Comprehensive Oncology is the Dire Need for Cancer Treatment

Cancer is the leading cause of death across the globe. Since a long time, cancer has been a prevalent disease and the occurrence has always been on the rise. Fortunately, today science and technology have brought us close to cure. Patients feel powerless, scared and defeated once diagnosed with cancer. Often they don’t know where to turn for accurate information, help, and comfort.

The cancer care specialists of Al Zahra Cancer Center in Dubai offer advanced treatments and give personalized attention to each patient in a clean and positive environment. At Al Zahra Hospital, we provide a holistic and comprehensive approach for the treatment of most cancers so as to improve the overall health of the patient.

Comprehensive oncology is a conventional cancer therapy wherein the origin and the factors associated with cancer are thoroughly studied. Thereafter, cancer surgeons recommend a suitable treatment plan that provides relief from all the pains.

Reduce Cancer Tumor with Comprehensive Oncology

Cancer occurs when unhealthy cells accumulate in your body that affects the healthy body cells. There are many types of cancer treatments available that are given on the basis of the type of cancer you have and how advanced it is. Different treatment modalities such as surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and stem cell transplant are used to remove cancer cells from the body. These treatments are used for curing cancer of all types and at any stage.

In surgical treatment procedure, the surgeon removes cancer from your body. In radiation therapy, a high dosage of radiation is used to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. In chemotherapy, drugs are used to kill cancer cells. Immunotherapy is about making your immune system strong so that it can fight against cancer. In targeted therapy, the changes in cancer cells that help them grow, divide, and spread are targeted. And, hormone therapy is a treatment that slows or stops the growth of breast and prostate cancer cells that use hormones to grow.

Patients suffering from cancer face many symptoms and conditions caused by cancer such as pain, nausea, constipation, anorexia, cough, dyspnea, neuropathy, depression and anxiety. To combat these problems the oncology specialists often ask them to take concomitant medications. The cancer patients are often prescribed more concomitant medications than patients with other illnesses for two reasons: to reduce the disease related symptoms and use herbal medication electively.

Supportive Care

The main aim of the aggressive surgeries such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy is the long lasting survival of the patient. However, the quality of life gets adversely affected. Therapeutic practices and relaxation techniques should be adopted to respond to cancer treatment in a much better way.

Acupuncture, reflexology, meditation, yoga and group therapy to name a few, help in patient’s well-being. These therapies provide the patient with a sense of control and reduce the feeling of helplessness.

Comprehensive oncology helps the patient and their family achieve the quality of life along with the longevity of life. Cancer Care Specialists in Dubai adopts a holistic approach to treat the disease which reduces treatment related side effects, improves the immune system and speed up physical rehabilitation.
