    Frequently Asked Questions

    Cancer is a disease involving the development of abnormal cells that can divide uncontrollably. They can infiltrate and destroy the body's normal tissues and quickly spread to different tissues present in your body.

    Cancer is one of the most common causes of deaths in the world. Due to technological developments, several treatment options and preventive techniques are available to overcome cancer.

    Carcinoma is the most common cancer that arises in the pancreas, breast, lungs and skin. They can also affect the several glands of the human body.

    Lymphomas are considered cancers of the leukocytes.

    Leukaemia is cancer developing in the blood. It cannot form tumours in the body.

    Sarcomas are the cancers of connective tissues, soft tissues, cartilage, blood vessels, fat, muscles and bones. They do not occur commonly in the human body.

    Melanomas are cancers that arise from pigment cells present in the skin.

    If you experience any symptoms that might indicate cancer, you can book a consultation with Dr Kammar, appraised as one of the best oncologists in India.

    • Age
    • Hormones

    If you are at risk of cancer, you may consult with some of the best medical oncologists in India for preventive treatment.

    Understanding the signs and symptoms of cancer can help you maintain your health and seek preventive measures if need be. However, it is vital to remember that experiencing the symptoms does not mean that you have cancer. Therefore, you are advised to consult with a specialist if you experience any of the below-mentioned signs and symptoms appropriate diagnoses and treatment.

    Common signs and symptoms include:

    • Anaemia:
      When your body suffers from a loss of red blood cells, the condition is known as anaemia. Many cancers such as multiple myeloma, lymphoma and leukaemia can arise and affect your blood levels and bone marrow. In addition, cancers can develop and may affect healthy red blood cells.
    • Unusual bleeding:
      Tumours arising in areas such as the rectum, colon and urinary tract can lead to blood flow in stools or urine.
    • Persistent cough or hoarseness:
      A persistent cough can lead to the development of lung cancer. At the same time, hoarseness in your voice can be a sign of larynx or thyroid gland problems.
    • Delayed healing of sores:
      Delay in the healing of sores can be a sign of skin cancer. In addition, if you consume excessive alcohol, chew tobacco and weed, it can lead to oral cancer.
    • Changes in your skin:
      You will be able to notice marks, bumps or unusual moles on your skin. You may also observe changes such as unexplained rashes, more hair growth, itches, red, yellow or darkening of the skin surface. These signs may be an indication of lymphoma, kidney, ovarian or liver cancer.
    • Fever:
      In case you are suffering from a persistent fever, then you should immediately contact your doctor. Cancers of blood such as lymphoma can cause fever for weeks.
    • Fatigue:
      If you feel tired and exhausted all the time, you should contact your health professional. Cancers such as leukaemia, blood loss from the colon or rectum can lead to fatigue. Weight loss due to cancers can also lead to exhaustion.
    • Weight loss without trying:
      Excessive weight loss is one of the first signs of cancer. If you notice it in your body, you must contact your doctor.
    • Pain:
      Cancers of bone can be painful from the start. For example, brain tumours can cause headaches that do not improve with treatment. Pain can be a visible indication of cancer, so you must contact your doctor if you notice it.

    If you notice any of the signs and symptoms mentioned above, you may consider consulting with Dr Praven Kammar, highly regarded as one of the best oncologist doctors in India.

    A branch of medicine that deals with identifying, research and treatment of cancer is known as oncology. A doctor or a physician who works in this field is known as an oncologist.

    Your doctor will diagnose cancer through ultrasound, PET scanning, MRI, CT scanning, X-ray, endoscopy, biopsy or radiology. Doctors can also use other methods such as nuclear medicine, tumour markers and blood tests to diagnose cancer. Many times oncology is linked with haematology. Haematology is a branch of medicine that deals with blood-related disorders and functions of the blood. Dr Praveen Kammar is one of the best cancer doctors in India and has practiced oncology for over 13 years.

    Different treatment options for cancer are available. Your treatment plan will depend upon factors such as your health, stage and type of cancer. You can take advice from your doctor about benefits related to the different treatment options available. If you want to consult with a cancer specialist in India, contact Dr. Praveen Kammar.

    Cancer treatment options include:

    Clinical trials:
    It involves studies and investigation to find new ways to treat cancer.

    Radiotherapy ablation:
    It involves the usage of electrical energy that destroys the cancerous cells with heat. The doctor will insert a thin needle in your skin through an incision and into the cancer tissues. High-frequency energy is passed through the needle that causes the heating of the tissues leading to their death.

    Cryoablation:
    During this process, a thin needle known as a cryoprobe is used that is inserted into the skin and then into the cancerous tissues. Health professionals then pump the gas into the cryoprobe to freeze the tissues, and it is allowed to thaw. The procedure involving freezing and thawing is repeated several times during each session to kill the cancerous tissues.

    Targeted drug therapy:
    The targeted drug therapy involves focusing on the abnormal cancer cells that allow them to survive.

    Hormone therapy:
    Some cancers are caused by abnormalities in hormonal levels. Examples involve breast cancer and prostate cancer. Removing the affected hormones from the body may lead to retardation in the growth of the cancer cells.

    Immunotherapy:
    It is also known as biological therapy. It involves the usage of the body immune system to fight cancerous cells. Cancer will survive in your body only when your immune system cannot recognise the foreign particles in the body. Immunotherapy will help the immune system to attack the cancerous cells.

    Bone marrow transplant:
    Your bone marrow is responsible for making stem and blood cells for the normal functioning of the body. A bone marrow transplant involves the usage of higher doses of chemotherapy to treat your cancer. Your doctors can also replace your bone marrow by transplanting your stem cells or extracting them from the donor. It is also known as stem cell transplant.

    Radiation therapy:
    The procedure involves using high power energy beams such as protons or X rays to kill various cancerous cells. Doctors can destroy the affected tissues using external beam radiation or place the source inside your body, known as brachytherapy.

    Chemotherapy:
    A process in which drugs are used to kill cancerous cells is known as chemotherapy.

    Surgery:
    The primary concern of your doctor while performing the surgery is to remove the tumour or cancerous cells from your body.

    Your health professional can also use any of the treatment mentioned above depending upon the type and stage of cancer. While many oncologists can offer treatment to undergo cancer treatment under the guidance of one of the best medical oncology doctors in India, you may consult with Dr Praveen Kammar.
