Treatment options

Personalized treatment
At the Netherlands Cancer Institute, you receive the type of treatment that best suits you and your personal situation. Your exact treatment options will depend on the tumor type and stage, the presence of metastases, tumor growth, and your age and overall health physical condition. Of course, your personal preferences are another important factor in finding the best treatment for you. We will take the time to discuss your options and preferences with you, so you can make an informed decision about which treatment you are the most comfortable with.
