This is a male patient having Ca lung with multiple metastasis in brain. I told his relalatives that there is no point in doing any surgery with these multiple metastasis and it is better to take him home and just give pain killers and some other symptomatic treatment. Would you like to do something like aspiration of fluid from cystic lesions , X-knifeor cyberknife tretment to this patient?See More
