A 22-year-old male medical student has no smoking habit. 

After feeling unwell, he underwent a physical examination and was diagnosed with stage three lung cancer!

Abang Muhd Haziman Abg Ali, from Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), was shocked when he heard the news.

He said his world seemed to have collapsed, but he did not give up and looked forward to pursuing his dream of becoming a doctor after recovery.

In January this year, he posted a video on TikTok to share his experience of being diagnosed with third-stage lung cancer.

He was healthy in November last year, but he started to have a fever and chest pain in December.

A Total Surprise

Abang Muhd Haziman is only 22 years old and did not smoke, but he never thought he would develop lung cancer.

However, following a CT scan and biopsy, he was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer in early January.

I did not expect this; I am only 22, do not smoke, and feel like my life is ruined.

Abang Muhd Haziman on being told of his condition.

Abang Muhd Haziman revealed in an interview with the online media mStar that he had completed two chemotherapy courses and will continue treatment, and may also undergo surgery in the future.

He completed two cycles of chemotherapy and will start a third cycle of chemotherapy.

After the first two or three days of chemo, he was tired and had stomach pain and vomiting.

However, it was fine after that, and he could live a normal life.

Fighting Back

In an interview with mStar, Abang Muhd Haziman said he did not always stay home; he would go out to play badminton.

The doctor advised him to do more activities to reduce stress.

He said his condition is dangerous because the cancer cells are very close to the heart and in the third stage.

Hence the results of chemotherapy must be observed first.

After the third round of chemotherapy, the doctor will decide whether to perform surgery. So far, I have not had surgery because the cancer cells are too close to the heart.

Abang Muhd Haziman elaborates on his condition and the challenges faced.

Despite his grief, Abang Muhd Haziman is still looking forward to returning to school after his recovery to continue his journey as a doctor.

He was advised by the doctor to take time off, but he missed being on campus and taking classes with his friends.

Abang Muhd Haziman aspires to be a doctor, and after seeing many cancer patients, he was inspired to become a cancer specialist and help others.

He is not as excited about Hari Raya this year as in previous years, and understandably so, because he still needs chemotherapy.
