Nutritional Therapy

Eating, an essential basic human need, is often severely affected by the illness, the therapy and the psychological strains caused by cancer. It is important to recognize and treat nutritional problems as early as possible. A team of nutritional scientists is available to you at the NCT to answer any questions you might have about nutrition.

Tumor Board

A tumor board consists of a group of experts who discuss the condition and finding of the individual patient. Tumor board meetings are an integral part of the NCT concept. They concentrate the professional competence of an oncologic center of excellence: The expertise and experience of physicians meet the knowledge and skills of scientists, resulting in an optimized treatment proposal. The involvement of physicians of different fields of expertise ensures the high quality of the following treatment.

Sports room

Physical Activity and Cancer – Exercise Room

Treatment of cancer means a strong physical and psychological burden. Exercise or structured physical training can help to reduce or even prevent side effects both during and after cancer treatment. Furthermore, tumor patients themselves can positively influence their subjective well-being through exercise and sports. For this reason the NCT offers all its patients comprehensive sports and exercise counseling and support.
