What is Cancer?
Cancer is a large, heterogeneous class of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth, invades and destroys (near by) tissues, and often metastasizes (spread) via the lymphatic system or through the bloodstream. These three malignant properties of cancer differentiate it from benign tumors, which does not grow uncontrollably, invades locally, or metastasize.
Treatment for Cancer
- Chemotherapy, Targeted therapy, Hormone therapy and immunotherapy – treatment of cancer with anti-neoplastic and anticancer drug.
- Radiotherapy – treatment of cancer using radiation to kill the cancer cells
- Surgery – invasive procedure to physically remove the cancer
* Most of the cancer patients need a combination of the three disciplines or less for the best outcome. This will be best advised and determined by the consultant oncologist.
