LOW CHEW LONG, 48 years old, comes from Malaysia. In March, 2016, he was diagnosed with lymphoma in local hospital. Three months later, he traveled long distance to China and underwent treatment in MCHG. Now his tumor has disappeared and he’s got good condition.

In Oct. 2015, LOW CHEW LONG was detected a peanut-size lump in his left armpit. He didn’t feel any pain, so it’s been neglected. In October, the lump enlarged to egg-like size and it also occurred in clavicles. Being worried about his own condition, he took a biopsy in local hospital and was diagnosed as lymphoma stage IV. The doctor offered the suggestion that he should take chemotherapy but he refused due to the side effects, killing both normal cells and cancer ones. Then he resorted to Chinese medicine therapy, 4 months later, his condition became worse and multiple enlarged lymph nodes occurred in his both armpits and neck.

Before the treatment

Immersed in despair, he got to know MCHG on newspaper by chance and attended the free symposium in Kuala Lumpur, which provided free consultation about cancer. After discussion with doctor and being informed of the minimally invasive treatment in MCHG, he didn’t hesitate to book his ticket to China.

In MCHG, LOW CHEW LONG was diagnosed with hodgkin's lymphoma multiple violations of lymph nodes. Therefore, The Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) conducted an intensive discussion over his condition and finally decided to apply interventional therapy to him.

According to LOW CHEW LONG, he felt slight pain during the treatment and a flow of heat passed through the body. “As I trusted doctors and treatment here, so I was free from fear.”

After the treatment, he yielded good efficacy and the tumor shrunk without suffering any side effect. Comparing his previous condition with body weakness, now he is so energetic that he always walks around the hospital. His attending doctor, Pang Anneng said, as long as he takes regular recheck, he will achieve better efficacy and back to normal soon.

LOW CHEW LONG and medical staff

He was surprised that he got such good efficacy in a short period after the treatment. “I have a friend who also suffered cancer and took treatment in Malaysia. Due to the side effects of therapy, he became weak and now he even walks with a stick, while I live like a normal person. I sincerely feel sorry for him.”

With a naturally cheerful and optimistic personality, he always encourage other patients, “Don’t be afraid and be strong, positive attitudes can help you yield better efficacy.” Although suffered from disease, he still shows great passion for life. He is so talkative that he gets acquainted with patients and medical staff in the hospital. They all speak highly of him.

He also joked that, “he disease didn’t take advantage of me, I even gained 2 kg during my stay in the hospital.”

Since the foundation, MCHG has achieved great improvement in minimally invasive treatment and has benefited numerous cancer patients. In this course of serving more patients, we still have long way to go.

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
