Early detection

Our oncologists aim to detect cancer as early as possible. That includes in-person, phone, and email reminders about which screenings you may need. In fact, we lead the nation in cancer screening rates.2

Recovery support

Your care team will continue monitoring your health during recovery and beyond. Plus, they’ll help you get the physical and mental health support you need to stay healthy.



Cancer expertise across our network

Kaiser Permanente has experts in nearly every type of cancer — all connected in our health network. So, no matter where you get day-to-day care, they can review and collaborate on your personal treatment plan. 

If we treat a type of cancer, then we have a specialist for it at Kaiser Permanente. Our primary care doctors and cancer care teams consult our vast network of specialists across the country. They collaborate to review and advise on treatment plans and share best practices.

Our dedicated care teams build personal, trusting relationships to support all that is you — physically, mentally, and emotionally. We’ll be there every step of the way, so you and your loved ones can focus on what matters to you.

Your electronic health record connects your whole care team to the latest information on your progress. They can view your visit notes and history at any time. That way, you can focus on your treatment and recovery — instead of repeating your health history at every appointment. You can also access your own records anytime on or in our app.

With your total health in mind, our specialists regularly collaborate to share the latest cancer research, clinical trials, treatments, and best practices. And we’ve treated more cancer patients than most providers. This means you get the most advanced cancer treatments and experience available — for even the most complex cancer cases.
