Members of the LGBTQ community, including those on gender-affirming hormones, experience certain types of cancers more often. In addition, there is an increased cancer burden in the LGBTQ community, meaning its members face more bias and barriers to getting the screening tests and healthcare they need. This leads to higher cancer rates and being diagnosed at a later stage, which is harder to treat.
Our specially trained LGBTQ Affirming oncologists specialize in complete cancer care — from prevention and diagnosis, through treatment and follow-up care — and are committed to helping the LGBTQ community overcome barriers to care.
