KHO HADI KARNO, a lung cancer patient, comes from Indonesia. In August 2015, he always felt fatigued and had worse memory gradually, easy to forget the recent events. And then, accompanied by his family, KHO HADI KARNO took check-up that showed he got lung cancer with mediastinum, lymph node and brain metastasis. The doctor in Indonesia asserted that if he did not take surgery immediately, he would only have 2-month survival time. This bad news gave them a sense of doom and gloom, but they were not knocked down and continued to find better treatment instead of surgery.

He said that he received heartfelt care from doctors and nurses in Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou, who constantly concerned about his condition changes, and he proceeded with confidence due to the company of his wife and son.

*Surgery, in addition to the appropriate chemotherapy and radiotherapy, are effective in treating early cancer, but certain patients in late stage of cancer may not be tolerate surgery well as they can be relatively weak. A combination of carefully planned minimally invasive therapy, chemotherapy or radiotherapy can effectively reduce the side effects and discomfort of treatment and may help patient get better efficacy.
