Symptoms and Side Effects

Coping with the symptoms of cancer and side effects of its treatment

We understand that treatment issues go hand-in-hand with quality of life issues and that the most successful treatments are those that have the least impact on everyday living. Helping our patients maintain an acceptable quality of life and assisting them in continuing their familiar daily activities are the primary goals at the Rogel Cancer Center.

Symptom Management & Supportive Care Program

Our goal is to help our patients maintain independence and increase comfort by managing the symptoms of cancer and side effects of its treatment. The program is designed to assist patients at any stage in their cancer treatment.
