Best Radiation Oncologist In Bangalore

Radiation therapy is often known as radiotherapy. Radiation oncologist uses a type of radiation that beams to destroy cancer cells. It functions by using a linear accelerator to deliver high-energy x-rays (photons). These non-invasive, painless therapeutic x-rays are used to treat a variety of cancers. Radiation kills or slows cancer cells' growth by damaging their DNA at high doses. Cancer cells that had their DNA damaged beyond repair will either halt dividing or die. When damaged cells die, they are broken down and removed from the body.

Radiation treatment does not immediately kill cancer cells. It takes days or weeks of treatment before cancer cells' DNA is broken enough to kill them. After that, cancer cells continue to die for weeks or months after radiation therapy is completed. At Healius cancer & hematology clinics, radiation oncologists give complete information to the patient for better understanding.

What Is The Importance Of Radiation Therapy?

Radiation therapy is performed by radiation oncologists in the treatment of more than half of all persons with cancer. Radiation treatment is used to treat almost every type of cancer, and some non-cancerous (benign) tumors can also be addressed. This is one of the most cost-effective and most common cancer treatments. With cancer being the primary cause of death worldwide, it's never been more essential to invest in enhancing radiation oncology and assisting cancer patients. While it's essential to keep in mind that each cancer and each person are unique, radiation treatment is usually the treatment of choice and some essential. At Healius cancer & hematology clinics, the best radiation oncologist in Bangalore understands the patient's concerns and works closely with the patient to deliver successful treatment.

Types Of Radiation Therapy

External beam and internal radiation therapy are the two main types. Many factors influence the type of radiation therapy, this includes: Cancer's type
The tumor's size
The tumor's location in the body and how close it is to radiation-sensitive normal tissues
Overall health and medical history
Whether or not the patient will receive additional cancer treatments
Other aspects include age and any existing medical problems External beam is the most effective type of radiation. High-energy beams originate from a machine outside of the body that targets the beams at a specific location on the body during this sort of radiation.
Brachytherapy is another type in which the radiation is delivered directly to the body (brak-e-THER-uh-pee).
Radiation therapy destroys cells by altering the genetic code that regulates cell growth and division. While both healthy and cancerous cells are damaged by radiation, the goal of a radiation oncologist is to induce as minimal damage to normal, healthy cells as possible. Radiation-damaged cells are frequently repaired by normal cells.

In the early stages of cancer, individuals usually benefit from external beam radiation. Success rates of around 90% or more are possible. When the disease is more advanced and evident on an MRI, we have learned through the years that higher doses of radiation are crucial to attaining better results. Some evidence suggests that external beam radiation may be the best treatment option for medium-risk or high-risk cancer patients.

Local radiation therapy for cancer, which treats the tumor site, usually has little effect on the immune system. Radiation to the bones, particularly the bones in the pelvis, where the marrow serves as a blood cell factory, is more likely to damage the immune system. The effect of bone radiation on the immune system can be comparable to that of chemotherapy. In this case, patients could have a low WBC count or possibly neutropenia. To examine the white blood cell numbers, the doctor may order complete blood cell counts. If the patient’s blood levels are too low, the radiation oncologist may modify the treatment and prescribe drugs that increase WBC production.

People often attend treatment sessions five times each week, Monday through Friday. Each session is only about 15-20 minutes long. When radiation enters the body, it does not cause pain, burning, or stinging. Throughout the radiotherapy for cancer, you may hear buzzing or clicking. Treatment is usually spaced out over many weeks to allow healthy cells to recover between radiation therapy sessions.

The most common initial side effects are exhaustion and skin conditions. Other early adverse effects are mainly specific to the treatment area, such as hair loss when radiation is used on this area. Late adverse effects might take months, if not years, to appear.

At Healius cancer & hematology clinics, we provide excellent radiation treatment to those who have cancer. We have the best radiation oncologist in Bangalore. We offer the most advanced radiation treatment and care for all forms of cancer. The department of radiation oncology at Healius is the best unit, focusing on developing accurate imaging, tailored therapy, and harnessing the power of precision to destroy cancer cells.

For many years, a radiation oncologist has used radiation therapy for cancer safely and successfully. Radiation raises the risk of having second cancer slightly. Radiotherapy, on the other hand, eliminates existing cancer in many people. This benefit outweighs the slight chance that the treatment will induce new cancer in the future.

  • Although rarely utilized, radiation forms one of the most important modalities in treating.
  • Benign tumors like Meningioma, Pituitary Adenoma, Acoustic Schwannoma.
  • Functional diseases like Trigeminal Neuralgia, OCDs, Certain forms of epilepsy.
  • Vascular diseases like Arteriovenous malformation, vertebral hemangiomas.
  • Overgrowth of repair tissues like keloids, hypertrophic ossification of the hip.
