Cancer is one of the most dreadful diseases today and is considered to be one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide, but there is hope. We need to understand cancer, its types and classification, its effects, methods of diagnosis, and modalities of cancer treatment available. We need to overcome the fear attached to this disease as not all cancers are fatal; many cancers are treatable if detected in early stages.
Cancers are due to multifactorial causes; there are certain predisposing factors, hereditary factors, genetic factors and life style factors.Regular checkups and early diagnosis is the key in effective prevention and treatment of Cancer.

  FAQs:

Cancer is uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells anywhere in the body (blood, brain, bone, stomach, Skin or any organ) and many of these abnormal cells are capable of invading other tissues.

The most common sites of cancer among men in India are lung, head & neck, prostate, colon, rectum, stomach and liver.

The most common sites of cancer among women are breast, cervix, ovary, head & neck, and colo-rectum.

Screening can picks up disease at an EARLY STAGE and early diagnosis is the key in effective prevention and treatment of Cancer.

The first thing you should do is contact your family physician or the physician who diagnosed your cancer and get a recommendation for an oncologist. Often a surgeon and medical oncologist are the first physicians you will need to meet with to determine the best course of treatment. Radiation oncologists will be referred to you from either the surgeon, medical oncologist, or both if radiation is indicated as part of your treatment plan. If you do not have a physician, MGM Hospital can assist you in finding the physicians you need to receive optimal care.

Side effects differ from person to person and will depend on the area of the body that is being treated with radiation or the type of drug being infused for chemotherapy. Our therapy and nursing team will discuss the side effects and how you can manage them before, during, and after your radiation treatment. We also have a support team that includes a dietitian who specializes in oncology nutrition.
