Marking Your Progress
When you have cancer, there are so many questions. Once you decide and start treatment, how do you know your treatment is working? Is it time for another scan? What can your body tell you and your doctor? Are you making progress? And what about recurrence?
Substances made by cancer cells or by normal cells in response to cancer in the body called tumor markers can be used by your medical oncologist to guide your treatment and check for recurrence.
Learn more about tumor markers and how they are used at the June E. Nylen Cancer Center by reading this month’s article in Siouxland Woman Magazine.
