According to statistics from the World Health Organization, 1487 patients were newly diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer in Malaysia in 2014 and 540 patients died because of it. The mortality of nasopharyngeal cancer ranks the fourth among all cancer deaths. Early detection and appropriate treatment are the important factors to improve nasopharyngeal cancer patients’ survival rate.
Oncologist from St. Stamford Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou reminds that one should take appropriate cancer treatment once being diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer, because the 5-year survival rate of early stage nasopharyngeal cancer is higher than 90%, while the 5-year survival rate of middle and advanced stage nasopharyngeal cancer is below 50%.

• Improve the Survival Rate of Nasopharyngeal Cancer with Cutting-edge Minimally Invasive Therapy
Minimally Invasive Therapy: 2-3mm incision, few side effects, little pain
Interventional therapy: with a 1-2 millimeter incision, anti-cancer drugs are directly given to the tumor, causing fewer side effects and killing cancer cells more accurately. The drug concentration is 2-8 times higher than systemic chemotherapy.
Particle Implantation: These implanted particles will keep emitting y-ray within the tumor, targeting to the cancer cells accurately; the radiation of seeds to tumor last for 180 days, high accuracy, millimeter minimally invasive; few toxic side effects and complications.
Combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Western Medicine: Combining with advantages of traditional Chinese medicine and western medicine, tumor cells will be directly wiped out and killed it accurately and powerfully. It also maximally reduces patient’s physical hurt due to treatment.
