The Possibility Of Recovery In Patients With Stage 2 Uterine Cancer?
excuse me doctor, I want to ask ..
Hello Rifnias, thank you for the question.
Tumors are abnormal cell growths that occur in a tissue and can be benign or malignant. Benign tumors (including cysts) are generally non-invasive (do not damage surrounding tissue), are progressively slow growing, cannot be metastatic, and are generally not fatal. Malignant tumors or so-called cancers are highly invasive, can be metastatic, grow rapidly progressively, and are often fatal. The diagnosis of cancer is done by examining physical signs and symptoms, supporting examinations in the form of lab tests, and supporting radiological examinations (X-rays, ultrasound, CT-scan, MRI, etc.). CT-scan functions to help diagnose and assistive devices during surgery (to determine the location and spread). A definitive diagnosis of whether a tumor is benign or malignant is obtained after removal and microscopic examination of tumor cell types.
Microscopic examination aims to determine the type of cancer cells and cancer stage. At the stage of cancer, determined from the extent of the spread of cancer locally (in situ) and remotely (metastasis at a distance). Generally, investigations will be carried out to look for whether there is enlarged lymph nodes (because cancer can spread through lymphatic flow from lymph nodes) and look for whether tumors are found in other locations in the body. The advice of chemotherapy depends on the type and stage of cancer. If it is feared that cancer cells have not completely disappeared and there is a risk of metastasis, doctors can recommend chemotherapy. The choice of therapy, whether chemotherapy or radiotherapy, is based on the type of cancer cell. Recovery and life expectancy depend on the stage, type of cancer cells, response to therapy, and the presence of concomitant diseases (such as diabetes).
You should consult with a treating doctor. The doctor will provide information about the best types of cancer cells and therapies. Please remember that in some cases chemotherapy or radiotherapy must be done several times because cancer cells have a tendency to relapse. Make sure your mother receives the best nutrition, accompany while undergoing therapy because cancer therapy has fairly severe side effects, and always encourage. Hopefully this answer can help you a little. Regards.
