- Health (past and present)
- Type of cancer
- Size of the tumour
- How quickly the cancer is growing
- Whether the cancer has spread
- What stage and grade the cancer is
Below you can find out more information about the different treatments we have.
