Chemotherapy is a treatment that uses chemicals to kill cancer cells. It usually acts by preventing cancer cells from growing, dividing, or proliferating. Chemotherapy has a greater effect on cancer cells because they grow and divide quicker than normal cells.
Chemotherapy aims are determined by the type of cancer and how far it has spread. The goal of treatment is sometimes to eradicate all cancer and prevent it from returning. If this is not possible, you may be given chemotherapy to help slow or stop the progression of your cancer.
Chemotherapy can help manage cancer symptoms by delaying or decreasing their progression. Palliative chemotherapy is a type of chemotherapy used to slow the progression of cancer.
Chemotherapy is frequently administered for a set period of time, such as six months or a year. Alternatively, you could undergo chemotherapy for as long as it is effective. For example, you could receive chemotherapy on the first day and then rest for three weeks before continuing the treatment. A treatment cycle is a three-week period. A chemotherapy course is made up of several cycles. A typical course lasts three months or longer.
Doctors use chemotherapy in different ways at different times. These include:
Some chemotherapy medications have been found to be effective in the treatment of other illnesses, including:
We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for chemotherapy in India.

Chemotherapy may be given in several different ways, which are discussed below:
During chemotherapy, you'll see your cancer doctor (oncologist) on a frequent basis. Your oncologist will inquire about any adverse effects you're having, as many of them can be managed.
You may also have scans and other tests to monitor your cancer during chemotherapy treatment, depending on your situation. These tests can help your doctor figure out how your cancer is reacting to treatment and change your treatment accordingly.
The most common and immediate side effects of chemotherapy are nausea, vomiting, hair loss, loss of appetite, diarrhea, fatigue, fever, constipation, bleeding or bruising.
Most of the above side effects subside after the treatment ends.
There are long term side effects of chemotherapy as well. These side effects that don't show up for months or years after treatment. The examples of late adverse effects that can occur based on the chemotherapy drug are heart problems, infertility, nerve damage, damage to lung tissue or risk of developing other cancer.
You must check with your doctor if you are at risk of developing late side effects and what signs or symptoms should you look for that may signal a problem.
Your doctor will decide which chemotherapy medications you'll get based on a number of criteria, including your age, type and stage of cancer, your overall health, if you have had any previous chemotherapy or other treatments and the goal of the treatment.
Chemotherapy can be used alone or in combination with other treatments. It could be given once a week or once a month. The sort of cancer you have, the chemotherapy medications you'll be given, the treatment goal, and how your body reacts will all influence your treatment plan.
The majority of side effects are transient and fade away over time as healthy cells recover after chemotherapy, but some long-term consequences, such as those on fertility, the heart, and the kidneys, may be permanent.
The cost of chemotherapy in India is much lower in India, even in large cosmopolitan cities. Chemotherapy costs in Mumbai range from 650 to 2000 dollars per cycle. The cost of treatment is determined by the drug, the number of travelers, the number of cycles of chemotherapy prescribed for the cancer stage, and various other factors.
While surgery and radiation treatment target cancer cells in a specific location, chemotherapy can affect cancer cells throughout the body.
Drugs can be administered in a variety of ways, such as by mouth, as a shot, as a cream, or intravenously (by IV), and your doctor will determine which method is appropriate for you.
It's a gadget that regulates the amount and rate at which chemotherapy medications are given.
A catheter is a small disc that is implanted under your skin and connects to a large vein, usually in your chest, to administer chemotherapy drugs or draw blood.
The length of a cycle is determined by the treatment administered. Most cycles last between 2 and 6 weeks.
Chemotherapy-induced pain is a type of nerve discomfort that causes numbness and tingling in the hands, foot, or any other extremity of the body.
The majority of chemotherapy treatments are delivered in cycles. Chemotherapy in "cycles" refers to a treatment period followed by a period of recovery. For example, a three-week cycle can consist of one week of therapy followed by two weeks of relaxation. The time you spend resting permits your body to produce new, healthy cells.
The length of a cycle is determined by the treatment. The majority of cycles last between 2 and 6 weeks.
Having been home a few days now I can get my thoughts together and give my heartfelt thanks for the support and encouragement I got from IndiCure. Obviously, there was a certain amount of trepidation going to what has a reputation of being a third world country for a major operation like knee replacement, having received the type of treatment which I would think only the Royal family would receive in this country I wonder which is the third world country. From the organization arranged by your good self to absolutely first-class attention at the hospital and the service of doctors and his wonderful team all of whom spoke English, the nursing was one to one and my well-being was their only concern.
The operation has been a complete success. I am so happy with the results. The friendliness from everyone from consultant to ancillary workers was amazing.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
