It's time to fight cancer with early detection
This year about 553,200 Americans are expected to die of cancer, according to the American Cancer Society. That's more than 1,500 people a day.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S, according to the cancer society, exceeded only by heart disease.
Nearly 5 million lives have been lost to cancer since 1990.
Recent advancements and treatments are helping to improve the survival rates, especially when the cancer is detected early.
The National Cancer Institute estimates that 8.4 million Americans alive today have a history of cancer. Some of these individuals can be considered cured, while others are undergoing treatment.
At the Southeast Cancer Center, our goal is to provide comprehensive and advanced treatment delivered by a caring and compassionate staff.
