Re: Salami

From what I understand about modern health science, the two basic variables are genetics v. environment. Environment is an all-encompassing term for the macro environs, inputs such as water and air pollution, radiation, etc., and micro environs, inputs such as diet (with sub category of microbiome)...

Re: Salami

Maybe there are no specific studies on reoccurrence, but is quite likely that reoccurrence follows the same rules as primary cancer, and then it is reccommended to avoid meat and especially processed meat. Maybe once you have had cancer your odds are more dependent on other factors, but still it is...

Re: Salami

The WHO adviced to reduce the quantity of processed meat in the diet for everybody. Each of us is responsible for a little part of our health through diet and life style, but that’s not so much. If you want to help him make a lot of good and healthy food to balance for the salami. I would be rather ...

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

I am eating beans but not a lot, only on portion :D anyway I think it is a very good thing if you get rid of mucus and other stuff that accumulated over several months in your colon. I read that a water enema a week was advised to get the colon used to adsorbe water again before reversal.

Re: CT scan report and PARA-AORTIC Lymph Nodes!

Thanks for replying, Claudia. I’m thinking there’s only one reason they are enlarged...cancer! So this feels like a death sentence, as the report mentions MULTIPLE prominent nodes. Basically, the cancer is now traveling all over his body, right? It might sound like it, but now there are better chan...

Re: CT scan report and PARA-AORTIC Lymph Nodes!

Hi! Sorry for this new diagnosis. I think M refers to long distance metastasis like lungs or liver. Prominent means that they are enlarged, but they need a histologic test to see if they are cancerous.

Re: Rectal cancer (Stage 3A) diagnosed late June 2017

CT scan results are back and everything looks quite good. I looked at my exercise chart vs my CEA chart and there may be a correlation. I need to superimpose the charts to get a better view as one is monthly and the other varies between 3 and 4 weeks. That would be an interesting correlation if it ...

Re: Age 19, colon cancer, did everything t get diagnosed ?

I think it is very unlikely you have cancer, given your age and the fact that a colonscopy came out negative. There is a fine balance between being an hipocondriac and one who ignores simptoms, I am more on the other edge and was thinking «if I can run I cannot be seriously sick». :lol: But being so...

Re: PET scan not good :(. Anybody's surgeon was able to find a 8mm lung nodule via VATS?

Sorry for your news. I had a 9x11 mm met removed from inside right lower lobe, via VATS, in 2009. Someone said that the surgeon has to be able to feel the nodule with his/her hands in order to remove it with VATS. I want you to know that this is not necessarily true. In my case (deep in lower lobe ...
