Frequently Asked Questions
Who is an oncologist?
An oncologist is a medical professional who is specialized in diagnosing and treating cancer.
Why is regular screening necessary for early detection of cancer?
Our oncologists at Medicover Hospital recommend regular screening because it helps them to find any kind of health problem before symptoms appear. Our doctors recommend screening tests such as mammogram, colonoscopy. Early detection of cancer helps to get rid of cancer at an early stage.
How is cancer pain managed?
For a tumor that causes pain, removing or destroying all or part of the tumor with chemotherapy or radiation can help. Pain control often starts with medicine. Many drugs are used to treat pain, which the patient and their doctor determine and alter as pain level changes.
What is the difference between chemotherapy and radiation therapy?
Chemotherapy refers to cancer treatment medications administered via injections or tablets. A medical oncologist usually prescribes the medication, which circulates throughout the body. Radiation therapy, which is prescribed by a radiation oncologist, is treatment with rays produced by a linear accelerator or another radiation source. As the radiotherapy beams are focused on a very specific area of the body, the effects are limited to that area.
How long does a course of radiation therapy usually last?
Most radiation therapy is given daily, five days a week, for a period of one to eight weeks, depending on the disease and the treatment plan.
