I hate to burst your bubble, but what you are likely smelling is the steriods that most cancer patients are on. Steriods, after long term use, gives the body a sick sweet smelling pungent odor. I know, because I have been on steriods long term for my MS and this sweet smelling odor is very present, and noticed by other people. Most cancer patients are on heavy doses of steriods when under going chemotherapy and radiation, and also after treatments.
"Steroids are chemicals that are naturally produced in the body to help control how it works. They are made by the adrenal glands above the kidney and by the reproductive organs. Steroids can also be made as a drug. There are many different types of steroids and they all have different effects on the body. Some types of steroids help destroy some types of cancer cells and can make chemotherapy more effective. "
