According to the population based survey conducted by NCRP (National Cancer Registry Programme) around 700,000 – 900,000 new cases are diagnosed per year in India. Most of the cases are diagnosed in late stages, when only palliative cate or symptomatic treatment could be offered to the patients.
Systematic cancer screening is the need of time for India. India is a developing country with limited resources and very demanding health budget. We are still struggling to fight communicable diseases.
Cancer screening even though, is a major public health hazard in India, we need to wise fully allocate our budget for cancer screening. Cancer cervix and cancer breast are the most common cancers amongst Indian females. Early detection is possible in both these cancers and early detection directly reflects chances of cure in these cancers.
We strongly recommend cancer screening for breast to high risk subgroup (Daughter, sister, mother, Aunt of a Breast cancer patient)
Breast self-examination is easy and very effective tool to diagnose lump in breast very early. Digital Mammography remains the most effective radiological tool to diagnose lump in the breast. Yearly mammography is recommended for high risk females.
Genetic test shall detect chances of high risk females of getting breast cancer in lifetime and gaining more importance.
Cancer treatment mainly depends upon correct histopathology and immunohistochemistry markers. Today cancer treatment is different for each individual even though the primary diagnosis is same for them. This is because the immunohistochemistry is different for each individual. The cure and success of cancer treatment largely depends on its proper and correct typing of the tumors.
At GETWEL we are committed to provide the correct diagnosis with immunohistopathology from experts in the respective fields of oncology all across India and abroad.
Breast and colonic cancers have a definite hereditary background. These cancers carry a risk of about 30 % to appear in relatives of a diagnosed case of cancer. This risk can be predicted to certain extent in families with the help of genetic and Molecular tests.
Cancer treatment is a comprehensive treatment management problem. At GETWEL the policy is to discuss each and every case with the experts from Tata memorial Hospital in the fields of Medical oncology, Radiation Oncology and surgical oncology.
Once the case is thoroughly discussed with the experts in the respective fields the summary of recommendations is told to the patient and the relatives in their own language with approximate expenses. If the patient wishes to get operated from a surgeon trained and qualified from Tata memorial Hospital, it is arranged for the patient at the hospital of his choice. Same is true for chemotherapy and the radiation therapy.
Cancer chemotherapy is rapidly changing and fast updating science. At GETWEL the policy is to get tied up with the specialist in respective fields across India and Abroad. This is an era of communication and virtual tours. We give all the details of the patients to the experts across the globe and take their protocols in writing .The same treatment protocols are implemented at our center, thus assuring the best treatment without actually moving out from their place.
Radiation therapy is changed from the era of Cobalt therapy to the High voltage X rays (Linear accelerators) to proton beam therapy. If the patient is affording the best treatment it is their moral right to get the best available.
The breasts also contain lymph vessels. These vessels are connected to small, round masses of tissue called lymph nodes. Groups of lymph nodes are near the breast in the underarm (axilla), above the collarbone, and in the chest behind the breastbone.
Previously cancer treatment was meant by surgery, even in inoperable cases it used to be open and close issue most of the times to label it as inoperable cancer. Now with the advent of better modalities of investigations, now it is easy to judge whether the case is going to be operable or inoperable .The surgeries have become more precise and minimally invasive.
At GETWEL we respect organs and so organ preservation is our moto. Whenever possible one should try and preserve organs with the help of advancements in the fields of medical oncology and the radiation oncology.
Cancer treatment is not complete without the palliative care wing. We are tied up with some hospices, who are pioneers in the field of cancer palliative care.
