FAQ's About Cancer

Cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the body. Cancer develops when the body’s normal control mechanism stops working. Old cells do not die and instead grow out of control, forming new, abnormal cells. These extra cells may form a mass of tissue, called a tumor

Oncologist is doctor who is specially trained in treatment of cancer treatment. In India doctors having degree of MD/DNB in Radiation Oncology, DM Medical oncology and MCH in surgical oncology are qualified for treatment of cancer patients. If you or your loved one is diagnosed as cancer then you should consult Oncologist for treatment.

There are three different types of cancer treatment namely Radiation Therapy, Chemotherapy and Surgery.

The treatment of cancer depends on the site of cancer (Organ of origin), stage of cancer, type of cancer, patient’s age and general condition and fitness. Oncologist will examine the patient and see all the reports and will decide the treatment.

Stage of the cancer indicates the amount of spread of cancer. It is different in different types of cancer. Metastatic cancer is the disease when cancer has spread from its organ of origin. Outcome of cancer depends on the stage of disease. If disease is detected in early stage then the outcome is good if the disease is detected in late stage then outcome of treatment will be bad.

Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is a cancer treatment that uses high doses of ionizing radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors.

Radiation therapy is energy that’s carried by waves or a stream of particles. Radiation works by damaging the genes (DNA) in cells. Radiation breaks bond in DNA of genome and causes death of cancer cells. Genes control how cells grow and divide. When radiation damages the genes of cancer cells, they can’t grow and divide any more.

At high doses, radiation therapy kills cancer cells or slows their growth by damaging their DNA. Cancer cells whose DNA is damaged beyond repair stop dividing or die. When the damaged cells die, they are broken down and removed by the body. Radiation therapy does not kill cancer cells right away.

In fact, based on the literature reviewed, it appears that external-beam radiation therapy is a superior treatment in some cases. “When patients are treated with modern external-beam radiation therapy, the overall cure rate was 93.3% with a metastasis-free survival rate at 5 years of 96.9%.

Skin problems. Some people who receive radiation therapy experience dryness, itching, blistering, or peeling. …
Fatigue. Fatigue describes feeling tired or exhausted almost all the time.

External beam radiation therapy does not make person radioactive.

Chemotherapy is the use of medicines in the form of injections or tablets to kill cancer cells.

Cancer medicines work by damaging the DNA andRNA that tells the cell how to copy itself in division. If the cancer cells fail to divide then they die. Fast growing cancer cells are more responsive to cancer chemotherapy.

Some chemotherapy drugs can cause painful side effects, such as aching in the muscles and joints, headaches and stomach pains. Pain may be felt as burning, numbness, tingling or shooting pains in the hands and feet (called peripheral nerve damage). This type of pain can last long after treatment ends.

There are multiple tests to diagnose cancer like Biopsy, FNAC, CT scan, PET CT scan, MRI scan. Oncologist will initially examine the patient and then advice regarding the type of test required.

Biopsy is taking a small bit of tissue of tumor and examining it under microscope. A biopsy is the only sure way to diagnosis most cancers.Biopsies are typically associated with cancer, but just because your oncologist orders a biopsy, it doesn’t mean that you have cancer. Doctors use biopsies to test whether abnormalities in your body are caused by cancer or by other conditions.

Positron emission tomography–computed tomography (better known as PET-CT or PET/CT) is a nuclear medicine technique which combines, in a single gantry, a positron emission tomography (PET) scanner and an x-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner, to acquire sequential images from both devices in the same session, which are combined into a single superposed (co-registered) image. Thus, functional imaging obtained by PET, which depicts the spatial distribution of metabolic or biochemical activity in the body can be more precisely aligned or correlated with anatomic imaging obtained by CT scanning. Two- and three-dimensional image reconstruction may be rendered as a function of a common software and control system.
It is used to assist in diagnosis and staging of cancer.
