The department of Medical Oncology at Aster Mother Hospital, Areekode offers comprehensive care in diagnosing and treating patients of all ages (adults and children), suffering from solid tumours and haematological malignancies. Cancer patients need accurate diagnosis and staging workup of cancer, multidisciplinary treatment and proper follow-up. In our department, our motto is Cancer Care and Cure with Clarity and Compassion. We strive with passion to provide this service to every cancer patient who comes to our department. From the oncologists, oncology nurses and the staff in administration, all efforts are done to provide the best care for the oncology patients and the onus is always to keep improving. The onus is on the early detection of the most common cancers seen in our population like breast, cervical cancer, colon cancer, lung cancer, and oral cancer etc.
Education regarding cancer prevention measures is given to each individual who comes for screening. The medical oncology unit takes care of chemotherapy, immunotherapy and targeted therapy for our cancer patients. The team derives its strength from the experience of oncologists who have more than a decade of experience in providing different systemic treatments and managing their toxicities as and when they occur. Palliative care services are provided to all patients with cancer who have symptoms. Early palliative care is a very important aspect of the management of early cancers as they also need symptomatic control during their treatment. Advanced cancer patients are provided with pain relief measures along with palliation of other symptoms like fluid in the chest and abdomen, breathing difficulty etc. Oral morphine, Fentanyl patch etc is available for patient care.
We are committed to offering compassionate care along with personalized treatment for patients with various cancer types through the use of chemotherapy and targeted therapy.
