Focus on Cancer Care
Cancer cells misbehave by dividing and traveling to places they aren't supposed to go. A cell's DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) tells it what to do: a standard DNA sequence is well ordered and gives proper instructions. But when DNA is damaged, it can send out wrong information.
As one of only 40 National Cancer Institute (NCI) comprehensive cancer centers nationwide, we are among the most advanced cancer treatment and research centers in the country. We diagnose and treat all types of cancer, and offer over 150 clinical trials for specific tumor types.
At Norris Cotton Cancer Center our teams of cancer professionals provide the best care possible within a compassionate environment. Patient-centered care is our mission, and our promise.
