Frequently Asked Questions

Want to find out more about Cancer treatment? The answer to your questions can be found below.

What is oncology?

Oncology is the branch of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and study of cancer. Oncologists are medical professionals who focus on treating various types of cancer through methods like surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and more.

How is cancer diagnosed?

Cancer diagnosis typically involves a combination of methods, such as medical history, physical exams, blood tests, imaging studies (like CT scans, MRI, or PET scans), and biopsy, where a small sample of tissue is examined for cancer cells.

What are the treatment options for cancer?

Treatment options depend on the type and stage of cancer, as well as other factors like patient health and preferences. Common treatments include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy. Many treatment plans combine several of these methods to achieve the best outcome.

What is radiation therapy, and is it safe?

Radiation therapy uses high-energy radiation to target and kill cancer cells while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. It is generally safe when administered by trained professionals, but it can cause side effects such as skin irritation, fatigue, or localized tissue damage.

Can cancer be prevented?

While not all cancers are preventable, there are lifestyle changes that can reduce your risk, such as maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly, avoiding tobacco and excessive alcohol, protecting your skin from UV radiation, and getting recommended vaccinations (like the HPV vaccine). Regular screenings and check-ups can also help detect cancer early when it's more treatable.

What are the different types of oncologists?

There are several types of oncologists, including:

  • Medical Oncologists who use chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy to treat cancer.

  • Radiation Oncologists who use radiation therapy to target and destroy cancer cells.

  • Surgical Oncologists who perform surgeries to remove tumors and affected tissues.

  • Pediatric Oncologists who specialize in treating cancer in children.

  • Gynecologic Oncologists who focus on cancers affecting the female reproductive system.

What are common symptoms of cancer?

Symptoms of cancer can vary greatly depending on the type of cancer and its stage, but common signs include unusual lumps, unexplained weight loss, persistent fatigue, changes in skin appearance, abnormal bleeding, chronic pain, or changes in bowel or bladder habits. It's important to consult a healthcare professional if you have persistent or unusual symptoms.

What is chemotherapy, and what should I expect?

Chemotherapy involves using drugs to destroy or slow the growth of cancer cells. It can be administered orally or intravenously, and treatment sessions vary in length and frequency. Side effects may include fatigue, nausea, hair loss, and increased risk of infection, but these often depend on the specific drugs and dosage.

What is immunotherapy?

Immunotherapy is a cancer treatment that helps the body's immune system recognize and fight cancer cells. It can involve various approaches, such as checkpoint inhibitors, CAR T-cell therapy, or cancer vaccines. Immunotherapy can be effective for certain types of cancer but may have side effects related to immune system activation.

How can I support someone with cancer?

Supporting someone with cancer involves being there for them emotionally, helping with practical tasks, and respecting their feelings and choices. You can offer transportation to appointments, help with household chores, or simply be a good listener. Joining support groups or seeking professional counseling can also be beneficial for both patients and caregivers.
