For many patients, Botsford oncology services begin through you and your physician as they identify abnormal cells or tissue. From this point, Botsford’s personal care in a smaller setting and strong diagnostic expertise will guide you through the treatment best suited for your condition.

What is Cancer?

What is Cancer

Cancer is a general term for the abnormal growth of cells.  A cancer cell has an abnormal chromosome from either a genetic change or from some sort of damage or injury.  This abnormal cell starts sending the body the wrong message, and the cell begins to grow rapidly to form a lump or mass that is called a tumor.

Removing and examining some of the abnormal cell tissue from the tumor (a biopsy) will determine if the tumor is cancerous (malignant) or non-cancerous (non-malignant). If the cells are malignant and the diagnosis of cancer is made, your doctor will discuss the best way to treat your particular situation.
