Radiation Oncology

Approximately 50% of cancer patients who undergo cancer therapy are subjected to radiation therapy at some point of the treatment plan. Radiation treatment is largely a local therapy in which radiation is administered in and around the cancer cells, and hence accuracy in radiation oncology is pivotal to determine its effectiveness. Cytecare Radiation Oncology Centre has therefore been set up with the most advanced technology like the Elekta Versa HD, the first such machine in Karnataka.

Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) procedure can be an effective form of treatment for certain kinds of cancer, especially blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma. A stem cell transplant may also be used to treat certain genetic conditions and some noncancerous blood diseases. Cytecare provides the best bone marrow transplant and has a dedicated team of experts to provide information and support to you before, during and after the transplant.

Radiation Oncology Treatment

Approximately 50% of cancer patients who undergo cancer therapy are subjected to radiation therapy at some point of the treatment plan. Radiation treatment is largely a local therapy in which radiation is administered in and around the cancer cells, and hence accuracy in radiation oncology is pivotal to determine its effectiveness. Cytecare Radiation Oncology Centre has therefore been set up with the most advanced technology like the Elekta Versa HD, the first such machine in Karnataka. The technology is administered by a fully trained and skillful team comprising of radiation oncologist, radiology and imaging specialists, physicists and dosimetrists who undertake an extensive treatment planning approach in close consultation with the multidisciplinary team of surgical and medical oncologists.

At Cytecare, to administer personalised care to all its patients, the multidisciplinary team of experts devise the dosage, the pattern of administration and the implications of the therapy on the overall well-being of the patient. Radiation therapy is included in the patient's individualised treatment plan as the primary form of treatment, combined with other treatments like chemotherapy to fight against the growth of new cancer cells, before surgery to shrink a tumour, after surgery to eliminate any remaining cancer cells, as a treatment for cancer that has spread to other areas of the body or as a palliative treatment to relieve pain.

CAR-T Cell Therapy Procedure

  1. T-Cell Collection: The CAR-T Cell Therapy procedure begins with collecting T-Cells from the patient's blood. This process, known as leukapheresis, involves removing blood from the patient's body through a needle or catheter. The blood is then passed through a machine that separates the T-Cells from the other components. The remaining blood components are returned to the patient's body while the isolated T-Cells are collected for further processing.
  2. T-Cell Engineering: Once the T-Cells have been collected, they are sent to the laboratory where they are genetically modified. Scientists introduce a synthetic gene into the T-Cells, enabling them to express a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) on their surface. This receptor is designed to recognize and bind to a specific antigen present on the cancer cells.
  3. T-Cell Expansion: After the T-Cells have been genetically modified, they undergo a period of cell culture and expansion. This step involves providing the T-Cells with the necessary growth factors and nutrients to multiply and increase in number. This ensures that a significant amount of CAR-expressing T-Cells are available for treatment.
  4. CAR-T Cell Infusion: Once a sufficient number of CAR-expressing T-Cells have been produced, they are infused back into the patient's bloodstream. This process is similar to a blood transfusion and is typically administered in a hospital setting. The infused CAR-T Cells then circulate within the patient's body, seeking out and attacking the cancer cells that express the specific antigen recognised by the CAR.

Frequently asked questions

Here are the frequently asked questions about cancer diagnosis, cancer treatment and cancer care

Both chemotherapy and radiation therapy are important treatment options for cancer, but they have different mechanisms of action and are used in different situations. It is not a matter of one being better than the other, but rather a matter of using them appropriately in combination with other treatments based on the specific type and stage of cancer.

While it's true that some cancer treatments can weaken the immune system, radiation therapy's impact varies depending on several factors:
  1. Treatment area
  2. Dosage
  3. Combined treatments
It’s more likely that radiation will weaken your immune system if it’s directed at your bones, particularly the bones in your pelvis, which have blood-producing marrow. Always consult with a medical professional for personalized cancer treatment recommendations. Cytecare providing the best Radiotherapy in Bangalore, has a team of experienced Radio Oncologists who specialize in different treatment options, including radiation therapy.

Yes, many people undergoing radiation therapy are able to continue working, depending on their individual circumstances. The side effects of radiation therapy vary from person to person, and some individuals may experience fatigue, which can potentially impact their ability to perform at work. However, this does not mean you have to give up your job completely. If you need help managing your work schedule or have any questions about working during radiation therapy, reach out to Cytecare - Radiotherapy in Bangalore. The Radio Oncologists at Cytecare can provide guidance and support to help you navigate this period and ensure the best possible outcomes for your cancer treatment.

Radiation therapy is commonly used in the treatment of cancer, and its application depends on the stage of the disease. In early-stage cancers, radiation therapy can be used as a primary treatment method, particularly when surgery is not feasible or the patient wants to avoid it. Radiation can be targeted to the tumour site, with the goal of destroying cancer cells and preventing their growth and spread. Cytecare offers advanced technology and personalized treatment plans to ensure the best possible outcome for patients seeking radiotherapy in Bangalore.

When undergoing radiation treatment, weight loss can vary greatly depending on individual factors such as the type and location of cancer, overall health, and treatment duration. On average, patients may experience a weight loss of 5-10 pounds during the course of radiation therapy. However, it's essential to note that weight loss can be influenced by various factors including changes in appetite, nausea, and metabolic effects of treatment.
