What are the main challenges of liver cancer surgery?
NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital answeredThe liver is an extremely well vascularized structure so one of the major issues is making sure that the operation is performed safely to minimize blood loss. At NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, an entire team of anesthesiologists, surgeons, and hepatologists are involved in treating patients during and after surgery to minimize blood loss and reduce the damage that may occur from removing a piece of the liver.
What are the treatments for papillary carcinoma?
Papillary carcinoma grows slowly and is highly treatable. Your doctor will work with you to select the best treatment approach for you. Therapeutic options include:
- Surgery: The most common treatment for papillary carcinoma is surgical removal of the breast (mastectomy). This approach helps reduce the chances of the cancer recurring.
- Hormone therapy: Rarely, hormone therapy may be recommended for women with papillary carcinoma
- Radiation therapy: A course of radiation therapy following surgery may help ensure that all cancer cells have been eliminated from the body.
How do medications treat fallopian tube cancer?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Chemotherapy is made up of a variety of medicinal substances that kill cancer cells. Cancer cells often grow and divide more quickly than normal cells, so chemotherapeutic agents are usually targeted at fast growing cell populations, killing them alone. This is why people often lose hair or skin cells while undergoing chemotherapy; hair and skin are made up of some of the fastest-growing cells in the body, so the chemotherapy drugs tend to target them, too.
