How Do We Diagnose Cancer?

As there are different types of cancer, there are also different studies to detect its presence. They usually include one or more of the following tests:

  • Physical examination by the doctor.
  • Laboratory tests, such as blood or urine tests.
  • Imaging studies, such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance, tomography or PET-CT.
  • Biopsy, which consists of taking a tissue sample to analyze it and corroborate if it is cancer and what type it is.
  • Genetic studies, which allow to know in which genes the cancer is causing mutations, with which the definition of the indicated treatment is more precise and effective.

Treatments for Cancer

Many facts are considered when defining a treatment: the type of cancer, its genetic behavior, the stage of the disease, the patient's age and his or her health condition are some of the most important.

Some of the treatments to fight cancer are the following:

  • Surgery.
  • Radiation Therapy.
  • Chemotherapy.
  • Hormone Therapy.
  • Directed Molecular Treatment.
  • Bone Marrow Transplant.
