Age Appropriate, Comprehensive Cancer Care
The Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer and Survivorship Program at Ochsner provides treatment for patients ages 15 - 39 with most types of cancer. Researchers are discovering that many of the cancers that occur in this age group are biologically different than those seen at other ages. In addition, these patients have different medical, psychological and social needs than younger and older patients, and this program is designed to address these needs.
We treat patients who are:
- Newly diagnosed
- Currently in treatment
- Cancer survivors (other than breast cancer)
