There are some significant concerns, when it comes to standard cancer treatment. Some of the main issues include:
The Canadian Government, itself, has acknowledged these failings. A recent document titled The Health of Canadians: The Federal Role confirms, "…reform of primary health care delivery [...] is essential to the efficient and timely provision of health care in the twenty-first century."
Because of the current shortcomings associated with standard cancer treatment, it’s imperative to seek help from services like CTOAM until precision oncology becomes integrated into the mainstream system.
1. Inaccurate diagnostic tests for cancer
Standard cancer treatment typically begins with diagnostic tests such as Ultrasound and CT scans. These tests:
Fortunately, precision oncology provides technically advanced tests for identifying exactly where the cancer is in your body, its level of aggression, and if your treatment is working optimally.
2. Destructive cancer treatments
Radiation and chemotherapy are standard forms of cancer treatment that work by attacking all rapidly reproducing stem cells in the body. These treatments:
Happily, science has developed targeted cancer therapies that are much more effective than chemotherapy, are less invasive, and have fewer and less severe side effects.
3. One-size-fits-all approach to cancer treatment
For the most part, cancer patients are treated all the same, within standard treatment practice.
The good news is that innovations in personalized cancer research are accessible to cancer patients through services like CTOAM.
4. Long wait times for cancer treatment
Usually it takes many months – if not longer – for a person complaining of potentially cancer-related symptoms to get an accurate diagnosis and access to treatments.
