At present, oncological diseases rank among the biggest threats to health and their treatment represents a severe burden to the organism. If the patient gets in remission, the battle is partly won, however, the follow-up care is highly important as well. In Marianske Lazne you can find multiple methods for regenerating your body after intensive treatment and you can give it a new portion of the much-needed energy.
Oncology distinguishes many different types of tumorous diseases, which unfortunately occur in a growing number of patients. According to statistics, up to one third of the population become ill with some cancer type during their lives. There is therefore a sad likelihood that in a certain manner, each of us gets in contact with an oncological disease during life.
Lung cancer is at present the most widespread worldwide, and due to smoking it affects ever younger patients. Moreover, it is very insidious in that its early stages have no symptoms and in majority cases it is diagnosed by accidentally. When the first medical problems emerge, the carcinoma is often already very big and difficult to treat.
The second position in this gloomy ranking is the breast cancer, which most frequently occurs after the 45th year of life and to a great extent its occurrence is influenced by hereditary factors. Using preventive examinations and self-examinations it can be detected in relatively early stages, which increases the chances of curing. The next in order is the gastric cancer, colon cancer, and rectum cancer.
What support is available for treatments of oncological diseases in Marianske Lazne?
After a completed treatment of oncological diseases, oncological rehabilitations are prescribed in Marianske Lazne. They help to strengthen the physical condition of the patient, alleviating also frequent back and joint pains. Unfortunately, they can´t be applied e.g. to malignant haematological diseases.
The correct use of natural mineral waters for drinking cures helps overall detoxification, similarly to instrument and manual lymphodrainages. A considerable proportion in the patient’s recovery after the difficult period of life is represented also by the quiet and pleasant environment of the spa colonnades, the local climate and the thoughtful care of professionally trained personnel.
Disease in detail
The most generic division of tumorous diseases is to benign and malignant tumours. The first tumour type grows slowly, usually it is sealed and therefore it does not spread to the surrounding tissues or blood circulation or the lymphatic circulation. Metastases are therefore not formed and once the tumour is removed, the problem is in most cases solved.
A much greater danger to the organism is presented by a malignant tumour. It grows quickly and attacks mainly the surrounding tissue. The cancer cells are so aggressive that apart from tissues they in the course of time start disrupting vessel walls and penetrate the blood or lymphatic circulation. In this manner other tumours, i.e. metastases are formed in the body. In this case the removal of the original tumour does not have to be sufficient because at that time the tissue in other parts of the body may be invaded. Malignant tumours therefore often constitute a direct risk to life.
The most frequent oncological diseases in women include the breast cancer; lung cancer and colon cancer are highly widespread as well. Another danger specific to women is the cervical cancer. Men are most frequently affected by lung cancer followed in rank by the prostate cancer, colon cancer and rectal cancer.
For recovery after the demanding treatment of breast cancer, prostate cancer or other oncological diseases, apart from the drinking cure and rehabilitation, also mineral and dry carbonic baths are used, kinesitherapy, and various individual exercises, which you can try out e.g. in the Centralni Lazne or Nove Lazne hotels.
However, one should bear in mind that the spa treatment may only be applied on disease in remission and even in such case everything should be consulted with an oncologist!
