Benefits of Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Cancer

Early diagnosis and treatment of cancer can lead to better outcomes. Dr. Anuradha Kunthur, Hematology/Oncology, describes some symptoms that may indicate there is a problem and what to do.

Symptoms like weight loss, loss of appetite, fever or night sweats. It is very important to seek attention if you develop any of these symptoms. It is important that you see your primary care physician and get a routine physical yearly or twice a year.

Our cancer center is located, conveniently in the same building as the Little Rock Diagnostic Clinic so we have access to different primary care physicians, different specialists. We do have the state of the art diagnostic center there so that the patient doesn’t have to go far away to get tests done.
