Depending on the type of cells in the breast, we find out the type of breast cancer. Breast cancer may affect both men and women.

Treatment Options for Oral Cancer by Stage and Type

 Dr Sayan Paul, Dr Vikash Kumar Agarwal   |    May 20, 2022

Oral cancer is the most common cancer in males in India. Every 20 out of 1,00,000 individuals are reportedly suffering from oral cancer. Smoking and tobacco chewing is the main cause of oral cancers in India. Cancers related to the lips, tongue, cheeks, regions in the floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, sinuses, and pharynx are all examples of oral cancer. If not recognised and treated promptly, it can be fatal. Oral cancer can be cured completely when it is detected early. However, most people are diagnosed when their ailment is too advanced to be adequately treated. If you visit your doctor on a regular basis and learn how to recognise abnormal changes, you will have a far greater chance of receiving an early diagnosis.

 Dr Selvi Radhakrishna, Dr Asha Reddy    |    Apr 28, 2022

The greatest rise in the incidence of breast cancer has been noted in developing nations, particularly in India. The rising incidence of breast cancer in India is likely due to further changes in lifestyle factors such as childbearing and dietary habits. Although it is lower than in the west, mortality is higher in India. This may be due to the late presentation stage and disparities in cancer care.

Spatially Fractionated Radiation Therapy

Spatially Fractionated Radiation Therapy Innovative Approaches for Local Immunomodulation in Advanced Cancer Stages

 Dr Shankar Vangipuram, Radiation Oncologist    |    Apr 22, 2022

The art of oncology is what many oncologists love about practising, but at the same time it is also difficult to learn. I had struggled with this over the last two decades, ever since I started my practice in radiation oncology, asking my contemporary colleagues, 'Why are you choosing this particular option when there were several different options'. The answer would often be, 'That's what I have had the most experience with.' As a result, as a young oncologist, I often had no idea which treatment was the best for all patients.

Oncological Imaging and Patient Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic

 Dr Bagyam Raghavan   |    Apr 15, 2022

The COVID- 19 Pandemic has imposed on clinicians a scenario -never seen before - where accepted guidelines and treatment norms are challenged because of the tremendous strain on health care resources. Moreover, because of their systemic immunosuppressive state caused by the malignancy and anticancer treatments, such as chemotherapy, targeted therapy and immunotherapy, cancer patients are more susceptible to COVID-19. As a result, they have a higher incidence of life-threatening events such as severe pneumonia, acute respiratory distress syndrome & cytokine storm, causing multi-organ failure and death.

Parotid Tumors: Scarless Mini - Incision Parotidectomy

 Dr Satish Nair    |    Apr 08, 2022

The parotid gland is one of the major salivary glands (a gland that produces saliva) located behind the jaw (below the ear lobule). The facial nerve (a nerve that supplies the face) traverses between the superficial and deep parts of the parotid gland. Therefore, the conditions that affect the parotid gland can cause weakness of the facial nerve due to the proximity of the nerve to this gland.

Cervical Cancer Prevention Care

Cervical Cancer: Risk Factors and Prevention Care

 Dr Meenakshi Thiagarajan   |    Apr 01, 2022

Cervical cancer affects the cervix, the lower part of the womb. It is the second most common cancer in India in women, accounting for 22.86% of all cancer cases in women and 12% of all cancer cases in men and women. One woman dies of cervical cancer every 8 minutes in India, and close to 70% of women who have cervical cancer in India will die for various reasons such as lack of health infrastructure to treat this disease. So many Indian women have cervical cancer, yet there is not enough infrastructure to treat it. This results in long queues due to which if a woman is diagnosed with cervical cancer, she will likely die before getting diagnosed or get the necessary treatment post diagnosis.
