Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women worldwide. When a lesion is visible with the naked eye, conization is contraindicated, and a cervical biopsy will usually provide the diagnosis. Screening tests can help detect cervical cancer and precancerous cells that may one day develop into cervical cancer. The diagnosis leads to the treatment and management of the disease.

Lung cancer screening is a process that’s used to detect the presence of lung cancer in otherwise healthy people with a high risk of lung cancer. The goal of lung cancer screening is to detect lung cancer at a very early stage — when it’s more likely to be cured. By the time lung cancer signs and symptoms develop, the cancer is usually too advanced for curative treatment. Studies show lung cancer screening reduces the risk of dying of lung cancer.

Dr Balaji Ramani, Senior Consultant, Oncology, MGM Cancer Institute, Chennai has talked how lung cancer is the leading cause of deaths in India & how the early diagnosis can be helpful in saving lives.

If you were to be diagnosed with cancer, how do you think you would feel? It would depend on the stage of cancer of course, but there’s a good chance that no matter the details, the word “cancer” would make the diagnosis much more frightening. Frightening enough, in fact, to do you as much harm, or more, than the disease itself.

There has been a lot of progress in medical science and more options now available than there were even 5 years ago. Today doctors better understand how to find many cancers in the early stages. They also have more treatments to try if one doesn’t work.

Dr Balaji Ramani, Senior Consultant, Oncology, at MGM Cancer Institute & MGM Healthcare clarifies the doubts about cancer which usually people have.

A risk factor is anything that increases a person’s chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. Some risk factors, like smoking, can be changed. Others, like a person’s age or family history, can’t be changed. Several risk factors can make you more likely to develop lung cancer. These factors are related to the risk of lung cancer in general.

When you have cancer, or care about someone who does, “cure” may be the word you want to hear more than any other. It’s also a word most doctors won’t say.

There’s no cure for it, but there are treatments that may be able to cure some people of some cancers. When you understand the difference, it makes all the difference.

Dr. M A Raja, Senior Consultant Medical Oncology, Director of Oncology Services at MGM Healthcare, talks about how curing cancer is equals to treating 100 diseases. This is possible when diagnosed at a early.

Cure for each type of cancer varies from medical treatment, surgery to radiation. There are certain cancers which can be controlled & the patient can have a quality life.
