Radiation Oncologist

Answers by Dr. Trinanjan Basu

After experiencing a Prostate removal operation on 10th July I was offered Radiotherapy to eradicate the malignancy. Could you tell me the most typical adverse effects of this therapy? My doctor is not explaining things clearly.

Answered on 10th May '22

There are many factors which need to be discussed in detail like type of surgery done, stage, hormone given or not and other factors. Then there will be discussion about radiotherapy. Mostly in IGRT/VMAT the side effect profile remains very low. 

Hello Sir, my mother was diagnosed with salivary gland cancer (parotid gland cancer) on 28th. It is in an advanced stage. She's 69, and on blood thinners. She is really scared and asked me to get a second opinion. Kindly refer someone who can help us through this condition.

We need to check few more details. Whether surgery done or not? Generally, surgery remains 1st step and on safe hands the age mentioned is really no an adverse factor.
