Pharmacists, doctors, and specialist centre’s, such as Cancer Treatment Mexico for example, have been working tirelessly to better cancer treatment methods. The aim is to make these treatment methods effective and safe to the patients. A lot of advancements have been made, and even though the climax on bettering these methods has not been reached, there is a notable progress so far. New methods of cancer treatment have been invented, but they all revolve around the old ones so they can be considered to be improvement of the old methods rather than new invented methods of cancer treatment.
- Advancement Chemotherapy
Initially, patients used to die while taking chemo because the drugs used to destroy even the patients’ non-cancerous cells. The side effects were so profound such that patients used to suffer from the medication rather than the pain of the cancer. The drugs were modified to an extent that when ingested, only the cancer cells will die. They now target the cancer receptors on the affected cells rather than the DNA of the cell as the former chemotherapy used to be.
- Monitored Surgery
Cancerous organs used to be fully removed from the patient and this left many people with long time disabilities. The current surgeries are not done that way; they are monitored on a screen such that only the affected part will be removed instead of the whole organ. Besides the advantage of preciseness, it helps to prevent complications from cutting unwanted parts of the organ. This has made many people to heal from cancer of the cervix, lungs and kidney at the same time.
- Radiography Machine
The current radiography machines are made with the ability to differentiate between the wavelength of a normal cell and a cancerous cell such that only the affected cells will be killed by the beams of radiations that are released by the machine. The old machines used not to be precise in differentiating affected from healthy cells and this led to a lot of side effects and deaths from the treatment. Radiotherapy is more effective because after three or four sessions, the cancer and its carcinogens die completely leaving the person to be fully recovered. It is however very expensive.
- Transplant Interventions
Cancers that have not spread to other body parts can be completely eliminated from the body by replacing the cancerous part with another healthy part from a donor. The part transplanted sometimes undergoes rejection, but the current techniques used are more competent and effective compared to the other parts. Transplants are very effective in treating cancer because the source of the cancer is normally eliminated when a new tissue or organ has been implanted.
The bottom line is that these old methods have been advanced to an extent that they, not relief but also effective treatment that gives no room for relapse. These methods have been developed to an extent that they leave to room for side effects like way the older methods used to. Ensure that you get treated in advanced facilities that have all the equipment required.
