Specialized Oncology Clinics
At UnityPoint Health, specialized oncology clinics allow patients to receive proactive, innovative care designed specifically for their cancer journey.
Suspicion of Cancer Clinic
After an abnormal imaging result patients may be referred to the Suspicion of Cancer clinic by a primary care provider. Patients with a suspicious, solid mass in the kidney, liver, pancreas, or lung are efficiently guided through the complex healthcare system in order to answer the question: is this cancer or not? Our team reduces the turnaround time from a mass being found, to diagnosis and treatment – detecting cancer in the earliest stage possible to provide the most effective treatment.
Imaging results that may indicate potential referral to Suspicion of Cancer Clinic:
• Greater than 1 cm lung mass
• Kidney mass
• Liver mass
• Pancreatic mass
• General adenopathy or other solid mass
A patient's first consult with the physician may take up to 1.5 hours. After consult, the physician may spend an estimated 3-4 hours per patient – ordering appropriate follow-up diagnostic tests, reviewing results, and connecting with the patient and other providers.
Not all patients who visit our clinic are diagnosed with cancer. If cancer is found, our Suspicion of Cancer Clinic team completes the staging of the disease and refers the patient to surgeons and oncologists to establish a treatment plan. Every minute counts to help patients receive the care they need.
