New cancer service at Oaks
Monday 28 November 2016
One of our Consultant Clinical Oncologists, Dr Mukesh, has recently introduced a new specialist diagnosis service for patients with suspected cancer without an obvious primary.
The incidence of cancer is increasing with nearly one in three people being diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Most patients have an obvious site of primary cancer but sometimes cancer is suspected or found in the body but the place where the cancer began is not known and delays in diagnostic investigations and initiating anti-cancer therapy can have a detrimental effect on these patients’ survival outcome.
You will be seen within 3-5 working days.
We can carry out further investigations, if required, on the same day/appointment.
Your diagnostic results will be available within 3-5 days.
We have access to a team of multi-disciplinary hospital experts depending upon the diagnosis.
We can put you on a treatment pathway immediately.
You can access this service using your health insurance or paying for yourself.
