Cancer can sometimes spread to other areas of the body, a process known as metastasis. As the cancer spreads and more healthy tissue is destroyed, you may develop serious, life-changing and life-threatening symptoms and conditions.
Cancer affects everybody differently and we know just how hard it can be to receive a cancer diagnosis.
Oncology is a specialist branch of medicine that deals with the assessment and treatment of cancer. A doctor who specialises in this field is a Consultant Clinical or Medical Oncologist.
Whether you are preparing for or currently receiving cancer treatment, or have had treatment in the past, you probably have a lot of questions and concerns. As well as any tiredness and anxiety you may have, it can also often be a very stressful and worrying time for you and your loved ones.
When you choose to have your private cancer treatment at BMI Bath Clinic, you will benefit from streamlined care, easy access to treatment and support tailored to your specific needs in a COVID-19 safe environment.
With five Consultant Oncologists and a dedicated team of cancer specialists working on-site, you will receive expert guidance, support and treatment at every stage of your journey.
Treatment for cancer will depend on a number of factors, including the type of cancer you have, how far it has spread and your general health. Treatment for cancer may be with:
We can help you to access the most appropriate support for your specific condition sooner. If you require radiotherapy, this will be arranged for you in a specialist unit outside the hospital, either in Bath or Bristol.
We always recommend bringing somebody with you to this appointment, like a family member of close friend. When you are discussing cancer treatments, it can be difficult to take everything in at first and having somebody there with you is often a real help.
Everything will always be explained as clearly and simply as possible, but if you have any questions or don’t understand something, it is important to let us know so that we can put that right.
Once everything has been explained to you, we will ask you to sign consent forms regarding your treatment, and you will then be given some time to go away and think about treatment options. This is usually for at least 48 hours.
It is important that you have this time and space to think honestly and realistically about what you want from your treatment, what your goals are for recovery, and whether the recommended treatment is right for you. While we can offer advice about the best treatment options, the decision is always yours and you need the opportunity to come to a decision without any pressure.
Once you have decided to proceed with treatment, you will be booked in for your first session. Your lead Oncology nurse will recap your diagnosis, confirm your consent and talk through the details about your chosen treatment plan once more with you.
The next steps depend on the treatment regime you are on. You may have oral medication, or treatment delivered intravenously (directly into the vein). Treatment is always in a private room for your convenience.
As you progress through your treatment, we will closely monitor and review everything so that we can ensure you are undergoing the most effective treatment. We can tailor and adjust your treatment programme as required.
We have an excellent on-site Physiotherapy team with extensive experience in helping people who are undergoing cancer treatment. They can help with pain, swelling, muscle weakness or stiffness that occurs as a result of your treatment, or to improve your mobility after a period of inactivity.
We work very closely with pain specialists to help manage any symptoms effectively throughout your treatment.
It is so important to get the right nutrients into your body during cancer treatment, but we know that this can often be difficult, particularly when treatment affects your appetite or causes you to feel nauseous. Dieticians are readily available to help you with nutrition advice and support if your appetite changes during your treatment.
Rather than having to wait for a referral, we can book appointments for you directly so that your rehabilitation can proceed promptly with minimal hassle for you.
If you are considering private cancer treatment, we believe you will not find a better place to come for comprehensive support, treatment, care and follow-up than BMI Bath Clinic. Here’s why:
If you have recently received a cancer diagnosis, we know it may be an unsettling, confusing and worrying time. Why not let us help to remove some of the stress? When you book your initial visit to BMI Bath Clinic, you will be able to discuss treatment options with one of our specialist consultants, talk through any concerns or worries you may have in a safe, relaxed environment, and make an informed decision on how best to proceed.
We look forward to welcoming you to BMI Bath Clinic soon and helping to support you through your cancer treatment.
