Conditions we treat include:

Cancer treatments and services

At Methodist Hospital Northeast, we provide comprehensive cancer care from diagnosis and treatment through recovery and survivorship. Your care team is made up of surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, oncology-certified nurses, nurse navigator, dietitians, caseworkers and chaplains — all working closely together to ensure you get the best possible care.

Your treatment plan is personalized just for you and your specific cancer. Treatments that may be part of your care include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Hormonal therapy
  • Immunotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Surgery, including robotic and minimally invasive procedures, when appropriate
  • Targeted therapy

We also offer several important tools for early detection, including breast, colorectal and lung cancer screenings. Early cancer detection and treatment often helps lead to better outcomes.

Breast cancer services

Your doctor can help you determine the breast cancer screening regimen that’s right for you. At Methodist Hospital Northeast, we offer 3D mammograms (breast tomosynthesis), which may:

  • Be better at finding breast cancer early than standard mammograms
  • Be the best type of mammogram for dense breasts
  • Help reduce the need for follow-up imaging

If tests reveal something suspicious and a biopsy confirms cancer, we offer all types of breast cancer treatments, including multiple breast surgery options, such as lumpectomy, mastectomy and nipple-sparring mastectomy. We also offer combined breast surgery and reconstruction.

Our team provides the guidance and support you need to find the type that’s best for your unique circumstances.

Wondering where to get a mammogram? We can help you find a location near you. Call us today at (210) 617-9000.

Breast cancer nurse navigator

Methodist Healthcare works together with Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, to provide experienced, compassionate nurse navigators to support patients as they go through the many stages of living with cancer. Our breast cancer nurse navigator is your medical system advocate and will help you and your family understand each part of the cancer journey while compassionately supporting your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. The cancer nurse navigator will provide assistance with:

  • Understanding diagnosis and available treatment options
  • Understanding what resources are available and how to access them
  • Overcoming barriers and coordinating care with the entire healthcare team
  • Connecting patients with community resources
  • Providing educational materials
  • Improving communication between the healthcare team and participating in multidisciplinary cancer conferences to assure personalized cancer treatment for each patient

Colorectal cancer services

Colorectal cancer screening offered at Methodist Hospital Northeast may find cancer of the colon or rectum early, when treatment is most likely to be successful. Screening may even help prevent the disease. Most colorectal cancers begin as colorectal polyps. If we find and remove the polyps, we may stop cancer from developing.

Colorectal cancer screening tests we offer include:

  • Colonoscopy
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Stool tests
  • Virtual colonoscopy

Talk with your doctor to learn which test is best for you and when to begin screening. If cancer is diagnosed, we’re here to help with your cancer fight.

Lung cancer services

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends that certain smokers (and former smokers) undergo yearly lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (CT). Those who should be tested include adults between the ages of 50 and 80 who have a 20 pack-year smoking history and currently smoke and those who have quit smoking within the past 15 years. (A 20 pack-year history means you smoke a pack a day for 20 years, or two packs a day for 10 years, etc.)

Methodist Hospital Northeast offers a full range of lung cancer treatments.
