Solid Nodules on the Left Breast
The good news is all of Nanay’s test results except the Breast Ultrasound shows No Evidence of Disease (NED). There is no progression in any of the vital organs. The Liver Function Test only showed that she have a slightly elevated platelet count (PLT)= 478 (ideal range is 140-460), but does not require any treatment or intervention. The not so good news is– the attending oncologist found several small solid nodules in Nanay’s left breast, which are undetermined if benign or malignant. Nanay declined Chest Xray and Mammogram due to the low dose radiation from these diagnostic tests. Oncologist # 3 asked us to go back to her original surgeon to talk about the nodules on the left breast and also to see oncologist #1 (the original medical oncologist) for follow-up every 3- 6 months and for long-term monitoring, as it is better to be monitored by the original medical team where Nanay had her surgery.
Nanay said she wants to go for another 42 day juice fast (Breuss protocol with coffee enema and turmeric tea) or anything to shrink the tumouor before going for another mammogram or ultrasound with elastography.
I will schedule Mammogram and Breast Ultrasound with Elastography in either of the following, to prevent unnecessary biopsies:
Pacific Healthcare Breast Surgery Centre
Breast Centre@ Changi Hospital
She is quite determined not to have more surgery or chemo/radiation and will go back to her 42 day Breuss Protocol. I will still bring her for the breast elastography to ensure that it is a benign nodule and told her she must agree to be seen by the oncologist and surgeon every 3 to 6 months.
There is also a small (3 cm) fibroid in her uterus. I googled it and it seems this is not something we should worry about, as fibroids are benign tumours (also caused by estrogen dominance). I would still schedule an appointment with an OB-Gynae at Camden Medical Center who practices integrative medicine (referred to me by another breast cancer patient), for proper monitoring of the fibroid in her uterus.
