Lung Cancer: Recurrence after Chemo and Radiation
Hi dr Chris,
Let me introduce myself. My name is Ixx from Indonesia. My father, 53 years old, has lung cancer (non-small cell). He has been diagnosed around February 2013 at NUH Singapore. Chemo and radiotherapy have been given to him, so we stayed at Singapore for a while. One month after all treatments finished, my father did CT scan and doctor said that those cancer cells cannot be seen. So it seemed chemo and radio worked for my father.
But last week, my father went to NUH for routine check up again, did a CT scan again, and apparently those cancer appear again. Doctor are suggesting my father to do biopsy to check whether that is really cancer or not. But my father hesitate to do biopsy and CT scan again since those actually not really good for body itself. And also, let say my father did biopsy and doctor confirmed that it was cancer, he doesn’t feel like want to do chemo again. Since the effect of last time chemo still remains until now, even though last chemo would be around end of March 2013. His taste is still weird, and his body is still not 100% well. So we seek another options and came out to your website www.cacare.com Do you think you can try your best to cure my father? We would like to go there and see you. Is there any appointment I need to make? What do we need to make an appointment? Hope for your reply soon. Thank you so much for your attention.
Reply: No need appointment. Come with all the medical reports and scans.
