Main Hospital (ground floor, North Tower)
As one of the busiest hospitals in South Carolina, we encounter a full range of oncologic cases, with special competence in those more often presented: prostate, breast, skin, cervical, lung and gastrointestinal cancer, and lymphoma.
The majority of cancer diagnoses are made or confirmed by a pathologist, who renders the diagnosis into an official pathology report. Pathologists do not see patients directly, but serve as consultants to other physicians.
Cancer Consultant Networking
An extensive roster of world-renowned experts in specification of rare types of cancer is available for consult when needed. Having emphasized optimal handling and processing of specimens in our lab, the opinions of these experts are less than 24 hours away in any location in the United States.
For as long as cancer screening has been in use, the Pap smear has by far been the most successful test. In 2002, we made it even more effective by implementing liquid-based sample processing and becoming the first lab in South Carolina to implement supplementary robotic image analyzer screening of all cases.
