Answer from Dr hanan..

Few days ago i've asked a question to Dr Hannan about my dear friend Maria who suffering from brain cancer and i got the reply. Sedih sebenarnya untuk mengetahui the fact that we going to lose her soon. Sebelum ni i've told my friends something similar to what Dr. hannan wrote in his blog, but all of them marah me. So this is what the DOCTOR explained to me...


dear julia

i felt sorry for ur friend

to be diagnosed with brain cancer ,

some said - it would be the end of the world

some said " my life is over "

off all cancer , brain cancer would be considered as the most fearful

as it could easily effect our mind , emotion , feeling , rational thinking...

all those stuff that u need to get thru ur life in order



u mentioned that ur friend is already at the stage ll

it's still an early stage

but we both not sure about the severity of her condition right

usually at stage ll

a patient could still have an active daily life

but the symptom occurs quite oftenly

in her case , symptoms could be severe headache and mood swing



in many case , at stage ll of cancer,

combination of surgery and chemotheraphy do produced a good result

nevertheless , these two methods also come with bad side effect

in her case ,

if surgical to be done , maybe a part of the brain need to be removed

and during chemotheraphy ...

other healthy brain cells will be dead as well resulting for the toxic effect of the chemo drugs

imagine if u only have half of ur brain

that's is one of the possibilities that could happen to her

we could treat the cancer ,

but her brain would be effected as well...

she could fight until the end... but it would be a difficult battle to win...

cancer always relapsed even if we defeated them once ....
