Terms Related to Cancer Treatment Centers

While talking to doctors, cancer patients and their loved ones might encounter words and phrases that they have not heard before. The following list of key terms should help you communicate better with your specialist and family doctor during cancer treatment.

  • Palliative care – Many cancer centers and hospitals recognize that patients can experience physical and emotional discomfort while receiving chemotherapy, radiation, and other types of treatment. Palliative care is an area of health care that helps prevent and minimize the effect of patient suffering. This often includes mental health support as well as pain medications and physical therapy.
  • Hospice care – Hospice care is similar to palliative care in that it tries to reduce or prevent patient suffering. The biggest difference is that hospice is reserved for individuals with terminal illnesses. The support provided by hospice care centers, therefore, does not focus on finding a cure, but rather minimizing suffering and making the end of life as enjoyable as possible.
  • Sarcoma – A type of cancer that is usually treated with surgery rather than chemotherapy. There are two types of sarcoma: soft tissue and bone. Although sarcomas can occur anywhere in the body, they are most common in the arms and legs.
  • Carcinoma – A tumor tissue that is commonly found in the lungs, breasts, and colon. Hospitals often treat carcinomas with a combination of medical techniques, including chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. The cancer develops from cells that have experienced damage during division and can spread quickly without immediate intervention.

    Finding out you have cancer can be a scary experience, but there are many treatment centers that can support you through the process. Cancer is a disease formed by irregular cell growth. These cells can often form tumors such as malignant melanoma. Malignant melanoma is a dangerous form of skin cancer. A treatment center is similar to a hospital, but they focus specifically on patients with cancer. Because of this, these facilities offer the latest in oncology and cancer therapy. They hire the best doctors and specialists to help fight your illness. No matter what kind you have, from lung to breast cancer, these facilities will get you the medical care you need, and many have a policy to never turn away a patient whether they can afford to pay or not. Even if you suffer from sarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue, these clinics will have information on the latest treatment. They may suggest chemo therapy, a form of radiation that is intended to stop the spread and often shrink the cancer. They may also refer you to a trial program or alternative care option. They can also offer you information on the best hospitals and invite you to support groups. Whether you are facing chemo or alternative care, and whether you are in the early or advanced stages of cancer, these centers can afford you the security and confidence you need to get better. To find a cancer treatment center in your area, check your local directory and talk to your physician.
