How we treat cancer at Icon

Radiation Therapy (Radiotherapy)

Radiation therapy, or radiotherapy, is the use of radiation to safely treat and manage cancer. Radiation oncologists use radiation to eradicate cancer cells, reduce their growth or relieve symptoms of cancer.


Chemotherapy is the use of anti-cancer drugs to destroy cancer cells. Many different kinds of chemotherapy medicines and treatment plans are available.


Immunotherapy, or biologic therapy, is a type of treatment that uses your own immune system to fight cancer.

Hormone Therapy

Hormone therapy (also known as endocrine therapy) focuses on depriving cancer cells of the specific hormones that feed them.

Targeted Therapies

Targeted therapy is a type of cancer treatment that targets a patient’s own specific type and stage of cancer. Targeted therapies concentrate on the difference between healthy cells and cancer cells, and interfere with the specific molecules in the cancer cells that tell them to grow and spread.

Receiving treatment at Icon

1. Your first appointment

At the first appointment, you will meet with your experienced doctor who will talk you through your diagnosis and treatment plan, and address any concerns and questions you may have. Your doctor will continue to care for you throughout your entire treatment and beyond.

2. Before starting treatment

Further to your initial appointment, one of our experienced care team will take some time to discuss your treatment, what to expect, possible treatment side effects and how to manage them. They will also chat about possible anxiety you and your family might be feeling. Our team works together with your doctor to ensure your care is truly tailored to your needs and those of your loved ones.

3. Starting treatment

The length of your appointment and cycle depends on the treatment being given. Throughout your treatment and beyond, your doctor and care team are here to monitor your progress, address your side effects and listen to any concerns or fears you may have. Never be afraid to seek clarity and reassurance to ensure you are confident in your treatment and choices.
