For this reason, researchers not only seek medicines to prevent and cure the disease but also drugs to make life more comfortable for people with cancer. Cancer management Once cancer is diagnosed, the patient may require medical treatment and specialized care for months, and often years. The principal modes of therapy – surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy – may be given alone or in combination. Strong emphasis is now placed on the development of specialized.
