Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is a type of cancer treatment that harnesses the power of the immune system to fight cancer cells. It works by stimulating or enhancing the body’s natural immune response to recognize and attack cancer cells more effectively.

Who Needs Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy may be recommended for individuals with various types of cancer, including melanoma, lung cancer, kidney cancer, bladder cancer, and certain types of lymphoma. It is typically considered for individuals who have not responded well to conventional treatments or for those with advanced-stage cancers.

When to See a Specialist

If you have been diagnosed with cancer or if you have undergone previous treatments without success, it may be beneficial to consult with a specialist in immunotherapy. They can evaluate your condition, assess your eligibility for immunotherapy, and discuss the potential benefits and risks.

Procedure of Immunotherapy

  • Diagnosis and evaluation: The first step is a thorough evaluation of your cancer type, stage, and overall health. This information helps determine if immunotherapy is a suitable treatment option for you.

  • Selection of immunotherapy drug: Based on your specific cancer type and individual characteristics, the healthcare team will choose the most appropriate immunotherapy drug or combination of drugs.

  • Administration of immunotherapy: Immunotherapy can be administered through different methods, including intravenous (IV) infusion, subcutaneous injections, or oral medications. The treatment schedule may vary, ranging from weekly to monthly sessions.

  • Monitoring and follow-up: Throughout the course of immunotherapy, regular check-ups, imaging tests, and blood work will be conducted to monitor the treatment’s effectiveness and manage any potential side effects.

Road To Recovery

The recovery process during immunotherapy varies depending on individual factors and the specific cancer being treated. Some individuals may experience side effects, while others may have minimal or no adverse reactions. Following the treatment plan, attending follow-up appointments, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can support the recovery process.

Risk Management

Immunotherapy has its potential side effects, which vary depending on the type of immunotherapy drug used. Common side effects may include fatigue, flu-like symptoms, skin rashes, and immune-related adverse events. Close monitoring by healthcare professionals and timely intervention can help manage these risks.

Benefits of Immunotherapy

  • Targeted treatment: Immunotherapy specifically targets cancer cells while sparing healthy cells, resulting in fewer side effects compared to traditional treatments like chemotherapy.

  • Long-term response: In some cases, immunotherapy can lead to durable responses, with the immune system continuing to attack cancer cells even after the treatment is completed.

  • Treatment for various cancers: Immunotherapy has shown efficacy in treating a wide range of cancer types, offering hope for individuals with previously limited treatment options.
