Cancer Care – Keck Medicine of USC

Our USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center oncology experts work together as a team to deliver patient-centered cancer care. Our renowned doctors and specialists use the latest cancer detection, prevention and treatment options to help you get the care you need each step of your cancer journey.

As an original National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated cancer center, we’re a well-established leader in cancer research. This means we’ll always be in front of the next big thing in oncology care. Through our research, we bring you the most advanced therapies available and aim to make cancer a disease of the past.

Yearly Exams

We recommend yearly breast mammograms beginning at age 40, and colonoscopies every 10 years beginning at age 50.

The physicians of the USC Oncology are dedicated to providing comprehensive care and advancing research in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Our physicians provide innovative patient care at the USC/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital, one of only 39 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the country. ur physicians practice in many locations across Southern California, including the San Gabriel Valley and Orange County.

Comprehensive Cancer Care

The physicians of USC Oncology work closely with a wide range of medical professionals in cancer treatment and research, including medical, radiation, and surgical oncologists, epidemiologists, pathologists, and social workers. They also work closely with national cancer cooperative research groups. This collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to cancer treatment allows our physicians to employ a variety of resources in designing the therapy that is uniquely best for each patient. Our oncologists also partner frequently with referring community physicians, providing consultations to facilitate community patient care.

USC oncologists are particularly expert in planning overall therapeutic strategies for treating cancers of the genitourinary system (bladder, prostate, kidney, and testis), female reproductive system, breast, gastrointestinal tract, and lung as well as melanomas  and central nervous system (including brain) cancer.  Our strong research focus affords patients many treatment options that are not available elsewhere. Patients benefit from standard therapies, new anti-cancer agents, and clinical trials.
