Why Rela

Not all cancers are identical, so we strive to provide individualistic patient care. Despite being built with advanced technology, patients will be treated under a team of Expert oncologists trained to make every decision by keeping a patient’s safety in mind. As a result, the treatments are always customised to provide specialised care to our patients.

Cancer treatment at Rela

Cancer treatment can effectively control the spread of cancer and prevent its recurrence through medical oncology, surgical oncology, and radiation oncology. These specialised fields work together to remove, kill or damage the cancerous cells in the affected body area.

Medical oncology

Medical oncology focuses on the use of systemic therapies such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy to treat cancer. Chemotherapy uses drugs to destroy cancer cells while preserving healthy cells. Hormone therapy is used to treat cancers such as breast cancer and prostate cancer that are sensitive to hormones. Targeted therapy uses drugs that target specific molecules or pathways that are involved in cancer cell growth and survival.

Surgical oncology

Surgical oncology involves the removal of tumors and other cancerous tissues through surgical procedures. This can include procedures such as lumpectomy, mastectomy, or the removal of organs such as the liver or lungs. Surgical oncologists work closely with medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to determine the best approach for each patient.

Radiation Oncology

Radiation oncology uses high-energy radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. This may involve external beam radiation therapy or brachytherapy, which involves the placement of radioactive sources inside the body near the tumor. Radiation therapy can be used alone or in combination with other treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy.

Diagnostic tools of Oncology

Oncology depends on diagnostic tools like biopsy or removing bits of the tumour tissue and examining it under the microscope. Other diagnostic tools include endoscopy for the gastrointestinal tract, imaging studies like X-rays, CT scanning, MRI scanning, ultrasound, and other radiological techniques, Scintigraphy, Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography, Positron emission tomography and nuclear medicine techniques etc.

Oncologists must first diagnose cancer, which is usually carried out via biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, CT scanning, MRI, PET scanning, ultrasound or other radiological methods. Nuclear medicine can also diagnose cancer, as can blood tests or tumour markers. In addition, oncology is often linked with haematology, the branch of medicine that deals with blood and blood-related disorders.

An oncologist is a doctor who treats cancer and provides medical care for a person diagnosed with cancer. An oncologist may also be called a cancer specialist.


The TrueBeamTM System is an advanced radiotherapy system from Varian Medical Systems that has opened the door to new Possibilities for treating lung, breast, prostate, head and neck and other cancers. It is designed to deliver more safest and most powerful cancer treatments with pinpoint accuracy and precision. It uniquely integrates advanced imaging and motion management technologies within a sophisticated and relaxing architecture that allows our radiation oncologists to quickly offer treatments for patients while monitoring and compensating for tumour motion.


Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan is an imaging test that can help reveal the metabolic or biochemical function of patients’ tissue and organs for early detection and accurate cancer staging. It uses a radioactive drug(tracer) to show both normal and abnormal metabolism of the tracer in diseases before the disease shows up on other imaging tests such as computerised tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This way, it helps the oncologists to accurate analysis of cancer treatment and follow-up accurately.


A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast which enable our oncologists to find the early onset of breast cancer at the earliest, even when there are no symptoms. It is further used for screening by the departments to detect and diagnose breast disease in women with breast problems such as a lump, pain or nipple discharge. Suppose the patients are pregnant and have a medical history or prior surgeries. In that case, they are expected to inform doctors and radiologists before screening as it exposes patients to fewer doses of ionising radiation.

Rela’s multispeciality hospital offers state-of-the-art preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic, and interventional oncology services. In addition, we are reputed to have the best oncologists in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.

Paediatric Oncology

The team of Paediatric Cancer specialists offers holistic care for children, adolescents, and young adults with all types of cancers. Cancers in children are unique, and we understand their special needs, providing them with comprehensive, compassionate care from diagnosis through recovery. All children newly diagnosed with cancer are evaluated, discussed in a multidisciplinary tumour board, and chemotherapy is instituted as per international standard protocols. The various childhood cancers treated include:

  • Blood cancers (Leukemia) like Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, Acute myeloid leukaemia.
  • Lymphomas – Hodgkin’s and Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
  • Bone cancers – Ewing’s sarcoma, Osteosarcoma.
  • Liver cancer – hepatoblastoma.
  • Cancers of the kidney – Nephroblastoma (Wilms tumour).
  • Neuroblastoma.
  • Rhabdomyosarcoma and other soft tissue sarcomas.
  • Germ cell tumours.
  • Brain tumours.

We also offer advanced treatment options including:

  • Allogenic Bone Marrow Transplantation (Matched Related, Matched Unrelated, and Haploidentical) for high-risk and relapsed leukemias and lymphomas.
  • Autologous BMT for lymphoma, neuroblastoma, Ewing sarcoma.
  • Immunotherapy for selected cancers.

Our Experts


Multidisciplinary care is a priority for the Division of Surgical Oncology in the fight against cancer. To guarantee that our patients receive the greatest treatments and care, our skilled surgeons collaborate with medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and other medical team members. They are experts in treating different types of cancer.

  • Surgery
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation treatment

5 Curable Cancers are –

  • Prostate Cancer
  • Thyroid Cancer
  • Testicular Cancer
  • Melanoma
  • Breast Cancer – Early Stage

The latest cancer treatment method, called immunotherapy, targets cancer cells with the immune system. For some patients, interventional radiology offers an alternative to surgery by utilising less invasive procedures involving needles and catheters.

Cancer in stage 4 is typically incurable. Additionally, it is unlikely that the cancer can be totally cured because by the time it is identified, it has typically spread throughout the body. Treatment aims to prolong life and enhance your quality of life.

The type and stage of a person’s cancer, the sort of treatment they can receive, and other factors all affect whether or not their cancer can be cured. Different malignancies have varying chances of being cured. But every cancer requires a unique approach to treatment. Cancer cannot be cured.
