Types of GI Cancer We Treat
Cancer can occur in any of the organs that aid your digestion (how you process foods, get nutrients and eliminate waste). The experts at Rogel Cancer Center diagnose and treat all GI cancer types in our multidisciplinary clinics. We treat:
Colorectal cancer happens when cells in the colon (part of the large intestine) grow in ways they shouldn’t. Cancerous cell growth can also occur in the rectum (the end of the large intestine near the anus). Our colorectal cancer experts diagnose and treat anal cancer, colon cancer and rectal cancer. Learn more about how we treat colorectal cancers.
In liver cancer, tumors grow in the liver, the organ that filters blood and helps your body use nutrients. Liver cancers can begin in the liver (primary liver cancer) or spread from another part of your body (metastatic liver cancer). We specialize in diagnosing and treating all types of liver cancer, bile duct cancer and gallbladder cancer. Learn more about how we diagnose and treat liver cancers.
The pancreas is a gland that makes enzymes (digestive juices) and hormones that regulate blood sugar in your body. When cells in this gland grow in ways that aren’t typical, pancreatic cancer can form. Experts at the Rogel Cancer Center offer advanced treatment options for pancreatic cancer.
Your stomach is the flexible organ where your body digests food. Stomach (gastric) cancer begins when cells in this organ grow in unusual ways. Our GI cancer specialists treat these cancers with the newest and most effective evidence-based treatments. Learn more about how we diagnose and treat stomach cancer.
