Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

Cancer is a disease in which some cells of the body grow uncontrollably. These cells may form tumors, which are lumps of tissue. Tumors can be cancerous or not cancerous (benign).Benign tumors do not spread into, or invade, nearby tissues. When removed, benign tumors usually don’t grow back, whereas cancerous tumors sometimes do.

Surgery, Chemotherapy, Radiotherapy, Targeted therapy, hormonal therapy, immunotherapy, transplantation are the various which are used separately or in combination to treat cancers. Type of therapy used is usually decided by the type & stage of cancer in combination to various other factors.

We need to perform a set of tests in order to stage cancer which helps us in tailoring the appropriate therapy .

Whether a person’s cancer can be cured depends on the type and stage of the cancer, the type of treatment they can get, general condition and comorbidities of the patient and various other factors. Some cancers are more likely to be cured than others. But each cancer needs to be treated differently. There isn’t one cure for all cancers.

The patient should commence cancer treatment as early as possible after getting properly staged using appropriate investigations. Delay in starting treatment gives cancer cells an opportunity to keep multiplying which in turn can impact the results of treatment.
