Cancer Care

If you’ve been touched by cancer, you’re not alone.

 
PeaceHealth is here for you — whether you’ve recently been diagnosed or are a long-time survivor — our doctors, specialty care nurses and other professionals are ready to help you every step of the way.

Hematology and Oncology

Hematology is the branch of medicine devoted to the study of blood. Two common blood disorders treated by hematologists include:

  • anemia (prolonged state of weakness)
  • hemophilia (bleeding that won't stop)

Oncology is the study of cancer, a class of diseases that causes uncontrolled growth of cells. Some cancers are benign, which means they don't invade or hurt other areas of the body. Some cancers are malignant, which means the tumor (mass of cells) destroys or invades other areas.

While these two specialties are separate, they commonly overlap. Specialists in each frequently work together to provide integrated care. For instance, bone marrow transplants are blood related, but may be used in treating some cancers. Also, some blood tests are used to identify some forms of cancer. Your primary care provider will refer you to a hematologist or oncologist if your condition requires this specialized care.

All our providers work in our PeaceHealth Lower Columbia Cancer Center with a team of treatment and support specialists. 

The Lower Columbia Regional Cancer Center opened in 2002, thanks to our community's vision and commitment. We collaborate with larger facilities such as Oregon Health Sciences University and University of Washington, but provide many chemotherapy treatments right here in Longview.

Our center also offers an extensive Patient Resource Center with current treatment information, support groups, classes, books and other items that help patients and their families cope during this journey.
