Cancer Care

Cancer is a broad word that encompasses a wide range of illnesses that can affect any region of the body. Malignant tumours and neoplasms are some other words that are used for it. One of the defining features of cancer is the fast emergence of aberrant cells that expand beyond their normal boundaries, allowing them to infect neighbouring sections of the body and migrate to other organs; this is known as metastasis. Cancer metastases are the leading cause of mortality.

Chemotherapy or surgery to remove the malignant growth or tumour are the treatments that are commonly associated with cancer. However, there is another crucial treatment that is sometimes forgotten, namely cancer rehabilitation or rehab.

There is no single treatment that will work for all of the 200 plus kinds and subtypes of cancer. Tailored therapy and a multidisciplinary combination of surgical and radiation oncology, medicine, pain management, and counselling are always required for effective care. Medharbour offers a team of specialists and professionals that can provide comprehensive cancer care services that are tailored to the patient’s needs.

For someone who has had a heart attack or a knee replacement, rehabilitation has long been regarded as the standard of care, but cancer rehabilitation is a relatively new notion. Physical, psychological, and cognitive issues are common side effects of cancer treatment. These issues might make it more difficult to carry out everyday tasks or return to work. They may also have long-term consequences for your health. These issues, which might arise during and after cancer treatment, can be addressed through cancer rehabilitation. Rehabilitation will optimize a cancer survivor’s capacity to develop endurance and mobility, as well as improve their everyday life activities. Furthermore, highly qualified professionals help cancer survivors to regain independence and improve the quality of their lives.

Here, at Medharbour, our cancer specialists treat breast, lung, colon, lymphoma, and other rare types of cancers too. Our expert team provides preventative, palliative, and end-of-life care, with best-in-class facilities and infrastructure, and cutting-edge oncology. Preventive rehab begins soon following a new diagnosis or the appearance of new impairments. The goal is to give information, counselling, and treatments to help people avoid or delay future impairments and retain their current level of competence. In long-term diseases like cancer, this is a popular kind of rehabilitation. It also serves as the foundation for assisted self-management and can involve treatments targeted at preserving function for as long as feasible. Palliative rehabilitation allows patients with cancer to live a high quality of life in terms of physical, psychological, and social well-being while honouring their preferences. To achieve maximum functional independence and promote comfort, dignity, and standard of life, it frequently focuses on treating symptoms such as pain, dyspnoea, and oedema, avoiding contractures, breathing help, psychological wellness, relaxation, or the use of assistive devices.
