Oncology Doctors in India

The diagnosis and treatment of cancer, in other words, malignant tumors in the body is known as oncology. Cancer is a disease that needs to be cured as early as possible lest it spreads throughout the body and pushes the person towards his or her end. Though the cost of oncology treatments abroad is high, in India you will find them to be affordable even when the treatment is no less than the international standards. 

What causes cancer?

Cancer can be caused to anyone due to broadly two factors: environmental and genetic. Your lifestyle, habits, diets and infections are the environmental factors that lead to cancer. In such a case, the cancer is not genetically inherited but is caused by external attributes. Whereas, the other reason can be it was present in your genes.   

How will you know that you have cancer?

The symptoms of cancer are hard to find especially in its initial stage. Though different cancers have different symptoms but the most common of them are a lump, abnormal bleeding, persisting coughs, abnormal weight loss and irregular bowel movements.  


What are the common treatment procedures?

As said earlier cancer is detected after its symptoms starts to show, but an initial screening can be done through endoscopy, CT scan, blood tests, urine tests, X-rays and medical imaging. Depending on the stage which you are at or how much cancer has spread across your body and the type of cancer, the most common treatments are surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy and palliative care.
