The bone marrow, where blood cells are made, is where the majority of blood malignancies, also known as hematologic tumors, begin. Blood cancers develop when abnormal blood cells begin to expand uncontrollably and interfere with the regular blood cells’ ability to fend off infection and generate new blood cells.

Though it can start in any bone, it is predominantly diagnosed in legs & arms and pelvis long bones. Bone cancer can cause persistent pain, swelling or lump over joints and restrictions on joint mobility. It needs screening to diagnose and begin treatment in time for a cure in time.

Brain Cancer
Brain Cancer in Kolhapur

In place of brain cancer, clinicians frequently refer to brain tumors. The majority of brain tumors can spread via the brain tissue, but they seldom do so to other regions of the body.

Brain tumors can alter a person’s thinking, speech, or movement patterns.

chemotheropy
Chemothaeropy in Kolhapur

Chemotherapy employs drugs to eradicate cancer cells. With this specific cancer therapy, cancer cells are prevented from multiplying, dividing, and generating new cells. A number of cancers can be treated using chemotherapy. Your doctor may refer to chemotherapy as normal chemotherapy, conventional chemotherapy, or cytotoxic chemotherapy. The medicine chemotherapy has an overall body-wide impact. This implies that it circulates throughout the body via the bloodstream. Chemotherapy comes in a variety of forms. Chemotherapy drugs, in general, are strong chemicals that destroy malignant cells at specific stages of the cell cycle. In all living things, new cells are produced by a process called the cell cycle. Chemotherapy has a greater effect on these rapidly multiplying cells because cancer cells go through this cycle faster than healthy cells.

Immunotherapy
Immunotherapy in Kolhapur

Immunotherapy, a wide term for a class of drugs used to treat cancer, activates the immune system to fight cancer cells. Healthy cells naturally die off, however, cancer cells do not. They proliferate like an untamed copy machine that won’t quit. The immune system, which protects the body from infections and disease, is unable to identify these abnormal cells because they frequently alter or mutate. In order for the immune system to detect and destroy these changed cells, drugs employed in cancer immunotherapy are designed to alert it to their presence. Immunotherapy is a treatment option for several types of cancer. It may be used alone or in conjunction with other cancer treatments such as chemotherapy.

Targeted Therapy
Targeted Therapy in Kolhapur

Targeted therapy is a method of cancer treatment that identifies and kills specific cancer cell types. Targeted therapy may be used alone or in conjunction with other forms of therapy, including radiation therapy, surgery, conventional chemotherapy, and immunotherapy. Knowing how it functions and what to anticipate can frequently help you get ready for treatment and make wise decisions about your care if your treatment plan calls for targeted therapy. “Targeted therapy” for cancer focuses on particular proteins that control the growth, proliferation, and spread of cancer cells. Precision medicine is built on this principle. As information about the DNA alterations and proteins that feed cancer grows, researchers are better able to create cancer therapies that target these proteins.

Palliative Care
Palliative Care in Kolhapur

Palliative care is a medical treatment designed to enhance the quality of life for people with serious or life-threatening illnesses, such as cancer. It may be administered with or without curative therapy. Along with cancer treatments that aim to stop, slow down or cure cancer, palliative care is a crucial component of medical therapy. Palliative care, according to research, can increase your quality of life and make you feel happier with your medical care. Palliative care may begin as soon as you find that you have cancer and you may continue to get it while undergoing treatment and recovering. For instance, palliative care may be provided to cancer survivors who continue to experience symptoms or side effects after their treatment has finished.

Day Care Centre

Up until the idea of “Chemotherapy Daycare” was developed, chemotherapies were conventionally exclusively provided in hospital settings due to the difficulties in administration and overall care. Cancer patients benefit in numerous ways from chemotherapy daycare. It delivers convenience to patients while also saving time and money. Mumbai Oncocare Centre is proud to have been the forerunner in the establishment of a chain of chemotherapy daycare facilities across Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh for the ease and efficiency of the treatment process.

Clinical research has been at the helm of medical affairs worldwide right from the inception of healthcare and it has grown in importance by passing time. In Cancer related treatment interventions, clinical research is all the more relevant as the desired treatment outcomes are hard to come by, sometimes come with minor improvements. Clinical research in Oncology therefore accumulates many such small clinical improvements to make a significant evidence before certifying newer therapies for the treatment. Unfortunately in India, we failed to conduct clinical trials in ethical manner in the past and document it. There are many reasons to it including poor infrastructure and other healthcare priorities for government.

2nd Opinion Clinic

A second opinion is a medical diagnosis offered by a medical professional or organization other than the one currently treating the patient. The patient or their family or friends give the second doctor access to the patient’s medical information. The second doctor evaluates the records and offers a Second Opinion on the best course of treatment, outlining why it is the best option. In complex circumstances, second opinions offer the chance to review the problem with a panel of experts or a tumor board and suggest the best, most patient-centered course of action.

A tumor board is a collection of medical professionals from various specialties who gather periodically at a hospital to talk about cancer patients and exchange information. The purpose of the board is to choose the most effective course of cancer therapy and care for each patient. It is much simpler to develop that approach when you get new viewpoints from various medical professionals.

Onco Nutrition
Onco Nutrition in Kolhapur

A topic everyone has a say about but only the professionals can guide you with the right advice. Food and diet for a cancer patient is often clouded with trends, fad diets, remedies and myths circulating around without a strong backbone of research or even basic science. While a patient is overwhelmed trying all of them, their nutritional requirements are often compromised and the body is deprived of essential nutrients required during cancer treatment leading to malnutrition. A patient’s diet is one of the critical factors that needs to be evaluated and screened for right from the detection of malignancy. Lifestyle change can help the patient in tremendous ways. From physical activity, water intake, moderation in sugar consumption and processed foods are a few examples which can even prevent cancer to start with.

Onco physiotherapy

In order to assist the body recover and strengthening, physiotherapy is crucial during the healing process.
