Support Group

Treatment of cancer is a combination of treatments such as surgery, chemotherapy or radiation. The diagnosis itself is accompanied with psychological and emotional distress, financial difficulties, confusion about self- care and treatment management. At Sahyadri Cancer Care, we offer a holistic approach to the treatment of cancer looking after all the aspects of wellness of the patient.

Diet & Nutrition

What to eat, when to eat, how to eat are some of the questions often asked by cancer patients. In the vast array of readily available knowledge and advice by well meaning caregivers and Google, it is important to get our information made to patient order. At the Sahyadri Cancer Care Centre, our qualified Onco- Nutritionist does just that, helping patients through their nutrition and working around their lifestyles and current needs. Diets are planned at all stages of treatment and post-treatment.

Complementary Alternative Medicine Clinic-Homeopathy/ Acupressure

Here, We will Guide you on how to make cancer treatments more effective and easier to follow. Homeopathy/ Accupressure

Physical Rehabilitation

Post breast cancer surgery requires a continual exercise program to help with achieving a range of motion, strength and flexibility. Exercise is also an important component of the prevention and management of lymphoedema. Adjusting to the traumas of oral cancer treatments also requires intense oral rehabilitation.

Psychological Rehabilitation

Cancer is one of the most stigmatized diseases especially because of the lack of awareness about the disease, its treatments and its cures. The diagnosis of cancer causes psychological distress and mental trauma. The treatments cause body image changes often adding to the distress. Our counselling services facilitated by the Nag Foundation help patients and caregivers adjust and learn new skills to cope with the distress.

Cancer Genetic Clinic

5-10% of all cancers are hereditary i.e pass on from parents to child. This has implications for the patient and their family. Our Genetic clinic runs every Saturday from 12-2 pm. A qualified Genetic Counselor Sushma Patil & Dr. Shona Nag take part in Pre test & Post test counselling.

Supportive/Palliative Services & Home Care

When active treatment is not possible our patients transit to palliative care. Dr. Almas Pathan, our palliative specialist manages patients with care & compassion. We provide pain relief & physical support for such patients along with home visits whenever necessary.

Oncology Clinical Trials

These are offered across all 3 branches of Sahyadri Hospitals. Patients can avail of the latest cancer drugs by participating in clinical trials. Sometimes Bio- similars are also offered, assisting nonaffording patients to get standard care and treatment through clinical trials.

Frequently Asked Questions

Chemotherapy (sometimes just called “chemo”) is the use of drugs to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells. The drugs are called cytotoxic, which means toxic to cells (cyto). Some of the drugs come from natural sources such as plants, while others are completely made in a laboratory.
All cells in the body grow by splitting into two cells or dividing. Chemotherapy damages cell that are dividing rapidly. Most chemotherapy drugs enter the bloodstreams and travel throughout the body to target rapidly dividing cancer cells in the organs and tissues. This is known as systemic treatment. Sometimes chemotherapy is delivered directly to the cancer. This is known as local chemotherapy.
You might have treatment with a single chemotherapy drug or a combination of several drugs. There are many different types of chemotherapy drugs, and each type destroys or shrinks cancer cells in a different way.
A: Chemotherapy (sometimes just called “chemo”) is the use of drugs to kill or slow the growth of cancer cells. The drugs are called cytotoxic, which means toxic to cells (cyto). Some of the drugs come from natural sources such as plants, while others are completely made in a laboratory. The chemotherapy drugs you have depends on the type of cancer. This is because different drugs work on different types of cancer. Sometimes chemotherapy is the only treatment needed, but you may also have surgery, radiation therapy or other drug therapies chemotherapy, and it may be given with other drug therapies.
Chemotherapy can be used for different reasons:
To achieve remission or cure - In many cases, chemotherapy causes the signs and symptoms of cancer to reduce or disappear (often referred to as remission or complete response). The treatment may be called curative chemotherapy.
To help other treatments - Chemotherapy is sometimes given either before or after other treatments. If used before (neoadjuvant therapy), the aim is to reduce the cancer so the other treatment is more effective. If chemotherapy is given after the other treatment (adjuvant therapy), the aim is to get rid of any remaining cancer cells. Chemotherapy is often given with radiation therapy to make the radiation therapy more effective.
To control the cancer - Even if chemotherapy cannot achieve remission or complete response (see above), it may be used to control the cancer’s growth and stop it from spreading for a period of time. This may be called palliative chemotherapy.
To relieve symptoms - By shrinking a cancer that is causing pain and other symptoms, chemotherapy can improve quality of life. This is also called palliative chemotherapy.
To stop cancer coming back - Chemotherapy might continue for months or years after remission. This is called maintenance. It aims to prevent or delay the cancer returning.
Chemotherapy works on cells that are dividing rapidly. Cancer cells divide rapidly, as do some healthy cells. These include cells in your blood, mouth, digestive system and hair follicles.
Side effects occur when chemotherapy damages these normal cells. Unlike cancer cells, normal cells can recover, so most side effects are temporary. The drugs used for chemotherapy are constantly being improved to give you the best possible outcomes and to reduce potential side effects.
Chemotherapy is most often given via a vein (intravenously). It is sometimes given in other ways, such as tablets you swallow (oral chemotherapy), as a cream, or as injections into different parts of the body. The choice depends on the type of cancer being treated and the chemotherapy drugs being used.
Having a needle inserted for intravenous chemotherapy may feel like having blood taken. If you have a temporary tube (cannula) in your hand or arm, only the initial injection may be uncomfortable. If you have a central venous access device, it should not be painful. Your oncologist will let you know which method is suitable.
Most people have chemotherapy during day visits to a hospital or treatment centre. In some cases, an overnight or extended hospital stay may be needed. People who use a portable pump or have oral chemotherapy can have their treatment at home. Sometimes a visiting nurse can give you intravenous chemotherapy in your home. Your treatment team will discuss which options are available to you.
How often and for how long you have chemotherapy depends on the type of cancer you have and the drugs that are used. You will usually have a number of treatment cycles, and these may be daily, weekly or monthly.
Often people have chemotherapy over 6-12 months, but it’s possible to have it for a shorter or longer period. Maintenance chemotherapy (to control the cancer or relieve symptoms) may last many months or years.
