Discover the 5 Cs that make us the right choice for your anal cancer care. Choose Massey for your anal cancer care because we are:

Cutting-edge

Our doctors have unparalleled knowledge and experience in diagnosing and treating all types of colorectal cancers and polyps (growths on the inner wall of the colon or rectum) and cysts. We have new forms of surgical treatment that preserve the function of the bowel and rectum, and we offer advanced noninvasive procedures to determine how much cancer is present and how far it has spread.

Comprehensive

The colorectal cancer program at Massey offers an integrative approach with a full range of treatment options that support patients' strength and well-being while improving quality of life through treatment, recovery and survivorship. We also offer support services that range from helping minimize pain, symptoms and side effects to helping cope with the cognitive, emotional and psychological effects of cancer.

Collaborative

Cancer care generally requires multiple forms of therapy and various specialized doctors and specialists, who work as a team to treat the patient. Massey pioneered the region’s multidisciplinary approach in which specialists from numerous medical backgrounds collaborate in teams to coordinate all aspects and stages of patient care – and conveniently provide that care in multiple locations. This approach ensures that patients will receive the ideal combination and sequence of treatment.

Compassionate

Through respectful, attentive and compassionate care, Massey’s care team builds healing relationships with patients that help reduce suffering from cancer. We recognize that each patient’s medical, social, emotional and personal needs are unique, which is why patients have access to resources such as social workers, psychologists, legal and financial assistance, support groups, educational workshops and more.

Customized

Recognizing that each patient is unique and each type of cancer is different, Massey provides treatment strategies and care plans tailored and individualized to the patient. Patients also have direct access to a nurse navigator, who will provide guidance as they move through the health care system and treatment process.

Becoming a Patient

Our award-winning team at VCU Massey Cancer Center is transforming how cancers are prevented, detected, treated and cured, and it is our pleasure to care for you and your loved ones. Cancer is complex and its care can be complicated, so we want to make your experience as our patient as simple and positive as possible.
