Welcome to Vikram Hospitals, where we are committed to providing exceptional care and treatment in the field of oncology. Cancer is a complex and challenging disease, and our dedicated team of experts at Vikram Hospitals is here to offer comprehensive oncology services to patients and their families. In this extensive guide, we will delve into various aspects of oncology, from understanding the basics of cancer to the advanced treatments and services available at Vikram Hospitals.

Understanding Oncology

Oncology is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells in the body. It can occur in virtually any organ or tissue and may develop for various reasons, including genetic factors, environmental exposures, and lifestyle choices.

Types of Cancer

Cancer can manifest in numerous forms, each with its own unique characteristics and treatment approaches. Some common types of cancer include:

  • Breast Cancer: Affects the breast tissue and is one of the most common cancers in women.
  • Lung Cancer: Primarily associated with tobacco smoke but can also occur in non-smokers.
  • Prostate Cancer: Affects the prostate gland in men and is one of the leading cancers in men worldwide.
  • Colon and Rectal Cancer: Develops in the colon or rectum and is often referred to as colorectal cancer.
  • Leukemia: A type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow, leading to the overproduction of abnormal blood cells.
  • Ovarian Cancer: Occurs in the ovaries of women and is often diagnosed in advanced stages.

These are just a few examples of the many types of cancer that exist. Each type requires specialized knowledge and expertise for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Diagnosis and Staging

Diagnosing cancer is a critical step in determining the appropriate course of treatment. Oncologists use a variety of methods to diagnose cancer, including:

  • Imaging Tests: Such as X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and PET scans, to visualize the tumor and its location.
  • Biopsy: A procedure in which a small sample of tissue is removed and examined under a microscope to confirm the presence of cancer cells.
  • Blood Tests: To check for abnormal levels of certain substances in the blood, which can indicate the presence of cancer.

Once cancer is diagnosed, it is crucial to determine its stage. Staging helps oncologists understand how far the cancer has progressed and whether it has spread to other parts of the body. Staging is typically done using the TNM system, which stands for:

  • Tumor (T): Describes the size and extent of the primary tumor.
  • Node (N): Indicates whether cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes.
  • Metastasis (M): Refers to the presence of cancer that has spread to distant parts of the body.

Staging helps oncologists plan the most appropriate treatment approach, which may include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or a combination of these treatments.
