What is Cancer?

Cancer is a condition where cells in a specific part of the body grow and reproduce uncontrollably. The cancerous cells can invade and destroy surrounding healthy tissue, including organs.

Cancer can begin in one part of the body before spreading to other areas. This process is known as metastasis.

There are more than 200 different types of cancer, and each is diagnosed and treated in a particular way. Some of the more common types of cancer include breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer and bowl cancer.

Not all tumors are cancerous or malignant. Some are benign (non-malignant), don’t spread, and aren’t life-threatening. A few cancers don’t form masses or lumps including those that affect the blood such as leukaemia.

Cancer can be treatable, especially if identified early and treated with the correct treatments.

Diagnosis

A doctor should review a patient’s medical history and perform a thorough physical examination.

Then blood tests and CT scans of the chest, abdomen and pelvis may be done. Depending on the results, follow-up tests may be done using MRI and PET scans.

Often a biopsy is necessary to confirm the diagnosis and provide information for prognosis and therapy.

Maybe you’ve been diagnosed with cancer but can’t get a full range of tests. Maybe you haven’t been diagnosed with cancer but are worried that you may have it and you want to be thoroughly tested.

Have you thought about travelling to an overseas hospital for a full range of tests, perhaps even a second opinion?

IMT can help.

We can link you with our affiliated hospitals and clinics in India, Dubai, Thailand and Kenya for cost-effective, high quality diagnostic tests. All our affiliated hospitals and clinics are internationally accredited and have state of the art diagnostic equipment including new CT, MRI and PET scanners.

These are some of the common treatment options for Lung Cancer

  • Surgery: This is done to remove part of a cancer tumor, the entire tumor or even an entire organ and is often followed by other treatment options.

  • Chemotherapy: This treatment uses anti- cancer drugs to kill the cancer cells in the body. These drugs can be taken orally or injected into the body.

  • Radiotherapy: This involves using high- energy beams to kill cancer cells and may be external (using x- rays) or internal by using radioactive pellets.

  • Chemo-radiation Therapy: This is a combination of both Chemo and Radiation treatments.

  • Brachytherapy: This is a type of radiation that uses radioactive material implanted into the body allowing doctors to deliver high doses of radiation to the affected area of the body.

  • Image Guided Radiation Therapy: This treatment combines x- ray imaging and radiation treatment allowing the daily tracking of changes in both location and shape of the tumor and the normal tissues which surround the tumor.

  • Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiation Therapy (3D- DRT): It uses a set of CT images to identify both tumor and normal tissue that need to be avoided before radiation is carried out by directing radiation beams into the cancer patient’s body from many angles to destroy the tumor and cause no harm to the normal tissues.

  • Laser Treatment: It uses laser beams of light to burn away abnormal cancerous cells.

  • Photodynamic Therapy: It uses drugs and laser light to kill cancer cells.

  • Diathermy/ Electrocautery/ Thermocautery Treatment: It uses electric current to destroy cancer cells in the body.
