Cancer (Malignancy, Tumors, Melanomas, Leukemia, Lymphoma,etc)
There are many forms of cancer such as breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer, lymphoma, bladder cancer, colon cancer, brain cancer, melanoma, pancreatic cancer, prostrate cancer, etc. Because there are so many types of cancer, treatment and management widely vary. Treatment can include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery, etc.
Chemotherapy uses a variety of different drugs for treatment.
Radiation therapy uses high-energy particles to destroy cancer cells.
Immunotherapy uses a body’s immune system in order to help fight cancer cells.
Hyperthermia therapy involves the use of heat to deal with affected cells.
Bone Marrow and Peripheral Blood Stem Cell transplants are another form of treatment.
Some of these treatments may cause a number of side effects. Melanomas are a dangerous form of skin cancer and are frequently found in young adults.
It is important that your treating doctors note your symptoms as a part of your treatment record. It is usually a good idea to prepare a list of your symptoms and remind your doctor of the complete list of symptoms which you are experiencing.
