Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Cancers are recognized due to the signs or symptoms that occur after a particular stage or through screening. Neither of these leads to exact diagnosis of the disease and its type, it mainly requires examination of a tissue sample obtained generally by biopsy, by a pathologist. Cancer can be treated by many methods such as surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy and synthetic lethality. People suffering from Cancer can be investigated through medical tests which includes blood tests, X-raysCT scans and endoscopy. The tissue diagnosis from the biopsy indicates the type of cell that proliferates through its histological grade, genetic abnormalities and other features.  All together it gives useful information about the molecular changes such as mutations, fusion genes and numerical chromosome to estimate  the prognosis inorder to choose the best treatment. Cytogenetics and immunohistochemistry are the other common tissue tests. The removal of cancer without damaging the other parts of the body (by achieving cure with near-zero adverse effects) is the main goal of the treatment. The type of treatment depends on the type of cancer the patient is suffering from and its stage. Most of the people with Cancer have a combination of treatments such as surgery with chemotherapy or radiation therapy, Immunotherapy, targeted therapy or hormone therapy.
