Cancer is a class of diseases in which a group of cells display uncontrolled growth, invasion (intrusion on and destruction of adjacent tissues), and sometimes metastasis (spread to other locations in the body via lymph or blood). These three malignant properties of cancers differentiate them from benign tumors, which are self-limited, and do not invade or metastasize. Most cancers form a tumor but some, like leukemia, do not.
Once you discover that you have been diagnosed with cancer, seeking rapid and definitive cancer treatment is critical to surviving and ultimately beating the cancer. Finding a good oncologist for your Cancer treatment is an extremely important task. Finding an oncologist can be time-consuming, but selecting a trained oncologist for your cancer treatment that is able to coordinate care among several medical professionals is the key to managing your cancer and increasing your chances of becoming a true cancer survivor.
Oncologists are medical doctors that have finished medical school and completed a three-year residency in internal medicine. After that they have completed a fellowship of one to three years in duration that allows them to specialize in the practice of oncology. Oncologists in a private practice setting are usually board certified in internal medicine, oncology, hematology or some combination of all three. If you are obtaining cancer treatment in a hospital setting, your care may be directed by an oncology fellow. An oncology fellow is a physician who has already completed medical residency but who is still training to become an oncologist. Even if your care is primarily directed by an oncology fellow, important decisions will be discussed with a board certified oncologist.
Generally, your oncologist is responsible for three very important things-
- diagnosing and evaluating the specific type of cancer,
- choosing and administering chemotherapy and
- coordinating care with other physicians that treat cancer.
The first critical duty of an oncologist is characterize the cancer as specifically and accurately as possible. Once, this is done, the proper cancer treatment can be chosen.
As it is important to choose a physician with experience in treating your specific cancer, it is also just as important to choose a hospital that has experience.
Make sure that the hospital where you choose your cancer treatment in India has the following facilities -
A pathology lab, diagnostic lab, and blood bank
24-hour physician staffing
A tumor board
Social services department
Respiratory therapies, physical therapists, and rehabilitation services
Advanced diagnostic equipment (magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), positive electron tomography (PET), etc.)
Advanced therapeutic equipment (radiation therapy, laser treatments, etc.)
