Cancer

Cancers are complex health conditions characterized by uncontrolled cell growth of tumour cells. A distinction is made between benign tumors and malignant tumors, which are also referred to as malignancies. Cancer cells can also spread to other organs, which is known as metastasis.

Below you will find an overview of the most common types of cancer:

  • Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer

    Non-melanoma skin cancer includes basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. They grow slowly and rarely form metastases.

  • Prostate Cancer

    Prostate cancer is more common in older men. It is the most common type of cancer in men.

  • Liver Cancer

    Liver cancer, also known as hepatic cancer, is a malignant disease of the liver cells and occurs more frequently in old age.

  • Melanoma

    Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that often grows aggressively and can form metastases early on.

  • Kidney Cancer

    Kidney cancer tends to occur at an advanced age and should be treated in an interdisciplinary manner with experts from various disciplines.

  • Carcinoma

    Carcinoma is a malignant tumour that originates in the epithelium and affects the skin and mucous membranes.

  • Testicular Cancer

    Testicular cancer is a malignant tumour of the testicles and occurs in men at a relatively young age.

  • Lung Cancer

    Lung cancer is not only caused by smoking. You can find out more about this topic here.

  • Pancreatic Cancer

    Pancreatic Cancer is a rare and aggressive type of cancer that is often diagnosed late.

  • Leukemia

    Leukemia is also referred to as blood cancer. It can affect not only the blood but also the lymphatic system.

  • Metastases

    A metastasis is the spread of cancer, such as a malignant tumor or satellite tumors. Lymph nodes and other organs can also be affected.

Diagnostics and Therapy

The diagnosis consists of a thorough examination by an oncologist, imaging procedures, biopsies of the tissue and blood tests. This provides the doctor with information about the type of tumor present. Early detection plays a decisive role in cancer diagnostics and is important for treatment and the chances of recovery.

Individual treatment plans are drawn up based on the specific type of cancer, stage and individual patient needs. The most typical treatment approaches include surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and newer methods such as immunotherapy.

It is important that patients are actively involved in their treatment decisions and that open communication is maintained.

From a holistic perspective, other supportive measures can be used. It is important that this is done in consultation with the oncologist and should not be seen as the sole therapy.

Infusion therapies, fever therapy and INUSpheresis®, among others, are used. If micronutrient deficiencies are detected, these should be compensated for with suitable measures.

An interdisciplinary, integrative and individually tailored therapy can bring the greatest success for patients with cancer. We will be happy to help you further.
