Chemotherapy and pain treatment are now available for patients with cancer. Previously incurable and devastating cancers can be helped by a combination that includes surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Recent trends show a significant improvement in 5-year survival rates from 39% in the sixties to 43% in the seventies to 50% in the eighties.
Today, modern treatment has shifted from specialization to integration of different approaches. Specific cancers are no longer considered to belong to certain specialties. Different methods are now used to target all the sites of disease, using a MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH to the management of cancer.
