Treatment Options

Chemotherapy

A common form of cancer treatment, chemotherapy is the use of drugs to kill cancer cells. It is delivered systemically, meaning that it impacts the entire body, rather than being targeted, as radiation therapy often is. Chemotherapy will often be used as a part of an overall treatment plan, paired with radiation therapy, surgery, immunotherapy or hormone therapy to eradicate cancer cells that may have spread.

Immunotherapy

This type of treatment is used to build up a patient’s immune system, allowing their own body to better fight cancer cells. Because cancer cells start as normal cells before they mutate, your body’s immune system does not always recognize them as a problem. Immunotherapy provides support to your immune system so it can recognize and fight cancer cells, the same way it would an infection or virus.

Support Services

A cancer diagnosis is devastating and scary, often leaving families with many concerns and questions. Families may feel overwhelmed as they make decisions and schedule appointments. That is why Hattiesburg Clinic offers wrap-around services for our oncology patients. Through our partners like Forrest General Hospital, patients receive access to:

  • Patient navigation – A nurse navigator can walk patients through the process, helping them schedule appointments, find resources and access financial support. Whether a patient needs help getting to and from appointments or just getting everything scheduled, help is a quick call away.
  • Dietary services – From diagnosis to treatment, nutritious food plays an important role in fighting and recovering from cancer. A nurse dietitian can help.
  • Palliative and hospice care – If a patient chooses not to treat the cancer or if it is determined to be incurable, specialized care that honors the individual and their family’s goals is offered to improve their quality of life.
