What is Cancer? Types of Cancer and Treatment

Cancer is well on its way to becoming a chronic disease, like Diabetes or Hypertension, which one can manage, control or even cure. HIV/AIDS is a case in comparison. Once thought to be a dreaded disease, with no prospect of control, or treatment of its complications, has since evolved in to a manageable disease. Patients can now look forward to a good quality of life thanks to availability of drugs which India can rightfully claim to be have greatly contributed by economically producing drugs of high quality.

Cancer diagnosis can be devastating to the patient as well as to the entire family which can put them into extreme levels of anxiety, fear and confusion.
