Cancer: Stages and Tests Recommended to the Patients in Coimbatore District
Every region of the body is susceptible to cancer, which is a prevalent condition. The cancer’s stage provides information on the location, size, and extent of the disease in surrounding tissues, as well as if it has progressed to nearby lymph nodes or other sections of the body. Most cancers go through four stages. A cancer that is further advanced will have higher numbers. The proper diagnosis of cancer cannot be achieved by a single test. A person needs to undergo a number of tests to find out if they have cancer or if another illness (such an infection) is acting like cancer. In order to confirm or rule out the existence of an illness, monitor the disease process, and plan for and assess the efficacy of treatment, effective diagnostic testing is used. Cancer can be diagnosed by imaging, laboratory tests (including tests for tumor markers), tumor biopsy, endoscopic examination, surgery, or genetic testing. The study was carried out to learn the Stages and Tests advised to Patients. The information was gathered by interviewing 20 outpatients in Coimbatore. In the study, the stages of cancer patients in the Coimbatore district were examined, along with numerous tests and treatments for cancer diagnosis.
