Greetings to know my docs, agus from Bali yesterday was exhausted in the biophysic period in the nasopharynx. The doctor said there was an Epstein Barr Virus, but the tumor he removed was not yet malignant. Ask for input so that you can avoid being insane? Thanks
Hello, Mr. Agus. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com.
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (KNF) is a malignant tumor of the nasopharyngeal epithelium. This cancer is associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection and is influenced by genetic and environmental factors (for example, consumption of preserved foods, salted fish). The diagnosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma needs to be done through a series of anamnesis, physical examination, and supporting examinations by a doctor. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that patients consult the results of supporting examinations that have been carried out with a doctor or ENT specialist who examines the patient so that an appropriate evaluation can be made and appropriate treatment is given.
In general, the main therapy for NPC is radiotherapy. The doctor may plan radiotherapy if the patient has indeed been diagnosed with this disease. If there are indications, can also be given chemotherapy together, before, or after radiotherapy. Surgery is usually done if the NPC does not show a response to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.
As a suggestion at home, it is advisable to avoid consuming preserved foods, stop smoking, not drinking alcohol, and eat balanced nutritious food regularly.
