Cancer Rehabilitation


A set of disorders where uncontrolled cell division and growth occur is also commonly referred to as "cancer." Cancer can generate a variety of symptoms, depending on its form and type.
Physiotherapy can lessen the physical effects of cancer while increasing a person's capacity for an active, fulfilling life.

Types of cancer :

Cancer can be either benign or malignant. A malignant tumor can spread and infiltrate other organs through the lymphatic system or bloodstream. Benign tumors are incapable of progressing in the same way.

The genesis of a tumor affects the additional classification of the tumor. The term "carcinoma" refers to the most prevalent types of cancer that appear in the breast, prostate, pancreatic, or lung. Sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops in bone or cartilage. Cancer that develops in the blood cells is known as lymphoma or leukemia.

Symptoms of Cancer :

  • • Pain
  • • Lumps
  • • Swelling
  • • Bleeding
  • • Unexplained weight loss
  • • Fatigue
  • • Excessive sweating

The above symptoms may occur in individuals who do not have cancer; therefore they do not confirm the diagnosis. It is diagnosed based on the medical signs and symptoms, blood tests, computed tomography (CT) scan and a microscopic examination of a biopsy sample. This helps the medical staff to understand the nature and the extent of progression.

An expert physiotherapist will conduct a complete assessment of the patient's symptoms and concerns, talk about attainable goals in a given time frame, and develop a treatment strategy tailored to the individual's needs.
