Memorial Sloan Kettering brings a vast body of knowledge and expertise to the care of patients with cancer of unknown primary origin. Many recent advances in diagnosing and treating cancer of unknown primary origin — and improvements in survival and quality of life — can be attributed to our multidisciplinary team of doctors.

Your patient care team typically consists of a medical oncologist who specializes in CUP tumors, as well as surgeons, radiation oncologists, and other doctors with the necessary expertise to treat the type of cancer you have. In some cases, for example, your team may also include gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, or pulmonologists. Nurses, social workers, and other healthcare professionals are also available to help you through your treatment.

The following is a list of our experts in cancer of unknown primary origin.
