Cancers We Treat

We treat virtually all cancers in adults, including:


Multispecialty Approach. Extensive Cancer Services.

At Parkland Medical Center, our multispecialty approach to cancer care means you’ll work with a team of medical professionals from multiple disciplines who know the most about your specific situation. You benefit from our broad range of services and treatments, especially our minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical techniques that allow small incisions and lead to less blood loss, quicker recovery and faster return to daily activities, work and family.

Lymphedema Support

Edema means swelling. When lymph nodes are removed or damaged during cancer treatment, you may be at risk for fluid retention and swelling in your arms, legs and other parts of the body related to nearby lymph nodes—a condition known as lymphedema. You can improve your cancer recovery when you learn more about your potential for lymphedema and how to treat swelling if it occurs.
