    Frequently Asked Questions

    Cancer is a medical condition caused by the development of abnormal cells in the body. These cells destroy the normal healthy cells and can spread throughout the body.

    In recent times, cancer has emerged as one of the leading causes of deaths in the world. However, the advancement in medical science, cancer screening, treatment and prevention has helped improve the survival rates.

    If you or your loved one needs cancer treatment, you may consider Dr Praveen Kammar.

    There are five common forms of cancer. These are:

    • Carcinoma: It can affect the skin, lungs, breasts, pancreas, glands, and other organs. It is one of the most common cancer forms.
    • Sarcoma: It affects the soft and connective tissues of the body and usually arises in bone, muscle, fat, blood vessels, and cartilage.
    • Melanoma: It arises in the cells that make pigment in the skin.
    • Lymphoma: It is the cancer of lymphocytes.
    • Leukaemia: It is a cancer of the blood.

    These are five commonly found cancers in human beings which deteriorates patient health and would require the best cancer treatment in India.

    The suspected risk factors of cancer include:

    • Age
    • Tobacco
    • Sunlight
    • Alcohol
    • Cancer-causing substances
    • Hormones
    • Diet
    • Chronic-inflammation
    • Radiation
    • Obesity
    • Infectious agents
    • Immunosuppression

    We can avoid some of the factors and keep our body free from cancer. For example, we can prevent factors like obesity, alcohol, tobacco, and exposure to sunlight. If stepping in the sunlight is mandatory for you, take measures to block the harmful rays from entering your skin.

    The common signs and symptoms of cancer include:

    • Pain: Brain tumours can cause headaches. The headache may last for days, and your condition may deteriorate with time. Bone cancer also hurts and can cause persistent pain. If you are experiencing constant pain in your body for no apparent reasons, try consulting a medical care provider.
    • Weight loss: Unintentional and unexplained weight loss is one of the first signs of cancer. A cancer patient usually sheds a lot of weight during the treatment.
    • Fatigue: Cancer-related weight loss, leukaemia, and blood loss from colon and stomach cancer can cause fatigue. Your body feels exhausted even after rest and makes it impossible for you to carry out the daily chores. It becomes difficult to feel high on spirits.
    • Fever: High fever can be an early sign of cancer. If your body temperature is not lowering even after three days, try contacting a doctor. Blood cancer can cause a fever for days or even weeks.
    • Changes in your skin: Changes in skin colour, the occurrence of new moles, bumps, rashes, and marks can serve as an indication for cancer. If you notice skin darkening, unusual hair growth on your body, and a tinge of yellow or red skin, consult your doctor immediately. These changes can happen because of liver, ovarian, or kidney cancer.
    • Sores that don't heal: If you have noticed new spots on your body and if these spots bleed, it could be a sign of skin cancer. Alcohol and tobacco consumption can cause oral cancer, and you may notice sores in your mouth. Oral cancer may cause mouth ulcers.
    • Cough or hoarseness: A cough can be a sign of lung cancer, and hoarseness in your voice can indicate cancer of the voice box or thyroid gland.
    • Unusual bleeding: In the case of colon cancer, you may notice blood in your stool. If you see blood in the urine, you can suspect a tumour along the urinary tract.
    • Anaemia: Bone marrow helps in producing red blood cells in our body. Cancers like leukaemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma can damage the bone marrow and affect red blood cells production.

    Cancer can affect anyone in any age group. Therefore, it is essential to know about its signs and symptoms beforehand. However, these signs do not confirm the presence of cancerous cells in our bodies.

    If you have cancer and are worried about the cancer treatment cost in India, schedule an appointment with Dr Praveen Kammar. Dr Kammar is highly regarded in the medical industry for providing the best cancer treatments in India at affordable prices.

    Oncology, it is a branch of medicine that helps in curing and preventing cancer. A doctor who specialises in oncology is known as an oncologist.

    The first step towards cancer treatment starts with a diagnosis. An oncologist diagnoses the cancerous cells through biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, CT scan, MRI, PET scanning, and other radiological methods.

    The cancer treatment cost in India depends on the stage and severity of the disease. For more information on the cost of treatment, you may contact your oncologist.

    There are many treatment options available to fight cancer. Some of the widely used treatment options include:

    • Surgery: Surgery is performed to remove cancer from your body. Your oncologist performs the surgery to remove as much cancer as possible.
    • Chemotherapy: In chemotherapy, drugs are infused into your body to kill cancerous cells.
    • Radiation therapy: In this process, the oncologist uses energy beams like X-rays or protons to kill the cancerous cells. A machine is used to induce high-power energy beams to kill cancer. External beam radiation or brachytherapy is used to treat cancer.
    • Bone marrow transplant: Bone marrow helps in the production of blood cells in our body. An oncologist can use your bone marrow stem cells or the stem cells from a donor to treat cancer.
    • Immunotherapy: It is also known as biological therapy and uses your body's immune system to fight cancerous cells. Your body may be unable to detect the presence of cancer due to the inability of the immune system. Immunotherapy enables the immune system to check the presence of cancerous cells and attack it.
    • Hormone therapy: Sometimes, our body hormones become irresponsible and give rise to cancer. In hormone therapy, the cancer-causing hormones are removed from the body and attempts are made to block their effects.
    • Targeted drug therapy: It focuses on the specific abnormalities in the cancer cells and limits their growth.
    • Cryoablation: The oncologist inserts a needle into the cancerous cells through your skin. The next step includes pumping gas in the syringe to freeze the tissue, followed by the thaw. The process of freezing and thawing is repeated to kill the cancer cells.
    • Radiofrequency ablation: In this treatment, an oncologist uses electrical energy to heat cancer cells. The heat makes the survival of cancer cells difficult, and they eventually die. A thin needle is inserted into the body through an incision, and high-frequency energy is passed through the needle. The process heats the surrounding tissue, and the cancerous tissues die.
    • Clinical trials: It focuses on investigating new ways to treat cancer cells.

    Many oncologists use laser treatment for cancer in India. However, the treatment options depend on the type of cancer and your overall health status. To know more about the best treatment options, you may consult with Dr Praveen Kammar.
