Very , very good answer. There is no miracle cure . The only advice to take is from an oncologist and a specialist. Period.

Oh, and stage one is akin to being french fries to a sack of potatoes. So don't drag too crazy over it.

And no matte how bad it gets dont make her experience with you be a drag. You gotta be the beacon of joy.

I don't have any advice only offer support.

Cervical cancer affects mainly women 50s and under and there are studies indicating a link to sisters and daughters so if you have sisters and/or aunts, advising them to get pap smears regularly may be in order.

So many have been touched in one way or another by that monster that is cancer, be it by immediate family, degrees of separation or themselves it can be a very scary diagnosis especially if one is not knowledgeable about it and/or the treatments available.

I would suggest that time is of the essence (although generally speaking, I believe, it can be a slow progressing type of cancer) and that your mother follow the oncologist's advice to the letter. I would suggest that you research and study.

Also there will be an increased risk of your mother developing another cancer after this so if lifestyle changes are in order, this is the time to start thinking about those things as well and she will need your support for not only the treatments (great strides in modern medicine so if it's been caught early enough the prognosis is likely going to be good, IMO) but, for any lifestyle changes that need to come.

Good luck to your mother and strength for both of you.
Please keep in touch and let us know how you are both doing.

A good oncologist is a must definitely worth seeking out one specialising in ovarian cancer as they'll be aware of the most progressive treatment pathways available locally. Accurate diagnosis is just as important as treatment route.
Catching it early is really important, metastasis where cancer cells break away and spreading through the lymphatic system makes treatment more difficult. You could ask the oncologist about a PET scan these are often really good at detecting if the cancer has spread elsewhere. Most scans use 18FDG however there are other tracers out there that are very specific with respect to cancer type, slower growing less aggressive cancers can be more difficult to detect as the cell metabolism rates are lower - they don't take up the tracers as easily.
Diet is important, not sure where I stand on all the theories over pH and carbs the key for me would be fresh, balanced and avoid processed foods. Give your body the energy it needs to keep it healthy and strong throughout the course of treatment. All chemo drugs are pretty much nasty poisons and will really take it out of you. Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) are being developed which modify your own cells to specifically attack the cancer are under development and offer a potential alternative although difficult to access.
Main thing to hold onto though is diagnosed in stage 1 is a good thing in terms of prognosis.
Good luck to you both and stay bright.

Fukushima, Bikini Atol..? Humans pumping # into oceans....Just a few possibilities i'm throwing out there.

Even ones found no where near any of these places? I didn't realise that Fukushima spilt GMO's and sugar into the ocean?

How about cancer from 1.7 million years ago then?

Not trying to have an argument here, was trying to dissuade the op from going down the quackery route.

So I got the terrible news today. I am quite beside myself at the moment. Trying to feel positive about the surgical intervention scheduled for her in a couple weeks.

I love her dearly, and I am hopeful she will heal and be cured. However, I am requesting anyone with health information about dealing with this hard issue. If anyone has natural foods and other helpful treatments that would be greatly appreciated.

I studied some things but every cancer is different but all have commonalities when it comes to helpful prevention.

Advice or counsel would be kindly appreciated. Thank you.

Back in June 2016 I was diagnosed with cancer. The MRT revealed a tumor near my left kidney and one attached to my pancreas..... it did not look good. Doctor told me I had to make a decision and it best be quick because Metastasis has not yet set in. You see once Metastasis "sets in" you are possibly looking at end cycle and last stage. So it is important to have surgery as soon as possible before Metastasis "sets in"

I had my surgery back in July 2016 and I am still recovering. My surgery was 6 hours long and since I was a diabetic it matters worse. I am a bleeder so bags of blood were needed. So any good news to report?

YES

I AM CANCER FREE.

They were able to remove both tumors.

Have the surgery ASAP. Do NOT make any further delays...

Stay strong.

My mother was diagnosed with uterine cancer about 4 years ago. She had a hysterectomy and was fine for about a year. Then it came back again, they treated it with radiation. The third time it came back, they said it had metastasized all over her body and they'd have to do chemo.

Granted, my mother had a weak immune system to begin with (Chronic Fatigue Immune Dysfunction) but as soon as the chemo started, she rapidly deteriorated, dying early last year—less than three months after treatments began. I am convinced it was the chemo that killed her. Who knows how long she would have had if she had opted not to do chemo?

OP, please make sure she gets proper professional advice and medical treatment. Please don't listen to posters who tell you to forgo medical treatment in favour of eating some herbs or whatever. If you *do* wish to try out complementary therapies, make sure you keep your oncologist in the loop so it can be monitored and ensure it won't interfere with the medical treatment.

My wife had that. They did a leep on her cervix and she has been clean for almost 20 years now. Good luck man.

My mother was diagnosed with the same in the 1970's.

Had a total hysterectomy.

She'll be 80 next year.



Chin up! Listen to the doctors, always get a second or even a third opinion.

Will think positive thoughts for your family.

Cervical cancer, caught early (i.e. stage 1) is easily treatable and prognosis is excellent. Usually they wouldn't go to a full hysterectomy, but if she's not having any more babies, it doesn't matter much.

Typically cancerous or precancerous lesions form at the transition zone between squamous and columnar cells, and are excised using a cryogenic probe or electrosurgery (a tungsten wire loop for cutting and cauterizing.) Very little pain / recovery. Even hysterectomies are usually done with minimal cutting these days.

Either way, once the offending tissues have been removed, the cancer is gone. This isn't like a blood cancer where its moved throughout the body or difficult to catch it all.

It's a good thing your mom goes for her exams - in many parts of the world, women don't have regular screenings, and cervical cancer isn't detected until it's too late.

In short, your mom should be 100% fine in no time. Prognosis is excellent. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Stage 1 is the beginning. If it's caught early enough, it's completely treatable. Advancements have been rolling in at a rapid pace in this field. She has an excellent chance of having this be just a speed bump. Keep a positive attitude, keep her 100% into the idea that she can and will beat it, and don't worry. Worrying about something you can't change is pointless. Stay positive. The body is capable of amazing things when the mind is strong.

My mother-in-law is cancer free after two bouts of Ovarian cancer 22 years ago. She is a strong woman who refused to let this beat her.


ETA: and she hated the idea of pills, so when it came to supplementing her lost vitamins and such, she changed her diet to liver and onions twice a day, every day. It kept her iron levels up and also kept her from having to take some extra pills. (see what I mean about strong?) To this day, she can't eat liver and onions anymore. And I don't blame her a bit.

Do keep in mind that the more junk food, or processed food a person eats, the worse off the immune system is going to be. That's a big part of the "don't eat sugar" thing. Sugar is inflammatory, and causes all sorts of problems when we eat too much of it. With any illness, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, high blood pressure- people eating sugars and junk food, are going to be worse off.
Especially anyone that has to go through chemotherapy or other treatments- they really have to eat healthy and avoid toxic and inflammatory foods, and eat proper real foods.
Shouldn't need a link for this advice, it's common sense.

My mum had it 30 years ago. She had a full hysterectomy (ovaries removed). They thought she may have to have chemo but fortunately it hadnt spread to lymph nodes so she didnt have chemo. She had to go for smears for 5 years they left a tiny bit of her cervix. After 5 years she was given the aĺl clear. She is now 89.

Mý sisters and I were out of our minds like you and reading lots of scary stuff in books so I know what you are going through. Hopefully your mum will be fine too. Try to stay positive. She will need your strenth after the hysterectomy. Sending love and prayers x

Edit: my mum had a much higher grade as well. I think it was grade IV but not definite on that however, it was the worst it could be.a reply to: Skywatcher2011
