How can I improve my prognosis?

Even though you cannot change the factors that influence the prognosis like the patient’s gender or age, you can try to improve your prognosis. Several patients have managed to do this with the help of multimodal therapy and other complementary medicines. Other ways to improve your long-term survival chances are the following:

  • early detection of the disease
  • entering a clinical trial (you have access to experimental treatment, which is not available if you are not part of the clinical trial)
  • smoking cessation
  • nutrition improvement (an oncology dietitian can give you advice about how to strengthen your body)

We wanted a resource where people who are looking for better help can find it, because one of the issues that I have found is that the diagnosis takes a little bit, some people don’t know if they are diagnosed or not. This is something that it is important enough, that is why I wanted to put the information together.
