Dr Kiattisa Sommat, Consultant, National Cancer Centre Singapore shares about the three main methods to treat cancer.
First being surgery. Surgery has always been the go-to method to remove tumours. With better technology in this field, patients can expect a faster recovery process. In cases where patients are not suitable to undergo surgery, we turn to other treatment methods.
Radiotherapy is one of the other treatment method, it is most commonly used to treat Nasopharyngeal cancer.
Last but not least, there is chemotherapy. It uses anti-cancer drugs, given to patients via infusion into a vein.
