Brain, Head, Neck and Neurologic Cancers
Primary brain cancers originate in or next to the brain. Secondary brain cancers result from cancers that begin in another part of the body and spread to the brain. Brain cancers are described by the types of cells in the tumor. Each grows differently and requires its own particular treatment.
Cancers of other structures and organs in the head, neck and nervous system may be treated in multiple ways–such as our thyroid cancer treatment with radioiodine I-131 therapy.
At Reston Hospital Center, our multispecialty approach to cancer care means you'll work with a team of medical professionals from multiple disciplines who know the most about your specific situation. You benefit from our broad range of services and treatments, including:
- Minimally invasive stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) to reach previously inoperable brain tumors and extend survival
- Targeted radiation therapy with the Varian Trilogy™ linear accelerator to ensure elimination of cancerous cells while protecting healthy tissues nearby
Female reproductive system cancers include ovarian, uterine, vaginal and cervical. Often difficult to diagnose because symptoms can be confused with other health conditions, many gynecologic cancers may spread to other parts of the body before being detected. Attention to abnormal bleeding, as well as screenings such as the PAP test, and regular gynecologic exams can lead to early detection and effective treatment.
Choose the Ann B. Rodriguez Cancer Center at Reston Hospital for access to renowned medical professionals and extensive treatment options tailored to your particular circumstances.
We recommend minimally invasive procedures whenever possible, including da Vinci® robotic-assisted surgery provided by members of our Institute for Robotics & Advanced Minimally Invasive Surgery. Our radiation therapy services include external beam intensity modulated image-guided radiation (IMRT) and high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy (internal radiation).
Skin cancer-including basal cell, squamous cell and melanoma–is the most common of all cancers, according to the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.
While melanoma makes up slightly less than 5 percent of skin cancer cases, it's the most deadly. Melanoma can affect anyone, but people with fair or white skin, freckles, blue or green eyes and red or blond hair are most susceptible. When detected early, skin cancer can generally be cured.
Review your risk factors and have suspicious skin areas examined by our medical professionals. If you need treatment, our multispecialty team of physicians discusses your unique situation and provides an individualized plan for treatment, recovery and follow-up specifically focused on your needs.

Edema means swelling. When lymph nodes are removed or damaged during cancer treatment, you may be at risk for fluid retention and swelling in your arms, legs and other parts of the body related to nearby lymph nodes–a condition known as lymphedema. You can improve your cancer recovery when you learn more about your potential for lymphedema and how to treat swelling if it occurs.
