    And if there is not bothbandc option, it will be Radiotherapy because gene therapy is still in experimental stage?

    Im not an expert, but I would say e) a, b and c. My grandmother is still fighting the afteraffects of mouth cancer, and she still recieves antibiotics. A LOT actually. I also know gene therapy can be done, and obviously radiotherapy.

    Antibiotic would be a good answer, because cancer and the use of chemicals and or radiotherapy will normally knock out the inmune system.....

    does radiotherapy harm the immune system? if so, then one may be vulnerable to infection...i could see them administering antibiotics too...possibly

    actually it DEPENDS, on what type of cancer the patient has, it is very different a patient with lung cancer, that a patient with epidermoid cancer, so the answers would be, Radiotherapy, Gene Therapy, and Quimo... antibiotics are used in some cases

    first thing first, I was wrong: radiotherapy can knockout the inmune system but only in high doses.... And yes, antibiotics won't have an effect on cancer, but considering the fact that chemotherapy will knock out inmune system. Add a weak body to the equation due to other medications and the cancer itself, i don't see antibiotics as something trivial..... But for the sake of the question, NO ANTIBIOTICS
