The cancer in the said patient seems to be in a very advanced stage. chemotherapy will not be of significant help. radiotherapy too may not be helpful. The patient now has the option of palliative care.

When extensive secondaries are formed then permanent cure becomes a bit tuff, but i have seen cases who with their will power and by taking immuno boosters enjoyed good life.Amongst herbal remedies Abhrak bhasam sahastra puti , amrita sat , wheat gram juice,show good results. Blood purifiers and lymphatic draining herbs are under observation for their efficacy
