As time passed, the lumps grew bigger and he gradually felt painful and showed the symptoms of dizziness. Thus, he went to Malaysia for a further check up with the company of his wife. However, the result showed that the lumps were cancerous and he needed to take a biopsy for a confirmed diagnosis but he refused to take it.

TONY GUNAWAN and doctors and nurses
He took a detailed check-up soon and the result showed that there was lymphoma, 2x3cm. Though his condition was severe, the detailed therapeutic regimen, which was made by our multidisciplinary team (MDT), and the advanced technologies here drove their fear and worry away. On January 12th, TONY GUNAWAN underwent the first session of interventional therapy. Before taking that, he was extremely nervous because he did not know how long would the interventional therapy take and how the effect would be. After that, he is never afraid of it because it only takes a while and just feels a little pain when being injected the drugs now. So far, he has undergone four sessions of interventional therapy. After the second session of interventional therapy, his tumor has shrunk to 2x1 cm. During the treatment, his condition turns good. He does not feel dizzy and painful any more. His appetite and sleeping also become better. Interventional therapy has not caused any side effects, no vomiting, no nausea, no hair loss. His mental status is good, too.
