Procedures

A wide range of treatments and procedures are available at S L Raheja for effective cancer care and management.

Some of the notable treatments for cancer are:

  1. Radiation Therapy

    Radiation therapy uses high-energy, controlled radiation to treat cancer or to reduce the pain and other symptoms. S.L Raheja Hospital uses cutting edge equipment that can target the radiation beam directly and solely on the cancer cells, whilst leaving the surrounding healthy cells untouched.

  2.  Immunotherapy

    It is a form of treatment that uses substances manufactured by the body or in a laboratory to fight cancer by strengthening the body’s immune system. Some of the types of immunotherapy include oncolytic virus therapy, T-cell therapy, cancer vaccines and tumour-agnostic therapies.

  3. Bone Marrow

    This is a procedure used to collect the bone marrow located inside the bones and is used to diagnose bone and marrow diseases as well as some cancers.

  4. Chemotherapy

    This treatment involves using powerful chemicals or drugs to kill fast-growing cancer cells in the body.

  5. Hormonal Therapy

    Also known as endocrine therapy, this procedure helps reduce the cancer symptoms by either inhibiting the body’s ability to synthesize hormones or by interfering with the way hormones behave in the body.

  6. Cryotherapy

    This is a minimally invasive procedure which freezes the prostate tissue resulting in the death of cancer cells and is sometimes used as an alternative to prostatectomy (removal of the prostate gland)

  7.  Lumpectomy

    In this treatment, the “lump” or the breast tumour and some of the normal tissue surrounding it is removed.

  8. Mastectomy

    This is the removal of the entire breast as a way to prevent or treat breast cancer.

  9. Gamma Knife Radiosurgery

    It delivers a single, large dose of radiation to a specific region in the brain with surgical precision in order to stop the reproduction of cancer cells. The advantage of this method is that the absence of incision removes the risk of bleeding and infection and also results in reduced side effects.

  10. Colectomy

    Also known as bowel resection, this surgery removes part of or the entire colon and is used to treat conditions such as bowel obstruction, colon cancer, Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative colitis and others.

  11.  Brachytherapy

    This involves injecting radioactive material directly into the body and has fewer side-effects compared to external beam radiation. This method is used to treat many types of cancers including eye cancer, pancreatic cancer, prostate cancer, brain cancer and many others.

  12. Tomotherapy

    It is a form of IMRT which is used to treat multiple metastases simultaneously, besides treating luproceduresng, breast and prostate cancers.

One of the two main factors that cause cancer is a predisposition to developing cancer and the other one involves exposure to various types of triggers such as habitual smoking, excessive sun exposure, liver damage due to alcoholism or environmental toxins. Statistically, almost 40% of all cancers are preventable and can be avoided by thoughtful lifestyle changes.

Multiple lifestyle factors can influence the risk of developing cancer such as smoking, obesity, inactive lifestyle, exposure to UV radiation from the sun, alcohol and diet. Poor dietary habits are the cause of almost 30% of all types of cancers. Certain foods such as processed meats, fried foods, dairy and refined carbohydrates, sugar and alcohol can all increase the risk of developing cancer.

Oncologists at S.L. Raheja Hospital recommend important lifestyle changes and modified dietary habits to reduce the risk of developing cancer. Avoiding tobacco in all forms, limiting the intake of alcohol, and cutting down on red meat and processed foods are some of the diet modifications that can be extremely beneficial. Regular exercise to maintain optimum body weight and BMI and avoiding unnecessary sun exposure can reduce your overall risk of developing cancer.
