|Information Booklet on Chemotheraphy & Radiation|
|The treatment of cancer typically involves Chemotherapy and/or Radiation. Each month, hundreds of such patients
come to CPAA’s Patient Care Department with questions they are often unable to ask their doctors. Patients who are to undergo chemotherapy and radiation always feel uncertain about these treatments. Accurate and meaningful information at times like these helps reduce the anxiety of these patients.
Keeping this in mind we have put together and published booklets on Chemotherapy and Radiation, explaining in non-medical terms, the procedure the patients will have to go through along-with the side effects and how to cope with them. These booklets are currently available in English and Hindi with an aim to publish Marathi, Gujrati and Bengali versions of the same very soon. They have been made available in the various hospitals in Mumbai like Tata Memorial, L. S. Raheja, Cama, BYL Nair, Bombay Hospital, B. J. Wadia, Nanavati; homes like Ernest Borges Home, Bharat Sevashram; at our clinics at Dadar & Naigaon and our Administrative Office.
