Studies that have been conducted and mentioned below, have been done on healthy people, pilots, flight staff. In our experience with cancer patients who do fly, the culmination of the effects mentioned below in a body that has cancer and/or cells that already have a defect or mutations, the nature of the pressure on the body, results in the cancer spreading aggressively, even if not immediately felt physically, it normally becomes noticeable after 6 weeks. Knowing the dangers of thus flying, we strongly advise against air travel whilst fighting cancer. It is not worth the risk.
