Oncology

In India, over a million new cancer cases are diagnosed every year – with breast cancer, cervical cancer, oral cancer, lung cancer, and colorectal cancer worryingly prominent. But, with time, the survival rates of many types of cancer have improved dramatically – thanks to advancements in the study, research, and technology in the field of oncology. Today, when it comes to preventing and treating the most challenging of cancers, oncologists of all specializations - medical, radiation, and surgical oncology – take a multi-disciplinary and personalized approach to decide the best possible treatment plan for patients.

Conditions and Treatments

Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is a type of cancer that starts in the ovaries, the organs in women that produce eggs. It's often called a "silent killer" because symptoms may not appear until the cancer has spread. Symptoms can include bloating, pelvic pain, and difficulty eating. Diagnosis involves tests like pelvic exams, ultrasounds, and blood tests for specific markers. Treatment typically involves surgery to remove the cancerous tissue, followed by chemotherapy or radiation therapy to kill any remaining cancer cells. Early detection and awareness are essential for improving outcomes, so women need to pay attention to their bodies and seek medical help if they notice any unusual symptoms.

Frequently Asked Questions

Oncology is a medical speciality dedicated to preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer. Oncologists are physicians specializing in oncology, and they work closely with other healthcare professionals to manage cancer patients through various stages of their journey.

Oncologists treat a vast array of cancers affecting different organs and systems within the body. Common cancers include breast cancer, lung cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer, and leukaemia. Oncologists develop personalized treatment plans based on the type, stage, and characteristics of the cancer.

Treatment options in oncology include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies, and hormone therapy. The choice of treatment depends on factors such as cancer type, stage, and the patient's overall health.
 

Individuals should consult an Oncologist if they have been diagnosed with cancer or if they exhibit symptoms such as unexplained weight loss, persistent pain, changes in bowel or bladder habits, or suspicious lumps. Early consultation allows for timely diagnosis and intervention, improving treatment outcomes.

While not all cancers can be prevented, lifestyle choices play a crucial role in reducing the risk. Healthy habits such as maintaining a balanced diet, exercising regularly, avoiding tobacco, and practising sun safety contribute to overall well-being and may lower the risk of certain cancers.

Palliative care in oncology focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of cancer, aiming to improve the quality of life for both patients and their families. It addresses pain management, emotional support, and assistance with treatment decisions throughout the cancer journey.
