FAQ's

Cancer is a general term that describes the uncontrollable growth and spread of cells. Normally, our cells grow and divide in a controlled manner, but when it happens quickly, the consequences on our health can be profound. The defective cells that grow uncontrollably form a lump of abnormal tissue called a tumour.

Two main factors contribute to the development of cancer:

  • Individuals might have a tendency or predisposition to develop cancer.
  • Exposure to triggers such as cigarettes, environmental toxins, sun exposure, or liver damage may cause cancer.

The type and stage of cancer are identified with diagnostic tests and are the best indicators of what lies ahead for the patient. Each staging system identifies the size and location of the tumour and whether it has spread to other areas. The stage determines the treatment, and the patient has a significantly high survival rate in the early stages of cancer.

 

While someone doesn't need to accompany you, we recommend it. We will provide a lot of new information about your condition and treatment. Having someone along will help process the information and clarify any questions or concerns.

Treatment time may vary depending on the type and stage of the cancer you have. Our specialists will work with you to devise personalised treatment plans that suit your needs.

Radiation therapy kills or damages cancer cells in the area of treatment. Most irradiated cells begin to die within a few days of starting treatment and continue to do so until treatment ends.

Most cancer patients experience gastrointestinal issues during treatment. Therefore, nutrition therapy serves as a way to restore digestive health, prevent malnutrition, and meet dietary requirements. Cancer patients can be nourished and healthy through adequate dietary intake.
