Lymphoma is a catchall term for some different cancers that start in your lymphatic system. The more common type of the disease, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, accounting for 4% of all cancers in the United States. No matter what form your lymphoma takes, Charleston Oncology has the tools and expertise necessary to help you get the best treatment available.
Myeloma is an uncommon form of cancer that involves your blood, more specifically your plasma. If you’ve been diagnosed with multiple myeloma, the key to a successful outcome is to get a team of expert hematologists and oncologists to watch over your disease, intervening when necessary.
Testicular cancer is uncommon, affecting only one out of every 250 men in the United States, with just over 9,000 cases reported each year. That said, it’s the most common cancer diagnosis in American males between the ages of 15 and 35. The good news is that this type of cancer is highly treatable, especially with the right team.
