Radiotherapy is a term used to describe treatment of cancer using radiation. Cancer can be treated in several ways - surgery, radiation (radiotherapy), drugs (chemotherapy), agents that modify the immune system (biological therapy or immunotherapy) Radiotherapy uses radiation to damage and kill cancer cells. Read more about How Radiotherapy Works. Radiotherapy is considered a local treatment because it only acts on the area on which it is delivered. Radiotherapy plays a very important role in the treatment of lymphomas.+ Read More

What are cancers of the head and neck?
Cancers that are known collectively as head and neck cancers usually begin in the squamous cells that line the moist, mucosal surfaces inside the head and neck (for example, inside the mouth, the nose, and the throat). These squamous cell cancers are often referred to as squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck. Head and neck cancers can also begin in the salivary glands, but salivary gland cancers are relatively uncommon. Salivary glands contain many different types of cells that can become cancerous, so there are many different types of salivary gland cancer.
Cancers of the head and neck are further categorized by the area of the head or neck in which they begin. These areas are described below and labeled in the image of head and neck cancer regions.
Oral cavity: Includes the lips, the front two-thirds of the tongue, the gums, the lining inside the cheeks and lips, the floor (bottom) of the mouth under the tongue, the hard palate (bony top of the mouth), and the small area of the gum behind the wisdom teeth.
Pharynx: The pharynx (throat) is a hollow tube about 5 inches long that starts behind the nose and leads to the esophagus. It has three parts: the nasopharynx (the upper part of the pharynx, behind the nose); the oropharynx (the middle part of the pharynx, including the soft palate [the back of the mouth], the base of the tongue, and the tonsils); the hypopharynx (the lower part of the pharynx).
Larynx: The larynx, also called the voicebox, is a short passageway formed by cartilage just below the pharynx in the neck. The larynx contains the vocal cords. It also has a small piece of tissue, called the epiglottis, which moves to cover the larynx to prevent food from entering the air passages.
Paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity: The paranasal sinuses are small hollow spaces in the bones of the head surrounding the nose. The nasal cavity is the hollow space inside the nose.
Salivary glands: The major salivary glands are in the floor of the mouth and near the jawbone. The salivary glands produce saliva.
Head and neck cancer regions. Illustrates location of paranasal sinuses, nasal cavity, oral cavity, tongue, salivary glands, larynx, and pharynx (including the nasopharynx, oropharynx, and hypopharynx).
Head and neck cancer regions. Illustrates location of paranasal sinuses, nasal cavity, oral cavity, tongue, salivary glands, larynx, and pharynx (including the nasopharynx, oropharynx, and hypopharynx).
Cancers of the brain, the eye, the esophagus, and the thyroid gland, as well as those of the scalp, skin, muscles, and bones of the head and neck, are not usually classified as head and neck cancers.
Sometimes, cancerous squamous cells can be found in the lymph nodes of the upper neck when there is no evidence of cancer in other parts of the head and neck .When this happens, the cancer is called metastatic squamous neck cancer with unknown (occult) primary. More information about this cancer type can be found in Metastatic Squamous Neck Cancer with Occult Primary.

Urinary Bladder Cancer

It is a rare but a difficult cancer to treat because ofnthe important organ i.e. urinary bladder that is involved which is vital for control and evacuation of urine.
It usually presents as painless hematuroia –passing blood in the urine stream. It also laeds to pain in the lower abdomen and retention of urine in advanced cases.
The first sight of blood or blood tinged urine should aleretb the patient and physician to work up for the causew of the bleeding leading to adiagnosis of bladder cancer.
Once thers is a suspicion of bladder cancvert a cystocsopy is the first intervention.
This modality of direct visualization of the interior of the bladder will give access to biopsy and complete removal if the tumor is very small. If the Patient has a small and localised tumor that all is what is required.
Once a diagnosis is confirmed the next step is to stage the disease by C.T.scan and or an MRI scan of the abdomen.
TREATMENT
It is treated according to the extent of the disease (staging). Limited stage or volume disease are treated by some form of local excision guided by cystoscopy.
The vaccine BCG,which is usewd to treat PREVENT TUBERCULOSIS HAS SPECIAL PLACE IN THE TREATMENT OF BLADDER CANCER.
After removal of a localised tumor the bladder is instilled with this vaccine periodically over a period of three to six months.
Those tumors which are deeply invasive and large are usually treated by complete removal of the urinary bladder. after removal of the bladder the urinary stream is diverted via a intestinal conduit to the external collecting device .This form of diversion is now being replaced by a NEW FORM OF SURGICAL DIVERSION CALLED AS “ORTHOTOPIC NEOBLADDER”. Here a segment of patients own intestine is used to reconstruct a new bladder and is placed in place of his/her original urinary bladder so that the patient is able to allow the patient to pass urine by his/her natural passage through the external meatus.
We have done the largest number orthotopic neobladder reconstructions in Bangalore. The success rates are amazingly high and we continue to set high standards in the field of bladder surgeries.
The role of chemotherapy and radiotherapy in various combinations is being tested to avoid complete removal the bladder for large and deeply infiltrating tumors.

Have you ever been to the gynecologist and been told you need a procedure for further evaluation of a GYN problem? Millions of women each year face the uncertainty of having a gynecological procedure or surgery performed. Learn about these common GYN procedures and surgeries before you need them and you’ll be one step ahead when your gynecologist says you need further evaluation of your problem.
Colposcopy- Colposcopy is a diagnostic tool used for further evaluation of abnormal Pap smears. This procedure provides a non-surgical way for your physician to visualize your cervix.
Cyrosurgery- Cervical cryosurgery or cryotherapy is a gynecological treatment that freezes a section of the cervix. Cryosurgery destroys abnormal cervical cells that show changes that may lead to cancer. These changes are called precancerous cells. Your gynecologist may use the term cervical dysplasia to describe your condition.
LEEP Procedure- The loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP) is used when there is an indication of abnormal cells on the surface of the cervix.
Hysteroscopy- Hysteroscopy provides a way for your physician to look inside your uterus. A hysteroscope is a thin, telescope-like instrument that is inserted into the uterus through the vagina and cervix. This tool often helps a physician diagnose or treat a uterine problem. Read more…
Pelvic laparoscopy- Laparoscopy is usually performed under general anesthesia; however, it can be performed with other types of anesthesia that permit the patient to remain awake. The typical pelvic laparoscopy involves a small (1/2" to 3/4") incision in the belly button or lower abdomen. Read more…
D&C- Often used to diagnose or treat abnormal uterine bleeding, the D&C is one of the most common GYN operative procedures. Dilation and Curettage also provides important information about whether uterine cancer is present.

Cancer Detection

One of the most important factors to consider when deciding whether or not to order cancer screening is the patient's life expectancy. "If a patient has other illnesses and only has a five-year life expectancy, then it doesn't make sense to screen them for breast cancer or another cancer when we know from research that patients so not benefit from screening for at least five years," the author said.
For example, a very healthy and active 80 year-old who could be expected to live possibly 13 years longer, is more likely to be helped by cancer screening than a 70-year-old who has severe congestive heart failure along with other major health problems who is unlikely to reach age 75.
The study also includes charts that doctors can use to estimate life expectancy and the likelihood that a patient will benefit from screening for colorectal can breast cancer or cervical cancer.
The risks and burdens of every screening test should be considered carefully before being ordered. Screening test results can be inaccurate or inconclusive necessitating further, often invasive testing such as biopsy and additional stress for the patient. Patients with advanced illnesses and limited life expectancies can suffer unnecessary harm and complications from finding an early cancer and having surgery or other invasive treatments. Many cancers found early through screening tests would not have progressed quickly enough to affect these patients during their limited lifetime.
In the case of those patients with dementia, a screening test and work-up can be a very traumatic and scary experience. It may be traumatic enough to significantly decrease their quality of life.
Ultimately the decision, that any physician should respect to have a screening test or not should be the patients. It is very important that physicians discuss both the risks and the benefits of screening tests and respect the decision the patient makes. Many patients will get relief and piece of mind from having a screening test, while others may not want to have a test if they can avoid it at all no matter the risk.

Endoscopy

Get Latest Price

The term "endoscopy" refers to any technique that lets doctors insert an endoscope through an opening in the body (for example, the mouth, nose, or rectum) to allow them to look around and either assure that everything is in order, or identify -– and sometimes fix -– a problem.
The endoscope itself is a thin, flexible tube with fiberoptic light source and a tiny video camera on the tip. In addition to cameras, endoscopes have at least one channel through which tiny tools can be passed. These tools can be used to biopsy an area, control bleeding, remove polyps, stretch narrowed areas and many other therapies.
Common endoscopic procedures include upper GI endoscopy (sometimes referred to as an EGD, which stands for esophagogastroduodenoscopy) and colonoscopy.
In an upper GI endoscopy, the doctor can examine the esophagus, the stomach, and about 3/4 of the duodenum (the first section of the small intestine).
In a colonoscopy, the doctor examines the inside of the rectum and the large intestine (the colon).
Endoscopes can also be inserted through a small incision during surgery. Arthroscopy and laparoscopy are examples of surgical procedures that involve endoscopes.

Palliative care programs were initially started to palliate the symptoms of cancer and the side effects of cancer treatments. Palliative care is now being offered to many other patients with chronic illnesses but the majority of patients treated in palliative care programs nationwide are still cancer patients.
The benefits of palliative care for cancer patients is significant. Cancers often cause distressing symptoms that need expert care. Symptoms such as pain, shortness of breath, nausea and/or vomiting, and constipation may be cancer related and each have a negative impact on quality of life. Palliative care teams are specially trained to deal with these, and other, distressing symptoms.
Even the treatments used to treat cancer can be considered palliative. Chemotherapy and radiation can reduce tumor size and thereby reduce symptoms of disease. Doctors will sometimes recommend chemotherapy and/or radiation intended to increase comfort and decrease symptoms of disease, termed palliative chemotherapy or palliative radiation. This type of palliative treatment is not intended to cure cancer, rather to improve quality of life.
Treating cancers with chemotherapy, radiation, hormones, and other modules of treatments can create other problems that need to be dealt with. Nausea and vomiting, appetite loss, oral thrush infections, skin problems, and decreased sexual function are just some of the symptoms that can result from cancer treatment. Expert palliative care can often times help patients tolerate cancer treatment for longer periods of time with less discomfort.
Research has shown that cancer patients who receive palliative care actually live longer. Once thought to be strictly end-of-life care, palliative care is now reaching patients much earlier. Palliative care teams across the nation are pushing for palliative care to begin at the time of cancer diagnosis. The longer a cancer patient and his loved one have with a palliative care team, the more likely he is to live longer, receive the emotional and spiritual support he needs, and plan ahead for his future.

The cranial base is the point where all of the critical blood vessels and nerves enter and exit the skull. It is one of the most delicate and complex areas of the human body. Diseases of this region include tumors and defects from trauma or present since birth. Symptoms of conditions in the skull base are location-specific and will very much depend upon the surrounding structures that are invaded or compressed by a tumor. Thus, pituitary tumors can cause partial blindness and hormonal dysfunction. Acoustic neuromas can produce deafness, facial paralysis and body weakness.
Diagnosis of a skull base disorder begins with a complete history and full neurological examination. A detailed description of signs and symptoms along with time and duration of onset helps to determine urgency for treatment. Diagnostic tests, including CT scans and MRIs, are required on almost all cases. Additional modalities such as angiography (traditional digital subtraction and CT angiography) might also be required if critical vascular structures are near to the area in question.
We also have access to more advanced MR imaging techniques including functional, perfusion, and quantitative flow studies, if the proper treatment requires this information. In case of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak, injection of dye through a lumbar puncture might also be necessary to locate the site of leakage.
Ultimately, a tissue sample obtained through surgery is the only way to confirm a diagnosis.
