Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Cancers are recognized because of the appearance of signs or symptoms or through screening. Neither of these leads to exact diagnosis of disease, it mainly requires the examination of a tissue sample 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 with cancer can be investigated through medical tests.  These commonly include blood tests are X-rays, CT 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. Thus all together it gives the useful 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 removal of the cancer without damaging the other parts of the body (by achieving cure with near-zero adverse effects) is the main goal of treatment. The type of treatment depend on the type of cancer the patient is suffering with and how advanced it is. Some people with cancer have only one type of treatment. But for most 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 other kind of treatment for cancer.
