Cancer can be treated by following four methods :

1.   SURGERY : Surgery can be used to prevent, treat, and diagnose cancer (determine how advanced the cancer is).It is done to remove tumors or as much of the cancerous tissue as possible. It is often performed in conjunction with chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

2.   CHEMOTHERAPY : It is a type of cancer treatment that uses  drugs to eliminate cancer cells.

3.   RADIATION THERAPY: It works by damaging a cancer cell's DNA using high- energy radiations , making it unable to multiply. Cancer cells are highly sensitive to radiation and typically die when treated.

4.   IMMNUOTHERAPY : It is designed to induce the patient's own immune system to fight the tumor.

 

Based on the type of cancer, how far it has spread, and other important factors like age and general health , the cancer specialist recommends the best cancer treatment options.
