Why Providence?

Providence Cancer Center brings patients and families comprehensive cancer services, including diagnostic imaging, state-of-the-art treatments, nationally-renowned research, and compassionate counseling and support. The cancer center’s doctors, nurses, researchers, patient advocates, and other caregivers work together to treat cancer aggressively and to ensure that no person has to face the challenge of a cancer diagnosis alone.

At Providence Liver Cancer Clinic, our highly-specialized, experienced team includes surgeons, interventional radiologists, gastroenterologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and a nurse practitioner. This team meets every week to review individual patients’ cases and to determine the best approaches to treatment and care. Providence surgeons and interventional radiologists specialize in providing minimally-invasive treatments. These treatments typically result in shorter hospital stays, less postoperative pain and scarring, and faster recovery.

Ask an expert: Can liver cancer run in the family?

Your family’s genes play only a minor role, if any, in your risk of liver cancer. However, your family history may increase your risk in other ways.
