Posted by Southlakeoncology on June 6th, 2014

There are many different cancer treatment options available in Texas. Some of the best oncologists can be found at these cancer centers. The cancer centers in Texas use state-of-the-art equipment for curing cancer. They will develop a customized treatment plan based on the type and stage of your cancer. Some treatments used to fight cancer:

Chemotherapy

Using drugs to cure cancer is known as chemotherapy. Drugs are injected into the body that destroys the infected cells from the body. There are side-effects of this therapy which can include loss of hair and hormonal imbalances.

Prostate Seed Implants

In this process tiny radioactive seeds are placed near the prostate cancer tumour. The energy that is radiated from the seeds transfers to the tumour destroying the infected cells. The entire process takes about one hour and after that, the patient is free to go home with a family member or friend driving. The best part of using such a technique is that you can resume your normal routine within a day or two.

Radiation therapy

There are two types of radiation therapy. One is radiation therapy with intensity modulated radiation therapy and the other is radiation therapy with image guided radiation therapy. In modulated radiation, thin beams of radiation are projected to the target location in a three-dimensional pattern. This therapy should be administered by a professional or it may lead to serious consequences. Image guided radiation therapy is combined with intensity modulated therapy resulting in the best cancer therapy using radiation.

Mammosite Therapy

This therapy is used for the patients suffering from breast cancer in the initial stages. In this process, a small balloon is positioned over the cancerous tumour cavity. The balloon expands over a period of time to allow the radiation to penetrate the site. It is a very easy procedure which only takes a few minutes twice a day. Within a few days, the process is completed. This reatment has become a viable option for females in Texas.

An oncologist will review all findings to determine which therapy is best for each patient based on the type and stage of cancer. Alternative cancer therapy in Texas combines many methods and therapies to get the best possible results for each patient.
