About The Journal
Oncology– It is a branch of science which deals with tumors and cancers. Oncology as a word derived from two separate words. The word “onco” means bulk, mass, or tumor while “logy” means study.
Cancer– Each cell of the body has a tightly regulated system which controls their growth, maturity, reproduction and eventual death. Cancer begins when cells in a part of the body start to grow and which cannot be controlled. Cancer starts because of out-of-control growth of abnormal cells.
In this journal, we publish original research and review articles. We accept papers on all general aspects of oncology research including epidemiology of cancer, radiobiology, surgical oncology, radiation oncology and chemotherapy. All articles are peer reviewed prior to publication.
Bone cancer– A neoplastic growth of tissue in bone causes Bone cancer. Two types of abnormal growths found in the bone. It can be either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Bone cancer can be developed two ways- Primary bone cancer (cancer initially formed in the cells of the bone), secondary cancer (starts elsewhere in the body and afterward spread to the bone)
Cancer Therapeutics– This study aims at development, evaluation and implementation of new treatments. This helps us to study cancer biology and pathology, research methodologies, regulatory issues, drug development, and types of cancer treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and many others.
Carcinoma– A carcinoma is a type of cancer which begins in a tissue that lines the inner or outer surfaces of the body, and generally arises from cells originating in the endodermal or ectodermal germ layer during embryogenesis.
Hematology– Hematology is the important branch of medicine which is concerned with the study, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases related to the blood. Hematology is practiced by Doctors, researchers who deal with the diagnosis, treatment and overall management of people with blood disorders ranging from anemia to blood cancer.
Integrative Medicine– Integrative medicine is also known as integrated medicine and integrative health in the United Kingdom that combines alternative medicine with evidence-based medicine. Proponents claim that it focuses on wellness and health of the person rather than treating disease.
Liver Cancer– Liver cancer is also known as hepatic cancer that originates in the liver. Livers are discovered on medical imaging equipment or present themselves symptomatically as an abdominal mass, nausea, liver dysfunction abdominal pain, yellow skin.
Lung Cancer– It is a malignant lung tumor which gets developed by uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. If the tumor is untreated, this growth will spread beyond the lung by the process of metastasis into nearby tissue or other parts of the body.
Oncogenes– An oncogene is a gene which has the potential to cause cancer. In tumor cells, Oncogenes are often mutated or expressed at high levels. Most normal cells will undergo a programmed form of rapid cell death (apoptosis) when critical functions are altered. Activated oncogenes can cause those cells designated for apoptosis to survive and proliferate instead.
Skin cancers – It arises from the skin. Development of abnormal cells which have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body causes skin cancer. Basal cell cancer grows slowly and will damage the tissue around it but is unlikely to spread to distant areas or result in death.
Prostate cancer– It starts when cells in the prostate gland start to grow uncontrollably. The prostate is a gland that found only in males. It makes some of the fluid that is part of semen. The position of the prostate is below the bladder and in front of the rectum. The size of the prostate changes with respect to age. In younger men, it is about the size of a walnut, but it may be much larger in older men. Just behind the prostate are glands known as seminal vesicles that make most of the fluid for semen. Urethra, is a tube that carries urine and semen out of the body There are other types of prostate cancer such as Small cell carcinomas, Transitional cell carcinomas, Neuroendocrine tumors (other than small cell carcinomas), Sarcomas.
Breast cancer– Breast cancer starts when cells in the breast begin to grow uncontrollably. These cells usually form a tumor that can often be seen on an x-ray or felt as a lump. The tumor is malignant (cancerous) if the cells can grow into (invade) surrounding tissues or spread (metastasize) to distant areas of the body. Breast cancer occurs almost entirely in women, but men may get it, too. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts which carry milk to the nipple (ductal cancers). Some start in the glands that make breast milk (lobular cancers).
Gynecological Oncology– Gynecologic oncology is a specialized field of medicine which covers the cancers of the female reproductive system, including uterine cancer, ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, vaginal cancer, and vulvar cancer.
