Our team understands that cancer is a scary diagnosis. In this graphic, learn more about the patient journey for those who choose Brookwood Baptist Medical Center for care. We recognize no two cancers are alike, but this is a general overview for patients.
Diagnostic Imaging - Patient presents to a local diagnostic center for testing on the suspected area.
Diagnosis - The patient then receives a call back to either receive their results over the phone or for an in-person consultation.
Radiation – This form of therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses beams of intense energy to kill cancer cells.
Surgery – Cancer surgery removes the tumor and nearby tissue during an operation.
Chemotherapy – This form of therapy is a type of cancer treatment that uses one or more anti-cancer drugs as part of a standardized chemotherapy regimen.
