Topic: International Patients looking for hospitals in the United States
My name is Ana. My brother was diagnosed with bile duct cancer last August. He is on chemotherapy since September, 24th. He had a MRI exam 3 weeks ago to see if the tumor has shrunk. Unfortunately, the tumor has the same size since the diagnosis (4.8 cm). The doctors are now thinking to combine radiation with chemotherapy. However, they are not sure that the new treatment will work. We live in Bogota, Colombia. We are then thinking to go to the United States to look for a better treatment. Our sister leaves in Boston. So it will be perfect if we can go to Boston. Has anyone been treated at the Mass General Hospital or at Dana Faber Cancer Institute?
