Palliative Care

Comprehensive Cancer Care at Medica Oncology

What is Cancer?

  • Cancer is a condition when a few of the body’s cells grow out of control and spread to other bodily regions.
  • Human cells often divide (via a process known as cell growth and multiplication) to create new cells as the body requires them. New cells replace old ones when they die as a result of ageing or damage.
  • Occasionally, this systematic process fails, causing damaged or aberrant cells to proliferate when they shouldn’t. Tumors, which are tissue masses, can develop from these cells.
  • Malignant tumors are known to cause cancers.

Screening

  • Screening is the process of examining individuals without symptoms for cancer (or aberrant cells that could develop into cancer).
  • Numerous screening tests have been proven to help find cancer early and lower the likelihood that the patient would pass away from the disease.

Managing Cancer-

It’s possible that you recently found out you have cancer. You might also have cancer yourself, be undergoing treatment, have just finished therapy, or know someone who does. Cancer alters both your life and the lives of people who are close to you. While the disease’s symptoms and its side effects may result in certain bodily changes, they can also have an impact on how you feel and how you live.

Both cancer and its therapies may have negative effects.

Problems known as side effects arise when a medication affects healthy tissues or organs. Speak up if you have any issues. Your medical team can treat you for these adverse effects and/or discuss with you how to lessen them so you feel better.

The following adverse effects can be avoided or managed:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Pain
  • Anemia
  • Nausea & Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Open sores, and many more.

Palliative Care: What Is It?

  • People with serious illnesses can receive specialised medical care called palliative care. Relief from the illness’s symptoms and stress is the main goal of this kind of care. The objective is to enhance the patient’s and the family’s quality of life.
  • A specifically trained group of physicians, nurses, and other professionals who collaborate with a patient’s medical clinicians to offer an additional layer of support provides palliative care.
  • Palliative care is based on the patient’s needs rather than their prognosis. At any age or stage of a serious illness, it is suitable, and it can be given in addition to curative care.
