4 Other Ways to Treat Cancer If Chemotherapy Is Not Effective

4 Other Ways to Treat Cancer If Chemotherapy Is Not Effective
4 Other Ways to Treat Cancer If Chemotherapy Is Not Effective - Cancer is a deadly non-communicable disease, following the position of heart disease which ranks top. One treatment for patients with this disease is chemotherapy. However, sometimes the success of chemotherapy depends on the condition of each patient. Well, if chemotherapy is deemed ineffective, then patients must undergo other ways to treat cancer.

How to treat cancer if chemotherapy is not effective

Your body consists of millions of cells. Each damaged cell will change with a new cell by itself. But cell development can be abnormal and cause cancer. This deadly disease can attack any body part. So that abnormal cell development does not spread and stop, cancer patients need to take special treatment, such as chemotherapy.

However, cancer cells in the body may not respond to chemotherapy. Maybe the tumor continues to grow and does not shrink, the cancer metastasizes, the symptoms reappear and get worse. If the patient experiences such a situation, it is likely that the patient will be transferred to other cancer treatments, such as

1. Radiation therapy
Radiation therapy

This method might be recommended by a doctor if the chemotherapy you are taking is less successful in treating cancer. Radiation therapy relies on radiation to kill cancer cells and reduce tumor size. The way it works is to damage DNA in cancer cells to the extent that the cell can no longer repair itself. The cancer cell will stop giving up and eventually die.

In addition to killing cancer cells, this cancer treatment also has several advantages, such as causing moderate pain, rarely causing hair loss, relatively safe because organ damage near the tumor is very small.

Even so, radiation therapy still has the potential to cause tissue damage around the tumor, treatment is usually carried out for 5 days a week, the cost is quite expensive, and causes nausea, vomiting, red skin accompanied by feeling sore.

2. Immunotherapy (immune therapy)


Some types of cancer do not respond well to radiation or chemotherapy so it is necessary to try immunotherapy as another way to treat cancer. The goal is to increase the body's immune system to fight cancer cells as well as fight infections or foreign pathogens.

The therapeutic methods carried out include the administration of monoclonal antibodies (synthesis antibodies to bind cancer cells), cancer vaccines, adoptive cell transfers (lifting T cells and modifying them), and checkpoint inhibitors (T cell stimulant drugs).

Immunotherapy can increase the success of other cancer treatments. Although it causes coughing, nausea, skin rashes, and fatigue, these side effects are lighter than chemotherapy. It's just that it's still at risk of causing complications in healthy people, such as the lungs, intestines, and kidneys.

3. Hormone therapy

Hormone therapy

If other cancer treatments are not effective, you might be recommended to take hormone therapy. This therapy is usually carried out in patients with prostate cancer or breast cancer that is strongly associated with hormones in the body.

The purpose of this therapy is to keep the production of hormones in the body balanced. This treatment may involve a surgical procedure, such as removal of the ovary or testes accompanied by administration of medication.

This alternative cancer treatment can prevent cancer from metastasizing and reduce the risk of recurrence of cancer after surgery. Unfortunately, this treatment only works on cancer that requires body hormones, causing side effects such as decreased sex drive, impotence, vaginal dryness, and fatigue.

4. Target therapy 

Target therapy

This therapy targets to destroy cancer cells through drugs. Unlike chemotherapy, this cancer treatment does not affect healthy cells around the cancer. This therapy detects certain genetic abnormalities in cancer cells so that it works best when combined with other treatments.

There are various methods used in target therapy to fight cancer, namely:
  • Block or turn off chemical signals that stimulate the growth of cancer cells 
  • Changing proteins in cancer cells so that they kill cells 
  • Prevent cancer cells from triggering new blood vessels 
  • Triggers the body's immune response to destroy cancer cells 
  • Giving toxic substances to cancer cells to destroy them without affecting other healthy cells

Although it targets directly to kill abnormal cells and is thought to be able to treat cancer, this method still has weaknesses. Its weaknesses such as cancer cells become immune to certain drugs, only effective in dealing with tumors with specific genetic mutations, and cause diarrhea, liver problems, and blood clots.

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Patients with Cervical Cancer

Symptoms, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Patients with Cervical Cancer - Cervical cancer is a malignant tumor that is often found in women, and is the only cancer that has a known cause. Cervical cancer can be caused by the HPV virus, and the HPV virus can be transmitted through physical contact, in more than 10 years incubation period, but cervical cancer can be prevented and can be measured, by understanding the symptoms of cervical cancer, and properly screening and knowing early, with quickly treated.

What are the symptoms of cervical cancer?

1. Associated with cervical erosion

Usually people with cervical cancer are mostly associated with cervical erosion, it can be through pap smear or other tests to diagnose this disease.

2. Contact bleeding 

Contact bleeding is the most typical symptom of cervical cancer, around 70% -80% of patients experience bleeding also in the vaginal part. When after having sexual intercourse or doing a gynecological examination, or straining during bowel movements, from the vagina can come out a mixture of blood mixed with fluid

3. Irregular bleeding in the vagina

For women who have experienced menopause for a long time, and suddenly without any reason experience "cramps". The amount of bleeding is not much, not accompanied by abdominal pain, lumbago and other symptoms, very easily ignored. This is an early symptom of cervical cancer, patients in old age can do a gynecological examination, or through a colposcopy examination to ascertain the disease.

4. Pain

The patient's lower abdomen or waist is often hit by pain, sometimes the pain also attacks the upper abdomen, upper and pelvic legs, during menstruation, defecation, or sexual intercourse, the pain will worsen, especially when inflammation retreats along the uterosacral ligament extending or spreading along the bottom of the ligament, forming chronic inflammation of the parametric connective tissue, when thickening of the main ligament of the cervix, the pain will worsen. Each time touching the cervix, directly causing the iliac fossa, lumbosacral pain, there are some patients who even experience symptoms of nausea, and other symptoms.

5. Vaginal fluid increases

Clinically, about 75% -85% of patients have different stages of secretion, mainly due to tumor stimulation, the function of the secretion of cervical gland hyperthyroidism, producing mucus like vaginal discharge. Abnormal leucorrhoea, including excessive fluids and smells and changing colors, is an early symptom of cervical cancer, can do a pap smear examination or iodine test, and other types of examination.

Common method of diagnosis of cervical cancer

1. Blade cervix cytologic examination (Cervical Pap)

Is the main method for detecting lesions of cervical cancer precursors and early stage cervical cancer. But be careful with the position of the material taken and careful microscopic examination, the false negative level can be 5% -10%, therefore, it must be combined with clinical conditions and carry out periodic examinations, as a method for screening.

2. Iodine

The cervical or vaginal squamous epithelium is normally rich in glycogen, which can be brown after being given iodine fluid, while the columnar epithelial cervix, cervical erosion, and abnormal squamous epithelium (including squamous metaplasia, dysplasia, carcinoma in situ and invasive carcinoma area) are not glycogen , it is colorless. In the clinical cervix exposed to the vaginal speculum, after wiping the mucus surface, applying iodine solution, to the cervix and fornix, if an abnormal iodine-negative area is found, it can do a biopsy and pathological examination for this area.

3. Biopsy of the cervix and cervical canal

Pap smears in the cervix are more than Class Ⅲ ~ Ⅳ, but if the biopsy of the cervix is ​​negative, at the squamous column junction, the cervix at points 6, 9, 12 and 3: takes four points of biopsy or in the area of ​​colorless iodine tests and suspected cancer sites , take some tissue and excisional biopsy or apply a small curette to scrape the endocervix sent for pathological examination.

4. Colposcopy

Colposcopy cannot directly diagnose carcinoid tumors, but can help choose the location of the biopsy to perform a cervical biopsy. According to statistics, biopsy with the help of colposcopy, the diagnostic accuracy for early cervical cancer can be achieved at around 98%. However, colposcopy is not a substitute for Pap smears and biopsies, nor can it find lesions in the cervical canal. Cancer experts at the Guangzhou Modern Cancer Hospital warn: a diagnosis of cervical cancer can help people to detect cervical cancer in a timely manner, to avoid delays in cancer treatment cervix. 

Treatment of cervical cancer

There are many factors that must be considered before deciding how to treat cervical cancer, including tumor size, age of cervical cancer patients and overall health conditions, as well as stadium and other levels. The level of malignancy of cervical cancer is high, 70% of cervical cancer patients when diagnosed are already at an advanced stage. Cervical cancer treatment includes surgical removal, western-eastern medical collaboration treatment, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and others.

Currently, the most common way to treat cervical cancer is surgery and radiotherapy. Surgery is suitable for early-stage cervical cancer, the preferred operation is radical hysterectomy (surgical removal of the entire uterus), which is to remove the uterus from the vagina and parametric tissue, while simultaneously cleaning bilateral lymph nodes in the pelvis, if there is no pathological changes can be considered not to be appointed. The advantage of treatment with surgery in the case of an early stage is that it is enough to have one surgery to clear cancer lesions, a short treatment period. The disadvantage is the wide scope of appointment, after surgery there may be a disruption in the function of urination in a certain level and other complications, it takes a break and exercise some time just to recover.

Radiotherapy is suitable for cervical cancer in all stages, even advanced cervical cancer. For older people, lack of heart function who cannot undergo surgery, radiotherapy is a very good way to treat cervical cancer. However, radiotherapy has certain complications, the most important of which is radioactive rectum and bladder infection, requiring active treatment and new breaks to recover slowly.

Radioparticle treatment is also one of the effective treatment methods for cervical cancer. Cancer of the cervix is ​​sensitive to radioactive light, early stage or advanced cervical cancer all have fairly good treatment results. Radioparticle treatment is carried out by implanting the radioparticles into the tumor under CT or ultrasound guidance, these particles in the tumor will continue to emit radioactive rays, treat tumors and cut off the pathway to spread the tumor.

From here it can be seen that there are many kinds of ways to treat cervical cancer, cervical cancer patients are expected not to give up first, provided they can work with doctors, choose the right cervical cancer treatment methods for themselves, thus effectively controlling cervical cancer.

4 Things You Need to Notice If You Want to Return to Work After Stroke

4 Things You Need to Notice If You Want to Return to Work After Stroke - Nearly one third of cases of stroke occur in productive age (less than 65 years). However, returning to work after a stroke might be a bit of a challenge for you. Strokes can cause rapid damage to the brain and leave a number of effects on the body that appear afterwards.

Some of the consequences that may occur after a stroke include blurred vision in one or both eyes, weakness of the body which causes difficulty walking or lifting and carrying weights, to make it less sensitive. All of these impacts can affect how you move. Therefore, first consider the following tips if you want to go back to work after a stroke.

What needs to be considered before you return to work after a stroke :

1. Consult a doctor first

If you were previously a very active person, a stroke recovery period that mostly involves resting at home might make you feel "itchy" wanting to get back on the move. Some people may even experience depression or anxiety when they no longer work.

But before establishing the intention to return to work after a stroke, you certainly have to discuss it with your doctor first. Ask your doctor whether your condition is stable enough to move back. Also ask what work activities you can do with the minimum risk.

2. Ask yourself, am I ready to work again?

If your doctor has given you the green light, then you need to ask yourself - are you really ready to work again?

To help you decide, try asking yourself this:
  • Have you been strong enough to move for a long time (eg gardening or cleaning up your house) 
  • Are you ready for the risk that strokes can occur again as a result of your return to work? 
  • Is your health insurance still able to cover the costs if you have another stroke? 
  • Do you want to return to work full time or part time? 
  • Do you want to go back to the same company, work, and responsibilities or want to try something different?

Remember that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions. You are the one who understands yourself the most, then follow your heart and see also how strong your physical health condition is to move back.

3. Ask for support from your family and office where you work

After you are sure to return to work and your health condition is adequate, now is the time for you to ask for help and support from people around you. Explain to them that you need help to maintain your health after a stroke.

Also tell your office colleagues what to do when you have to help you when you have a recurrent stroke, who to contact during an emergency, or even help you avoid things that can trigger a relapse stroke. Support and cooperation with colleagues in the office is very important when you return to work after a stroke.

4. Don't be disappointed if your work performance decreases

Getting back to work after being sick will certainly feel different from before when you were still fit. Don't get too drawn up thinking about declining work performance. Changes in the brain and body after stroke will certainly affect your productivity in the office. So, you should not expect too high to not be affected by stress.

Stress can increase blood pressure which can trigger your condition worse. Stagnant forces you to work overtime or take on more difficult work before your condition is properly restored.

Often Ignored, Jaw Pain Can Be A Symptoms Of A Heart Attack In Women

Often Ignored, Jaw Pain Can Be A Symptoms Of A Heart Attack In Women
Often Ignored, Jaw Pain Can Be A Symptoms Of A Heart Attack In Women - Heart attacks come, what women feel is different from what men feel. Symptoms of a heart attack in men are usually easier to detect. For example chest pain, excessive sweating, nausea, vomiting, until fainting. On the other hand, most symptoms of a heart attack in women tend to be vague and even have nothing to do with the heart. One of them is marked by a jaw pain that does not heal.

What does the jaw have to do with symptoms of a heart attack?

If all this time you have understood the symptoms of a common heart attack, such as pain in the chest or left arm to faint, you also need to know the signs of a heart attack that is often overlooked. Especially for women, a sign of a heart attack is often mistaken for other minor ailments, one of which is a jaw pain.

Heart attacks occur when oxygen-rich blood flow cannot enter the heart muscle so the heart does not get oxygen. If this is not immediately treated, the heart muscles will be damaged slowly and trigger a heart attack.

When the heart's work is disrupted, the surrounding organs will also be affected. It's not just pain around the heart, it can also cause jaw pain. Why is that?
The nerves in the chest and heart are connected to the neck and jaw. When the heart nerve is disrupted, the nerves that are connected to the neck and jaw will also be problematic.

Jaw pain from a heart attack is usually felt in the lower left jaw. However, the severity can vary from person to person. There are those who experience severe jaw pain, some are just feeling an uncomfortable sensation in the jaw.

How to distinguish a sick jaw from a heart attack and what isn't  

It may seem a little difficult to tell which jaw is due to a heart attack and which is not. However, at least you can try by moving your jaw section.

First, move your jaw to the right and left. If after getting moved the pain gets worse, then the jaw pain that you feel is not caused by a heart attack.

Jaw pain can also be caused due to disruption of the jaw joint. This jaw joint serves to talk, chew, or yawn. So, if you feel a jaw hurt while eating, then this is definitely not caused by a heart attack.

Easily, jaw pain due to a heart attack occurs without cause and does not heal. This is also usually accompanied by other heart attack symptoms.

How do you deal with a sore jaw due to a heart attack?

Even though you have pocketed information about jaw pain, you may still be confused about which ones include symptoms of a heart attack and which ones are not and how to overcome them.

As a first aid, try compressing with ice cubes for 10 minutes to help reduce jaw pain. If the pain does not decrease, then it's time for you to consult a doctor to determine the cause.

Tell your doctor about how severe your jaw is, how long your jaw hurts, and whether there are other symptoms that accompany it. If accompanied by chest pain, shortness of breath, excessive sweating, vomiting, until fainting, then you most likely experience symptoms of a heart attack.

Characteristics of Intraductal Papilloma, Benign Tumors in the Breast

Characteristics of Intraductal Papilloma, Benign Tumors in the Breast - When the tumor only grows on large milk ducts, it usually grows near the nipple. The tumor in the form of a small lump is called a solitary intraductal papilloma and can cause discharge from the nipple or bleeding. This type of lump has no problem with the need for higher cancer. Don't know what caused this benign tumor.

Tumors that grow on a channel that is farther away from the nipple usually produce a small set of tumors. Something tumor that makes your breast cancer higher. This condition is called multiple papilloma

Besides intraductal papilloma, there is also a tumor called papillomatosis. This is a condition that shows a normal increase in cells in the canal.

What are the symptoms of intraductal papilloma?

Symptoms or conditions of intraductal papilloma are indeed difficult to recognize. It's important to discuss it with your doctor. Intraductal papilloma can also cause breast enlargement, lumps, or pain, even though the lump cannot be felt.

If the doctor admits there is intraductal papilloma, the doctor can inflame breast ultrasound for the patient. This test is more effective in showing papillomas than mammograms. Other possible tests are also:
  • Breast biopsy to examine tissue for cancer cells 
  • Microscopic examination of the breast to look for cancer cells 
  • Ductograms or X-rays that use color contrasts and are injected into the milk ducts

Treating intraductal papilloma

The standard of treatment for this condition usually involves surgery to remove the papilloma and the affected part of the milk duct. This tissue will then be tested to detect the presence of cancer cells. If a test on the removed tissue shows cancer cells, you may need further action.

What will happen after that?

Surgical removal of intraductal papilloma is usually only done for one papilloma, and the results are almost always good. However, women who have multiple papilloma and women under 35 and are diagnosed with papilloma should consult a doctor. This consultation serves to determine the extent of the increased risk of breast cancer in patients.

Treatment for intraductal papilloma can be frightening for patients, but can provide information about the support community or counselor who can help patients in their treatment.

How can we prevent intraductal papilloma?

There is no specific way to prevent the growth of intraductal papillomas. However, breast detection at home every month, checking your breasts regularly at your doctor, and undergoing a routine mammogram can reduce risk and help you deal with cancer earlier. If there are concerns about breast health, contact your doctor immediately.

When Do Women Need to Take Mammography Screening, and Should Often Frequent?

When Do Women Need to Take Mammography Screening, and Should Often Frequent?
When Do Women Need to Take Mammography Screening, and Should Often Frequent? - Almost every adult woman is advised to undergo mammography regularly during the cycle. Mammography is a breast examination technique to detect and diagnose breast cancer. Activities that are very beneficial for the family. So, do women have to start mammography at how many times, and have to do it often? Here's the explanation.

What are mammography?

Mammography works to detect and diagnose breast problems or diseases, including breast cancer. The faster the mammography is done, for example it is easier to be treated and cured.

Mammography cannot allow breast cancer, but it can save lives by detecting cancer as early as possible even if you don't show any symptoms.

What is the mammography like to detect breast cancer?

Mammography is a medical procedure that uses low-dose x-rays to detect abnormal performance in breast tissue, which can show confirmation of cancer. Basically, a mammogram is an x-ray for the chest.

During shooting, you may be asked or sit from the test facility. You will be affixed to the X-ray scanner, then a compressor consisting of two plastic plates will cut you down to flatten the tissue. This will reflect the results of a clearer picture of your breast. You may be required to hold your breath every time you earn an image. During a mammogram, you may feel a little or uncomfortable, but it won't last long.

After the procedure is complete, the mammography report will be ready in 30 days

In mammograms, dense breast tissue appears white while low density fatty tissue will be gray. The presence of tumor cells will be shown with white images just like dense breast tissue.

During the procedure, the doctor will check the results of the images displayed on the scanner screen and ask the radiologist to take some additional pictures if the results that already appear are less clear or need further examination. Don't panic, this is common to do.

What age should mammography be, and how often should it be?

For most women who are not at high risk of breast cancer, regular mammograms do not need to start before the age of 50 years. But if you are not at high risk and still want to be vigilant, you may choose to undergo mammography for the first time at around 40-44 years. If the results are normal, wait until your 50th birthday to get the next mammogram.

What is important to understand, the risk of breast cancer increases with age. That is why it is very important for all women of menopause to have regular mammography.

The cancer foundation in the United States, The American Cancer Society, recommends that women at risk for breast cancer should have an average mammography starting at age 45 and continuing regularly every following year.

Women aged 45 to 54 years must get mammography every year. Meanwhile, women aged 55 years and over must mammography every 2 years after their first mammography, or can continue screening once a year.

If you have got your first mammogram, screening should continue as long as you are healthy and are expected to live another 10 years or longer.

Discuss with the doctor for more details

Basically, when you have to start getting a mammogram and how routine it must be for the future is a personal decision between you and your doctor. If you are over 40 years old, talk to your doctor when you should start screening mammograms.

Some doctors may recommend starting mammography earlier than 40 after seeing your risk factors.

Process of The Occurrence of Liver Cancer and The Way of Treatment Liver Cancer That You Must Know

Process of The Occurrence of Liver Cancer and The Way of Treatment of Liver Cancer That You Must Know
Process of The Occurrence of Liver Cancer and The Way of Treatment Liver Cancer That You Must Know - The rate of liver cancer is ranked 6th worldwide  and His death rate is at number 3

Liver cancer is a common tumor, it is the 6th largest number of cases worldwide, about 626,000 cases annually. His death rate is ranked 3rd worldwide, his death rate reaching 589,000 per year. So at this time, liver cancer is a disease that is very harmful to human health. The liver has a combination of decomposition and metabolic functions. The foods we consume primarily will be broken down by the heart, and stored in the heart as well. At the time of not eating, the liver is the body that keeps the balance in our body.

Dangers of Liver Cancer

Liver cancer gives a huge injury to many patients, which causes the patient to feel the pain. The development of liver cancer tends to be hidden and has a long incubation period, but its development can be said to be fast, including malignant, and has a high risk of death.

Clinical symptoms of liver cancer, such as pain in the liver, the body becomes lean, not energetic, bloated, yellow symptoms, fever. Can also appear other symptoms, such as swelling of the liver, lumps on the upper abdomen, yellow, ascites, swelling of the lower limbs.

Liver cancer, as a type of malignant tumor can threaten human life, if not promptly treated, can accelerate death.

The Process Of Occurrence Of Cancer

1. Incoming virus invades the liver, will multiply in the liver cells, and cause infection, after the incubation period will cause inflammation of the liver, this is called "viral hepatitis." The way of spread of viral hepatitis is divided into 2. First, through food from the mouth, secondly, through blood and body fluids When performing blood transfusions, needles, and other non-sterilized medical devices can also cause liver infections.

2. Viral hepatitis is divided into hepatitis A, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and hepatitis B is the most closely related to liver cancer.

3. Chronic hepatitis due to liver inflammation and repetitive repair process, can cause liver fibrosis and gradually harden, after 20 or 30 years later, there is about 20% that will turn into liver cirrhosis, and the other 5% will turn into liver cancer every year.

4. Cirrhosis of the liver is divided into several types: ① Alcoholic cirrhosis, caused by excessive alcohol consumption; ② Cirrhosis of hepatitis, originated from viral hepatitis; ③ Cirrhosis due to fatty liver, fatty liver post-hepatitis caused by excess food intake, lack of exercise, plus liver function that has not fully recovered, very easy to cause fat accumulation in the liver. Large, long-term fatty deposits can cause swelling of the liver cells, which then break down and die. After liver fibrosis will eventually turn into liver cirrhosis.

5. According to health data shows: Liver cells can cause cancerous lesions, in which in about 85% of cases are caused by viral hepatitis, which develops into liver cirrhosis, and eventually become liver cancer; While in 15% of cases without going through liver cirrhosis, from direct hepatitis develops into liver cancer.

6. Early symptoms of liver cancer are often hidden behind hepatitis and cirrhosis, so it tends to be difficult to detect. If not undergoing timely treatment, the disease will progress to the next stage, and can threaten human health.

Minimally Invasive Treatment In liver cancer patients

New Technologies of Liver Cancer Treatment

Minim injuries, minimal bleeding, minimal complications

Cryosurgery is also called freezing or Cryotherapy, this method freezes the local part to destroy the tumor tissue, Cryosurgery will not remove excess liver tissue, so this method of treatment is suitable for patients who can not undergo surgery, minimal injuries, minimal bleeding, and minimal complications. Cryosurgery requires only a few millimeters (mm) incision on the skin, which is used to insert a catheter type device and is connected directly to the center of the tumor, using high temperatures to kill liver cancer cells. Cryosurgery therapy is indeed an effective treatment method, minimally invasive minimally invasive treatment, adapted to tumors of 5 cm or more, Cryosurgery combined with several other methods, combining Intervention treatment methods and Particle seeding, will yield more results effective.

surgical resection: recurrence of postoperative and metastasis

As a traditional therapy, surgical treatment of trauma harms greater, leaving a large scar for the body, there is a certain risk. Meanwhile, the proliferation of cancer cells can not be solved, transfer problems, postoperative metastases and relapse.

2.Particle seeding method:
Minimize complications, minimal side effects

Particle seeding method is a method that incorporates an i125 particle beam that emits γ rays at low doses around the tumor tissue under CTscan and ultrasound guidelines, which continue to work on tumor tissue, and maximally kill and destroy it. Compared with conventional external beam radiation therapy, the radiation dose of iodine particles tends to be smaller, longer duration of use, accurate, the effect on local tumors is excellent, small radiation radiation (about 2 cm), minimal damage to the surrounding normal tissue area, excellent local treatment methods. If combined with chemotherapy, the effect of treatment will be better (can kill cancer cells that have spread

radiotherapy: for major injuries

Radiotherapy kills tumor cells while also killing normal cells, causing immune system damage, greater tumor constraints, small pairs of lesions, valid subclinical metastases.

The scar is only 1-2 millimeters (mm),
killing cancer cells accurately

Intervention is a method of treatment by way of embolization, the way the embolization leaves only a small skin injury of 1-2 mm, inserting tools in the arteries that are directly related to the blood vessels supplying the tumor, then entering the drug. This way of treatment immediately drains the drug into cancer cells, will not allow blood to flow throughout the body, so the effectiveness of the drug will increase by 2-8 fold, effectively killing all cancer cells, and maximally reduce the side effects of the drug. In the meantime, embolization is useful for "killing" the blood vessels supplying the tumor, thereby causing the tumor to lack blood supply and "starvation", Intervention treatment methods have clear targets, no drug resistance, minimal side effects and other advantages.

chemotherapy: obvious side effects

Nausea, mental and physical fatigue, hair loss, palpitations, fever ...... almost every cancer patient receiving chemotherapy will have such side effects. Clinical findings, the patient's condition worsens because the cancer itself does not cause, but because it is unscientific, improper treatment of the damage caused.
