Cancer treatments are mostly dependent on the type of cancers people come up with, and how far the cancer has spread in the body, which is called the stage. When recommending treatment, doctors will keep in mind both age and other health problems people may have. With Dr. S. Shanmugasundaram., M.B.B.S., M.S., M.C.H. (Oncology), at BSM Hospital, sometimes treatments are meant to cure the cancer. Other times, our goal is to stop the cancer from spreading further. Some treatments may be given to reduce side effects of other treatments and make patients more comfortable, which is called palliative care. Palliative care can be given at any stage of cancer treatment, even if it’s treatable, and accordingly treatment plans may change over time.
We Serve the Best
We offer curative cancer treatments and therapies to eliminate cancer, which is intended to cure, these may also include palliative and supportive care to manage symptoms and side effects.
Palliative cancer treatments are given, if a cure for cancer is not possible. This does not mean that the cancer cannot be treated and controlled for a certain period of time.
By our treatments, we help people relieve symptoms and side effects for as long as possible. Our goal of palliative cancer treatment is to help them live as well as possible for as long as possible.
