Various Treatment for Cancer
Palliative care is the treatment which attempts to make the patient feel better and may or may not be combined with an attempt to attack the cancer. Its primary goal is to improve patient’s quality of life. Palliative care includes action to reduce the physical, emotional, spiritual, and psycho-social distress experienced by people with cancer.
Surgery is the primary method of treatment of most isolated solid cancers and may play a role in palliation and prolongation of survival. It is typically an important part of making the definitive diagnosis and staging the tumor as biopsies are usually required. In localized cancer surgery typically attempts to remove the entire mass along with, in certain cases, the lymph nodes in the area. For some types of cancer this is all that is needed to eliminate the cancer.
Chemotherapy in addition to surgery has proven useful in a number of different cancer types including: breast cancer, colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, osteogenic sarcoma, testicular cancer, ovarian cancer, and certain lung cancers. The effectiveness of chemotherapy is often limited by toxicity to other tissues in the body.
Radiation therapy involves the use of ionizing radiation in an attempt to either cure or improve the symptoms of cancer. It is used in about half of all cases and the radiation can be from either internal sources in the form of brachytherapy or external sources. Radiation is typically used in addition to surgery and or chemotherapy but for certain types of cancer such as early head and neck cancer may be used alone. For painful bone metastasis it has been found to be effective in about 70% of people.
Immunotherapy aims to increase the body’s immunity to fight against the tumor. Local immunotherapy injects a treatment into an affected area, for example, to cause inflammation that causes a tumor to shrink. Immunotherapy can also be considered non-specific if it improves cancer-fighting abilities by stimulating the entire immune system, and it can be considered targeted if the treatment specifically tells the immune system to destroy cancer cells. These therapies are relatively young, but researchers have had success with treatments that introduce antibodies to the body that inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells.
Complementary and alternative cancer treatments are a diverse group of health care systems, practices, and products that are not part of conventional medicine. “Complementary medicine” is used along with the conventional therapies. It makes the person with cancer feel better and improve quality of life. “Alternative medicine” is used instead of the conventional medicine or in the place of the conventional medicine. These treatments help the patient to cope with his cancer and fight against the cancer.
