A diagnosis of cancer can be a difficult, frightening and overwhelming time. That’s why the team of oncology specialists at the nationally-recognized Riverside Shore Cancer Center (RSCC) offers a very personalized approach to care that takes into account not only your medical needs, but also the concerns and emotional changes you’re experiencing along with the many questions you’re bound to have.
As an award-winning and community-based cancer care facility, RSCC offers medical oncology (treating cancer with chemotherapy and other cancer-fighting drugs, hormones and pain reduction medications) as well as radiation oncology (using beams of radiation to destroy or damage cancer cells). Along with cancer surgery, these treatments may be used individually or in combination.
