Hi, it's not fight against radiotherapy and chemotherapy, it's go along with them. You need to fight against the cancer. During the above said treatments you will be regularly monitored by your Doctors for the toxicities and managed accordingly. Additionally you should be having a positive thoughts and hopes that you will successfully fight against the cancer and follow the instructions given to you by your doctors.

My father in law is suffering from lung cancer and it's spread in brain. Doctors have done radiation therapy. Now they are about to do chemotherapy or targeted therapy. But I have heard that radiotherapy and chemotherapy leads to damaging of healthy cells too which leads to death. Please help me out.

Yes it's true that radiotherapy and chemotherapy do damage normal cells, but normal cells have ability to repair themselves faster, hence do not die. Higher techniques like IMRT, RAPIDARC TOMOTHERAPY, VMAT, which are available in many centres, decrease the radiation to the normal cells and plenty of supportive medicines help you to overcome the toxicities of chemotherapy.

What doctors know is that chemotherapy is poison. What they know is that chemotherapy itself causes cancer. What they know is that there are alternative treatments to cure cancer instead of chemo that kills many people why are doctors forbidden to use them? Are they product money out of it? Is killing people a business foe what?

Hello J... If a substance used in a controlled way and on the targeted tissues then it becomes medicine.. If you use them in excess it will.become poison. There are 100 ways to treat cancer... Even many babas and fakirs claim to cure cancer. Everyone tries to treat in their own way. And chemotherapy doesn't kill patients... But if the cancer has spread above the limits then patients even though given treatment dies. You cannot blame doctor's for that... Doctor is also a human being and not god. Yes some of them do malpractice but you cannot see the whole medical field with the same notion..

My wife is diagnosed with metastasis and surgery is not carried. Should I consult other doctor? Please suggest me.

I am sorry to say that probably she has stage 4 disease without much hopeful. Still you can consult an Oncologist for need ful advice. What I feel is that, if there is not much hope, why to stretch the life to that extent where you can neither live peacefully nor die gracefully.

Hi dear it is cancer, spreading to other body parts and soon it will spread to more body parts. Bcz of age and side effects- I do not recommend chemo. Ther are a variety of chemo drugs in different hospitals. Best course will be cancero medicine course.
