Said It’s ‘Clean’, But Why Cancer Can Appear Again?
Cancer cells have been declared clean. However, a few months or even years later, cancer cells are known to reappear. If so, what is the cause? Disclosed Prof. Dr. dr Andrijono SpOG, KFER, in the study mentioned if cancer cells still exist then the risk of growing back higher. Therefore, cancer cells will trigger carcinogens, although if judging from the evaluation of cancer cell treatment is not there. "" If the evaluation of a doctor called complete remission. But in the body may still exist (cancer cells), undetected. Because all the detection tools there is a maximum detection for example his MRI scan up to 1 cm, "" Prof Andri said on the sidelines of Ngobras Forum in Hong Kong Cafe, Central Jakarta, Tuesday (11/4/2017).
Therefore, the scan can show negative results but there is still a risk of cancer cells left behind. Prof Andri added, chemotherapy does not kill cancer cells entirely and leaves 10 percent cancer cells. Well, the remaining 10 percent can die with endurance. If the immune system is weak, it is not impossible that cancer cells reappear. That is why, often found cancer patients who have declared complete remission but 1-3 years later cancer cells reappear.Read also: Sad!
