Overview

Cancer, a term often associated with fear, refers to a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled cell growth, potentially leading to the formation of tumors. The field of cancer care is a critical component of healthcare, dedicated to the prevention, early detection, and treatment of various types of cancer. This involves implementing guidelines for cancer screening and prevention, promoting early detection and treatment strategies, and conducting research to develop and adopt evidence-based approaches to reduce cancer risk.

Key Takeaways

  • Cancer care is evolving to include proactive advocacy for palliative and supportive care, aiming to improve patients' overall quality of life.
  • There is a shift towards less radical surgery in low-risk cervical cancer patients, reflecting advancements in treatment approaches.
  • The importance of diversity in oncology clinical trials is increasingly recognised, with real-world data (RWD) playing a crucial role in ensuring diverse representation.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI) is making significant strides in oncology, with numerous applications highlighted at recent conferences.
  • Real-world evidence continues to positively impact regulatory applications in oncology, with a focus on "fit for purpose" research.
  • Health equity and trial diversity remain key topics of interest, with efforts being made to assess diversity in clinical research and outcomes in cancer treatment.
  • The adoption of proven cancer prevention and early detection strategies is being expanded, with a focus on reducing cancer risk in all populations.

Need to Know

What is Cancer Care?

Cancer care involves a comprehensive approach to the prevention, early detection, and treatment of cancer. It includes diagnostic testing, treatment planning, and ongoing support to improve survival rates and quality of life for patients.

How important is regular cancer screening?

Regular cancer screening is crucial as it can lead to early detection of cancer, which greatly increases the likelihood of successful treatment. This is particularly true for cancers such as breast, skin, and colorectal cancer.

What are common cancer care services available?

Common cancer care services include skin checks using dermoscopy, mammograms and MRI scans for breast cancer, cervical screenings, various CT scans, and the Faecal Immunochemical Test for bowel cancer detection.

Can I get a single mole check or a full body skin assessment?

Yes, both single mole checks and full body skin assessments are available and are important tools for early detection of skin cancer.

What does a cervical screening involve?

Cervical screening, also known as an HPV smear test, is a preventive measure against cervical cancer and is a critical part of women's health care.

Further Information

The Importance of Cancer Care

Cancer care is essential for managing the disease, with regular screenings like mammograms and colonoscopies playing a pivotal role in early detection. Early identification through such screenings often leads to more effective treatment. Symptoms such as unusual moles or unexpected weight loss should prompt further medical evaluation. Access to diagnostic services, including dermoscopy and MRI scans, is critical for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment planning.

Cancer Care Services

Cancer care services encompass a broad spectrum of diagnostic and support options, including:
- Skin Checks: Dermoscopy allows for detailed examinations of moles, facilitating early skin cancer detection.
- Mammograms and MRI Breast Scans: These are essential tools for early breast cancer screening.
- Cervical Screening (HPV Smear Test): This test is a preventive measure against cervical cancer.
- CT Scans: Used for diagnosing and monitoring various cancers, including those of the brain, chest, and abdomen.
- Bowel Cancer Screening: The Faecal Immunochemical Test (FIT) and colonoscopy are used to detect early signs of bowel cancer.
