Diagnosis and Treatment given for all types of cancer

  •  Open or CloseAnal cancer

    Anal cancer is an uncommon type of cancer that occurs in the anal canal. The analcanal is a short tube at the end of your rectum through which stool leaves your body.Anal cancer can cause signs and symptoms such as rectal bleeding and analpain. Anal cancer is typically an anal squamous cell carcinoma that arises near the squamocolumnar junction, often linked to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.


  •  Open or CloseBreast Cancer

    Breast Cancer lump. The tumor is malignant (cancer) if the cells can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. Breast.cancer occurs almost entirely in women, but men can get breast cancer, too.


  •  Open or CloseBladder cancer

    Bladder cancer is a type of cancer that begins in your bladder — a balloon-shaped organ in your pelvic area that stores urine. Bladder cancer begins most often in the cells that line the inside of the bladder. Bladder cancer typically affects older adults, though it can occur at any age

  •  Open or CloseBone cancer

    Bone cancer is an uncommon cancer that begins in a bone. Bone cancer can begin in any bone in the body, but it most commonly affects the long bones that make up the arms and legs. Several types of bone cancer exist. Some types ofbone cancer occur primarily in children, while others affect mostly adults.

  •  Open or CloseBrain cancer

    Brain cancer: Cancer of the central information processing center of the body.Tumors in the brain can be malignant or benign, and can occur at any age. Only malignant tumors are cancerous. Primary brain tumors cancer initially forms in the brain tissue.

  •   Open or CloseCervical cancer

    Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that occurs in the cells of the cervix — the lower part of the uterus that connects to the vagina. Various strains of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a sexually transmitted infection, play a role in causing most cervical cancer.

  •  Open or CloseChronic myeloid leukaemia (CML)

    Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) is a type cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow. In CML the bone marrow produces too many white cells, called granulocytes. These cells, sometimes called blasts or leukaemic blasts, gradually crowd the bone marrow, interfering with normal blood cell production.


    Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a cancer of the myeloid line of blood cells, characterized by the rapid growth of abnormal white blood cells that build up in the bone marrow and interfere with the production of normal blood cells.

  •   Open or Closecolon cancer

    colon cancer is the third leading type of cancer in males and the fourth in females. Risk factors for cancer of the colon and rectum (colorectal cancer) include colon polyps, long-standing ulcerative colitis, and genetic family history. Most colorectal cancers develop from polyps.

  •  Open or CloseEsophageal cancer

    Esophageal cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the esophagus. The esophagus is a muscular tube that moves food and liquids from the throat to the stomach. The most common types of esophageal cancer are squamous cell carcinoma and adenocarcinoma.

  •   Open or CloseStomach cancer

    Stomach cancer is cancer that occurs in the stomach — the muscular sac located in the upper middle of your abdomen, just below your ribs. Your stomach receives and holds the food you eat and then helps to break down and digest it. Another term for stomach cancer is gastric cancer.

  •  Open or ClosePancreatic cancer

    Pancreatic cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells form in the tissues of the pancreas. The pancreas is a gland located behind the stomach and in front of the spine. The pancreas produces digestive juices and hormones that regulate blood sugar.

  •   Open or CloseLung cancer

    Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that start off in one or bothlungs; usually in the cells that line the air passages. The abnormal cells do not develop into healthy lung tissue, they divide rapidly and form tumors

  •   Open or CloseEndometrial cancer

    Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in theuterus. The uterus is the hollow, pear-shaped pelvic organ in women where fetal development occurs.Endometrial cancer begins in the layer of cells that form the lining (endometrium) of the uterus. Endometrial cancer is sometimes called uterine cancer

  •  Open or CloseHead and neck cancer

    Head and neck cancer is a group of cancers that starts within the mouth, nose, throat, larynx, sinuses, or salivary glands. Symptoms may include a lump or sore that does not heal, a sore throat that does not go away, trouble swallowing, or a change in the voice.

  •   Open or CloseLymphomas

    Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is a group of blood cancers that ../../includes all types of lymphoma except Hodgkin's lymphomas. Symptoms include enlarged lymph nodes, fever, night sweats, weight loss, and tiredness. ... Lymphomas are types of cancer that develops from lymphocytes, a type of white blood cell.


    Hodgkin lymphoma is a type of lymphoma. Lymphoma is a cancer of a part of the immune system called the lymph system. The first sign of Hodgkin disease is often an enlarged lymph node. Thedisease can spread to nearby lymph nodes. Later it may spread to the lungs, liver, or bone marrow


    Hodgkin lymphomGallbladder cancer is cancer that begins in the gallbladder. Your gallbladder is a small, pear-shaped organ on the right side of your abdomen, just beneath your liver. The gallbladder stores bile, a digestive fluid produced by your liver.


    Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), also called malignant hepatoma, is the most common type of liver cancer. Most cases of HCC are as a result of either a viral hepatitis infection (hepatitis B or C), metabolic toxins such as alcohol or aflatoxin, conditions like hemochromatosis and alpha 1-antitrypsin deficiency or NASH.


    Kidney cancer, also known as renal cancer, is a type ofcancer that starts in the cells in the kidney. The two most common types of kidney cancer are renal cell carcinoma(RCC) and transitional cell carcinoma (TCC, also known as urothelial cell carcinoma) of the renal pelvis.


    Melanoma a cancer of the melanocyte, the cell that produces pigment in the skin. Melanoma is considered the most dangerous form of skin cancer, Melanoma is most common in people with fair skin, but can occur in people with all skin colors. Most melanomas present as a dark, mole-like spot that spreads and, unlike a mole, has an irregular border. The tendency toward melanoma may be inherited and the risk increases with overexposure to the sun and .sunburn
