Types of Cancer
Singing River Health System treats all types of cancer, but below are some of the cancers we regularly treat:
Head and Neck
Cancer Screening & Genetic Testing
We utilize cutting edge pathological tests such as tumor markers, genetic testing, bone marrow testing, peripheral blood testing and an assortment of biopsies in the search for diagnosis.
Imaging & Radiology
Starting with images, Singing River Health System’s team of technicians, radiologists, surgeons, pathologists, and oncologists diagnose and treat a variety of cancers. Learn more about the imaging tests we have available for cancer.
Cancer treatments are ever-changing, and at Singing River Health System’s Cancer Centers, we are on the cutting edge of these treatments. In addition to chemotherapy and radiation treatments, we employ immunotherapy and oral chemotherapy treatments that target the cancer on a cellular level.
Cancer patients with smaller, isolated tumors benefit from minimally invasive, highly effective Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) administered by the Trilogy® System Linear Accelerator with Gated RapidArc®.
HDR Brachytherapy is a safe, effective treatment for certain tumors. During the treatment, the Radiation Oncology team delivers a very high dose of radiation directly inside a tumor. This highly localized treatment avoids treating the healthy tissues that surround the tumor, leading to less side effects and better outcomes.
Our Cancer Centers have been accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer for eight consecutive years. The Commission on Cancer recognizes cancer care programs for their commitment to providing comprehensive, high-quality, and multidisciplinary patient-centered care.
Singing River’s Cancer Center is a member of the The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Health System Cancer Community Network. This network includes community cancer centers across Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, and Tennessee to promote collaboration between UAB and community physicians in order to pursue high quality patient outcomes, improve access to early cancer detection and treatment, and optimize patient satisfaction at a local level.
