Nguyen Van Chuyen and his family contacted the Hanoi office of St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. With all his medical reports, he consulted cancer expert Dr. Wang Zenghai through remote consultation. Initially, the doctor measured a treatment plan combining interventional therapy and cryotherapy based on his condition.

In Aug. 25th, 2018, Nguyen Van Chuyen arrived at St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou. Upon the admission, Dr. Wang Zenghai, as his in-charge doctor, arranged a serious of checkups including CT scans, biopsy and EGFR mutation testing. The result indicated his case-stage IIIA lung cancer. There was a tumor measuring 3.8×3.3×4.6cm in his left lower lobe with multiple metastases to the mediastinum. The value of tumor marker CEA increased to 12.49ng/ml.

After the treatment, the lung tumor has necrotized by 90%

The MDT(Multidisciplinary Team) conducted a discussion on his case and came up with a comprehensive treatment plan including interventional therapy and natural therapy. Nguyen Van Chuyen underwent two sessions of interventional therapy, which is a kind of highly targeted minimally invasive therapy. During the procedure, microcatheter is implanted into the feeding artery of the tumor, through which high-concentration anticancer drugs are injected directly to kill the tumor.

Recalling the first session of interventional therapy, Nguyen Van Chuyen said, “during the whole process of interventional therapy, I didn’t feel pain. With no surgery or side effect, I could get off bed one day after. “On the third admission, the result of CT scans indicated the metastasis in mediastinum has disappeared, additionally, the tumor in left lung measuring 3.8×3.3×4.6cm has necrotized by 90%. The value of tumor marker CEA has decreased to 1.39." Seeing the result, Nguyen Van Chuyen and his family expressed heartfelt gratitude to St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou for offering advanced treatment and professional medical team.

In early March, 2019, Nguyen Van Chuyen came for his fourth session of treatment. The doctor adopted a treatment plan combining interventional therapy and natural therapy to strengthen the efficacy and enhance immunity.

“It is just like home taking treatment here. There’re a lot of cancer patients from Vietnam and we have much in common. Usually, we chat at evening to relax. Every patient is equally treated and considerately taken care of. During my stay, I felt comfortable thanks to the advanced treatment. I feel content and grateful for the result. Meanwhile, I wish all cancer patients can get access to timely treatment. ” said Nguyen Van Chuyen during the interview.

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
