Cancer treatments in Switzerland - Ticino

Cancer therapy depends, among other things, on the type of cancer, the size of the tumor and whether it has already formed metastases. The surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy continue to play an important role in the treatment of many tumors.

  • Tumor surgery

    Surgery, if possible, is still always the first choice in tumor treatment. The goal is to completely remove a malignant tumor. Depending on the location of the tumor, chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy may be prescribed before or after surgery to reduce the size of the tumor or destroy any tumor residues.

  • Chemotherapy

    Chemotherapy inhibits or prevents the cancer cells from replicating. The side effects of chemotherapy result from the drugs also attacking healthy cells, such as roots of the hair, mucous membranes and blood-forming bone marrow.

  • Radiotherapy

    Radiotherapy uses ionising rays to prevent the growth of and destroy tumors. With today’s computer programs it is possible to use radiation therapy in a highly targeted manner. This protects the surrounding healthy tissue and reduces the side effects.
