    Frequently Asked Questions

    Cancer is a broad term for various disorders defined by the uncontrollable division of aberrant cells with the capacity to infiltrate and destroy normal human tissue. Cancer has a high proclivity for spreading throughout the body.

    Cancer is the world's second-largest cause of mortality. However, because of advancements in cancer detection, treatment, and prevention, survival rates for many forms of cancer are rising. Dr. Praveen Kammar is one of the best cancer surgeons in India, and has 13+ years of experience in treating cancer.

    Carcinoma, sarcoma, melanoma, lymphoma, and leukaemia are the most common cancers. Carcinomas arise in the skin, lungs, breasts, pancreas, and other organs and glands and are the most often diagnosed cancer.

    Some of the most common types of cancer are

    • Lymphomas are lymphocyte cancer.
    • Leukaemia is a kind of blood cancer. It normally does not develop solid tumours.
    • Sarcomas develop in the body's bone, muscle, fat, blood vessels, cartilage, and other soft and connective tissues. They are not very prevalent.
    • Melanomas are tumours that develop in the cells that produce skin pigment.

    Finding the top surgical oncologist in India might be challenging, so Dr Praveen Kammar can be a good option for you if you're seeking one.

    The following are the most prevalent cancer causes and risk factors:

    • Consumption of tobacco
    • Alcohol
    • Deficiency in physical activity
    • Obesity
    • Exposure to the sun and radiations
    • Virus infections and other infections
    • Exposure to cancer-causing substances
    • Genetics and family history
    • Chronic inflammation
    • Age
    • Hormones
    • Immunosuppression

    If you are searching for the best onco surgeon in India, you can visit Dr Praveen for an effective treatment.

    The following are some of the most common cancer signs and symptoms in both men and women:

    Pain-Bone cancer is generally painful from the start. Some brain tumours generate persistent headaches that do not improve with treatments. Pain may also be a late indicator of cancer, so if you're not sure why it's happening, or it doesn't go away, visit a doctor.

    Weight loss without exerting effort- Almost half of the cancer patients lose weight. It's usually one of the first indications they notice.

    Fatigue-Tell your doctor if you're constantly fatigued, and resting doesn't help. Leukaemia can exhaust you, while colon or stomach cancer might cause blood loss. Cancer-related weight loss might also make you tired.

    Fever- Call your doctor if the fever is too high or lasts more than three days. Certain blood cancer, such as lymphoma, can induce a fever that lasts for days or weeks.

    Changes in your skin- To ensure that skin cancer isn't hiding, have your doctor examine any strange or new moles, lumps, or markings on your body. Other types of cancer can be detected by looking at your skin. It might be an indication of liver, ovarian, or kidney cancer or lymphoma. If it's darker, appears yellow or red, itches, or grows more hair, or if you have an inexplicable rash, you may have cancer.

    Sores that don't heal- Bleeding spots that refuse to go away are also indicators of skin cancer. Sores in the mouth might be the first sign of oral cancer. You're at greater risk if you smoke, chew tobacco, or consume a lot of alcohol.

    Coughing or hoarseness that persists- Coughing is a symptom of lung cancer, and hoarseness might indicate cancer of the larynx (voice box) or thyroid gland.

    Unusual bleeding- Cancer can cause blood to appear in places where it shouldn't. The presence of blood in your faeces is a sign of colon or rectal cancer. Blood can also be seen in your urine if you have cancer in your urinary system.

    Anaemia- It occurs when your body's supply of red blood cells, which are produced in the bone marrow, is insufficient. Cancers that affect your marrow include leukaemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. Tumours that have migrated from other parts of the body may crowd out normal red blood cells.

    You should not take cancer lightly; if you notice any of these symptoms, you should see a doctor; if you do have cancer, then it's advisable that you get yourself treated by the best surgical oncologist in India.

    Oncology is a medical speciality that studies, diagnoses, and treats cancer. An oncologist is a doctor who specialises in cancer treatment. Oncologists detect cancer using biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, CT scanning, MRI, PET scanning, ultrasound, or other radiological procedures. Nuclear medicine, as well as blood tests and tumour markers, can be used to treat cancer. Haematology, the field of medicine that deals with blood and blood-related illnesses, is frequently associated with oncology.

    There are several cancer treatments available. The kind and phase of your cancer and your overall health and preferences will all influence your treatment options. You and your doctor can decide which cancer treatment is ideal for you by weighing the advantages and dangers of each option. Dr Praveen is one of the top 10 cancer surgeons in India and provides treatment for several cancer types.

    Treatment options for cancer include:

    Surgery
    Surgery's purpose is to eliminate cancer or as much of it as feasible.

    Chemotherapy
    Chemotherapy is a treatment that employs chemicals to destroy cancer cells.

    Radiation therapy
    To destroy cancer cells, radiation treatment employs high-powered energy beams such as X-rays or protons. Radiation therapy can originate from a machine outside your body (external beam radiation) or within your body (internal beam radiation).

    Bone marrow transplant
    The stuff within your bones called bone marrow produces blood cells from blood stem cells. A bone marrow transplant, commonly known as a stem cell transplant, can employ either your own or a donor's bone marrow stem cells. A bone marrow transplant allows your doctor to treat your cancer with larger chemotherapy doses. It can also be used to replace bone marrow that has become diseased.

    Immunotherapy
    Immunotherapy, often known as biological therapy, is a cancer treatment that uses your body's immune system. Because your immune system does not detect cancer as an intruder, it can thrive uncontrolled in your body. Immunotherapy can assist your immune system in "seeing" and attacking cancer.

    Hormone therapy
    Hormones in the body drive some cancers. Breast cancer and prostate cancer are two examples. Cancer cells may cease developing if such hormones are removed from the body, or their effects are blocked.

    Cryoablation
    Cold destroys cancer cells with this therapy. A tiny, wand-like needle (cryoprobe) is introduced through your skin and straight into the malignant tumour during cryoablation. To freeze the tissue, a gas is fed into the cryoprobe. The tissue is then allowed to defrost. The freezing and thawing process is performed numerous times during the same therapy session to destroy cancer cells.

    Radiofrequency ablation
    This therapy heats cancer cells, leading them to die, utilising electrical energy. A surgeon inserts a small needle into the cancer tissue through the skin or an incision during radiofrequency ablation. High-frequency radiation goes through the needle and heats the surrounding tissue, destroying the cells in the area.

    Clinical trials
    Clinical trials are research projects that look at novel ways to cure cancer. Thousands of clinical studies for cancer treatment are now being conducted.

    Drug treatment with a specific goal in mind can also be utilised to treat cancer. It focuses on cancer cells' particular defects that allow them to survive. Also, depending on the type of cancer you have, you may be eligible for additional therapies. If you are looking for a specialist for cancer treatment, you may consult with Dr Praveen Kammar, widely recognised as one of the best oncologist surgeons in India.
