Specialty Care Programs
Cancer Pain and Symptom Management
The Palliative Care Program at Huntington Hospital provides treatment for the relief of cancer symptoms such as pain and treatment-related side effects. The program is led by specially trained registered nurses who work closely with the patient’s physician to improve the patient’s comfort and quality of life during their cancer treatment.
Lymphedema Review Class
Early diagnosis and treatment for lymphedema is important to help reduce symptoms and prevent the condition from progressing. Huntington Hospital offers a patient education class to review the signs, symptoms and risk factors of lymphedema, and to provide information on managing lymphedema and the associated side effects. There is no charge to attend the class.
Over the past several years, inherited factors, or genes, have been identified that can contribute to the development of some forms of breast, ovarian, colorectal and other types of cancer.
The Huntington Hospital Cancer Center offers hereditary cancer risk assessment and genetic counseling to people who are concerned about their personal and/or family history of cancer and risk to other family members.
