What is it?

Some diseases appear at the least expected moment of life and their names can fill us up with fear. Cancer, Leukemia, Metabolism disorders, Anemias, these words can put our life in hold for a moment.

Our oncology service provides an expert and compassionate treatment to people with diseases in which there is an abnormal and disorderly growth of the organ cells; these must be handled in time to prevent it from spreading to other organs and deteriorating the total functioning of the body.
