The initial shock and uncertainty of a cancer diagnosis is a traumatic experience and in many ways rob the patient and family of their security as well as their peace of mind.
When you first meet with one of our oncologists, we will discuss all options and implications, as well as your chances of being cured (called the prognosis). No doctor can predict to what extent a patient can be cured, however there is always hope, and a positive attitude positively affects how you and those around you cope with your illness. We design an action plan for your specific needs, taking into account the type of cancer you have been diagnosed with, the most suitable treatment and your general state of health.
Fact: 50% of all cancers can be cured and if diagnosed at an early stage up to 70% of patients can be cured. It is therefore important to understand what is happening to the body's cells, how it can be treated and what side effects to expect.
