Cancer

Preventing cancer is everyone’s first priority and is the best thing you can do to protect yourself. But, early detection is the next best thing. The earlier we find your cancer, the earlier we treat your cancer, the faster you have your cancer experience behind you.

At Banner Health, our oncologists, radiologists, cancer surgeons, specially trained nurses and patient navigators use the latest cancer diagnostic tests and screenings. Then, we work together with you to find the right treatment plan for your unique condition. Beating your cancer is our top priority.

In 2011, Banner Health and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, ranked #1 in cancer care by U.S. News and World Report’s America’s Best Hospitals survey, opened Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center in Gilbert, Arizona.
