Cancer Center

Leading cancer care. Closer to home, and on your side.

As the Brazos Valley's leader in cancer care, St. Joseph Cancer Center in Bryan, Texas offers complete services to identify and treat breast, prostate, lung, colon, and many other cancers. Our facilities include the most advanced diagnostics and clinical treatments available, all performed by board-certified cancer doctors – oncologists, radiologists and surgeons.

St. Joseph Cancer Center was designed to treat cancer in a very unique way: by treating cancer and allowing our patients to live as normally as possible during their treatment.

Our cancer doctors have trained at some of the nation's most renowned medical centers. We have the only fellowship-trained radiation oncologist in the Brazos Valley. Our oncology nurses and support team are dedicated to helping each patient work through treatment and recovery in the best way possible for them. As cancer specialists, we create a multidisciplinary approach to each patient’s treatment. Plus, St. Joseph Cancer Center is accredited with a Commendation by the American College of Surgeons (ACOS) Commission on Cancer (COC).

Advanced diagnostics for early detection.

Our Cancer Center is equipped with the latest diagnostic tools to help detect tumors in their earliest stages. Our processes include a promise to turn around breast biopsy results to patients within 24-48 hours. And our nurse navigator works closely with the physician to keep them well-informed of progress during the entire time of a patient’s treatment. Plus, the Breast Center at St. Joseph is the ONLY nationally accredited center in the Brazos Valley earning the designation from the American College of Surgeons through its National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).

Access to pioneering clinical research trials and protocols.

St. Joseph Cancer Center participates in research studies and clinical trials of new and innovative treatments for cancer. A constant flow of studies means that research trials are continuously being opened for our patients. We actively seek patients to take part in trials, administering a treatment or drug being studied, and provide comprehensive follow up on the patient after the trial is concluded.
