Hormonal Therapy for Breast Cancer: We Teach You
 
13:39
We teach you about hormonal therapy for breast cancer. Drugs such as tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors are key treatment options for most breast cancers. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ ________________________________ Questions for your Medical Oncologist: 1. What type of hormonal therapy do you recommend? 2. Will I also benefit from chemotherapy? 3. What are the side effects of hormonal therapy? 4. Will I need 5 or 10 years of these medications? 5. Would the genomic assay Oncotype DX be helpful? 6. What is Hormonal Therapy? Anti-estrogen (estrogen-blocking) medications, prescribed as pills, are incredibly effective at treating certain types of breast cancer. Hormonal therapy is given to about 70 to 80% of women with breast cancer. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, is a more intense cancer treatment that is generally administered intravenously. Most patients will not need chemotherapy. Many women that do need chemotherapy will also benefit from hormonal therapy. These treatment decisions are complex ones with your medical oncologist. You will make better choices when you are well informed before meeting with your medical oncologist. Do my “Receptors” suggest Hormonal Therapy? When the estrogen circulating in your blood stream interacts with a breast cancer that has “Estrogen Receptors” (ER) present on its surface, it tends to flip the ER switch to the “on” or “grow” position for ER Positive tumors. The same can be said to a lesser extent for the “Progesterone Receptor,” if your cancer is found to also be PR positive. Patients with ER+ breast cancers almost always benefit from the anti-estrogen effects of hormonal therapy. These medications can make cancer cells die, or slow down their growth. If a few cancer cells have already spread to other parts of the body, these medications are incredibly effective at preventing these cells from growing and threatening your life in the future. In other words, those who take hormonal therapy for ER+ tumors have a more successful chance at long-term survival when compared to those who do not. About 80% of all breast cancers are ER+. Even if your medical oncologist recommends chemotherapy for you, if your tumor is ER+ you will also benefit from up to 10 years of hormonal therapy after chemotherapy. Hormonal therapy is never given during chemotherapy nor during radiation therapy. What is “Tamoxifen?” Tamoxifen is an anti-estrogen medication (pills) that has been used with great success with ER+ cancers for three decades. It is now the primary hormonal therapy for younger, pre-menopausal women. It is also the primary drug for men with breast cancer. It is used for some post-menopausal women. What are “Aromatase Inhibitors?” Aromatase inhibitors (AIs) are a class of anti-estrogen medications (pills) that have proven to be slightly more effective than Tamoxifen for post-menopausal women. It is not recommended for younger, pre-menopausal women, except in certain circumstances. The three most common versions are Anastrozole (Arimidex), Letrozole (Femara), and Exemestane (Aromasin). What are the side effects of Hormonal Therapy? Side effects vary greatly from one person to the next for both types of hormonal medications. Some have no symptoms at all. Most have very tolerable side effects. Some patients will need to change hormonal therapy medications to find the best balance of cancer benefit versus side effects. Several side effects that are rather common for both tamoxifen and aromatase inhibitors are hot flashes, night sweats, joint pain, and vaginal dryness. Below, we list some of the other specific side effects for both drugs. Tamoxifen Side Effects: Increased risk of uterine (endometrial) cancer Increased risk of developing blood clots Slows normal bone loss in most women (a “good” side effect) Cannot be taken during pregnancy because of risk of birth defects or fetal death Can temporarily induce menopause in pre-menopausal women. Aromatase Inhibitor Side Effects: Can worsen bone loss (osteoporosis) in women Muscle and joint aches and pains Would an “Oncotype DX” assay help me? Patients who have a small, estrogen receptor positive, HER2 receptor negative tumor, and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX genomic assay. This cutting-edge test looks deeper into your cancer cells to better identify people who may also benefit from chemotherapy with ER+ breast cancers. The decision to undergo chemotherapy, in addition to hormonal therapy, is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist uses many factors to help decide if you will benefit from chemotherapy. An Oncotype DX analysis of a portion of your breast cancer tissue can be instrumental in this decision.

Stop Breast Radiotherapy! Prefer Tamoxifen
 
13:53
Stop Breast Radiotherapy! Prefer Tamoxifen Radiotherapy is the most dangerous treatment of cancer. Nevertheless millions of breast cancer patients are exposed to it. Which is unnecessary. In order to prevent cancer recurrence, newly diagnosed women are irradiated. This procedure was recommended by the Early Breast Cancer Trialists' Collaborative Group (EBCTCG ) . Radiotherapy reduces cancer recurrence but has no effect on survival. Patients who underwent BCT have a higher breast cancer--specific survival rate compared with those treated with mastectomy alone or mastectomy with radiation for early-stage invasive ductal carcinoma" (Agarwal S. et al.) 2236 women were recruited into START-A 2215 women were recruited into START-B 67•2% deaths in START-B were from breast cancer 4•8% were related to cardiac disease only 13•7% were from other cancers 11•4% were from other non cancer causes, 2•8% were from unknown cause 64•7% of the deaths from cardiac disease were in women with left-sided primary tumours" Radiation destroys cells causing mammary gland cytopenia which later on is replaced by fibrocytes, and the breast becomes hardened. Breast shrinkage, and induration are indicators of similar changes in tissues under the isodose distribution. Breast is a biomarker of radiation damage in adjacent tissues. 48.6% of women had radiation damaged, lung, rib, sternum and heart. Damage intensity depends on their position under the isodose surface. It may be small but accumulates with time, and is irreversible. You have here two treatments for reduction of cancer recurrence. 1. Radiotherapy, with irreversible toxicities and no improvement of survival. 2. Tamoxifen, generally with reversible toxicities and improved survival. Tamoxifen does not damage with radiation isodoses, and is therefore much less risky Replace breast radiotherapy with tamoxifen. By the way I would not recommend any treatment for reducing tumor recurrence. Let it pop up and then put it to sleep.

How is breast cancer treated
 
03:25
Today in this video i am going to tell you about How is breast cancer treated? So, Before watch our video take a moment to subscribe our channel and click on the bell button. then you will be first to know when we will post new video. here are many different breast cancer treatments, based on its type and stage, and many women get more than one type of treatment. There are “local treatments,” meaning they treat the tumor without affecting the rest of the body and “systemic treatments,” which can reach cancer cells throughout the body. Local breast cancer treatments! Surgery! Most women will need surgery as part of their breast cancer treatment, says Dr. Kruse. “It can be anything from just removing the cancer itself to removing the whole breast,” she explains. You might opt for a lumpectomy, for example, where only the part of the breast containing the cancer is removed or a mastectomy, which is removal of the entire breast. Radiation! Radiation therapy is treatment with high-energy rays (such as x-rays) or particles that destroy cancer cells. The two main types to treat breast cancer are: external beam radiation (which comes from a machine) and internal radiation (where a radioactive source is put inside the body for a short time). Not all women will need radiation but it is most often used after surgery to reduce the risk that the cancer will return. Systemic breast cancer treatments! Chemotherapy! Administered intravenously (through your vein) or by mouth, chemo is treatment with cancer-killing drugs that travel through the bloodstream to reach cancer cells all over the body. Not all women with breast cancer will need chemo but it is most commonly used: after surgery (to kill any cancer cells that may have been left behind), before surgery (to try to shrink the tumor so it may be more readily removed), or for advanced (metastatic) breast cancer. Hormone therapy! This treatment is recommended for women with hormone receptor-positive (ER-positive or PR-positive) breast cancers and it involves taking drugs (such as tamoxifen) that stop estrogen from stimulating breast cancer cell growth. Hormone therapy is often used after surgery to help reduce the risk of the cancer coming back but it is sometimes used before surgery, as well. It’s usually taken for at least five years. Targeted therapy! These are targeted drugs designed to block the growth and spread of cancer cells. They work differently than chemotherapy drugs and can sometimes work when chemo does not (they also have different side effects). Targeted therapy is most often used if you have HER-2 positive breast cancer, hormone receptor-positive (ER-positive or PR-positive) breast cancer, or if you have BRCA gene mutations.

No lymph node metastasis. IMPORTANT: Julia is NOT suggesting breast cancer patients avoid Tamoxifen. Like Julia, you need to try Tamoxifen, and if you cannot tolerate the side effects, only stop taking it when told to by your oncologist. The video documents her personal experience only. Julia is not a medical professional. This video is not meant as medical advice. If you'd like Julia to review your breast cancer related product, email her at 1z2z3zpark@gmail.com.

Extending Estrogen-Blocking Tamoxifen Therapy for Breast Cancer Patients -- Sloan-Kettering
 
01:55
At the 2012 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, researchers presented the results of a collaborative international clinical trial known as ATLAS. The study, also published December 5 in The Lancet, involved more than 6,800 women with estrogen-receptor- (ER-) positive breast cancer. Women in the study took the estrogen-blocking drug tamoxifen either for the standard five years or for an extended ten years after initial surgery and/or radiation therapy.Memorial Sloan-Kettering breast cancer specialist Clifford A. Hudis comments on the study, which found that taking tamoxifen for ten years provided additional protection against breast cancer recurrence and an improvement in overall survival. These findings could have the greatest impact on younger, premenopausal women with ER-positive breast cancer who are at a high risk of recurrence and do not have alternative treatment options after the first five years of tamoxifen therapy.

How I beat breast cancer. Self healing powers, nutrition & herbal medicine vs chemo
 
20:06
I was diagnosed with breast cancer stage III in June 2015. The tumor had fully disappeared In January 2016. I briefly had chemotherapy but stopped it after 4 administrations and continued to heal myself with green juice fasting (Gerson), detoxification, a ketogenic diet, elimination of sugar, natural herbs & supplements. I learned how to activate my self healing powers trough epigenectics, meditation and prayer. Namaste, Love & Light and may God bless you. Contact me on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/nickybeatcancer/ It is November 2017 and I had an operation. The tumor came back trough 2017. Many reasons: I fell off the wagon with my eating habits, I went through a very tough time with the final divorce and split up of the house etc. This took out most of my energy levels. I did a full 42 water and herbal tea fast mid 2017 adhering to the strict Breuss fasting plan, but I could not shrink the tumor again. It was approx. 3,8cms in diameter. I spent a considerable amount of money on a treatment in a private clinic in Frankfurt for some photo dynamic laser treatment, but to no avail. In October I had all breast tissue inside my breast removed and replaced with a silicone implant. I was advised to finish the chemotherapy which I refused. I also did not have any radiation treatment nor do I take Tamoxifen. Right now as of November 2017 I am cancer free. I though long about deleting the video, as I could not fully heal it alternatively in the end, but nevertheless it represents a stage of my experience in which everything that happened was as I explained it at the time of the video shoot. In the end it was a combination of school and alternative medicine and I still believe there are different ways for each of us to battle the disease. Love & Light and lots of courage to all of you who battle the desease In August 2017 I had all my personal problems in order. The "outside" cancer as I like to call it had fully disappeared. Now it was time to amputate the "inside" cancer. And I was ready for it, for the first time... In September I made a fairly quick decision to have all the inside breast tissue removed in full and have it replace with a silicon transplant. The cosmetic result is very satisfying. Skin, and nipple could all be saved and it looks pretty natural. Hopfefully the cancer is fully removed from my system in all possible ways. Fasting to me is THE WAY to cleanse and stay healthy, but that's another subject. During the past two years I have done two intensive periods of strict water and tea fasting, one lasted 21 days the other 42 days. I am conviced this kept the cancer at bay and it did not spread further as its stage III and tumor markers indicated. These days I smile over problems because I know they will fade. I pity people who are trapped in a circle of complaining and moaning, however I will still show love and compassion towards them - even though it is very hard. I think a lot about the meaning of life, the roles we are given and the riddles and task we have to solve. I see a bigger sense in all things these days and I consider myself a much happier person. With all this in mind I strongly believe that I am cured and that the cancer will not come back. I refuse to take hormone blockers like Tamoxifen and also radiation. I was ok with the operation as I have explained, but would always refuse chemo again. No matter what. I also believe first tiny signs of cancer can be healed in full with a natural life style as the cells would be small enough to revert back to normal. But who am I to give advice to anyone in a similar situation. We are all different. We all have to find out our own special path. Update April 2018: all clear, still not taking anything... x Update May 2018: Not what I want but the truth: I ate a healthy vegetarian diet for 4 months, largely for political reasons, it didn't do me any good. Hormones went awol ! Menopausal Night sweats like crazy, mood swings, sugar cravings, anxiety, depression, arthritis, ibs and so forth. Since 14 days I have been eating strictly ketogenic - again - and guess what? Exactly ALL symptoms have disappeared. So no more experiments, ketogenic metabolism for me and this does include meat. Love & Peace. Namaste. Nicky

This animated video is an informative elaboration on treatment of breast cancer. The treatment options for breast cancer include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy. There are several surgical options depending on the severity of the cancer. A lumpectomy removes the tumour and a small amount of neighbouring tissues. Mastectomy involves removing the entire breasts and its tissues. Sentinel lymph node removal is typically performed in addition to lumpectomies and mastectomies. Here your surgeon will remove the lymph nodes closest to the tumour and check it for the presence of the cancer cells. If this node is clean, it may not be necessary to remove more lymph nodes. A prophylactic mastectomy, is a preventive surgery for high-risk woman that removes the entire breast to lower the risk of breast cancer. Radiation therapy uses high-energy X-rays or other types of radiations to kill the cancer cells or to keep them from growing. Internal radiation therapy can be used to treat the cancer from the inside of your body using needles, wires or catheters. Watch the video to know more on the treatment of breast cancer.

Irradiation of the left breast damages the heart. Avoid it!
 
16:51
Irradiation of the left breast damages the heart and should be avoided In a presentation: Breast irradiation is dangerous and should be avoided, I showed that this treatment causes radiation pneumonitis. Nevertheless any woman with breast cancer will receive radiation therapy. Medicine claims that radiation is essential for cure. This conclusion is based on a false interpretation of recent meta-analyses by Early Breast Cancer Trialists' Collaborative Group (EBCTCG) . Recently it became clear that irradiation of the left breast irreversibly damages the heart. Nevertheless any woman with a tumor in her left breast will be irradiated. Again medicine claims that radiation is essential for cure which is based on the same false interpretation of meta-analyses by Early Breast Cancer Trialists' Collaborative Group (EBCTCG). Irradiation does not eliminate the tumor and does not prolong survival. It only initiates tumor dormancy which may be achieved by less toxic treatments which do not damage the heart, like tamoxifen. Each quantum of x-rays irreversibly damages the heart and the effect is cumulative. Radiation to the thorax can damage the pericardium, myocardium, valves, and coronary vessels, with the pericardium being the most commonly involved . Radiotherapy of breast cancer does not cure. Neither does it improve survival and should therefore be prohibited.

Say No to Aromatase Inhibitors
 
21:05
Say No!! to Aromatase Inhibitors There are two kinds of hormone therapy for breast cancer: 1. One stops estrogen from acting on breast cancer cells, like Tamoxifen. 2. The other interferes with estrogen production by aromatase inhibition (AI), like Letrozole, Anastrozole, and Exemestane. The two therapies differ in their action and side effects (toxicities) 1. The effect of the first is local. It acts only on breast cancer cells and does not interfere with hormone production. 2. Effect the other is systemic. Since interfering with the aromatase enzyme it affects processes in the body which depend on sex hormones. Aromatase inhibitors (AI) have grave side effects. Although Tamoxifen is the best drug on the market it is being replaced by inferior aromatase inhibitors that are far more toxic than tamoxifen. It turns out that AI did not undergo the scrutiny which would justify their distribution. Actually aromatase inhibitors cause a systemic disease, which evolves over time. I shall now explain in plain language how these bad drugs are distributed. These trials were approved by FDA. They represent a trend to replace Overall survival (OS) with Disease free survival (DFS). 1. FDA accepts survival statistics based on two endpoints, clinical and surrogate. 2. Clinical endpoint is always reliable since it is based on a clear cut event, death. 3. Surrogate endpoint is generally unreliable Clinicians who treat these toxicities believe that they are unavoidable. They are regarded as a reasonable price for cancer therapy. In reality these bad drugs are an outcome of a false cancer theory, which is discussed in other presentation.

DCIS Breast Cancer: Learn What You Need To Know
 
17:37
We teach you about DCIS and how it is treated. This pre-cancerous problem is also a risk factor for developing invasive cancer and is linked to the BRCA genetic mutation. VISIT THE BREAST CANCER SCHOOL FOR PATIENTS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org LIST OF QUESTIONS FOR YOUR DOCTORS: http://www.breastcancercourse.org/breast-health-updates-latest-videos/ FOLLOW US: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Breast-Cancer-School-for-Patients-958519147618444/ __________________________________ Questions for your Breast Surgeon and Medical Oncologist: 1. Is DCIS a cancer or a pre-cancerous growth? 2. What exactly is the threat to my health from DCIS? 3. Are both surgery and radiation always needed for DCIS? 4. May I have a copy of my pathology reports? 5. Do I qualify for genetic testing if I have DCIS? 6. Will DCIS turn into an invasive cancer if not treated? Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ (DCIS) refers to breast cells that are growing abnormally in an area of the breast, but have not yet evolved to the point where they are considered “invasive breast cancer” and can spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Even the medical field is unsure whether to call it “non-invasive” breast cancer or a “pre-cancerous” problem. By definition, DCIS is considered a Stage O breast cancer. Important facts if you have DCIS: *If left untreated, it can evolve into an invasive breast cancer *You have a slightly higher lifetime risk of forming a new cancer in either breast in the future *You may now qualify for BRCA genetic testing. How is DCIS different from invasive cancer? Invasive Breast Cancer can threaten your life because it mau have the capacity to spread (metastasize) to other organs of the body. DCIS does not yet have this ability to spread, but it might if it evolves into an invasive breast cancer in the future. So we treat DCIS very seriously in order to lessen the risk of it developing into an invasive, life-threatening problem. Learn more about “Invasive Breast Cancer“ with our video lesson (here). What is the chance I will die of my DCIS? The risk is very low. The most comprehensive study (here) on the subject in 2015 showed that the risk of dying from any type of breast cancer 20 years after having your DCIS treated with a lumpectomy and radiation is about 1%. One take home message from this study is that you have plenty of time to make decisions with your breast specialists about how to best treat your DCIS. Lumpectomy or Mastectomy for DCIS? Removal of the area of DCIS with surgery is usually the first treatment. A lumpectomy removes the area with a surrounding margin of normal tissue. It is a great surgery if the area of DCIS is small. Radiation is generally recommended after surgery to further lessen the risk of the DCIS or an invasive cancer growing back in that area of the lumpectomy. Some women who are older or have a lower-risk type of DCIS sometimes can avoid radiation after a lumpectomy. A mastectomy is generally recommended only if DCIS involves a large area of the breast and thus would not be a good candidate for a lumpectomy and radiation. A mastectomy for DCIS does not make you live longer, but it does reduce the chance of cancer growing back in that breast. Radiation is generally not needed after a mastectomy for DCIS. Take our video lesson on “Lumpectomy or Mastectomy“ (here) to learn more. You and your breast surgeon must work closely together to decide what surgery is best for your unique cancer situation. Should I take “anti-estrogen” medicines for DCIS? When someone is diagnosed with DCIS, the pathologists will run special studies on the tumor cells to determine if Estrogen receptors and Progesterone receptors are present. If your DCIS is “Estrogen receptor positive,” taking anti-estrogen medications for 5 years can lessen the chance of developing a new breast cancer (either DCIS or invasive cancer) over the next 5 to 10 years if you had a lumpectomy. Taking “tamoxifen” or an “aromatase inhibitor” medication for this purpose is called “chemoprevention.” If a woman has bilateral mastectomies there is no need for chemoprevention because the breast tissue has been removed. Women with DCIS are felt to have an increased risk for developing new cancers in both breasts in the future. Taking these medications can reduce the risk of new breast cancers in these higher risk women, but these drugs are not without potential side effects and risks. That is why a “risk vs benefit” discussion with a medical oncologist is important. You may qualify for genetic testing if you have DCIS. DCIS is now known to be associated with the BRCA gene mutation in as similar way as women with invasive breast cancer. The BRCA (Breast Cancer) gene is commonly referred to as “The Breast Cancer Gene.” If someone inherits a broken version (mutation) of this gene at conception, they carry a very high lifetime risk of breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

Anti-Estrogen Therapy and Breast Cancer Recurrence
 
01:06
http://www.dailyrxnews.com/extending-anti-estrogen-therapy-reduced-breast-cancer-recurrence-massachusetts-general-hospital After fighting through chemotherapy, radiation or other treatments, the recurrence of cancer can be a bummer. But a new approach to hormone therapies might give doctors and patients a leg up. Research presented at the American Society of Clinical Medicine indicated that extending the length of anti-estrogen hormone therapy decreased the risk of breast cancer recurrence. A type of breast cancer known as hormone receptor-positive breast cancer is driven by the hormones estrogen, progesterone or both. As part of the treatment, women with this kind of breast cancer typically receive medications called aromatase inhibitors, which help reduce levels of estrogen. Many patients also receive a medication called tamoxifen which also reduces estrogen.
