CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE FOR ONCOLOGY (CANCER)The Nayati Cancer Centre for Oncology deals with screening, early detection, staging, treatment and management of cancer in all age groups. The Centre integrates all three divisions of oncology, which includes haemato-medical, surgical and radiation, to bring comprehensive care under one roof. At our cancer centres, we have technologies at par with global standards, highly-experienced doctors who are internationally known for their expertise and trained nursing staff. Our facilities enable us to take care of immunocompromised patients and offer critical care, high-end radiation therapy, bone marrow transplantation, palliative care, plastic and reconstructive surgery, counselling and chemotherapy sessions.
Medical oncology deals with cancer care using chemotherapy, immunotherapy, radiotherapy and targeted therapy. At Nayati, the team works together with radiation and surgical oncology specialists to treat solid tumours and haematological malignancies in children and adults. We also use advanced pharmaco-genomics testing to help predict the effectiveness of a drug in an individual according to their genetics, prior to initiating drug therapy.
- All types of Chemotherapy
- Targeted therapy for adult cancer patients
- Central venous access- PICC Hickman’s catheter and chemo ports
- Intracavitory Chemotherapy
Nayati provides minimal access and open-surgical interventions for various types of cancer. Having earlier worked with some of the best hospitals in India, our experienced team of surgeons is supported by world-class technologies to ensure better surgical outcomes. Laparoscopy is performed both as a diagnostic procedure and a keyhole surgery to examine and treat organs in the belly and pelvic areas. Surgeons at Nayati perform open radical surgeries to remove the tumour as well as the affected organ, often in advanced stages of cancer.

Radiation and Clinical Oncology
Clinical oncology is a form of cancer treatment where doses of radiation are used to kill cancer cells and shrink a tumour. A patient can receive the fastest and most precise radiation therapy with the advanced Versa HD – a radiation therapy machine only available with Nayati in this region. Through this, the radiation dose works three times faster than other radiation machines and helps reduce treatment time for patients. Some of the include procedures include
- 3DCRT (Three-Dimensional Conformal Radiotherapy) IMRT (Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy) IGRT (Image-Guided Radiation Therapy)
Nuclear Medicine & PET-CT
In nuclear medicine, small amounts of radioactive material are administered in the body and their path is tracked through specially-designed cameras for cancer evaluation. It is often injected, inhaled or taken in the form of a pill. Digitally generated on a computer, the images help doctors in diagnosis. At Nayati, we use nuclear medicine for both cancer diagnosis and treatment.
- Whole body PET-CT with Contrast Study.
- Whole body PET-CT with Non Contrast Study.
- Cardiac PET-CT Study.
- Brain PET-CT Study.
Bone Marrow Transplants
Also termed stem cell transplant, bone marrow transplantation is done to replace unhealthy marrow with healthy blood cells. When bone marrow is damaged due to certain cancers, disease or chemotherapy, healthy bone marrow is transplanted, either from the patient’s own body (known as an autologous transplant), or a donor (allogenic transplants) to help in the formation of new and healthy marrow.
- Bone marrow transplantation for both Benign and Malignant disorders

1. What causes cancer?
Things people do
Some cancers are caused by things people do or expose themselves to. For example, tobacco use can cause cancer of the lungs, mouth, throat, bladder, kidneys, and many other organs. Of course, not everyone who uses tobacco will get cancer, but it greatly increases a person’s risk. It increases their chance of developing heart and blood vessel disease, too.
Spending a lot of time in the sun without protection can cause skin cancer. Melanoma is a very serious form of skin cancer linked to UV light from the sun and tanning beds.
Other things people are exposed to
Radiation can cause cancer. For instance, people exposed to nuclear fallout have a higher cancer risk than those who were not exposed. Sometimes, radiation treatment for one type of cancer can cause another cancer to grow many years later. This is why doctors and dentists use the lowest possible doses of radiation for x-rays and scans (much lower than the doses used for cancer treatment).
Certain chemicals have been linked to cancer, too. Being exposed to or working with them can increase a person’s risk of cancer. Call us to learn more about the carcinogens (substances that cause cancer) that may be around you, or see the What Causes Cancer? section of our website.
Genes that run in families
About 5% to 10% of all cancers are linked to genes that are inherited from parents.
No one knows the exact cause of most cases of cancer. We know that certain changes in our cells can cause cancer to start, but we don’t yet know exactly how it all happens. Scientists are studying this problem and learning more about the many steps it takes for cancers to form and grow. See the “What Causes Cancer?” section of our website to learn more about the things that have been linked to this disease.
If you are interested in taking steps to help reduce your cancer risk, see the section below called “Can cancer be prevented?”
2. Can injuries cause cancer?
It’s a common myth that injuries can cause cancer. But the fact is that falls, bruises, broken bones, or other such injuries have not been linked to cancer. Sometimes a person might visit a health care provider for what’s thought to be an injury and cancer is found at that time. But the injury did not cause the cancer; the cancer was already there. It also sometimes happens that a person will remember an injury that happened long ago in the place cancer was found.
Rarely, burn scars can be the site of cancer many years after the burn has healed. Most often, skin cancer is the type that starts in a burn scar.
3. Can stress cause cancer?
Researchers have done many studies to see if there’s a link between personality, attitude, stress, and cancer. No scientific evidence has shown that a person’s personality or outlook affects their cancer risk.
There are many factors to look at in the relationship between stress and cancer. It’s known that stress affects the immune system, but so do many other things. Despite many studies, a link between psychological stress and cancer has not been found.
4. What are the risk factors for cancer?
A risk factor is anything linked to your chance of getting a disease, such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. For instance, exposing skin to strong sunlight is a risk factor for skin cancer, but it’s not linked to colon cancer. Some risk factors can actually cause cancer, while others may simply be more common in people who get cancer. For example, old age by itself doesn’t cause cancer, but it is a risk factor.
Still, risk factors don’t tell us everything. Having one risk factor, or even many, does not mean that someone will get cancer. Some people with one or more risk factors never develop the disease, while others who do develop cancer have no known risk factors. Even when a person who has a risk factor is diagnosed with cancer, there’s no way to prove that the risk factor actually caused the cancer.
There are different kinds of risk factors. Some, like a person’s age or race, can’t be changed. Others are linked to cancer-causing factors in the environment. Still others are related to personal actions, such as smoking. Some factors influence risk more than others, and a person’s risk for cancer can change over time, due to factors such as aging or lifestyle.
Some of the major cancer risk factors that can be controlled:
• Tobacco use
• Physical activity
• Alcohol use
• Sun exposure
• Environmental exposures, such as radon, lead, and asbestos
• Exposure to infections such as hepatitis, HPV, and HIV
5. Is cancer contagious?
In the past, people often stayed away from someone who had cancer. They were afraid they might “catch” the disease. But cancer isn’t like the flu or a cold. You can’t catch cancer from someone who has it. You won’t get cancer by being around or touching someone with cancer. Don’t be afraid to visit someone with cancer. They need the support of their family and friends.
