Department of Oncology

When the cells of a human body begin to grow and divide uncontrollably to form a mass or tumour, it is called cancer. The study of this mass or cancer is known as Oncology and an oncologist is a physician or a doctor who treats cancer and provides medical care to a person diagnosed with cancer. They are also referred to as cancer specialist.

Oncology has 3 major parts based on their treatments:

At Bhagwan Mahavir Medica we offer Medical oncology and Surgical oncology

Medical Oncology

Medical oncology is one of the main cancer treatment modalities, which along with Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Targeted Therapy and Hormonal Therapy is often used to manage cancer effectively. Together they help destroy cancer cells present in the body. These administered in combination with other treatment plans like surgery and radiation therapy often help to provide best clinical outcomes for cancer patients.

The medical oncology experts at Bhagwan Mahavir Medica help in prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of cancers using cutting-edge technology and personalisedmultimodal treatment plans for each patient.

We provide inpatient chemotherapy facilities, and our medical oncologists are skilled and experienced to manage both solid tumours and haematological disorders while also preserving the quality of life among both adult and paediatric patients.

Surgical oncology

Surgical oncology focuses on surgery to diagnose, stage and treat cancer, and to manage some cancer-related symptoms.

Here the surgical oncologists specialize in the surgical aspects of cancer, including biopsy (the removal of a small amount of tissue for examination under a microscope for diagnosis), surgically removing the cancer. Surgery is also at times used to know the cancer’s location and if it has spread to the surrounding tissues and nearby lymph nodes (tiny, bean-shaped organs that help fight diseases), restore body’s appearance or function and sometimes relieve side effects
