Likelihood of Colon Cancer Spreading During Chemotherapy Every cancer is different. Each cancer patient receives a chemotherapy treatment that is personalized. Dr. Madappa Kundranda says he looks at a couple factors to determine whether a treatment is working or not. The first is the degree to which a patient tolerates chemotherapy. The second is a patient's response to the therapy. This is measured by how a patient is doing and by tumor markers. Dr. Madappa Kundranda obtained his medical degree from Bangalore University in India, before earning a PhD in cancer biology from Meharry Medical College in Nashville. Dr. Kundranda next completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Fairview Hospital, a Cleveland Clinic Hospital. He then finished a hematology/oncology fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, AZ. He is currently a medical oncologist with Western Regional Medical Center.
