Dr T.S. Rao, senior oncologist at Indo-American Cancer Centre, says, “We have an integrated system for the treatment of cancer. Hence we use a mix of modern medicine and therapeutic methods to treat cancer. But patients come with very bad stage of cancer and after a few years we find that they have sought alternative treatment and have become completely cancer-free. What are these treatments and how they have worked on the human body is important to understand.”
