Cancer Center of South Florida
 
Cancer Center of South FloridaThe Cancer Center of South Florida provides personalized patient care with state-of-the-art medical treatments. Our devoted team of former Harvard Medical School faculty formed the Center to provide South Florida patients access to cutting-edge clinical trials and therapies. Our doctors, oncology nurses, and pharmacy department spend the time needed with each patient to best understand their individual condition. We then explain the array of medical options available and with the patient, select the most effective treatment plan. Our warm and compassionate atmosphere offers unparalleled level of care and support for patients and their loved ones. Our Lake Worth office is located just north of JFK Medical Center on Congress Avenue and our Palm Beach Gardens office is located just south of PGA Blvd on Prosperity Farms Road.
 
   
 

Notables & Events


  • March is ColoRectal Cancer awareness month.

  • Cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer. Cancer that begins in the rectum is called rectal cancer. Cancer that starts in either of these organs may also be called colorectal cancer. In the United States, colorectal cancer is the fourth most common cancer in men, after skin, prostate and lung cancer. It is also the fourth most common cancer in women, after skin, breast and lung cancer.
  • Screening tests help your doctor find polyps or cancer before you have symptoms. Finding and removing polyps may prevent colorectal cancer. No one knows the exact causes of colorectal cancer. But research has shown that people with certain risk factors are more likely than others to develop colorectal cancer.
  • Some of those risk factors include: age over 50, colorectal polyps, family history of colorectal cancer, genetic alterations, personal history of cancer, ulcerative colitis or Cohn's disease, diet, and cigarette smoking. If you have any of these risk factors, please talk with your physician as early screening is key to prevention and treatment.
