Treatment Of Brain Cancer Without Surgery Or Chemotherapy?
I have a boyfriend and I have been dating for 5 years now he is convicted of having stage 2 brain cancer can he recover without surgery or chemo? The problem was that he was also convicted of leukemia but over time for some reason when the control of the leukemia tuberculosis was declared to be gone, what is his current illness like that? Thank you
Leukemia is a type of blood cancer that attacks white blood cells. There are several types of leukemia which are classified based on acute or chronic disease, also based on the type of cell being attacked. This will later be related to the chances of recovery. In the mild type of leukemia, and young sufferers, as well as intensive treatment, this disease can be cured. The possibility of recurrence can also occur, and this is different in percentage for each type of leukemia.
Leukemia and brain cancer can be related.
First, leukemia and chemotherapy treatment processes and imaging such as CT scans can increase the risk for cancer. Cancers that can arise after leukima are: thyroid cancer, brain cancer and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Not all leukemia sufferers will get this cancer, it's just that the risk of experiencing the three types of cancer above will be higher. Please read the following journal: leukemia cancer risk
Second, according to several journals, found the causes of leukemia cancer and brain cancer have similarities in molecular terms. This will still require further research to be known. Please read through the following journals: Brain cancer and leukemia.
Cure of brain cancer experienced by your girlfriend will depend on the type and stage of the cancer. It is recommended that you consult directly with the family and the patient's doctor, to know more clearly about this condition and the prognosis of the disease.
Thus, hopefully can help you.
