Sir, my mother has tumor in the uterus and doctors say that it is cancer. The doctor prescribed to first dry the wound in a span of 6 weeks and then if necessary, they would operate. Sir is it correct to not do surgery instead? She is 42 years old.
My mother is getting IGRT treatment for metastatic breast cancer now for 15 cycles along with chemo therapy.Some one is saying that patients who are taking radiation therapy are causes problems to children'health.so we should keep children to keep distance from the patient.Is this correct?
