    Frequently Asked Questions

    Cancer is a medical condition in which the old cells start growing abnormally. The uncontrolled growth of the abnormal cells gives rise to cancer. The leading cause behind cancer is the malfunctioning of the standard control mechanism of the body. These abnormal uncontrollable cells form a tumour in the body, and in some cancers like leukaemia, there is no formation of tumours.

    The five major categories of cancer are:

    • Leukaemia: It develops in the bone marrow and blood.
    • Carcinomas: It begins in the skin that lines the internal organs.
    • Lymphomas: It is the cancer of the immune system.
    • Sarcomas: It develops in the connective tissues in the bone, cartilage, and fat.
    • Central nervous system cancer: The brain and spinal cord is affected by this cancer.

    Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women, and if you fear you have breast cancer, look for the best surgical oncologist in Mumbai. Men majorly have prostate cancer. For diagnosis of any kind of cancer, you may schedule an appointment with Dr Praveen Kamamr.

    The risk factors for cancer include:

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

    You can protect yourself from some cancer-causing agents; you can fight obesity by healthily losing weight and reducing sun exposure that causes skin cancer. These can help in lowering the risk of developing cancer.

    Cancer diagnosis and treatment can cause anxiety. If you are looking for a cancer surgeon in Mumbai, who can offer the right diagnosis and treatment, you can contact Dr Praveen Kammar. The years of experience in treating cancer patients make Dr Kammar a renowned name in oncology, with many patients referring to him as the best cancer surgeon in Mumbai.

    The general signs of cancer are:

    • Fatigue
    • Difficulty swallowing
    • Lump under the skin
    • Sudden weight gain or loss
    • Changes in bowel habit
    • Trouble breathing
    • Changes in the skin like the darkening of skin colour or changes in the moles
    • Indigestion
    • Muscle or joint pain
    • Hoarseness
    • Bleeding or bruising

    The signs of cancer also depend on the body part where the cancerous cells have developed.

    Oncology focuses on diagnosing, treating, and researching cancer. The dedicated physician in oncology is known as an oncologist. A patient's treatment is dependent on the type, stage, and cancer's location. The severity of the case decides the requirement of single or multiple oncologists. There are three main specialities in the field of oncology. These are medical, surgical, and radiation.

    A medical oncologist helps in developing the treatment plans for a patient. The treatment plan may include chemotherapy, surgery, immunotherapy, and targeted therapy. They are licensed physicians who are trained in diagnosing, staging, and treating cancerous cells. It is vital to have coordination among oncologists who treat and take care of the patient. The patient will have to go to a medical oncologist after their treatment for the after-surgery care.

    A surgical oncologist performs biopsies and cancer-related operations to remove cancer-causing cells and tumours from the body. They are highly specialised surgeons. To consult with one of the top surgical oncologists in Mumbai, schedule an appointment with Dr Kammar.

    A radiation oncologist uses radiation therapy to destroy cancerous cells.

    Oncology sub-specialists treat different cancers based on their speciality. Gynecologic oncologists treat the cancer of the female reproductive system. The cancer of the female reproductive systems affects the uterus, cervix, and ovaries. Similarly, hematologic oncologists treat blood cancer. A neuro-oncologist is needed to treat the cancer of the brain, nerves, and spine.

    You may consult with Dr Praveen Kammar, widely recognised as one of the best surgical oncologists in Mumbai, for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

    The treatment options for cancer depends on your health condition, the type and the stage of cancer. The primary cancer treatment includes:

    • Surgery: In this treatment procedure, the tumours are directly removed from the body.
    • Chemotherapy: Chemical mixtures are used to kill cancerous cells.
    • Radiation therapy: X-rays are used to treat cancer.

    Advanced technology makes cancer treatment possible. Cancer can affect each individual differently, even if two people suffer from the same type of cancer. If two individuals have breast cancer, they need not undergo the same medication. Their health condition and treatment options may differ, and hence their treatment is also different. Your doctor will look for subtypes within the cancer type to determine the treatment approach.

    Choosing a surgical oncologist is a tedious process. But to make this process a little easy for you, you may consider the below tips:

    • Ask for referrals
      You can take help from your primary care doctor to find an oncologist. They may advise a specialist to treat your health condition. A talk with your relatives, friends, and your doctor will help you get the best referral.
    • Credential of the oncologist
      It is essential to undergo the treatment under an oncologist who has sound knowledge and practice on their specialty and stays up-to-date with the information. You can look for their certificates, board accreditation, and enrollment in education programs to see if they are specialised in treating your health condition. It is essential to know if your chosen oncologist has the right skills and expertise to treat the kind of cancer you have.
    • Experience of the oncologist
      The experience of an oncologist is critical in cancer treatment. You should make sure that the specialist has experience in the treatment of your specific cancer condition. The expertise of an oncologist is directly proportional to the resulting outcome. It means if the oncologist has several years of experience and practice, you can expect good results after surgery. You must check the oncologist's expertise and speciality in cancer surgery.
    • Hospital quality
      Hospital quality needs to be checked before undergoing surgery. It is often seen that the top surgeons provide their services in a top-rated hospital. The survival rates are also higher in a quality hospital. You should also check whether the hospital follows a multidisciplinary approach to treat your disease. By multidisciplinary approach, it is meant that inputs are taken from many cancer specialists. Your treatment plan should include advice from surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and oncologist nurses.
    • Give attention to the oncologist's communication style.
      It is crucial to observe the communication style of your oncologist and see if you can get the required information from them. It will also help if you share details of your health condition and any other confidential information related to your health. Cancer treatment is a long process, and therefore it is ideal for forming a bond with your surgeon. Post-surgery, you need to take follow-up sessions with your oncologist. You may need to spend a lot of time in the hospital with your doctor during your treatment. Hence, it is advised that you undergo your treatment under the supervision of an oncologist with whom you are most comfortable.
