Hello, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Cancer itself is the result of abnormal cell growth in the body that becomes cancer cells. These abnormal cells can invade any part of the body and can even spread far to other organs. Early detection and treatment will result in better outcomes. There are several ways that can be done in the treatment of cancer cells, namely;
Tumors that are small and detected early can be removed with this technique.
This technique uses drugs that function to destroy cancer cells and prevent their spread to other organs. Chemotherapy will also cause side effects such as nausea, vomiting, hair loss, loss of appetite, fatigue, skin problems, etc.
This technique uses large doses of radiation to remove or destroy cancer cells. However, this technique not only destroys abnormal cells, good cells in our body are also affected. The side effects that arise depend on the physical condition, the dose given and the area irradiated. The effects that are usually immediately felt are almost the same as chemotherapy, namely nausea, vomiting, hair loss, loss of appetite, mouth sores, dry skin, etc. Meanwhile, the long-term effect depends on the area being irradiated because as already explained, this radiation will affect the good cells too, for example, if radiation is done in the pelvic area, it can cause the bladder to become inelastic again and make a person frequent BAK.
We recommend that you consult your doctor about the side effects that are caused. The doctor will conduct an examination and provide medicine and education to reduce the effects.
