Alternative Treatment and Cancer Therapy

Cancer can be treated by many methods, such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, hormonal therapy, and synthetic lethality. People suffering from cancer can be examined through medical tests. These generally include blood tests are X-rays, CT scans, and endoscopy. The tissue investigation from the biopsy specifies the type of cell that multiplies, through its histological grade, genetic abnormalities, and other features. Thus all together it gives the user information about molecular changes such as mutations, fusion genes, and numerical chromosome to estimate or show the prognosis and to choose the best treatment. Cytogenetics and immunohistochemistry are other common tissue tests. The elimination of cancer without damaging the other parts of the body (by achieving cure with near-zero adverse effects) is the key goal of treatment. The type of treatment depends on the type of cancer the patient is suffering with and how advanced it is. Various people with cancer have only one type of treatment. But for maximum of the people, they have a combination of treatments, such as surgery with chemotherapy (use of drugs to kill cancer cells) or radiation therapy. Immunotherapy, targeted therapy, or hormone therapy are alternative kind of treatment for cancer.
