Surya Hospitals understands that receiving a cancer diagnosis may be both overwhelming and life-changing as it causes a substantial number of mortalities, approximately 10 million people worldwide. Our dedicated Cancer Care Facility provides thorough and compassionate care to cancer patients. We aspire to provide the greatest standard of cancer care by utilizing cutting-edge technology, a diverse team of professionals, and a patient-centred approach.
What is Cancer?
Cancer is a complex and comprehensive term that refers to a collection of disorders characterized by abnormal cell growth and division in the body. Cells normally grow, divide, and die in a controlled manner. This normal process, however, breaks down in cancer, resulting in the creation of a mass of tissue known as a tumour.
Tumours are divided into two types: benign and malignant. Non-cancerous benign tumours do not spread to other regions of the body. Malignant tumours, on the other hand, are cancerous and have the ability to infect adjacent tissues and migrate to other parts of the body.
Cancer is usually caused by a mix of hereditary and environmental causes. Certain genetic mutations or alterations can disrupt the normal cell growth regulation processes, leading to the uncontrollable cell multiplication.
Cancer Signs and Symptoms:
Chronic weariness, unexplained weight loss, pain, skin changes, a mass or thickening in the body, changes in bowel or bladder habits, chronic cough or hoarseness, and difficulty swallowing are some of the most prevalent symptoms. It is crucial to note that these symptoms can also be caused by non-cancerous illnesses. If you have any persistent or worrying symptoms, you should seek the advice of a healthcare expert for thorough examination and diagnosis.
In cancer treatment, accurate and fast diagnosis is critical. Our centre provides modern diagnostic procedures to detect cancer in its early stages. To discover and analyze tumours, our skilled team of oncologists and radiologists employs cutting-edge imaging techniques such as MRI, CT scans, and PET-CT scans. Biopsies are also performed, which include taking a tiny sample of tissue for laboratory analysis to detect the kind and stage of cancer.
At Surya Hospitals, we believe in a personalized treatment strategy that takes each patient’s specific condition and needs into account. Our multidisciplinary team of oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, and other specialists works together to create an individualised treatment strategy for each patient. We prioritize patient participation in decision-making and ensure that they are aware of all available options.
- Surgery: Surgical intervention is frequently used as a primary cancer treatment strategy. Tumour removal, lymph node dissection, and reconstructive surgery are among the operations performed by our expert surgeons. To minimize discomfort and promote speedier recovery, we attempt to employ minimally invasive treatments whenever possible.
- Radiation Therapy: High-energy radiation is used to target and destroy cancer cells. Our modern radiation therapy equipment, such as linear accelerators, ensures precision targeting while causing the least amount of damage to the tissues that are in good health. We provide external beam radiation therapy as well as brachytherapy, a procedure in which radiation sources are placed directly near or inside the tumour.
- Chemotherapy: It is the employment of highly effective medications to kill cancer cells. Based on the kind and stage of cancer, our skilled medical oncologists create personalized chemotherapy regimens. We continuously follow patients during therapy to manage adverse effects and provide the best possible outcomes.
- Immunotherapy: It is a revolutionary treatment strategy that uses the body’s immune system to combat cancer. Immunotherapy aids in the targeting and destruction of cancer cells by increasing the immune response. Our centre provides a variety of immunotherapy alternatives that are tailored to each patient’s individual cancer kind.
- Targeted Therapy: Drugs that specifically target cancer cells based on their genetic traits are used in targeted therapy. Targeted therapy tries to stop the growth and spread of cancer cells while causing the least amount of damage to healthy cells by focusing on specific molecular abnormalities. Our oncologists use new molecular profiling tools to find the most targeted medicines for each patient.
We recognise that cancer treatment can be both physically and emotionally taxing. That is why we offer complete supportive care services to meet our patients’ overall needs. Our committed team of nurses, psychologists, dietitians, and rehabilitation specialists collaborate to deliver the following services:
- Management of Pain
- Emotional and psychological assistance
- Nutritional advice
- Services for Rehabilitation
- Symptom management and palliative care
Clinical Research and Trials:
Surya Hospitals is dedicated to improving cancer care via research and innovation. We are actively involved in clinical trials to test new treatment options and enhance patient outcomes. Patients who participate in clinical trials may gain access to cutting-edge medicines that are not yet generally available.
Finally, at Surya Hospitals Cancer Care Facility, we endeavour to deliver comprehensive, compassionate, and patient-centred care to cancer patients. Our comprehensive approach, sophisticated treatment choices, and supportive care services guarantee that our patients receive the best possible care at every stage of their cancer journey. Trust us to be your cancer-fighting partner as we work towards a brighter and healthier future.
