Diagnosed with breast cancer?
By Dr. Robert J. Rowen
If You or a Loved One Are Looking for an Effective Breast Cancer Treatment,
Here Are 11 Effective, Natural Strategies that Will Help You Defeat This Deadly Disease
A diagnosis of cancer, or even being told of a suspicion of cancer, can make you extremely fearful. You reflect on friends or family who died of cancer or of celebrities with cancer that died. (Other than Suzanne Somers who went alternative, survived, thrived and wrote a book about it.) Even TV shows or movies featuring someone with cancer always have them dying at the end.
So it’s no wonder research shows that cancer is the most feared disease in the world — and the most feared word in the English language. How could it not be? Dying a painful death, poisoned by chemotherapy, burned by radiation and having your breast taken off, is not the way you want to go.
It may not be so fearful if you’ve been told to come here to read this information by someone who beat their cancer while using the cancer fighting strategies covered on this website. Otherwise, it’s no wonder that you’re afraid and skeptical. How could you not be?
In fact, the knowledge in this report is at such odds with what your doctor tells you about cancer, most people reading this page will not go on to read this entire report. It sounds too good to be true.
So one of the biggest issues that you have to wrap your mind around is the obvious thought, “If the information in this report, and the supplements recommended, are so good, why isn’t everyone using them.”
It’s a good question. The answer at its most fundamental level is money and secondarily, that it takes a great deal of time for new ways to fight disease to be accepted. Dr. Samuel S. Epstein writes about this in several books which you may want to read. He is an internationally recognized authority on the causes of cancer, particularly carcinogen exposure from food, air, water, household products, cosmetics, prescription drugs or industrial carcinogens in the workplace.
It may take quite a bit to get to the point where you realize that just doing what your doctors put you through is not adequate. Unfortunately, for many people this point comes at the end, when it is clear that medicine has failed and they are dying a painful and slow death.
It doesn’t have to be this way. One reason we make this report as long as we do is that the more you understand, the more ways you learn to beat cancer, the more testimonials you read, the more this will sink into you.
So the first thing I want to communicate to you is that there is hope. In fact, there is a whole lot of hope. The overwhelming feedback from our research is that when the right actions are taken, even aggressive, tough cancers can be defeated.
Breast Cancer Symptoms –
In its early stages, breast cancer usually has no symptoms. As a tumor develops, you may note the following signs:
A lump in the breast or underarm that persists after your menstrual cycle; often the first apparent symptom of breast cancer, breast lumps are painless, although some may cause a prickly sensation.
Lumps are usually visible on a mammogram long before they can be seen or felt.
Swelling in the armpit.
Although lumps are usually painless, pain or tenderness in the breast can be a sign of breast cancer.
A noticeable flattening or indentation on the breast, which may indicate a tumor that cannot be seen or felt.
Any change in the size, contour, texture, or temperature of the breast; a reddish, pitted surface like the skin of an orange could be a sign of advanced breast cancer.
A change in the nipple, such as an indrawn or dimpled look, itching or burning sensation, or ulceration; scaling of the nipple is symptomatic of Paget’s disease, a localized cancer.
Unusual discharge from the nipple that may be clear, bloody, or another color. It’s usually caused by benign conditions but could be due to cancer in some cases.
A marble-like area under the skin.
An area that is distinctly different from any other area on either breast.
Latest research on the effectiveness of surgery to remove all your lymph nodes for breast cancer.
I’ve spoken with many women who have told me about the pain they were still suffering long after surgery to remove their lymph nodes. It is extreme pain in many cases. Dr. Robert J. Rowen in his Second Opinion free email newsletter recently reported on some research on how effective this surgery was. It will open your eyes. He writes:
“Women with breast cancer always fear having the cancer spread to their lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are small, bean-shaped organs in your armpit (and elsewhere in your body). They act as filters, removing cancer from lymph fluid before it goes into your bloodstream. If you have cancer in the lymph nodes under your arm, you have an increased risk of the cancer spreading.
As a result, most cancer surgeons conduct radical lymph node dissection – removing the lymph nodes. This lets the surgeon come back and tell the victim “we got it all.” The problem is that the surgery leaves her with painful, disfiguring, and dysfunctional lymphedema. It also increases your risk for infection. But that’s not all. A new study found that this draconian procedure makes no difference in survival or reoccurrence.
The study looked at 891 breast cancer patients. The researchers looked at survival rates of those who had their nodes removed (445 patients) and those who did not (446 patients). After six years, the researchers found almost no difference in the survival rates of both groups (91.8% to 92.5 percent respectively).
Based on this study, the New York Times said, “Experts say that the new findings, combined with similar ones from earlier studies, should change medical practice for many patients. Some centers have already acted on the new information … But more widespread change may take time, experts say, because the belief in removing nodes is so deeply ingrained.”
I agree. This barbarian “treatment” needs to disappear. But it’s not happening. It is “so deeply ingrained” that some states like California still mandate this surgery for treating cancer.
If you have breast cancer, please don’t allow your surgeon to do a radical lymph node dissection. If the cancer has made it to your lymph nodes, chances are quite high that it’s elsewhere, and the horrific lymph node dissection will likely do you no good in the long run.
I’m not against a sentinel node biopsy (single lymph node) for staging purposes, as it can give the doctor important information about your cancer without radical dissection. But tell your surgeon in writing that you don’t want the lymph nodes removed.
Yours for better health and medical freedom,
