Diagnosis of cancer in elderly people

The incidence of cancer increases with age and the management of these cancers raises specific issues. Indeed, the tolerance and delivery of treatments usually given to younger people are not the same.

Treatment of cancer in elderly people

At the Centre Azuréen de Cancérologie, in partnership with Nice University Hospital, we offer an Onco-Geriatric consultation on site in Mougins. This specialised assessment makes it possible to determine the characteristics of the patient in order to adapt the treatments offered and to determine the best medical and social care.
