Despite modern treatments, there is still no cure for breast cancer. Suffers may or may not have recurrence regardless of their treatment histories, and currently, there is no way to know if you were 'cured' unless you die from another cause. Some patients never have breast cancer again, and some can have recurrence once or multiple times any number of years after treatment. Some metastasize and spread to other parts of the body; eventually causing death.

After undergoing a mastectomy, there's only a few places that cancer could reappear, and thankfully most of them are easily identifiable. Overtop of the silicon implant sits a layer of chest muscle, AlloDerm or artificial skin, or just a layer of normal fatty tissue. A mastectomy removes all breast tissue which leaves little room for cancer to come back. If there is a recurrence, you should be able to easily feel or even see it. But don't forget to check the lymph nodes in your armpit as well. Even after having a lumpectomy or mastectomy, cancer can still recur in the lymph nodes. In the case of a recurrence, the lymph nodes can swell to the size of a golf ball, meaning self exams are very important. Your doctor can also perform a breast MRI to detect a recurrence. This targets local regional recurrence and catches more subtle cancers that aren't as easily detected during self exams.

We teach you how to understand the risk to your life from your breast cancer. Ask your breast cancer specialists about the specific threat for your unique cancer situation. 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 Cancer Specialists: 1. Am I going to die of breast cancer? 2. What is the percentage chance I could die in the next 5 years? 3. Do factors like “triple negative receptors” or “HER2-positive receptors” or “my youth” make my chance of dying higher than the average statistics? 4. Will I die of breast cancer? This is a difficult question to answer early in your cancer care but it is still worth asking. Many people just diagnosed with cancer have no idea how much of a risk to their life their unique situation poses. Most breast cancers carry a low risk of recurrence, especially early stage cancers. The answer is usually reassuring. What is the chance I could die in the next 5 years? The average 5-year survival rate for all people with breast cancer is 89%. The 10-year rate is 83%; and the 15-year rate is 78%. If the cancer is located only in the breast (Stage I), the 5-year survival rate is 99%. More than 70% of breast cancers are diagnosed at an Early Stage. All survival statistics are primarily based on the stage of breast cancer when diagnosed. Some of the other important factors are also listed below that affect survival. Breast Cancer Stage is important: Non-invasive breast cancer Stage 0 breast cancer can be also described as a “pre-cancer.” If you have DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In-situ) you can be quite confident you will do well. DCIS does not spread to other organs. What can be concerning is when an invasive cancer grows back in the area of a prior lumpectomy for DCIS. This type of local recurrence does carry a risk to your life. Luckily, this does not happen frequently. Also, be aware that those who have had DCIS in the past are at a higher risk for developing an entirely new, invasive breast cancer. Take our video lesson on “Non-Invasive DCIS“ (here) to learn more. Early Stage “Invasive breast cancer“ Stage I invasive breast cancer has an excellent survival rate. The chance of dying of Stage I breast cancer within five years of diagnosis is 1 to 5% if you pursue recommended treatments. Stage II breast cancer is also considered an early stage breast cancer. There is a slightly increased risk to your life versus a Stage I breast cancer. Altogether, the risk of Stage II breast cancer threatening your life in the next 5 years is about 15%. Later-Stage breast cancer (more advanced cancer) Stage III breast cancer has a higher risk to your life, with a 72% survival at 5 years. There are many individual and tumor specific factors that can change this survival rate. Inflammatory breast cancer is a more worrisome Stage III breast cancer. Overall, the 5-year survival rate for inflammatory breast cancer is about 50%. Stage IV breast cancer means that the cancer has spread beyond the breast to other organs or parts of the body. These metastases are not viewed in general to be curable. The treatment is aimed at helping people live longer with their cancer. This is the type of cancer carries up to 75 to 80% risk of dying within five years. What tumor factors threaten my life more? There are important “tumor biology” factors not well reflected in survival statistics by breast cancer “stage.” Below we list a few important factors that carry a higher risk to life beyond just the stage of cancer. “Triple Negative Receptor” breast cancer Triple negative breast cancer is considered a more aggressive breast cancer. Invariably it does require chemotherapy. If you have a triple negative breast cancer the risk of dying is higher than the standard statistics usually quoted for a particular stage of breast cancer (Stage I – IV). Learn more about “Triple Negative Breast Cancer“ with our video lesson (here) “HER2-Positive” breast cancer HER2-positive breast cancers are also more aggressive tumors. But the good news is that we now have incredibly effective, targeted chemotherapy and immunotherapy for HER2-positive cancers. Our video lesson covers “HER2-Positive Breast Cancer“ in more detail (here). Untreated breast cancer Untreated breast cancer obviously carries a higher risk of death than those who undergoing treatment. All survival statistics are based on breast cancer that underwent recommended treatment such as surgery, endocrine therapy, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. If you elect to not undergo standard treatment options, your chance of survival will be lower than the standard statistics for survival by stage.

Dynamics of Cancer Recurrence In 1999 Karrison and co workers published a landmark study "Dormancy of Mammary Carcinoma After Mastectomy " They describe recurrent cancer in 1547 women who underwent radical mastectomy. I discus Karrison’s paper together with a publication of the early breast cancer trialist group (EBCTCG} in cancer recurrence. The main conclusion is that breast cancer treatment is associated with an increased hazard rate. It is particularly dangerous to young women.

We teach you about the indications for, and benefits of breast radiation after a lumpectomy or mastectomy. Learn about the criteria to possibly avoid radiation after a lumpectomy. 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 Surgeon and Radiation Oncologist: Will I need radiation if I have a lumpectomy? Will I need radiation if I have a mastectomy? How can I avoid radiation for my cancer? Will I need radiation if I have a lumpectomy? The answer is most likely, YES. For those diagnosed with a small, Early-Stage breast cancer, a lumpectomy followed by radiation is just as effective at curing your cancer as a mastectomy without radiation. Whenever the term “lumpectomy” is mentioned, it is assumed that “radiation” will follow the surgery in order to keep the chance of a breast cancer local recurrence to an acceptably low rate. There are some instances where a lumpectomy without radiation may be an option for those with very favorable breast cancers. Review our lesson on “Breast Cancer Recurrence” to learn about the threat to your life from “local and regional recurrence.” Why is radiation often needed after surgery? Quite simply, radiation reduces the chance of cancer growing back in the area where the tumor was surgically removed. When a lumpectomy is performed, the surgeon removes a normal layer of breast tissue around the cancer, called margins. Even if the margins are “clear” and uninvolved with cancer, there is still a small chance cancer cells can be left behind in that area of the breast. In the future, these cells can grow to become a “local recurrence” of cancer in the same area of the surgery. Without radiation, the chance of local recurrence after a lumpectomy is about 15 to 25% over a period of 10 years. Radiation reduces this risk to about 5 to 8%. Will I need radiation after a mastectomy? The answer is most likely, no. Post Mastectomy Radiation Therapy (PMRT) is the term for applying radiation to the area of the chest wall after a mastectomy, usually performed about 4 weeks after surgery or after both surgery and chemotherapy are completed. PMRT is generally recommended for those with a high risk of local recurrence. If you or your surgeon. before surgery, think you might need PMRT it is essential to see your radiation oncologist before you have mastectomy surgery. This way, your radiation oncologist will better understand the size, shape, and extent of your breast tumor before it is removed by surgery or has shrunk away with neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Radiation oncologists have a unique insight into breast cancer treatment options that can assist your surgeon in planning the direction of your cancer care. The decision to undergo Post Mastectomy Radiation Therapy is complicated. Patients should insist on a multidisciplinary team approach to get the best treatment recommendations for high risk breast cancer situations. When your breast surgeon works closely with your radiation oncologist and medical oncologist, you will be offered the best treatment options. Below is a general outline to help you understand when radiation after a mastectomy is needed. How can I avoid radiation for my cancer? Your surgical choice: Lumpectomy vs Mastectomy: Lumpectomy with radiation is just as effective as a mastectomy without radiation for most early stage breast cancers. This is a choice made with your breast surgeon and is obviously a difficult one. The decision is also a personal one. Usually, you can avoid radiation if a mastectomy is performed for favorable cancers. Review our lesson on "Lumpectomy vs. Mastectomy" to learn the questions to ask your surgeon to be better informed about the risk and benefits of each surgical approach. Advanced age or poor health: If you are older than 70 and have a favorable, small tumor with no lymph nodes involved, you can consider having a lumpectomy and withholding radiation. This approach is only possible when you take a 5 to 10-year course of hormonal therapy. There are specific criteria for this “lumpectomy only” approach. Make sure to ask your radiation oncologist about the risks and benefits of radiation and no radiation in this situation. The same approach can apply if someone is more advanced in age or those with a fragile health status. In these situations, the risks of radiation can sometime outweigh the benefits of post-lumpectomy radiation. Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy before surgery for well selected patients can sometimes destroy all of the cancer cells in the breast and the lymph nodes. When surgery reveals that the tissue has no residual cancer cells after completing chemotherapy, this is called a Pathologic Complete Response (pCR).

The longer women with breast cancer wait to receive radiation therapy after having surgery, the greater their risk of experiencing a recurrence, according to research published online ahead of print in the British Medial Journal. Here is some information about radiation therapy: • It involves using ionizing radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors • Radiation energy attacks genetic material in targeted cells, making it impossible for them to grow and reproduce • Radiation therapy damages both cancer cells and healthy cells, but healthy cells are better able to recover from the damage Researchers from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston looked at the relationship between wait times for radiation therapy and recurrence rates among over 18,000 U.S. women with breast cancer who were aged 65 or older. All the women received breast conserving surgery and radiation therapy but not chemotherapy. On average, the women waited just over a month to start radiation therapy after their surgery, but nearly one-third waited six weeks or more. Waiting that long was associated with a 19% increased risk of having a cancer recurrence. Women were more likely to have to wait six weeks or longer for radiation therapy if they had early signs of cancer spread, other medical conditions, or a history of low income. Longer waits also occurred more commonly in Black and Hispanic women, among those who were diagnosed later, and among those living outside the southern U.S. We spoke with Dr. Rinaa Punglia, the principal investigator of this study, who offered some further insight. Today's research highlights the need to provide radiation therapy as soon as possible after surgery for breast cancer.

We teach you why Triple Negative Breast Cancer is threatening. Learn how it is treated, and it's link 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. What exactly is triple negative breast cancer? 2. Will I need Chemotherapy? 3. What are the benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo? 4. Isn’t Neoadjuvant Chemo recommended more now? 5. Do I qualify for BRCA genetic testing? 6. Should I consider a Clinical Trial? 7. What is “Triple Negative” breast cancer? “Triple Negative” breast cancers are fast growing tumors that more frequently spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Because of this, they are a bigger threat to your life than most other types of cancers of similar size with a different receptor pattern. These cancers are called “triple negative” because the three most important breast cancer “receptors” on the surface of the cells are not present (negative). When present, these receptors are used as targets to attack the cancer with medications. When absent, the main medical therapy is chemotherapy. Your Breast Surgeon will know your “receptor pattern” within days after your initial breast biopsy. These results are often not communicated to you early on in your decision process. Although only 15% of breast cancers are “triple negative,” it is imperative that you specifically ask your surgeon immediately, and well before surgery, “What are my receptor results?” “Triple Negative” is treated with Chemotherapy These cancers are often sensitive to chemotherapy and it is offered to almost everyone healthy enough to tolerate it. Chemotherapy is obviously a more intense cancer treatment than hormonal therapy (pills). But unfortunately, since triple negative cancers do not have “Estrogen receptors” (ER negative), hormonal therapy is not helpful at all. The time to cure triple negative cancer is now, not when it recurs later. Chemotherapy and surgery is the standard for treating triple negative breast cancer. Ask about the benefits of “Neoadjuvant Chemo” What is often overlooked are the benefits of offering neoadjuvant chemotherapy for patients with triple negative, “Early-Stage” (I & II) breast cancer. There may be distinct advantages (listed below) to having chemotherapy before surgery, not after surgery if you have a triple negative tumor. The decision to consider neoadjuvant chemotherapy always begins with your breast surgeon. You must address this “cutting edge” treatment option well before surgery to benefit from neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Do not be afraid to ask. This is a very important question. The Potential Benefits of Neoadjuvant Chemo: *Begin life-saving chemotherapy earlier *Reduce the need for a mastectomy *Improve cosmetic outcomes with a lumpectomy *Reduce the need for an “Axillary Dissection” *Allows more time for BRCA genetic testing *More time to think about “lumpectomy vs. mastectomy” *Shows your cancer team if the chemo is working *Can sometimes eliminate all cancer cells before surgery *May reduce the need for radiation after a mastectomy Ask for BRCA Genetic Testing Triple negative breast cancers can be associated with inherited genetic mutations. Any woman who has ever been diagnosed with a triple negative breast cancer at age 60 or younger is at a high risk for carrying the BRCA mutation. If you also have a strong family history of breast or ovarian cancer you are at an even higher risk. Unfortunately, genetic testing is often not offered for triple negative breast cancer patients. It is important to ask for BRCA Genetic Testing in this situation. 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. African Americans are a higher risk for Triple Negative African American and women of West African descent are at a higher risk of developing triple negative breast cancers than most other ethnic groups. Thirty percent (30%) of all breast cancers in this group are triple negative. Younger women are at a higher risk for Triple Negative Women diagnosed with invasive breast cancer before 40 are at a higher risk for having triple negative disease when compared to older women. Any women diagnosed before the age of 50 qualifies for genetic testing and should consider genetic counseling. Ask if you would benefit from a Clinical Trial New therapies must be studied in clinical trials to make sure they are safe and effective at treating breast cancer. Ask your medical oncologist if they offer or recommend you participate in a clinical trial.

How to treat Recurrent Cancer Current treatment of recurrent cancer is not optimal since medicine ignores that organism resists the tumor. Host resistance may be weak yet it is significant. Obviously if host resistance is high patient requires less drugs and vice versa. Here is an example of therapy which considers host resistance. A woman leaving mammography with a localized breast tumor is treated and tumor is removed. In most women treatment will leave behind tumor remnants too small to be detected. They will grow and later on present as recurrent tumors. The question is how to treat them optimally? I maintain that breast cancer is driven by a virus to which it responds with a tumor. During an aggressive virus infection tumor grows faster and vice versa. I regard tumor as biomarker of two processes: 1. Severity of virus infection 2. Host resistance. Once cancer recurs it is essentially incurable, and the only therapeutic objective is dormancy induction. Cancer dormancy has two manifestations: 1. Tumor stops growing or grows extremely slowly. 2. Tumor is invisible Dormancy induction requires small drug doses. You start with a small dose. Rise it gradually until dormancy is achieved. The initial small dose depends on the time of tumor recurrence. The later tumor recurs the smaller dose is needed

We teach you how invasive breast cancer can threaten your life and guide you to the key information you need to know to get the best possible treatment. 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 Cancer Specialists: 1. What is invasive breast cancer? 2. What type of breast cancer do I have? 3. What is the chance I will die of my breast cancer? 4. What are my receptor results? 5. May I have a copy of my pathology report? 6. Do I qualify for genetic testing? 7. What is invasive breast cancer? Invasive breast cancer is defined by breast cells that grow abnormally fast and have developed the ability to spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. It can take years for breast cells to slowly develop the genetic changes (mutations) to change from a normal cell to an invasive cancer cell. But once they do, some spread more rapidly and others grow very slowly and may not spread at all beyond the breast. Invasive breast cancer can threaten your life. “Non-invasive” breast cancer are cells that also grow abnormally fast, but cannot yet spread beyond the breast to threaten someone’s life. Ductal Carcinoma In-Situ (DCIS) is an example of non-invasive breast cancer and is generally categorized under “breast cancer” by most organizations. It is covered in our “Non-invasive DCIS” lesson and is more of a “pre-cancerous” condition. Important facts if you have an Invasive Breast Cancer: Treatments can cure 90% of all women with breast cancer The majority of all patients are diagnosed at an early stage Surgery, hormonal therapy, chemotherapy, and radiation are treatment options You have time before choosing a treatment pathway You may qualify for genetic testing Types of invasive breast cancer: Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma is the most common (70%) type of invasive breast cancer. It is called “ductal” because the cancer cells originate from the cells lining the milk ducts. There are many other factors beyond “type” of cancer that are important. Infiltrating Lobular Carcinoma occurs in less than 20% of patients. It is called “lobular” because the cells originate from the “lobules” of the milk ducts. Lobular cancers are no worse or better than invasive ductal cancers from a survival perspective. There are some unique features of lobular cancers that can affect diagnosis and treatment. Ask you physician how an invasive lobular carcinoma is different from an invasive ductal carcinoma. Other types: Inflammatory Breast Cancer (5%) is a very aggressive cancer. Colloid and Mucinous (3%) are considered less aggressive breast cancers and carry a lower risk to one’s health. There are other less common types of invasive breast cancer that we have not covered. What is the chance I will die of my cancer? Most women just diagnosed with breast cancer have no idea how much of a risk to their life their unique situation poses. Any invasive breast cancer does impart some level of risk to your life. However, this risk is usually less than you would assume. Why are “receptors” important? Receptors are tiny proteins on the surface of the cells that act like “light switches” that can turn on and off cancer cell growth. The Estrogen receptor (ER), Progesterone receptor (PR) and HER2 receptor results are incredibly important for you to know and understand. Take our lesson on “My Tumor Receptors” to learn the essentials. How do you treat invasive breast cancer? The most common first treatment for early stage invasive breast cancer is surgery, possibly followed by chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and then hormonal therapy. Breast cancer treatment is incredibly complex and there can be many different approaches to the same type of breast cancer. There are some situations that are better treated by “neoadjuvant chemotherapy” as a first treatment rather than surgery. The Breast Cancer School for Patients was created to help you to make the best treatment decisions with your breast specialists in your community. You may qualify for genetic testing Invasive breast cancer is known to be associated with the BRCA gene mutation. 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. Most breast cancers are not the result of the BRCA mutation. In fact, it is estimated that the BRCA and similar genetic mutations cause only 10 to 15% of all breast cancers. It is important to ask your physicians if you meet the guidelines for genetic counseling and testing. Take our “BRCA Genetic Testing” lesson to learn more.

This video shows the overview of breast cancer treatment guideline and survival rate statistics, by all stages of stage 0 1 2 3 and 4, including breast cancer life expectancy and prognosis studies by authorities. ⭐️ AHCC Breast Cancer Treatment testimonials: http://bit.ly/2N0bRdS Starting from Stage 0, the earliest stage that is a non-invasive precancerous condition. There are two types of Stage 0 breast cancer: Lobular Carcinoma In Situ (LCIS) where abnormal cells are found to start growing in lobules of patients, and Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) where abnormal cells are found in the lining of the breast milk duct. Stage 1 breast Cancer is confined within the breast tissue, or it might be found in lymph nodes close to the breast. Further categorized into Stage IA and Stage IB. Stage 2 means breast cancers are larger than stage 1, or the cancer has spread to a few nearby lymph nodes. The sub-stages include stage IIA and IIB. Stage 3 breast cancer means larger tumors have grown into nearby tissues, or they have spread to many nearby lymph nodes. This stage is further divided into Stage IIIA / IIIB / IIIC. Stage 4, also called Metastatic Breast Cancer or advanced breast cancer, means the cancer has spread elsewhere in the body. Affected areas may include bones, brain, lungs or liver, and more than one part of the body may be involved. The video covers various breast cancer treatment options by stage, including Tamoxifen, Lumpectomy, Mastectomy, and more. This video also covers breast cancer statistics published by American Cancer Society and Cancer Research UK etc, including cervical cancer life expectancy and 10-years / 5-year survival rate by stages of Stage 4 / 3 / 2 / 1 / 0. For instance, stage 2 breast cancer survival rate after 10 years is around 40% to 60%. As revealed, the survival rates and how long to live depend on several other factors besides cancer stage and health condition of patients.

Fast forward to today, after 6 rounds of chemo (sorry I haven't had time to edit and upload my vlogs but I'll definitely go back in time later), I finally receive my CT scan results which determine whether or not I need more chemo, or if I can move on to hormone therapy... the results? POSITIVE!!! My 6th round was finally, MY LAST!!! In this video I show the anxiety a cancer patient gets waiting for results. It's tough to watch but it's real!

Breast cancer recurs in different ways. One of those ways is when the cancer comes back in the same spot or near by as the original cancer. Learn about the other ways that breast cancer can recur and more from Dr. Harness in the video.

Submit your question now at, http://www.breastcanceranswers.com/ask In this clip, Jay Harness, MD, FACS explains what breast cancer recurrence is. When we talk about breast cancer recurrence, there are basically two types of recurrence: one is the local recurrence within the breast itself, or perhaps, in lymph nodes that were in the neighborhood. Let's say you had a sentinel lymph node biopsy done and then not all the lymph nodes were removed originally, the cancer could recur there or within the breast. So that's called a local recurrence. Typically, that's treated by further surgery and other forms of therapy. Distant recurrence... Another term for that is called 'systemic failure', meaning the cancer has gone elsewhere within the body. Typical sites are brain, bone, lung, liver, or occasionally to the organs of the abdominal cavity. That means that a patient who has had distant recurrence is now stage 4, and we also say that kind of distant recurrence is usually treated initially with chemotherapy, and then if the patient is estrogen receptor positive, patient typically would be on an anti-estrogen pill indefinitely.

Julia White, MD, professor of Radiation Oncology, Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center, discusses the omission of radiation therapy for patients with breast cancer. Omitting radiation in this space requires finding a population of patients that has a low enough overall risk following lumpectomy, says White. The omission of radiation will leave patients with a slightly higher locoregional recurrence risk than if they had been radiated or had undergone a mastectomy. The omission of radiation in younger patients with breast cancer. This is a bit harder, says White, because there are some subgroups of patients that can have quite high recurrence risks. Biologic selection criteria can be used along with the basic, clinical pathologic criteria to find a group of patients who may, indeed, have a slightly higher risk of local recurrence, but whose overall survival will not be significantly affected.

Cancer is multifaceted, and generally treated with big pharma products, like chemicals, radiation, and chemotherapy. What if there were foods that naturally killed cancer ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpHcLxD8Drk Please subscribe and watch this video until the end to know the complete information. These are the 5 foods that help get rid of cancer cells developing in our bodies. 1. THE BLUEBERRY And RASPBERRY EFFECT. Blueberries and raspberries are plants that are well known by their anti cancer capabilities, especially when it comes to ovarian cancer. Phytochemicals are the reason why they have their dark hue. and the secret of their effectiveness, which are proven to be great for cancer prevention. 2. GREEN TEA. Tea is the best source of catechins in the human diet, and green tea contains about three times the quantity of catechins found in black tea. In laboratory studies, green tea has been shown to slow or completely prevent cancer development in colon, liver, breast and prostate cells. 3. THE TOMATO EFFECT. According to recent Harvard research, there is up to 50% reduction in chances for prostate cancer in people who regularly ate cooked tomatoes. It was proven that tomatoes are incredibly effective in inhibiting the angiogenesis, and the reason why this fruit is so effective is that they contain high amounts of a substance called lycopene, which has strong anti angiogenic properties. In addition, lycopene concentration increases when it is subjected to higher temperatures. That is why cooked tomatoes are very effective when it comes to stopping cancer growth. 4. DARK CHOCOLATE. For many people this is almost unbelievable. Dark chocolate is an incredibly tasty dessert, which also happens to be incredibly healthy to eat, it is good for your heart condition, your overall happiness and also for fighting cancer cells. 5. TURMERIC. This plant has various health benefits, and it is well known by the effectiveness in fat reduction, turmeric is also used as a preventive measure against cancer. It seems to be able to kill cancer cells and prevent more from growing. It has the best effects on breast cancer, bowel cancer, stomach cancer and skin cancer cells.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. Among the 1.67 million women diagnosed each year, 15% are diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). More common in women under the age of 50, TNBC has limited treatment options and is associated with particularly poor survival rates. Knowing the signs and symptoms of breast cancer is essential for early diagnosis and treatment. For more information on TNBC, visit https://www.roche.com/dam/jcr:83655b8...

Learn if a mastectomy can prevent breast recurrence or not. ASK Cancer Wisdom is our video series where we answer your questions about cancer. Ask a question to our channel: http://bit.ly/2yEmzCx Download The Breast Cancer Healing Protocol: http://bit.ly/2SjYPfc Question answered in this video: "I got a breast cancer diagnosis, and my doctor wants me to do a mastectomy. Will a mastectomy cure my breast cancer and prevent it from ever returning?" Even if you remove your breasts, you can still manifest a chest wall tumor. It may appear in your skin, muscle, fascia and lymph nodes. Western medicine only treats the symptoms of diseases and not the cause. Removing your breasts will not stop cancer from returning if you don’t fix the underlying issue. Cancer cells manifest when there are too many toxins in the body. The poisons are the real problem, not cancer. By destroying the tumor, the real problem remains and keeps creating new tumors. Cutting out, burning or poisoning a tumor does not prevent the toxins from spreading. It’s like growing a flower in toxic soil and think that you can cure it by removing the parts that look unhealthy. No cancer treatment can compete with the body’s healing mechanism. You have to remove the poisons already present and prevent new ones to stop cancer. When the obstruction is gone, there is no need for the body to create new cancer cells.

We teach you how your tumor receptors, lymph nodes, genomic assays, and breast cancer stage indicates if you would benefit from chemotherapy. 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 and Breast Surgeon: 1. Would I benefit from chemotherapy? 2. What factors suggest I will benefit from chemotherapy? 3. What is the risk to my life if I do not undergo chemotherapy? 4. What are the advantages of “Neoadjuvant Chemo” before surgery? 5. Would a “Genomic Assay” help determine if I need chemotherapy? 6. What is chemotherapy? Chemotherapy is the use of certain medications to treat cancer systemically, meaning throughout the whole body. If needed, chemotherapy is usually given after surgery for invasive breast cancer. It is a more intense cancer treatment than hormonal therapy (usually pills). Only a minority of breast cancer patients will ever need it. These complex decisions are ones you will make with your medical oncologist. You will make better treatment choices when you are informed about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy before meeting with your medical oncologist. General indications for chemotherapy We outline below some of the more common indications for needing chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy also involves being healthy enough to tolerate the treatment. Deciding who needs chemotherapy and what type of chemotherapy to administer is one of the most difficult decisions made in medicine. Your medical oncologist will guide you. Do my “receptors” suggest I need chemotherapy? Once a breast biopsy is found to be cancerous, the pathologists will automatically run more tests on the same tissue to determine what “receptors” are expressed. Your receptor pattern is a key piece of information that comes early in your breast cancer journey. In about 30% of patients with an invasive breast cancer, the receptor pattern alone can strongly suggest that chemotherapy will be needed regardless of what is found at surgery. The key points regarding receptors are outlined below. Estrogen Receptor Negative (ER -) tumors (20%) do not respond to anti-estrogen oral medications that are essential in treating estrogen receptor positive (ER +) tumors. Quite simply, patients with ER negative tumors will benefit from chemotherapy if they are healthy enough to tolerate it. ER negative tumors are more aggressive cancers, but respond more favorably to chemotherapy than ER positive breast cancers. HER2 Receptor Positive (HER2+) tumors (20%) are very responsive to chemotherapy when paired with new breakthrough drugs that target these tumors, such as Herceptin and Perjeta. The same holds true even if a HER2-positive tumor is also Estrogen Receptor positive (ER+). HER2+ tumors are more aggressive cancers, but we now can treat them more effectively with chemotherapy and new drugs that are “targeted” to destroy HER2-positive cancers. “Triple Negative” (ER-)(PR-)(HER2-) tumors are fast growing tumors that are usually treated with a specific chemotherapy regimen. These tumors are not responsive to hormonal therapy at all, but may be sensitive to chemotherapy. What if cancer is detected in the lymph nodes? If you have “lymph node positive” breast cancer, it is likely you will be offered chemotherapy. Premenopausal women and those with multiple “positive” lymph nodes generally benefit from chemotherapy. If your breast surgeon detects cancer in your lymph nodes before surgery, there may be specific advantages to undergoing “neoadjuvant chemotherapy.” “Inflammatory Breast Cancer” requires chemotherapy If you have been diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, the first step is neoadjuvant chemotherapy before surgery. This type of cancer has a high likelihood of spreading to the lymph nodes and other parts of the body. Starting chemotherapy as soon as possible is essential to treating this aggressive breast cancer. A mastectomy is performed after chemotherapy, followed by radiation to the area of the mastectomy to lessen the chance of cancer growing back in that area. What are the advantages of “neoadjuvant chemotherapy”? Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is when chemotherapy is given before surgery, not afterwards. There are specific advantages to neoadjuvant chemotherapy in appropriately selected patients. How can a genomic “Oncotype DX” test be helpful? 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 breast cancer cells to better identify people who may benefit from chemotherapy with ER+, HER2 – breast cancers.

Leanne Coombes from Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada Leanne in her own words: "I was diagnosed in 2006 with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma in Situ) in my left breast, so I went through surgery and radiation. My lymph nodes were clean and they were hoping that was it. But in 2008 it came back in the same place, so I had more surgery, this time it had traveled to my lymph nodes, and I went through 6 months of chemotherapy. And just in June 2011, it was discovered that it has come back again, this time it has metastasized to my bones and liver. Some chemotherapy and radiation were offered to deal with the pain, etc. I knew that there was healing that could happen to my body, I really believed that my body could heal from the cancer this was taking over... So I started doing some research online and came across some great places. But one day while searching I came across Issels (http://www.issels.com) and I spent 2 hours on the website just reading and rereading. I just had an incredible peace come over me that this was where I needed to be to heal. So here I am and I've been here almost 3 weeks and had some great results. We've been following some of my tumor markers, I've had 3 abnormal tumor markers that had dropped already in a short period of time. The largest drop being my CA-125 and it's dropped from 70 to 52 so that's a pretty big success, I'm very excited. I'm feeling great. Treatments are just fabulous...I'm feeling just better and better with each day. I will be leaving here with such an optimistic outlook, the most optimism I've had for a future. And I really can't say enough about the staff here. They've just been incredible, loving, caring people. Issels has definitely been a life-changing experience for me. I know I'm on my way to healing." For more information about the Issels Treatment, please visit our website: http://www.issels.com.

At the 14th St. Gallen International Breast Cancer Conference 2015, Eleftherios P. Mamounas, MD, of University of Florida Health Cancer Center-Orlando Health, discusses the use of multigene assays, which analyse the activity of groups of genes in breast cancer cells, for predicting late recurrence in patients with early stage, oestrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. An example of a multigene assay is the Oncotype DX® Breast Cancer Assay, which was developed to stratify the risk of recurrence in patients with breast cancer after initial tamoxifen therapy. Information gained from the Oncotype DX assay may be used to help identify patients who are likely, or unlikely, to benefit from adjuvant chemotherapy.

A study published in the June Lancet Oncology reports early stage breast cancer patients who produce circulating tumor cells (CTC) may be at greater risk for breast cancer recurrence. Until now, lymph node biopsy has been the best predictor of prognosis. More research is needed to learn how to apply this new discovery, but the study is a step forward in understanding what is happening biologically. Anthony Lucci, M.D., professor, and Isabelle Bedrosian, M.D., associate professor, both in Surgical Oncology at MD Anderson Cancer Center, discuss their research.
