Can Gel Treat Cancer?

Mr Young turned to Medix after discovering that the treatment he was prescribed wasn't available locally. He quickly learned that the treatment wasn't suitable for his condition at all

When receiving medical care abroad, especially in developing countries, one can't always be sure of what he or she is going to get. In such cases, a global perspective and in depth understanding of treatment alternatives are needed in order to work around local constraints. 
 
This added value is what Medix provided to Mr Young, a 36 year old gentleman, when he was diagnosed with a malignant growth.
 
 Over a year's time, Mr Young became aware of a firm lump on his chest. A battery of tests and assessments yielded a diagnosis of Cutaneous T-cell Lymphoma (CTCL). All his imaging and pathology were reviewed by a local oncologist, who prescribed two drugs that are applied as a cream to the lesion. When Mr Young tried to purchase the drugs, he discovered that Bexarotene, one of the drugs, is not available at all. 
 
Unsure of how he should proceed, Mr Young contacted Medix for guidance. The purpose of taking up service was to understand which treatment alternatives were available locally while at the same time ensuring that the diagnosis received was in fact correct. 
 
Medix started off by taking a detailed intake and gathering all available test results and biopsy samples. These results were sent to an oncologist and a leading pathology centre for review and input regarding the most suitable treatment.
 
Medix oncologist quickly provided his recommendations stating that he was concerned with the treatment plan outlined for Mr Young. He emphasised that the preferred treatment for a single lesion would be surgical removal after ensuring that no other lesions exist. Excision of the lesion is safer, and would provide more substance to observe under pathology. In order to prevent recurrence, radiotherapy treatment was also recommended post-surgery. 
 
All of these recommendations were related to Mr Young who was thrilled with the thorough review and concrete treatment plan. As such, Medix referred Mr Young to a specialist most suited for the procedure who successfully performed the excision with clean margins, indicating that no malignant cells were left behind. 
 
Medix went on to consult and coordinate radiation therapy tailored to Mr Young's condition. Since treatment Mr Young feels well and is extremely happy to have had support that put him on the direct path to recovery.
