What is cancer?
Cancer is a disease, where malignant cells grow out of control and spread to other parts of the body. It can start anywhere in the body and it can happen at any age.
Receiving a cancer diagnosis can be challenging for you and your loved ones. Many questions may arise, therefore, we are here to answer as many questions about cancer and cancer treatment as possible. We also tell you what you can expect from your journey going forward.
The Stage of Cancer
Cancer cells have the potential to extend to other parts in the body, as they circulate through the body in the blood, and cause problems in other areas. For instance, lung cancer cells might spread to the bones and accumulate there. The spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body is referred to as “metastasis”. Finding out how much and how far the cancer has spread is the procedure of staging. The doctor can determine whether additional tests are required based on the stage of cancer.
It also helps the doctor determine the best treatment to offer and define the expected response to the treatment. Get as much information as you can about your diagnosis. Why did the cancer develop? What are the available options?, many questions like these will arise.
To better understand your cancer and give treatment recommendations, your doctor may order additional tests including biopsies, blood tests, or imaging studies like an X-ray or MRI. Before you choose what course of therapy to begin, you might wish to discuss the results with a different healthcare professional to get a second opinion.
Steps to take after a Cancer Diagnosis
– Gather information regarding your diagnosis and the therapies available
– Get a second or even a third opinion from a doctor
– Seek support from your friends and family
– Prepare for the journey mentally and physically
– Apply a healthy nutrition plan and regular exercise
– Do not lose hope
Your doctor will first need to understand more about your cancer before beginning any treatment. The optimal course of treatment for you will depend on the outcomes of a biopsy, blood tests, physical examinations, imaging tests (x-rays or scans), and any issues the cancer is creating. Your doctor may potentially consult with additional specialists. If you are interested in the innovative Cancer Diagnostics Program that Immucura offers, click here
The purpose of the treatment and the pros and cons of each treatment option will then be discussed with you by your doctor. Your options for treatment will be determined by all of the following: your age and general health, the type of cancer you have, the stage (amount) of the cancer, and your particular condition.
Its essential to discuss the options for therapy that you believe are best for you. Ask as many questions as you need to without hesitation. obtaining a second viewpoint and getting the advice of at least one other health care professional before beginning therapy is one approach to determine if a treatment is the best one for you.
Conventional Therapies or Immunotherapy?
Most of the time patients tend to opt for conventional therapies for many reasons, such as: doctors recommendation, being comfortable with what is familiar, or not being aware of other cancer treatments available. Conventional therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy are invasive and can come with side effects such as fatigue, pain, gastrointestinal problems, hair loss, weight changes, and many more. There are more options available to treat cancer, other than the conventional treatments. If you are looking for non-invasive cancer therapy options you may want to consider immunotherapy with Dendritic Cells, Discover more here
What is Dendritic Cell Therapy?
Dendritic Cells were discovered in the beginning of the 19th century. However, it was only in 2011 that Ralph M. Steinman was awarded with a Nobel-prize for the work of a lifetime: the trailblazing discovery of the immunological function of Dendritic Cells.
Steinman found out that Dendritic Cells are able to detect malignant cells and to make these identifiable to the so called “killer cells” (T-Cells or T-Lymphocytes). It is only through that information that “killer cells” are able to destroy malignant cells before they spread and produce further damage to the body.
Dendritic Cell Therapy uses the body’s own immune system to naturally destroy cancer cells. The therapy in 5 steps:
1- Separation of the body’s monocytes from the blood
2- Cultivation of the monocytes into Dendritic Cells
3- Priming of the Dendritic Cells with cancer information
4- Instruction of the immune cells
5- Finding and eliminating cancer cells
Dendritic Cell Therapy as a primary therapy?
Dendritic cell therapy can be used in conjunction or separate from any other treatment. It can be combined with chemotherapy to boost the immune system and minimize the side effects and it can also be a primary therapy.
Oncologists with expertise in immunology will likely suggest Dendritic Cell Therapy as a first and primary therapy, for many reasons such as: it is Minimally invasive, pain-free, uses the body’s natural healing system, has no side effects and, is appropriate for any tumour-based cancers.
