We have more than 700 current clinical trials for all types of cancer. You must be an MD Anderson patient before you are eligible to participate. Once you make your first appointment with us, you will be able to discuss clinical trial opportunities with your MD Anderson physician.
What are the standard treatments for my disease?
MD Anderson's standard treatment guidelines for many common cancers can be found on our website. However, these guidelines are not intended to replace a consultation with an MD Anderson physician. At MD Anderson, we know that no two people are exactly alike—and no two cancers are exactly alike, either. That's why each patient receives a treatment plan tailored to his or her particular needs. MD Anderson treats the whole person, taking into account medical history, lifestyle and other health issues.
Do you have doctors that specialize in my type of cancer?
Our faculty and staff include experts in all types of cancer, common and rare.
Where do I stay if I become a patient?
Generally, your first appointment and many of your treatments can be done on an outpatient basis. If you're traveling a long distance, check out our lodging and travel information for hotels, RV parks and other facilities in the Houston and Medical Center areas.
