Its been a year and a half approximately since my Dad’s detection of cancer , and surgery. Right from that time its been kind of rollercoaster in life . Even though he wasnt under Chemotherapy , it been kind of dilemma when he goes for post surgery Check ups.
Cancer is such a difficult disease to live with , there is not a single day in life when you can relax after you have been detected with Cancer.
Whenever my dad goes to doctor for followup , there are many things that run in my mind . The biggest confusion lies in terms of testing , which test to get it done.
If a doctor prescribes Ultra sound , people tell why CT scan is not been done , if CT scan is done i get advice to get PET Scan done , I also hear advice to get other parts of the body tested for new cells/tumour growth.
That brings to my mind a question Can Cancer really be tested and detected. If so does the new testing systems, which have been developed do they really improve our chances of finding the disease early?.
Whats the opinion of you people is it worth to think every day in life about the vicious circle of what to test , when to test , or is it better to follow doctors advice and live in a positive frame of mind?
Is Cancer testing really a revolution ?
Has cancer survival rate really increased ? if so why is that 90 % of people whom i know detected for cancer the doctor made the same statement “Cells have spread in the body and nothing much can be done except chemotherapy”
Why is nutritional information not given to patients with high importance?
I would love to hear all of your taught’s on the questions running in my mind.
I would venture out into the world of cancer testing and post some posts regarding cancer testing in the days to come.
