My name is Sheila Binti Mohd Arudin.

I am 49 years old.

I live in Laguna Merbok Town, Sungai Petani, Kedah

I work as a teacher.

I'm married and have three children.

In August 2019, I was diagnosed with tongue cancer.

A medical specialist confirmed my disease and I accepted it with an open heart.

Despite being upset, I've tried to find the best medical solutions to treat my illness.

During a consulting session with my specialist, he advised me that brachytherapy was my best option.

It was the first time I had ever heard about brachytherapy.

My doctor further explained that brachytherapy is a treatment that kills cancer cells by placing a small radiation source in a tumor.

Radiation released in small doses to the tumor will kill the cancer cell and it is safe for the organs around the tumor.

The side effects of this treatment are also minimal compared to other treatments.

So, I believe brachytherapy is a very efficient and perfect treatment option for me.

Besides, I have done some research on brachytherapy of how the treatment works, its side effects, and its effectiveness.

After completion of treatment, it took around 1.5 years to completely recover.

I am now so glad and excited.

Brachytherapy really helped improve my quality of life after the cancer diagnosis.

The minimal side effects and the effectiveness of this cancer treatment gave me confidence and motivation to keep going and live life as usual.

I highly recommend brachytherapy as a treatment method to patients in a similar situation as I am.

Because there are more advantages from brachytherapy than those of other treatment options.

I hope to continue living as usual with good health and optimal quality of life.

Brachytherapy for tongue cancer is the best.

With excellent efficacy and improved quality of life after the treatment was done.
