Psycho – Oncology
HCG is very sensitive to your emotional needs and extends a helping hand through COPER: Centre of Psycho-Oncology for education and research. Psycho-Oncology is the sub-speciality of oncology that addresses emotional issues and concerns of individuals and their families touched by cancer. Our Psycho-Oncology team is a group of specialists trained in mental health counselling and includes psychologists and psychiatrists, who specialize in cancer care, rehabilitation nurses, and social workers. This team is competent in dealing with adults as well as children.
A healthy diet is the cornerstone of good health and such dietary practices help in improving general health. It is important to understand that making wise changes in the diet plan can help in improving health. Having proper knowledge about which food to take, and which to limit or ignore, is the first step towards good health.
The traditional paradigm of tumor profiling for single gene mutation in cancer involves multiple tests, each targeting a single gene and revealing only a portion of what is happening within the tumor, and can lead to a “one size fits all” view of possible therapies. This is effective in some cases but can lead to increased cost and a longer time to get the answer. This strategy is successful when it leads to innovation and improves the standard of care, but fails when it becomes trial and error.
Time has come, when there is need of complete paradigm shift for comprehensive cancer care, by adopting 'Next Generation Sequencing Technologies' to add a differentiation in cancer classification and patient stratification, to understand each individual patient's response to targeted therapies. This will enable physicians to go beyond the one-size-fits-all model of medicine, to make the most effective clinical decisions for each patient.
