Doctor, I have triple negative cancer. I have undergone chemotherapy but I still feel the pain in my breast. Why is this so? Is it because the cancer is still there?
I have grade 3 breast cancer, and have been treated with chemotherapy. Can the cancer I currently have spread out to my lungs? I had a history of lung tuberculosis.
Doctor, my father was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer. What does the “small cell” mean?
My mother had chemotherapy for her breast cancer, but now her stomach is swollen. Is this normal for a cancer patient who has had chemotherapy?
Doc, is chemotherapy still necessary for a patient who had her breast removed in surgery?
Hello doctor, I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. In 2018, I had a surgery. I have also had chemotherapy 4 times and taken tamoxifen. How do I know if my cancer still exists or is gone?
I have ovarian cancer. I have had my ovary removed. Now I am routinely checking every 3 months via USG and internal checks. My doctor said the cancer is gone. But, I am still worried that the cancer will recur. Is there any other examination I should do, Doc?
Doctor, my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 55 years old. Does it mean I am at risk?
5 years ago I had a surgery for a lump on my left breast. It turns out it was benign. But this past year I have been feeling pain in my right breast, and sometimes I also have cramps on my chest and my back. I had a USG examination, but the doctor said there was no problem. What should I do? The pain persists. Please give me some advice.
