Oral cancer medications with complex regimens are now a part of cancer treatment. Patients have to manage these along with the management of medications for their other chronic illnesses. This results in medication burden as patients assume the self-management.This paper describes the treatment burdens that patients (...) endured in a randomized, clinical trial examining adherence for patients on oral cancer medications. There were four categories of oral agents reported. Most of the diagnoses of the patients were solid tumors with breast, colorectal, renal, and gastrointestinal.Patients had 1-4 pills/day for oral cancer medications as well as a number for comorbidity conditions (>3), for which they also took medications (10-11). In addition, patients had 3.7-5.9 symptoms and side effects. Patients on all categories

A Comparative Study of Hypofractionated and Conventional Radiotherapy in Postmastectomy Breast Cancer Patients. The aim of this study was to compare toxicity and locoregional control of short duration hypofractionated (HF) radiotherapy (RT) with conventional RT in breast cancer patients.A total of 100 postmastectomy breast cancer patients were randomized for adjuvant RT in control group (comprising fifty patients who received the standard conventional dose of 50 Gy in 25 fractions with 2 Gy per (...) HF RT was found to be well tolerated with mild-to-moderate side effects that neither reached statistical significance nor warranted any treatment interruption/hospitalization.HF postmastectomy RT is comparable to conventional RT without evidence of higher adverse effects or inferior locoregional tumor control and has an added advantage of increased compliance because of short duration; hence, it can help in accommodating more breast cancer patients in a calendar year, ultimately resulting

Hand-held Fan Airflow Stimulation Relieves Dyspnea in Lung Cancer Patients. The main symptom of lung cancer is dyspnea which can lead to depression, anxiety, limited independent activities, and decreased quality of life.

Diaphragmatic breathing technique was used in control arm.Wilcoxon test result showed that airflow stimulation significantly influenced dyspnea scale (P = 0.003) and respiratory rate (RR) (P = 0.008). Combination of airflow stimulation and diaphragmatic breathing can lower both dyspnea scale and RR significantly (P < 0.0001).This combination can be applied on nonhypoxemic dyspneic lung cancer patients.
