Advanced technology is now available and is being used for the treatment of cancer.

These treatment methods help in restoring good health. They make it possible for patients to get back to some type of normal routine in their lives.

Different types of treatments for cancer:

Chemotherapy

This is an effective form of treatment, wherein the cells are prevented from reproducing and multiplying further.

In the process, normal cells may also be destroyed. Cancer cells need to be destroyed without harming the normal cells to maintain a proper balance.

Radiation

In the process of radiation, a powerful beam of energy waves is used for the purpose of killing the cells.

Radiation therapy is commonly used with other types of treatment like surgery for the purpose of destroying these cells completely.

Surgery

With the advances in surgery, different types of cancer can be cured.

The part affected by cancer is removed and also the surrounding tissues are eliminated so that it does not grow further. After surgery, radiation therapy may be used to eliminate cells completely.

Targeted Therapy

This is a new type of treatment for cancer. Drugs are used in this form of treatment, which helps in specifically removing the cancer cells.

Transplantation

A bone marrow transplant may also be considered. New tissues replace the cells affected by cancer.

A doctor will determine the best treatment for cancer to help fight this disease.

Most of the current cancer treatments can be painful. It is the job of the doctor to help prepare their patients mentally and emotionally for treatment.

A patient may require a lot of hand-holding and the doctor should be able to understand and share another person’s experiences and emotions, in other words – the ability to share someone else’s feelings.

The doctor should also be sensitive enough to understand what their patient might be feeling and/or experiencing.

Cancer treatment may result in the loss of an organ. If this is going to happen, the first concern of the doctor should be to treat cancer and the second concern should be organ conservation.

If a doctor is dealing with a terminal patient, he/she should be even more caring and sensitive towards the feelings of their patient.

It’s not just knowledge that is needed for successful treatment but also compassion and care.

The patient will always look to their doctor for reassurance.
