If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos cancer like mesothelioma, you should definitely think about a number of issues before choosing which cancer center or treatment program is best for you. Although mesothelioma cancer is now understood as a risk of being exposed to asbestos, occurrence of the disorder is still fairly rare in the population at large; many doctors have never seen any patients with it. Finding a treatment center with up-to-date technology and physicians who keep well informed about new treatment options regarding if you or a family member as been given a diagnosis for malignant mesothelioma. It's also important to select a treatment center staffed by compassionate professionals who will take the time to explain the mesothelioma treatment alternatives and with whom you and your family feel comfortable. Some parts of the country don't have state-of-the-art clinics for hard-to-treat diseases such as peritoneal mesothelioma and pericardial mesothelioma; if you live in such an area you might need to travel so as to obtain the highest chance of remission.

Creighton University Medical Center operates under the auspices of the Creighton University School of Medicine. Patients with melanoma and esophageal cancer are treated at this facility, where a staff of researchers and physicians focus on three major areas of cancer:

  • peritoneal neoplastic diseases
  • breast cancer
  • skin cancer and melanoma.

Solid organ tumors, such as tumors of the colon, the pancreas, and the appendix are also treated at the Cancer Center.

The Creighton University Medical Center Cancer Center's research faculty receives funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), American Cancer Society (ACS), the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, and the Nebraska Smoking & Tobacco Funds. Researchers are currently developing new treatment plans for cancer as well as ways to improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
