All so many patients cancer patients forget to breathe and they can develop pneumonia and all are not always called by their doctors. So simple chest X ray can find pneumonia that can be helped by antibiotics, but also malnutrition. Patients decide they just don’t want to eat because the drugs are making them not want to eat they get on the internet, misguided Internet, and they become malnutrition which causes cachectic and another thing is just plain old depression and failure to thrive.
