In some cases only stage 3 and 4 cancers can be delayed with chemo - radiation. It is to be remember always that first best and safe treatment for advanced cancers is pain relief treatment with MIPI. Only then one should take other treatments. Pain free journey of cancer ie pain free cancer treatment helps in prolongation of life. Contact on phone or over lybrate for further discussion.
