UPMC CancerCenter. Centered on cancer. Focused on you.
There’s no question — a cancer diagnosis can be frightening. And dealing with the psychological aspects of the diagnosis are just as important as treating the cancer itself.
After a cancer diagnosis, you can continue living life to the fullest. UMPC CancerCenter can help you on your journey. It covers all bases: Offering patients the latest advances in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, UPMC CancerCenter uses integrative oncology to help cancer patients: modalities that include yoga, meditation, therapeutic massage, and more.
