X-radiation (composed of X-rays) is a form of electromagnetic radiation Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a type of scan that uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. An ultrasound scan, sometimes called a sonogram, is a procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the inside of the body. A biopsy is a medical test commonly performed by a surgeon, interventional radiologist, or an interventional cardiologist involving sampling of cells or tissues for examination. A complete blood count (CBC) gives important information about the kinds and numbers of cells in the blood, especially red blood cells camera.gif, white blood cells camera.gif, and platelets. Cancer staging is the process of determining the extent to which a cancer has developed by spreading. The TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours (TNM) is a cancer staging notation system that gives codes to describe the stage of a person's cancer, when this originates with a solid tumor. Pathologic staging, where a pathologist examines sections of tissue, can be particularly problematic for two specific reasons: visual discretion and random sampling of tissue.

Metastasis to distant organs is an ominous feature of most malignant tumours but the natural history of this process varies in different cancers. The cellular origin, intrinsic properties of the tumour, tissue affinities and circulation patterns determine not only the sites of tumour spread, but also the temporal course and severity of metastasis to vital organs. Targeting cancer metabolism has the potential to lead to major advances in tumor therapy. Numerous promising metabolic drug targets have been identified. Yet, it has emerged that there is no singular metabolism that defines the oncogenic state of the cell. Rather, the metabolism of cancer cells is a function of the requirements of a tumor. Hence, the tissue of origin, the (epi)genetic drivers, the aberrant signaling, and the microenvironment all together define these metabolic requirements.

Protein Biomarkers can be used as biomarkers for early detection of cancers especially used for the identification of breast cancer. Diagnostic Patients with suspected pancreatic cancer will undergo an initial CT scan to determine if a suspect mass is localized and removed by surgery 63% of patients will be diagnosed with non-resectable stage III and IV disease and a biopsy will be undertaken to confirm pancreatic cancer by H&E pathological analysis. The presence of cancerous cells via pathology is very challenging due to high numbers of non-cancerous stromal infiltrating cells and administration of chemotherapy or enrolment into a clinical trial will only commence on definitive diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. These will notice specifically stains neoplastic pancreatic cells would enable the pathologist to confidently diagnose pancreatic cancer and thus offer appropriate cancer treatment to the patients. The Novel Biomarker BI-010 has been identified as a highly sensitive (98%) and specific (95%) IHC marker for pancreatic cancer and CRT is seeking a partner to develop an IHC based test to detect BI-010 in fine needle aspirate biopsies from biopsy samples.

Cancer Immunology is a field of research that aims to discover cancer immunotherapies to treat and retard progression of the disease. The immune response, including the recognition of cancer-specific antigens, forms the basis of targeted and tumour marker-based diagnostic tests. Understanding these interactions is important for the development of new therapies for cancer treatment. Also, certain cancers are caused due to viruses as well.

Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with tumors. A medical professional who practices oncology is an oncologist. Integrative oncology manages the mind, body, and spirit. Modalities of movement, touch, nutrition, and mindfulness are used within conventional cancer care to address and improve symptoms and quality-of-life.Oncologic emergencies, as the term implies, are complications resulting from a cancer itself, a paraneoplastic syndrome, or from treatment of the cancer, that require immediate attention and reversal, if possible. Inpatient treatment is a must, and often these conditions require intervention in an intensive care setting.Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with tumors.

Chemotherapeutic agent An agent used to treat cancer administered in regimens of one or more cycles, combining two or more agents over a period of days to weeks. Intravenous (IV) chemotherapy (chemo) is one way to receive cancer-fighting medicine. Oral chemotherapy (chemo) is a treatment used to shrink a tumor or kill cancer cells. Oral chemo is usually taken in the form of a pill or capsule. Arterial chemotherapy infusion of the liver and chemoembolization of the liver (transarterial chemoembolization or TACE) are similar procedures that are used for the treatment of cancers in the liver. Adjuvant therapy or care, also called adjunct therapy or adjunctive therapy or care, is therapy that is given in addition to the primary, main, or initial therapy to maximize its effectiveness. Topical chemotherapy is a cream or lotion applied directly to the skin cancer. Different drugs cause different side effects. Certain types of chemotherapy often have specific side effects. But, each person’s experience is different.

Metastasis, or metastatic disease, is the spread of a cancer or other disease from one organ or part to another not directly connected with it. An oncovirus is a virus that can cause cancer. This term originated from studies of acutely transforming retroviruses in the 1950–60s, often called oncornaviruses to denote their RNA virus origin. Carcinogenesis or oncogenesis or tumorigenesis is the actual formation of a cancer, whereby normal cells are transformed into cancer cells. Mutagenesis /mjuːtəˈdʒɛnɪsɪs/ is a process by which the genetic information of an organism is changed in a stable manner, resulting in a mutation. It may occur spontaneously in nature, or as a result of exposure to mutagens. Apoptosis is a form of physiological cell death mediated by caspases, a unique family of intracellular cysteine proteases.

The branch of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of injury, deformity, and disease by the use of instruments. Stem-cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Gene therapy is the therapeutic delivery of nucleic acid polymers into a patient's cells as a drug to treat disease. Gene therapy could be a way to fix a genetic problem at its source. A bone marrow transplant is a procedure to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Immunotherapy is a new class of cancer treatment that works to harness the innate powers of the immune system to fight cancer. Refractive surgery is the term used to describe surgical procedures that correct common vision problems (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia) to reduce your dependence on prescription eyeglasses and/or contact lenses. Angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels. This process involves the migration, growth, and differentiation of endothelial cells, which line the inside wall of blood vessels. Hyperthermia is elevated body temperature due to failed thermoregulation that occurs when a body produces or absorbs more heat than it dissipates.

Treatment often fails when cancer becomes resistant to anti-cancer drugs. Thus, drug resistance is a big challenge facing the survival of cancer patients. Research in discovering and designing drugs with new chemistry structure or mechanism of action is critical to overcome the drug resistance problem and give patient better chance to survive longer. Monoclonal antibody therapy is a form of immunotherapy that uses monoclonal antibodies (mAb) to specifically bind to specific cells or proteins. Nanomedicine is the application of nanotechnology which made its debut with greatly increased possibilities in the field of medicine. Nanomedicine desires to deliver research tools and clinically reformative devices in the near future.The clinical toxicology importance of any drug interaction depends on factors that are drug-patient and administration related. Generally, a doubling or more in plasma drug concentration has the potential for enhanced adverse or beneficial drug response Drug interactions in oncology are of particular importance owing to the narrow therapeutic index and the inherent toxicity of anticancer agents. Interactions with other medications can cause small changes in the pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics of a chemotherapy agent that could significantly alter its efficacy or toxicity.

Vaccines – Vaccines help the body’s immune system prepare for future attacks. Vaccines consist of killed or modified microbes, parts of microbes, or microbial DNA that trick the body into thinking an infection has occurred. A prophylactic vaccination is a selective exposure to a weakened or diluted form of an infectious agent to encourage a patient to form antibodies. Vaccination given during childhood is generally safe. Adverse effects if any are generally mild. The rate of side effects depends on the vaccine in question. Some common side effects include: fever, pain around the injection site, and muscle aches. Additionally, some individuals may be allergic to ingredients in the vaccine. MMR vaccine is rarely associated with febrile seizures.
Prevention- Cancer chemoprevention is defined as the use of natural, synthetic, or biologic chemical agents to reverse, suppress, or prevent carcinogenic progression to invasive cancer. Screening, in medicine, is a strategy used in a population to identify the possible presence of an as-yet-undiagnosed disease in individuals without signs or symptoms. The effect of diet and nutrition on cancer prevention and recurrence (the return of cancer after treatment) is one of the most studied topics in medicine.

Ayurvedic medicine is an ancient Indian system of medicine which began about 5,000 years ago. It is not just one treatment. It is a way of diagnosing illness and using a wide range of treatments and techniques. Herbal medicine uses plants, or mixtures of plant extracts, to treat illness and promote health. It aims to restore your body's ability to protect, regulate and heal itself. It is a whole body approach, so looks at your physical, mental and emotional well being. It is sometimes called phytomedicine, phytotherapy or botanical medicine. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) believe that cancer arises from an imbalance that causes a systemic breakdown within the body. Homeopathy is based on the theory of treating like with like. So to treat an illness a homeopathic therapist (homeopath) uses tiny doses of a substance that in large doses would actually cause the symptoms of the illness.

Distribution in economics refers to the way total output, income, or wealth is distributed among individuals or among the factors of production (such as labour, land, and capital). In general theory and the national income and product accounts, each unit of output corresponds to a unit of income. Cancer can be a major cause of lack of money. This may be due either to the costs of treating and managing the illness as well as its impact upon people's ability to work. This particularly affects countries that lack comprehensive social health insurance systems and other types of social safety nets. The study is a longitudinal short study of 10,000 hospital patients with a first time diagnosis of cancer.
Patients were assigned a socioeconomic status according to the district of residence at diagnosis. Continuity of patients due to cancer living in the most deprived district was compared to survival of patients living in all other districts by model-based period analysis. These major regional socioeconomic inequalities indicate a potential for improving cancer care and survival in Germany. Studies on individual patient data with access to treatment information should be conducted to examine the reasons for these socioeconomic inequalities in cancer survival in more detail.

Oncology has become one of the most important focus areas for pharmaceutical and biotech companies because of the high gear unmet need for improved handling for various types of Cancers. For an oncologist or an oncology nurse, to find the appropriate words to console a person who is suffering the loss of a loved one can be troublesome. This section in several oncology conferences & oncology nursing meetings addresses how different groups of oncologists, patients, and Nurses think about the end-of-life care issues . This section discusses an oncologist's responsibility and perspective when it comes to subjects such as advanced cancer, hospice , do not resuscitate orders, cytotoxic therapy, maintaining a patient's dignity, supportive care and imminent decease . Article in this series also discuss the role of church property and religion during the time of Death , and the importance of good communicating between the oncologist and family members throughout the dying process.
Oncology nurses practice in a variety of settings including acute care hospitals, ambulatory care clinics, private oncologists' offices, radiation therapy facilities, home healthcare agencies, and community agencies.
The practice of cancer nursing encompasses the roles of direct caregiver, educator, consultant, administrator, and researcher. Oncology and cancer nursing extends to all care delivery settings where clients experiencing or at risk for developing cancer receive health care, education, and counseling for cancer prevention, screening and detection.
