Gynecologic cancers affect a woman’s reproductive organs, including cervix, uterus, ovaries, Fallopian tubes, vagina and vulva.Gynecologic oncologists offer an integrated approach to the diagnosis and surgical management of women's cancers and complex benign gynecologic diseases.
Cancer in childhood is uncommon. Out of 10,000 normal children, one will develop cancer during their childhood. Pediatric oncology is a stimulating field with a multitude of research opportunities and discoveries every day.
A tumor is an abnormal growth of body tissue. Tumors can be cancerous (malignant) or noncancerous (benign).A tumor, also known as a neoplasm, is an abnormal mass of tissue that may be solid or fluid-filled.
Understanding cancer, and the complex biological systems that underlie its development, is essential if we are to identify new ways of treating the disease. Cancer occurs when cells develop changes that allow them to grow uncontrollably.
Genomics has generated a wealth of data that is now being used to identify additional molecular alterations associated with cancer development.Cancer develops due to DNA mutations and epigenetic alterations that accumulate randomly.
Cancer can occur anywhere in the body. Cancer is based on the location of cancer cells occur in particular organ.Once an organ is completely affected by the Cancer then the cancer cells are free to move and affect surrounding cells.Till date more than 200 types of the cancers have been identified by the researchers.
Cancer therapy is personalised, which is why treatments can vary. The choice of treatment is influenced by the location of the tumour, distribution, cell type and the patient’s overall condition as well as possible other illnesses.
A biopsy is a way of diagnosing diseases.It is a procedure to remove a piece of tissue or a sample of cells from your body so that it can be analyzed in a laboratory. Tissue or cell samples can be taken from almost any part of the body. How samples are taken depends on where the tumor is and what type of cancer is suspected.
Nanoscale devices are one hundred to ten thousand times smaller than human cells. Nanotechnology cancer treatments may lead to destroying cancer tumors with minimal damage to healthy tissue and organs, as well as the detection and elimination of cancer cells before they form tumors.
