Solution for having "Cancer NPC Stage 4b" and "Heart Blockage 90%"

Posted , 2 users are following.

Based on the latest report we had gotten on 3th Feb, my brother is currently having Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Stage 4B + LAD 80 & 90% blockage and heart function 36%.

The cardiologist proposed to do high risk PCI before any cancer therapy. Whereas the Oncologist proposed starts doing Radiation first, instead of doing Chemo radiation later after the high risk PCI.

Anyone had ever heard of this kind of cases or any advice on what is the best solution?

    I'm sorry to hear about your brother's situation. It's important to know that every person's condition is unique and the best course of action can vary based on individual circumstances.

    In such complex medical cases, it's always recommended to get a second opinion from another specialist, if possible. It's also important to consider all available options and weigh the benefits and risks of each, so that your brother can make an informed decision.

    It's important to remember that the goal of the treatment is to provide the best possible outcome for your brother, so it's crucial to work closely with a team of healthcare professionals who have the expertise and experience to guide you through the process.

    It's also essential to consider the impact of the treatment on your brother's quality of life, as well as their personal preferences and values. This can help your brother and your family make the most informed and empowering decision possible.
