Oncology is a branch of medicine dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer in Mumbai. Inherited genetic defects, infections, the external environment, and poor lifestyle choices (smoking, heavy alcohol consumption) are some of the factors that may lead to cancer.
Cancer is the second most common disease in India (after cardio-vascular ailments), with breast, cervical, oral, and lung cancer being the most common, affecting Indian men and women. Best cancer care is possible through multiple types of cancer treatment based on an individual patient’s physical, social, and emotional status at the best cancer hospital in Mumbai.
Fortis Hospital, Mumbai Cancer Care Department offers comprehensive cancer treatments in Mumbai covering the entire spectrum of diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, recovery and palliative care for managing all types of cancer. Our centre provides modern methods of cancer screening and accurate cancer diagnosis is made possible through high-end technology and equipment. Our physicians, with access to advanced cancer diagnostic tests like pathology lab tests (such as tumour markers), endoscopic tests (such as cystoscopy and sigmoidoscopy), and imaging tests (such as CT, MRI, and PET scans), can detect cancer at the early stages, paving the way for crucial decisions regarding cancer treatment.
Our cancer specialists or surgeons utilise a collaborative approach with experts in departments such as general & laparoscopic surgery, neurology, orthopaedic surgery and plastic surgery to arrive at a customised therapy plan based on the stage and type of malignancy. Multiple leading-edge and combination treatment options can be availed by patients in the areas of medical care (such as chemotherapy, immunotherapy), radiation therapy (such as intensity modulated radiation therapy, brachytherapy) and surgical care (such as the Whipple procedure, minimally invasive parathyroidectomy), including the use of ultra-modern surgical techniques (cryosurgery, laser, robot-assisted).
Pivotal to our cancer programme is access to an ecosystem focused on health education, advanced care, and restoring psychosocial and mental well-being for a better quality of life, extending to post-treatment through patient support groups such as HEAL. The HEAL programme creates ambassadors of care; our patients are an inspiration to others in the community to lead a cancer fearless life.
