Patients Stories


There are several treatment options available in medical oncology. Some of them are:

  • Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy involves using drugs to kill the cancer cells.
  • Immunotherapy: Immunotherapy involves using drugs that make the cancerous cells more vulnerable to the immune system.
  • Targeted Therapy: This therapy involves using drugs that target specific vital mechanisms of cancer cells, thereby preventing their growth.
  • Hormonal therapy: These drugs are used against cancers that are hormone-sensitive or hormone-dependent.

Chemotherapy is one of the important treatment options in the management of cancer. As soon as the cancer is diagnosed, the doctor develops a treatment strategy for the patient based on the type and stage of the cancer. If the patient delays or stops the treatment, cancer may progress to the next stage, and more aggressive treatment is required.

The side effects of treatment in medical oncology are based on the type and stage of cancer and the type of treatment options used. Some of the common side effects are:

  • Hair loss
  • Easy bruising and bleeding
  • Infection and fatigue
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea and constipation
  • Anemia (low red blood cell counts)
  • Mouth, tongue, and throat problems, such as pain with swallowing
  • Neurological problems such as tingling, numbness, and pain
  • Skin (dry skin) and nail (color) changes
  • Alteration in concentration and focus
  • Changes in weight and appetite
  • Urine and bladder changes
  • Kidney problems
  • Fertility problems
  • Changes in mood, libido, and sexual function

The patients may require around 6-12 months to completely recover from the side effects of chemotherapy. To improve the speed of therapy, the oncologists advise the patients to enroll themselves in the rehabilitation program. Several activities in the rehabilitation center, such as yoga, meditation, exercise, and psychological and diet counseling, assist the patient in improving their quality of life and managing the side effects of chemotherapy.
