What to Expect

Preparing to fight cancer naturally raises many questions. Cancer is complicated. Sometimes, just knowing what to expect makes a world of difference. We encourage you to ask as many questions as often as you need.

Our website has a wealth of knowledge to get you started. As you read through the information, we encourage you to write down your questions and bring them to your first appointment.

  • You may experience a wide range of emotions. Everyone deals with their diagnosis differently, and there is no “right” way to handle it.
  • Don’t be afraid to enlist family members and friends who offer their support and ask for their help.
  • Depending on your type of cancer, your first appointment may be with a surgeon, or an oncologist. All of our physicians are experts in treating your cancer, and you are their focus.
  • Before you meet with your doctors, you may want to get more information about your specific cancer type or cancer treatment options.
  • Our patients take part in some of the most promising national clinical trials for a broad range of cancers. Texas Oncology participates in many national trials. You may be able to receive new therapies before they are widely available.
  • We have a wide range of support services to help you and your support network navigate your cancer treatment.
