Best Medicine for Cancer Patients

Cancer, the word itself sends chills inside the body. It is one of the leading causes of death around the world with almost 7 to 8 million deaths in a year. There are people who get a successful cancer treatment but even then they can’t survive because of the weak body and the weaker immune response. One has to fight throughout one’s life if he/she becomes a victim to this deadly disease. Regular exercise is a very good option for patients for their post cancer treatment. According to a study conducted over cancer patients of different categories like- prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer etc, it has been found that regular exercises help in regaining some lost strength. Various exercises like- aerobics, resistance and strength work-outs were done by such patients for about 13 weeks and their stamina was found to be improved. They could actually feel better from within.

PET/CT Scans Valuable for Follow-ups in Cancer patients

A study presented at the Multidisciplinary Head, Neck Cancer Symposium, sponsored by AHNS, ASCO, ASTRO and SNM says that the use of positron emission (PET/CT) tomography /computed tomography scans in head and neck in cancer patient’s follow-up can detect local recurrences before they become clinically apparent. These PET/CT scans might also improve the outcome of the subsequent salvage therapy. Whenever recurrence is suspected in a patient, most head and neck cancer follow-up studies use (FDG-PET) Fluorodeoxyglucose-PET scans and PET scan is a relatively new test. The use of this as a routine follow up for head and neck cancer patients is highly controversial.
