Women cancer centre

Cancer, be it in any part of the body, can be threatening. However, it is a fact that the majority of women worldwide are being affected by breast cancer.

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women in 2020, with an estimated 2.3 million new cases (11.7%), followed by lung (11.4%), colon (10%), prostate (7.3%) and stomach (5.6%) cancers. Breast cancer is also one of the primary reasons for cancer deaths among women worldwide.

Having stated the above report and overlooking the severity, it does not mean that breast cancer is life-threatening. Instead, breast cancer is one such exception of cancer if regularly examined can be prevented or diagnosed at a very initial stage.

Sahyadri Hospital has taken a revolutionary initiative in women’s cancer diagnosis, particularly by establishing the Well Women’s Clinic. It is managed with the collaborative effort of the women specialists in the Oncology department.

Every Tuesday afternoon, a breast examination clinic is set up. The hospital also provides Mammography and PAP screening facilities.

Counseling centres are also set up that teach and make women aware of the management and prevention of breast cancer. Women coming to the hospital for regular breast check-ups can also avail of counseling sessions from a trained psychologist.

This initiative aims to create awareness and provide guidance to women about the prevention and early detection of breast cancer.

Paediatric Cancer Department

The department that deals with and manages the cancer treatment of children is called the paediatric cancer department.

At Sahyadri Hospital, we have an extensive team of cancer surgeons in Pune and specialized doctors, including a paediatric oncologist, radiotherapist, oncology surgeon, and physical/occupational therapist. They work meticulously to provide the best treatment and care to children.

Treatment of acute leukaemia is one of the most challenging alignments for a paediatric cancer unit.

At Sahyadri Hospitals, we have a separate team of clinical experts who handle children with leukaemia with an intensive chemotherapy regime.

We follow a risk- and response-based approach to choosing the most efficient and effective treatment for every child. We believe in overall treatment depth, excellent infrastructure, and very cooperative and friendly staff for every child.

GIT Cancer centre

The Department of Gastroenterology, as a superspecialty unit, treats disorders of the liver and digestive system.

At Sahyadri Hospitals, we provide treatment for all kinds of Gastrointestinal and liver diseases in cancer patients, including outpatient and inpatient service, modern endoscopic facilities, and specialized ICU care.

We specialize in Diagnostic and therapeutic Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) (for cancer of the food pipe, stomach, gall bladder, and pancreas, jaundice, and pancreatitis). Along with that, we have advanced therapeutic ERCP (Treatment for obstructive jaundice due to stones or cancers of the biliary system or pancreas / Treatment of chronic pancreatitis).

Diagnostic & Therapeutic Single balloon Enteroscopy (for the disease of small intestine-bleeding tumour) is also our core area of diagnosis in the gastroenterology department.

The GIT Cancer Centre at Sahyadri Hospital and Research Centre provides comprehensive care to prevent, diagnose, and treat patients with gastrointestinal cancer and tumours of initial and advanced stages.

Our experienced Gastroenterologists and cancer specialists in Pune, along with trained and professional technicians and nursing staff, provide round-the-clock specialist care to patients with digestive disorders.

Oral Cancers

Oral cancers refer to cancers that develop in the oral cavity, which includes the lips, tongue, gums, floor of the mouth, and other areas within the mouth region.

Oral cancer Treatments at Sahyadri Hospital:

  • Squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity
  • Lip cancer 
  • Tongue cancer
  • Gum cancer
  • The floor of the mouth cancer
  • Buccal mucosa cancer
  • Palate cancer
  • Oropharyngeal cancer (affecting the back of the throat)

Breast Cancer

Breast Cancer Screening helps detect cancer at an early stage. This includes a mammogram or a breast MRI.

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast, whereas a breast MRI takes pictures of the breast with radio waves. A screening procedure can help detect cancer early so treatment can begin at the earliest.

 

What are the Treatment Options for Breast Cancer?

The treatment of breast cancer depends upon various things like age, stage of cancer, and its cause. Some treatment options include surgeries like mastectomy and lumpectomy, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy, etc. Your doctor will diagnose the cancer stage and choose the best treatment.

 

Cancer prevention Program

Sahyadri Hospitals believes in choosing “Prevention over Cure.” We understand that early detection is crucial, especially with disorders like cancer, which can be challenging to spot in its initial stages. By emphasizing proactive measures, we aim to increase the likelihood of successful treatment, providing our patients with the opportunity for a healthier and longer life.

In today’s developing world, we as a community have to fight against this disorder rather than just merely depending on drugs and surgery.

Cancer Prevention Programs are essential public awareness initiatives aimed at lowering cancer-related deaths and improving the quality of life for patients. These programs are led by dedicated professionals who focus on the following key steps:

  1. Prevention: Educating individuals on lifestyle choices and behaviours that can reduce the risk of cancer.
  2. Early Diagnosis and Screening: Encouraging regular screenings and promoting awareness of warning signs to detect cancer at an early stage when treatment is most effective.
  3. Treatment: Providing access to advanced treatment options and ensuring timely and effective care for cancer patients.
  4. Palliative Care: Offering supportive care to improve the quality of life for patients and their families, focusing on pain management and emotional support.

Participating in cancer prevention programs helps individuals learn about the disease, its causes, symptoms, and available treatment and prevention options. We encourage you to join these programs to take proactive steps towards better health and well-being.

Comprehensive Oncology at Sahyadri Hospital

At Sahyadri Hospital, we understand that facing cancer is tough. It’s not just about the physical treatment like surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation. It’s also about dealing with the emotional and mental challenges that come with it.

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it can feel overwhelming. There’s the fear of the unknown, worries about the future, and the stress of managing treatment and finances. That’s why at Sahyadri Cancer Care, we take a comprehensive approach to treatment.

We don’t just focus on treating the cancer itself. We care for the person. We support emotional and psychological well-being, help navigate financial difficulties, and offer self-care and treatment management guidance.
