Texas Health offers many advanced treatment options, along with care strategies selected for each breast cancer patient and implemented by multidisciplinary teams of care providers led by physicians on the medical staff.

    Diagnosis and treatment options include:

  • Bone Cancer

    From diagnosis to treatment, specialists on the medical staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas work with physical therapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, psychiatrists on the medical staff and others to provide the best possible care for orthopedic oncology and complex reconstruction.

    Bone Cancers

    Tumors within the bone destroy normal bone tissue and most often begin as cancer that has spread from another organ, such as the breasts, lung or prostate. Often, simple observation with physical exams or X-rays is all that is necessary for benign conditions, while more complex benign and malignant tumors usually require surgical removal.

    Diagnosing Bone Cancer

    Bone cancer can be quickly and effectively diagnosed. Diagnostic tests may include X-rays, blood tests, bone scan, computed tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scan, biopsy and angiogram. Once a diagnosis is made, orthopedic oncology specialists on the medical staff can perform advanced surgeries, as well as make recommendations about other treatments.

  • Colorectal (Colon or Rectal) Cancer

    Texas Health is dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of colon cancer. Excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer remains the third most common cancer in the United States. According to research supported by the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this type of cancer starts as a small growth, called a polyp, long before symptoms appear. Screening tests can find polyps that can be removed before they turn into cancer.

    Diagnosis and Treatment

    It is important to find colorectal cancer early when the chance of survival is good, according to the National Cancer Institute. Physicians on the medical staff of a Texas Health hospital use advanced diagnostic and therapeutic procedures when diagnosing and treating colon cancer, which can include:

    • Colonoscopy
    • Anal nanometry/Pap smear
    • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
    • CT scan
    • Barium enema
    • Radiation and chemotherapy
    • Open and laparoscopic surgery
  • Lung Cancer

    According to the American Cancer Society, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States with 160,000 deaths annually. More women die of lung cancer than breast cancer and more men die of this disease than prostate cancer.

    Texas Health offers comprehensive lung cancer screening programs across North Texas. These programs aim to identify patients who are at an increased risk for lung cancer and are led by a multispecialty team of physicians, including oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, thoracic surgeons, pathologists and pulmonologists.

    Timely diagnosis is important in diagnosing lung cancer. Pulmonologists and thoracic surgeons on the medical staff of a Texas Health hospital use advanced technology to diagnose and treat lung cancer.
