Some types of cancer detected at an early stage can be treated without surgery.
Akdeniz University Faculty of Medicine Dean and Head of Radiation Oncology Department Prof. Dr. Drawing attention to the importance of early diagnosis in cancer treatment, Aylin Fidan Korcum Şahin said, "By using special technology, we can treat the patient with one-day treatments as if they were surgically removed, without anesthesia, without surgical intervention, without impairing the quality of life." said.
Prof. Dr. Speaking to Anadolu Agency (AA), Şahin said that it is necessary to raise awareness about cancer, to achieve early diagnosis and treatment.
Stating that cancer can be seen as a necessary opportunity to change a person's life and get rid of bad habits, Şahin stated that they made rapid progress in cancer treatments, and that they offer personalized treatment opportunities by using technological facilities in surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
- "Some of our cancer patients talk about many traumas in their lives"
Pointing out that the stage at which the person is infected is important in treatments, Şahin said:
"We establish a patient-physician relationship. Patients have a duty to fulfill the responsibilities given as much as the physician. In fact, it is not a destiny to be cancer. The number of genetically inherited cancers is much less than it is thought. A healthy life, our commitment to life and our ability to fight against problems are very important as well as external factors. Some of our cancer patients talk about many traumas in their lives. We need to get ourselves out of there by focusing on the solution without enlarging the problems we encounter in our lives. This will also prevent future cancer. "
- "We achieve this thanks to new devices"
Stating that there are always obstacles in front of a person, Şahin continued as follows:
"Many obstacles can arise in our lives such as Kovid-19 or other diseases. It is necessary to think healthy and take healthy steps. You cannot gain anything with fear, fear can only digest you. Taking the necessary precautions and concentrating on what we can do brings our energy to a different point. / p>
In recent years, head neck, lung cancers, especially bladder, breast cancers have increased mostly due to smoking. We also see small amounts of brain tumors. Thanks to early diagnosis, we now have cancer patients that we treat daily and send. By using special technology, we can treat the tumors we caught at a small stage, as if they were surgically removed with one-day treatments, without giving anesthesia to the patient, without surgical intervention, and without impairing the quality of life. We achieve this thanks to the new devices in our center. "
