Cancer Vaccines

cancer vaccine
System Use only

While there does not yet exist, a breast cancer vaccine or a prostate cancer vaccine, research in both cancer treatments and cancer prevention is ongoing. Today, male and female children can receive a vaccine that will protect them from contracting HPV - human papillomavirus - which can lead to cancer. Sierra Nevada Cancer Center works to track the latest in cancer research and treatment developments in order to provide our patients with the best possible treatment options. Each year Dr. Perez attends numerous conferences and seminars throughout the country and the world in order to bring the latest in FDA-approved cancer care home to his patients. While chemotherapy is still the most widely used and effective  cancer treatment, we are hopeful that other treatments and prevention tools will also be developed in the near future.
