Because of Minimally Invasive Therapy, I Fight against Breast Cancer with Optimism

Rejecting chemotherapy while facing breast cancer recurrence

KANTAT ERKULWARAWAT, 50 years old, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010. She underwent surgery resection and systemic chemotherapy in local hospital. In 2015, she felt pain in leg while doing yoga and got checked in hospital. It turned out that breast cancer recurred and even spread to lung and liver. Back then, doctors suggested her take chemotherapy but she refused with replying, “ I had taken chemotherapy before, while breast cancer came back to me again. I believe there’ re more advanced therapies for breast cancer. I know well how severe side effects of chemotherapy are. ” So she kept searching for more advanced breast cancer treatment.

In June, 2018, with the company of her families and friends, KANTAT arrived at MCHG. Through body checkup, the MDT (Multidisciplinary Team) measured a treatment plan combining interventional therapy and cryotherapy. “ I had chemotherapy before and was tortured by it side effects such as hair loss, vomiting and weakness. However, during the interventional therapy, I didn’t suffer any pain and the duration of operation didn’t last long, most importantly, few side effects were caused. All things are same as what I read on the website. Few days later, my condition backed to normal.” KANTAT commented on the sharp contrast between interventional therapy and systemic chemotherapy. After combined treatment of interventional therapy and cryotherapy, her tumor greatly shrank and her condition is well under control.

Painting helps relieve my pressure of treatment and forget the pain

As a producer of TV station, KANTAT faces great pressure from work. Since the recurrence of breast cancer, she has begun to reduce workload and give herself more time to relax. Back then, she restarted to painting, which was her childhood interest. In her mind, painting helps her relax and forget the pain, facing cancer with positive attitude. During her hospitalization, KANTAT insisted on drawing and accomplished dozen of paintings, including portraits of doctors and nurses, beautiful scenery of Guangzhou, pets and beautiful things she observed. All her works indicate her desire for a better life and vision for a better future. In order to encourage her and also other cancer patients to fight against cancer with optimism, the medical staff of MCHG decided to hold an exhibition of her painting.

How We Treat Cancer?

Interventional Therapy

Interventional Therapy is a new substitute of traditional chemotherapy, which means that a physician introduces instruments such as needles or catheters (long, thin tubes) into the body through tiny(1-2 mm) incisions in the skin. The instruments are then guided by an imaging technique called fluoroscopy to the cancer tumor. In this way, the physician can deliver cancer medicine directly to the tumor.more info

Cryotherapy Therapy

Cryotherapy Therapy, also known as “Argon-Helium Knife Cryotherapy”, is a new substitute of traditional physical therapy. Practically speaking it is “extreme cold + extreme heat” cancer treatment. Generally, a minimum of 10-15 minutes is required to achieve an extreme analgesic (pain relieving) effect while lowering the temperature to the injured area, thus reducing the metabolic rate and swelling associated with tissue injury.more info

Particle Knife

Particle Knife is a new substitute of traditional radiation therapy. With the help of computer Treatment Planning System (TPS), radioactive particles will be implanted into tumors. The particles which release γ-rays can continuously kill tumor and cause destruction targeting tumor cells. With time, the radiation amount would accumulate to be large enough to destroy the DNA double strands of tumor cells.more info
