At Terrebonne General Health System, we partner with Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center to detect cancer in its earliest stages so that we can begin cancer treatment immediately. There are many types of cancer, but they share similar characteristics. Cancer begins with the abnormal cells developing and dividing quickly and uncontrollably while invading and destroying surrounding healthy tissues. Cancer is a feared diagnosis, but thanks to improvements in cancer detection from routine screenings, cancer is more treatable than in past decades.
