My mother in law has been diagoned with breast cancer (stage 2b). Action cancer hospital at pachim vihar in delhi has prescribed total 16 chemotherapy to her. Her chemo cycles have been divided in to 4 high dose (each 3 weeks apart) and 12 (weekly) supposedly low dose session. Can someplese help to understand me why count of chemo is 16? I heard from many that total no of chemo given in breast cancer remain 6. I consulted oncologist, he said that this is the standard practice which is being followed now by many hospitals now, and it's best treatment as the side effects will be low as compare to case in which 6 chemotherapies were being give. Pleaese help to understand . Thanks!!
