THE DIAGNOSIS

The diagnosis is CANCER. WHAT NOW?

The first few weeks of shock and uncertainty after diagnosis are a traumatic experience and in many ways, rob the patient and his/her family of their security as well as of their peace of mind.

We want to assure you that you will be treated with the most advanced equipment and treatment methods available anywhere in the world. Your oncologists specialise in all types of chemo- and radiotherapy and will select the best treatment for you. The doctors also super specialise in all the branches of oncology: haematological oncology, conformal radiation, brachytherapy, neuroradiosurgery, immunotherapy, and treatment with all the latest remedies and techniques.

The oncologists are assisted by competent nurses and radiotherapists to ensure that you will receive the correct treatment as prescribed. Furthermore, you can make use of our support services to help you eliminate or deal with the uncertainty. These services are provided by a team of professional people who specialise in the following fields:

  • Nutrition/Dietetics
  • Counselling/Therapy

Within each specialist field, some of the world's latest treatment methods for patients suffering from life-threatening diseases are used. We would encourage patients and their families to utilise these services to their fullest in order to derive the maximum benefit from the full spectrum of medical treatment.
