Dear prof chris,

In nov 2013 my father was diagnosed by dr PE. with lung cancer that spread in lymph nodes n adrenal (non-small lung cancer) and he got biopsy with dr AT. dr PE recommend us to dr Lim for the oncologist. my father get chemotherapy with alimta, carboplatin, avastin that done every 3 weeks.
after the first chemo he felt pain in his neck we already told dr lim adn we went to met ENT dr RB and he gave medicine. after second chemo he felt pain in his tongue and we told dr lim and he recommend to see dental dr Chan so we went there to and also went back to ent dr RB and he said it just small infection so doctor gave medicine.
before third chemo he done the ct scan and the cancer shrink about 50% dr lim said but he still felt pain in his neck, tongue and teeth and we told dr lim n ent doctor.ent doctor give medicine n said if he still felt pain maybe he need a ct scan when the next chemo.
a week after the fourth chemo my father get jejunum perforation at his stomach and got operation in indonesia at 18 feb 2014.after his recovery we go back to singapore to meet dr lim in 19 march 2014.when we meet him he stop the chemo because my father still weak n get pain inside his right mouth. we decide to met anothet ent dr CCT in 20 march n doctor said we should do mri tongue urgently and the same we do MRI. In 21 march we see dr CCT about the mri and he said my father got tumour in his tongue and need radiotheraphy that dr lim said too.
So we met dr LKS he gave option for us (do radiotherapy for 6-7weeks for tongue but he worried about lung n stomach or 2 weeks radiotherapy and continue with chemo for tongue, lung, stomach or do chemo for tongue, lung and stomach).
My family told us about you and penang cancer centre so we want to know more about that.
