Campaigners say lives could be lost unnecessarily if plans are implemented to withdraw a cancer drug from patients who do not show a quick benefit.
Glivec has produced promising results as a treatment for gastrointestinal stromal tumours.

But in a draft proposal, the National Institute for Clinical Excellence suggests treatment should be stopped if results are not produced in 12 weeks.

NICE says a consultation exercise on the use of Glivec is still in progress.

ALSO

Male Breast Cancer more common

More men are developing breast cancer - but most fail to spot tumours until they are at an advanced stage, a study has warned.
University of Texas research found that, while men are far less likely to develop breast tumours than women, the numbers are increasing.

Writing in an online edition of the journal Cancer, they warn men seem to be unaware they can develop the cancer.

UK experts said the cancer was rare, but men should be aware of changes.

Just under half of men in the UK admit they would put off going to the doctor if they developed warning signs of cancer, a survey has found.

The Cancer Research UK survey found only 52% would immediately go to the GP if they found blood in their stool - a common sign of bowel cancer.

Younger men cited embarrassment as the reason for the delay, while older men were worried about what might be found.

Other experts called for better monitoring of prostate cancer risk.

'I could have died of stubbornness'

Rob Hall, from east London waited 18 months before seeking medical help after noticing a lump on his right testicle.

He said nothing to family or friends - or even his GP - about his symptoms.

During this time, his lump grew bigger and harder.

Rob, 30, from east London admits he was the classic example of a man refusing to confront cancer in the hope "that it would just go away".

Some more info on Male cancers:

Everyman

Everyman is a organisation dealing with information and funding research to cross out male cancer.

They do a lot of work with specialists in the fields of Testicular Cancer as well and Male Breast Cancer and a few others.

The site is loaded with information and more links to other sources...well worth a look.

A new piece of US research backs the idea that aspirin protects against certain types of breast cancer.
It found women who used aspirin or similar painkillers at least once per week for six months reduced their risk of breast cancer by 20%.

However, the University of Columbia researchers say it is too soon to advise women to start taking aspirin against breast cancer, however.

Their findings appear in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Previous studies have suggested aspirin may protect against a range of cancers, including breast, colon and bowel.

Dr Mary Beth Terry and colleagues looked at almost 1,500 women with breast cancer and a similar number of healthy women acting as controls.

Regularly eating soya-rich foods cuts a woman's womb cancer risk, say experts.

A study of 1,700 women by the Shanghai Cancer Institute suggested the more soya they ate, the lower their chance of developing the cancer.

Soya contains isoflavones, plant-based chemicals that mimic the effects of oestrogen in the body, the research in the British Medical Journal says.

Having a diet rich in soya has previously been said to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.

It has also been suggested the chemical's oestrogen effects could be beneficial in fighting heart disease and cancer.

How to fine tune cancer prognosis

Doctors can more accurately predict outcomes for cancer patients if they have information on other illnesses the patient may have, say scientists.
They believe data about patients' non-cancer ailments should be included in cancer statistics.

This would improve the validity of research into cancer and the accuracy of survival estimates, they say.

The Washington University team report their findings in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

At present, trial data used by cancer specialists tends to focus on tumour size and aggressiveness.

Dr Jay Piccirillo and colleagues say adding information on patients' non-cancer ailments, called comorbidities, improves the accuracy of trial data.

Women in Britain with breast cancer could benefit from a technique reducing some side effects of surgery.
Currently, when a doctor thinks the cancer could spread, glands under the arm are removed, as well as the tumour.

But research co-ordinated by Cardiff scientists suggests it is unnecessary in two-thirds of cases and they have developed a less drastic treatment.

The procedure could be more widely available throughout the UK within 18 months.

Removing the lymph nodes from under the arm is a painful procedure which can result in loss of movement.

Research carried out over three years across England and Wales found that by removing just one gland from under the arm, specialists can tell whether the cancer has spread.

Using a small dose of radioactivity, doctors are able to locate the main gland - called the sentinel node - that drains directly from the tumour.

New Hope

This is good news indeed...havin had a friend go through this procedure a few months back she was in agony.

My father lost his battle with cancer in Febuary. It didn't take the cancer long to take him over and run him in to the ground. He was diagnosed in November and was told he had only a few months to live. After that, the doctor gave him some radiation which had some results, but not enough I guess, By Dec he was home with hospice care and passed away 2 short months later.

To me it seemed that the doctor pretty much sent him home to die. He showed little interest in the whole situation. He was hard to communicate with and was horrible at returning calls and such. I tried to discuss his situation with the doctor but he showed no interest in talking to me since I was only his son. I tried to pursuade my folks to switch doctors, but nope. My mom figured that since a doctor says so...it must be true. It's sad really.

These people get #ing rich off our sicknesses. If a cure were found, they would no longer have a means to milk people and insurance companies for everything they are worth. I trust the Med industry about as much as I trust our leaders. It's aint about the greater good for your fellow humans...it's about $$$.

And, Bush is trying to protect these people from lawsuits.

If I'm ever diagnosed with anything of the sort, I'll either seek alternative medicine or let it kill me rather than let them milk me. I hate doctors and hospitals anyway.

Sorry for the rant!

Is all Cancer Research a Giant Fraud?

A relation of mine has terminal cancer and I've been searching the net to read up on this as much as possible.

I came across this article which suggests that all major Cancer Research organisations are fraudulent and exist to perpetuate the power and profits of the giant pharmaceutical companies.

www.pnc.com.au...

Also:

www.whale.to...

Controversial? What do members think?

In the case of my relative, the UK Cancer Research organisation has proved less than helpful or forthcoming.

(Apologies if this, or part of it has been discussed before, I couldn't find anything on this using the site search engine)

I don't think so. From the days cancer was descovered, huge progress was made in finding a cure, and I think that today most of the people whohave cancer actually survive.

There is Radiation, Chemotherapy, advanced scanners for detecting tumors (MRI for example), and many medial experiments on cancer patients in order to find a cure.

I know that here in Israel, cancer organizations help patients a lot, especially children.

BTW, about a month ago Israeli snientists demonstrated a DNA computer that can detect and eliminate cancer cells, and development will go on untill it will be able to operate in regular enviorment (human body). I believe that in 20 years we will be able to cure completely all kind of cancer, with the use of biotech and nanotech (for example by injection of thousands of those cumpters into the body).

Im sure it is. I believe that the cure for cancer was found in Armenia about 15 years ago. It was bought out for 3 billion dollars. Since Armenia is a poor country they accepted. They also signed a contract saying that they will never work on it again. I dont who bought out the formula or the vaccine. Nor do i have a link.

It all depends on what type of cancer one is talking about. You can't say we have no cure for cancer, when it fact we have cures for certain types of it.

Highly doubt it...If someones found a cure for cancer....they could make oddles more then 3 billion...doesnt sound very probable....

I honestly think they supress the effective treatments.
I just watched my father die from cancer back in Feb. His doctor didn't seem to give a #. I tried to discuss these things with him and all I got was "cant discuss" it from him.

By the way......dont send anyone you care about to Mary Washington Hospital. They always seem to come out of that hospoital in worse shape than when they went in. A bunch of Amatures.

All the wonderfull things that mankind can do these days, like almost every organ transplant, Nano-tech, putting man in space, building bombs and other weapons that can whipe out man kind......but we can't cure cancer or Aids?

Bull#! It's all about money. Why is Majic Johnson still alive and kicking? Money, thats why. Did he magicly get cured when all the other aids victims wither away in to a painfull death?

I guarentee if Bush or any of his got AIDS or Terminal Cancer, they would come out with a cure real fast.

I guess I am still sore and pissed off about loosing my father at the age of 63. I think there was more that could have been done for him. One of those was apparently out of the question because of legalities.

I trust conventional medicine about as much as I trust the Govt. Afterall the gov controlls the Medical industry thru the FDA and and other gov agencies.

It's all about the $$$$$$$$$$ not about the people.

Yes, it's much the same in the UK.

My relative went to the doctor with severe headaches, blurred vision on several occasions, and he was told that it was nothing to worry about.

While on holiday he lost all co-ordination and was rushed to hospital and diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Since being repatriated they have established that this is a secondary cancer to a lung cancer (although they can't tell what type of cancer this is).

He has had numerous scans, etc, since to 'monitor progress' but doesn't seem to have received ANY treatment apart from steroids - not chemo, radiotherapy or surgery due to the location of the tumours.

It really is as if they have completely washed their hands of him and are letting him die. It makes me absolutely furious. I appreciate he's terminally ill, but you'd think they'd try??

Never get ill in the UK. We may have a free NHS but its only of use if your condition is easy and relatively low budget to cure.

Thanks to Gryffen for the very helpful links, they will help enormously with my research.
