In this new episode of “Know It To Beat It” by HCG – the Specialist in Cancer Care, Dr Vishal Rao talks about those statistical outliers, who despite being diagnosed with advanced-stage cancers manage to win over the disease and lead a normal life. In this episode, he opens his diary of untold inspiring stories to share that one particular story of a patient, who not only overcame a very aggressive stage 4 mouth cancer but also showed him the new way to look at tumours. Dr Vishal mentions how cancer care is slowly moving towards precision medicine. He also emphasizes the importance of approaches such as metronomic chemotherapy and immunotherapy, which work by weakening cancer and strengthening the immune system. He signs off with a beautiful, yet powerful take-home message – Cancers, even in their advanced stages, are conquerable, provided the approach is right.
