Medical Oncology

Medical oncology is one of the major cancer treatment modalities, and it uses systemic treatment approaches such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, and hormonal therapy to manage cancer effectively. These systemic therapies help destroy cancer cells present throughout the body. They are frequently used in conjunction with other treatment modalities, such as surgery and radiation therapy, to achieve the best clinical outcomes for patients. 

The factors responsible for cancer include tobacco, alcohol, obesity, and age. Its symptoms depend on the site and type of the cancer, such as breast cancer, lung cancer, ovary cancer, cervix cancer, etc. Our medical oncologists are skilled and experienced in managing both solid tumors and homological disorders while maintaining adult and pediatric patients’ quality of life.

Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment approach under medical oncology, and it uses powerful drugs to find and destroy cancer cells throughout the body. Chemotherapy works by stopping or slowing the growth of body cells that divide and grow rapidly, which include cancer cells as well.

Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy, which is also known as biological therapy, is a personalized treatment approach in which the body’s immune cells are stimulated to launch an attack against cancer cells. In other words, immunotherapy stimulates the body’s natural defense system to combat and destroy cancer cells.

Targeted Therapy: As the name implies, targeted therapy targets specific proteins that are responsible for the growth, development, and spreading of cancer cells and regulate their growth.

Hormone Therapy: Hormone therapy uses specific drugs to block certain hormones or reduce their levels in the body to stop the growth of cancer cells or delay the disease’s progression.
