Oncology Case Reports

Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with study of tumor and cancer. In the recent past there has been a lot of research work going on its treatment.

Surgery: It is often implemented to remove a tumor completely. Occasionally surgery increases the chance of survival, even if the tumor is not completely removed, which is also referred to as debulking (reducing the amount of tumor tissue). Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy: They are used as a first line radical therapy in number of malignancies. They are also used in adjuvant therapy i.e. when the macroscopic tumor has been removed surgically, but there may be chance of reoccurrence. They are generally used in palliation. Its aim is to improve the quality of life and prolong it. Hormonal Therapy: It involves manipulation of the endocrine system, through exogenous administration of particular hormones, specifically steroid hormones or drugs which inhibit the production or activity of such hormones. Steroid hormones are known to be powerful drivers for gene expression in certain cancer cells. Changing the levels or activity of certain hormones can cause the cancers to cease growing or may even undergo cell death. Monoclonal Antibody Treatment: These are new innovations in treatment of cancer. These are laboratory produced molecule which is carefully engineered to attach to certain specific cancer cells. These monoclonal antibodies mimic the antibodies that are naturally produced by the immune system as a response to germs, vaccines and other invaders. They are being generally used in the treatment of lymphoma and breast cancer.
