Tanner Radiation Oncology 

With a unique, integrated approach to cancer care.

Tanner Radiation Oncology

The right combination of treatments for the best possible outcome is the goal of Tanner Radiation Oncology.

Tanner Radiation Oncology works with specialists, healthcare professionals and the treatment team at Tanner’s Roy Richards, Sr. Cancer Center to treat the whole patient — not just the cancer.

Part of an integrated approach to cancer care

Radiation therapy, or radiotherapy, is often a key element to treating cancer.

Radiation is used to kill cancer cells by preventing them from multiplying. Radiation destroys the cells’ DNA, helping to cure or control cancer, or alleviating some of the symptoms associated with cancer.

Radiation may be used alone or with other types of treatment, such as surgery or chemotherapy — the use of anticancer drugs to treat cancerous cells — as well as other treatments.

As part of Tanner Medical Group, Tanner Radiation Oncology provides access to the full continuum of care available through Tanner Cancer Care and Tanner’s Roy Richards, Sr. Cancer Center.

Being Black Raises Your Risk for Some Cancers
Being Black Raises Your Risk for Some Cancers

Not only does different cancers affect people differently, but sometimes your race raises your risk of developing cancer or your likelihood of successful treatment. Disparities in cancer rates among different racial and ethnic groups can be related to socioeconomic status, access to healthcare, systemic barriers and cultural factors. To address these disparities, we must all raise awareness, promote early detection and screenings, improve access to quality care and address the social determinants of health that contribute to worse patient outcomes.
