Best Cancer Treatment in Mumbai
According to WHO, cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020, or nearly 1 in 6 deaths. But exactly what causes cancer? Cancer is caused due to mutations to the DNA within cells. Basically, the DNA inside a cell is packaged into many individual genes. Each of these individual genes contain a set of instructions telling the cell what functions it needs to perform, how to grow and divide. Errors in these instructions can cause the cell to stop its normal functioning and may allow a cell to turn cancerous, and then it starts spreading in the whole body. The speed of the progression depends upon the type of cancer.
Now this may seem a little scary but according to the data from ‘ourworldindata.org’ website, cancer death rates are falling globally, and the five-year survival rates are rising. And cancer death rates show a 17 percent decline from 1990 to 2016. Also, according to the British Medical Journal’s research done in 2018, the 5 year overall survival in India has improved significantly. Though it is less than many developed countries, India has come a long way since the 1960s and 1970s. This has been made possible due to improvements in cancer screening, prevention, and treatment. And one of the places which gives the best cancer treatments in Mumbai is the ‘Sunrise Oncology Center’.

Chemotherapy is most often used to treat cancer, since cancer cells grow and multiply rapidly compared to most cells in the body. And you can find the best chemotherapy treatment in Mumbai at Sunrise Oncology Center, chemotherapy can be used alone or in a combination to treat a wide variety of cancers. The specialists at Sunrise also use chemotherapy after other treatments, such as surgery, to kill any cancer cells that might have remained in the body even after the other treatments.
3. Bone Marrow Transplant: Some cancers start in the bone marrow and others can spread to it. Cancer attacks the bone marrow, causing it to make too many of some cells that crowd out others or causing it to make cells that aren’t healthy and don’t function in the way that they should. For these cancers to stop growing, they need bone marrow cells to work properly and start making new, healthy cells. That is when bone marrow transplant, also called a stem cell transplant is used. The transplanted stem cells help to rescue the bone marrow by replacing the body’s stem cells that have been affected by the cancer or destroyed during chemo or radiation therapy.

The specialists at Sunrise use the latest and most advanced technology and techniques to perform surgeries and treatments on the patients.

We met Dr. Ashay Karpe when my daughter had to undergo chemotherapy which was a complicated one. I never expected to meet an oncologist like him who is so caring and compassionate towards his patients. He doesn’t confuse you or make you feel anxious. Dr. Ashay answers all our queries and makes it clear by giving every detail at appropriate time. My daughter has completed her chemo and is also doing the follow-ups which is highly recommended by doctor for complete recovery. Thanks for giving great fellow feeling and strength to my daughter in her painful journey. I would highly endorse if anyone would like an extraordinary oncologist that is Dr. Ashay Karpe.
I was diagnosed with Tongue Cancer (Stage 4) in July 2019. Dr. Vijay Sharnangat prescribed Chemo and Radiation Therapy treatment and results were unbelievable. The team of doctors and care takers at Sunrise Oncology ensured that I get the best of the treatment. I am absolutely normal and disease free. I owe a lot of my recovery to my great oncologists at Sunrise Oncology.
I continued working through my whole treatment except for the 6 weeks of radiation. My doctors, care takers, family and friends were all a big contributor to my recovery and wellbeing. As it’s said,” If I can do it you can too." Don’t lose the faith and confidence. All the best & God Bless!
I thank Dr. Ashay Karpe for having very successfully managed the disease, life and also the lifestyle. It was never a point where you kept recommending medications which continually caused stress and extreme discomfort. It has always been the right mix of medication with patient care and concern. In these times, there’s also a concern about whether the treatment is being guided by personal gains but in your case it was the opposite. For you only the patient health, care and comfort was the drive. This also lends so much additional comfort to the patient and family. I strongly recommend your participation to anybody who needs the right oncology expertise and counsel.
I was diagnosed for non-hodgkin lymphoma (DLBCL) on my left leg in Mar-2015. I took my treatment under Dr. Bharat Bhosale. Right from my consulting day to my last chemo he ensured that I am well informed of all the aspects of my disease, treatments and costs. I thank him for his sincere and proactive efforts in handling my case. I also thank him for giving moral support by constant encouragement, showcasing other of his patients / friends cases who have overcame cancer, for being available anytime for any of my queries. I once again thank you Dr. Bharat for all your efforts in giving me the best treatment.
My mom was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, on her left leg, in November 2012. My mom's doctor was Dr. Bharat Bhosale. I do not have words to express how grateful we are to have such an amazing, caring, encouraging and a loving doctor. Thank you is not enough. I never saw any doctor who cares so much about his patients and the bond he makes with patients. A great doctor, very positive motivator and very supportive. The relationship he makes with the patients are amazing, that itself boosts the patient's attitude towards cancer and it's treatment. The treatment and the support that my mom received was incredible. There were times when my mom was very fatigued and could not stay long for her appointments, Dr. Bharat often came to see my mom and talked to her. My mom has no words to express her gratitude to Dr. Bharat.
