The Possibility Of Someone Experiencing 2 Types Of Cancer Simultaneously?
Can a person get 2 types of cancer at the same time? For example, he was leukemia sufferer first and then the cancer spread and he was convicted of having brain cancer as well. Can it happen? Thank you

Cancer cells can generally spread to other organs through the blood, lymph nodes, or to normal tissue around the area that has cancer. Cancer cells that are active in an organ of a certain stage have the ability to spread to other organs. Therefore, it is not uncommon for someone suffering from a cancer disorder to also find other disorders in several organs of his body. This is called metastasis / spread. Cancer metastases are often found in areas of the bones, brain, liver, digestive organs etc. Various symptoms can be found according to the location of metastases found.
Related to your question, it is very possible to happen. If the spread of cancer cells is found to other organs, then the disorder is called metastatic cancer. The stage of the cancer must be evaluated to determine the degree of severity and management accordingly. Often if cancer cells have been found that have spread to other organs it will be difficult to control and manage. Various therapeutic options include chemotherapy with drugs, radiation therapy, nuclear therapy, and surgery.
To prevent this, a healthy lifestyle is very important to do, including:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods
Maintain body weight
Consumption of vitamins and minerals
Increase the consumption of water
Consumption of vegetables and fruit
Avoid foods that contain lots of fat
Avoid cigarettes and alcohol consumption
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
