The departure of artist Han Van Tinh for lung cancer; In addition, the health information of singer Minh Thuan also turned bad because of lung cancer, causing public opinion to be afraid of this disease.
However, according to doctors, lung cancer can still be cured and it is clear that there are many lung cancer patients, even the disease has spread throughout the body has been cured and live well. These are obviously medical exploits.
Prof. Dr. Mai Trong Khoa, Vice Director of Bach Mai Hospital, Director of the Center for Nuclear Medicine and Oncology of BV said: "At the Center, there are many cancer patients with advanced stages that have been cured. New techniques for cancer treatment, a patient and a doctor, have survived five years of cancer death, although lung cancer has spread throughout the body "from head to toe" . And as you know, cancer patients who survived 5 years of disease detection can be considered completely cured.
Cancer patients who survived 5 years of disease detection can be considered completely cured.
"The doctor discovered lung cancer late in the period more than 5 years. The patient had no pain in addition to coughing lasting 3-4 weeks, taking medicine forever. Not until he took a PET scan. / CT scans the whole body to detect stage 4B lung cancer, which is very late, the disease has spread to the spinal cord, bone marrow and then the tumor spreads to the brain, pushing the eyeball forward , retinal detachment " - GS. Faculty of Information.
Also according to GS. Faculty, in cancer, is divided into stages 1, 2, 3, 4A and 4B. Previously, with such stage 4B metastatic cancer patients, usually only applied symptomatic treatments, palliative care, physical enhancement . However, this patient's case, due to the absolute sense of adherence to the treatment regimen along with the application of the most advanced techniques such as PET / CT scans both for diagnosis and for simulating radiation planning and then gamma knife surgery spin, followed by the maintenance of chemicals, target medicines . patients have won the disease, the entire tumor is no longer available. This doctor is now healthy, goes to work normally, is healthy enough to do charity everywhere .
Talking about cancer, GS. Khoa said that Vietnam is one of the countries with the highest incidence of cancer in the world. Every year, the number of newly infected people keeps increasing and a very large proportion of them die. According to Globocan (2012), in 2012 alone, there were 125,000 new cases of cancer and 94,700 people died of this disease. However, there are very few cancer patients in Vietnam who are diagnosed early and treated early, most in the late stages, metastases and complications. Therefore, the treatment is difficult, the cost of treatment increases, but the effectiveness of treatment is low, the relapse rate and death rate are high compared to other countries in the region and the world.
The cancer treatment often has to coordinate many methods such as surgery, chemicals, radiotherapy, target treatment . In which more than 50% of cancer patients in our country have indicated the use of radiation ionization for diagnosis and specifically for treatment with external radiotherapy, internal radiotherapy, radiotherapy, close-to-radiotherapy, radioactive seed implant, radiotherapy in selective .
