Cancer Treatment Modalities
There are many types of treatments, depending on the type of cancer and how advanced it is. The following are the treatments for cancer available at Vejthani Cancer Center. Surgery: A foundation treatment method which has been used and is still used today. It is the standard treatment to remove cancer from the body, especially in the very first phase because the spread of cancer cells is limited to the particular, affected area. Radiotherapy or Radiation Therapy: is a treatment which uses radiation to control or kill cancer cells. Radiation therapy may be curative in a number of types of cancer if they are localized to one area of the body. New technique of Radiation Therapy is Intensity-Modulated radiation therapy (IMRT). IMRT is an advanced mode of high precision radiotherapy that uses computer control to deliver precise radiation doses at specific areas of cancer. With this new technique (IMRT), the side effects of radiation are minimized. Chemotherapy:is a type of treatment that uses one or more medications as part of standardized chemotherapy regimen. Chemotherapy can work throughout the body. It may be given with a curative intent before surgery. “Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy” is used to shrink cancer mass until it is small enough to be removed by surgery. New data shows that whoever has undergone tumor removal by neoadjuvant chemotherapy will have a better outcome and it can prolong life and reduce symptoms. Hormonal Therapy: A therapy that lowers or increases the amount of hormones in the body to stop or slow down the growth or spread of the illness, because some hormones encourage the growth of some cancers. This method treats breast, prostate and thyroid cancer. Targeted Therapy or Molecular Targeted Therapy: is one of the major modalities of medications that uses molecular targeted therapy which blocks the growth of cancer cells by interfering with specific targeted molecules that cancer cells need for growth and survival. Molecular Targeted Therapy may be oral small molecular inhibitor or intravenous monoclonal antibodies. Before the doctor prescribes targeted therapy, the tissue or blood is sent for molecular testing “the target” of this treatment before starting targeted therapy. Immunotherapy: is a group of innovative treatments that enhances our immunity to fight or kill cancer cells. Immunotherapy may be vaccines, T-Cell engineering or monoclonal antibodies that activate our T-Cell to fight our illness. Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplantation: These two cancer treatment types can be isolated from the patient’s body or can be taken from a donor. In present studies, the stem cell transplantation is usually used to work against only a few types of cancer such as leukemia, lymphoma and multiple myeloma.
