Frequently Asked Questions

What is Medical Oncology, and what does it involve?

Medical Oncology is a branch of oncology that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of Cancer using systemic Therapies such as Chemotherapy, Targeted Therapy, Immunotherapy, and Biological Therapy. Medical Oncologists are specialized Physicians who oversee the medical management of Cancer patients, working in collaboration with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care.

How does Chemotherapy work, and what are its side effects?

Chemotherapy works by targeting rapidly dividing cancer cells throughout the body, inhibiting their growth and causing cell death. However, Chemotherapy can also affect normal, healthy cells, leading to side effects such as Nausea, Vomiting, Hair Loss, Fatigue, and increased susceptibility to infections. The severity and duration of side effects vary depending on the type and dose of chemotherapy drugs used, as well as individual patient factors.

What are Targeted Therapies, and how are they different from traditional Chemotherapy?

Targeted Therapies are drugs that specifically target the molecular abnormalities or genetic mutations present in cancer cells, disrupting their growth and survival pathways. Unlike traditional Chemotherapy, which kills both cancerous and healthy cells indiscriminately, targeted therapies are designed to selectively attack cancer cells while minimizing harm to normal tissues. This targeted approach can lead to more effective treatment with fewer side effects.

Can Targeted Therapy be used for all types of Cancer?

Targeted Therapies are primarily used for Cancers that have specific genetic mutations or molecular abnormalities that can be targeted by these drugs. While targeted therapies have shown significant success in certain types of Cancer, they may not be effective for all patients or cancer types. Genetic testing and molecular profiling are often used to identify patients who are most likely to benefit from targeted therapy.

What is Immunotherapy, and how does it boost the Immune system to fight Cancer?

Immunotherapy, also known as Biological Therapy, harnesses the body's own immune system to recognize and attack cancer cells. These drugs work by enhancing the immune response against cancer, either by activating immune cells or blocking immune checkpoints that inhibit their function. Immunotherapy has shown promising results in treating various types of cancer, often leading to durable responses and improved survival outcomes.

Are there any new developments or advancements in Cancer treatment?

Yes, there are constant advancements and innovations in cancer treatment, including new drugs, treatment approaches, and technologies. These developments may include Targeted Therapies tailored to specific Genetic Mutations, Immunotherapies that modulate the immune system's response to cancer, and precision medicine approaches that personalize treatment based on individual patient characteristics. Clinical trials and ongoing research play a crucial role in driving these advancements forward.

How is treatment tailored to the individual needs of each patient?

Treatment plans are tailored to each patient's unique diagnosis, stage of cancer, overall health status, and personal preferences. Medical Oncologists consider various factors when developing treatment plans, including the type and location of cancer, genetic mutations, previous treatments, and potential side effects. This personalized approach ensures that patients receive the most appropriate and effective treatments for their specific circumstances.

What Supportive Care Services are available for Cancer patients?

BMCHRC offers a comprehensive range of supportive care services to address the physical, emotional, and practical needs of cancer patients and their families.

Our goal is to provide holistic care that promotes the overall well-being and quality of life of our patients.

How can I manage the side effects of Cancer treatment?

Our team works closely with patients to develop personalized strategies for managing side effects and improving quality of life during treatment. We provide education, resources, and ongoing support to help patients navigate their cancer journey with minimal discomfort and maximum well-being.

What role does Nutrition play in Cancer care?

Nutrition plays a crucial role in supporting overall health and well-being during cancer treatment. A balanced diet rich in nutrients can help maintain strength, manage side effects, and support the body's healing process. Our registered dietitians work with patients to develop personalized nutrition plans tailored to their unique dietary needs and treatment goals, providing guidance and support to ensure optimal nutrition throughout their cancer journey.
