Austin Cancer Center is a premier oncology practice providing cutting-edge oncology treatments in Central Texas.  We incorporate a comprehensive approach to our treatment of cancer, incorporating not just treating the disease but also providing symptom relief, emotional and spiritual support, and an overall atmosphere of care for our patients.

Whether cancer appears in the skin, lungs, prostate, colon and rectum, head and neck, or gastrointestinal tract, we have a way of fighting it. We also treat breast, colon, and lymphoma disease. Our experienced and capable oncologists design treatments in collaboration with other specialists on the treatment team, keeping the patient at the core of our efforts. We strive to provide a progressive, advancing, and patient-centered treatment experience which supports the individual as well as their caregivers and family.

Fight cancer by stunting its growth.

Chemotherapy can be used to treat many types of cancer, as it impairs cancer cells’ ability to divide into more cells; however, this can affect other needed, dividing cells in the body.

Our highly trained medical oncologists work collaboratively with all of your medical caregivers to ensure you are thoroughly monitored throughout treatment. We will assess your condition, plan whether to use chemotherapy alone or in combination with other treatments, and manage your side effects.
