I received one email from my friend. Her mother is diagnosed with Breast cancer. Surgery is over and they recommend Chemo followed by radiation. Now the patient is fine, and there is no findings of metastasis. Her family members are little worried about after effects of chemo and radiotherapy. May be due to the side effects they observed in some cases, especially in advanced cases. As per the information, there was unilateral lesion which was diagnosed early, and removed surgically.  Please give your valuable opinion.

The same knowlege i was sharing with dr rafeeque at normal patients level so that he can share this to patient
All information provided by him was indicating may metastasize or may h2n gene + or may follicular so i was assuring to him to go by doctors opinion who is carring all process ( like onchologist )
My aim was to ensure him and not to tell him all oncology ( as he is doc too he might be knowing all or he might collect it easily)

Thanks for the comments.
