So this person I know, it all started with a growth in the body which they doubted for a tumor. The first thing they did was go to the best cancer hospital in Hyderabad to find out what it is. After initial diagnosis doc prescribed some tests and scan. Once he got the test results & scan, we were eagerly waiting to hear from the doctor and this is one of the difficult parts. There comes the doctor and he says to see an Oncology specialist.

After fixing the appointment with the best oncologist in Hyderabad, he enters the doctor’s room and starts sweating instantly even before the doctor could do anything. He says, the tissue looks cancerous and it is pretty early and so it can be cured. He prescribed some more tests in order to get more details which are required to plan the treatment. This is called staging or identifying how much cancer has spread.
