Good morning, in Sept. 2017 I was diagnosed with breast

Good morning,
in Sept. 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, two tumors totaling 2.5 centimeters, estrogen and progesterone sensitive, by July this year the tumors had reduced in size by a third. I declined radiation and chemotherapy and chose instead to use cbd oil and essiac tea and sea cucumber . On the 13th of July I had the remainder of the tumors surgically removed. My question is does the above information have anything to do with the black patches and white patches under my fingernails?

Hi my question is I was diagnosed with papillary breast cancer. I had lumpectomy and sentinel node removal. my surgeon said he was able to get it all. I had a good path report. the lesion was 2.5 mm and no node involement. The cancer was insitu. The surgeon said he did not feel I needed further treatment. However i got second opinion from an oncologist and he placed me on tomoxifin and the radiation oncologist suggested I do a round of radiation therapy as adjunvant therapy. Should I listen to the surgeon and be done or do I need radiation therapy for such a small tumor?

I was diagnosed with breast cancer which was Her2 pos. Had op to remove two small lumps, one 9 mm the other approx 4 mm. Followed by 6 sessions of chemo, then 15 radiation, then 17 herceptin injections, one every three weeks nd now ant hormone tablets for five years and regular checkups. Still worry about recurrence because of the her2 pos diagnosis. How do you think my prognosis is. Doctors here in dk say quite good I am 72 yrs old, quite active.

Hello Dr Thakwani, My mother was diagnosed to have breast cancer (Right- mucous carcinoma), the FNAC suggested. When consulted with the surgical oncologist, he suggested to get total mastectomy with axillary dissection. A PET-CT scan was done at 5:30AM in the morning & an operation was carried out at 4PM same day (I m not sure if this is right, getting the reports & operation on the same day). The PET-CT scan report says Mutiple poorly enhacing soft tissue densities in the upper & inner quadrant of right breast, a few small right axillary nodes not significant by size criteria & no distant metastases . Bone scan report says No evidence of skeletal metastases. Histopathology report says Multifocal mucinous carcinoma grade 1 of right breast, base of resection is free of tumour, all 18 axillary lymph nodes are free of tumor, ER-Positive, PgR- Positive, Her-2/neu - Negative The fuild (serum) comming out from the operated region post operation was heavy 350ml,300ml...on the 5th, 6th, 7th day of post operation it was 220,200,180ml respectively. we were very much concerned about this but the doctor assertained that there was nothing to worry. My mom was refer to another medical oncologist by the surgical oncologist after 1month of operation to consult on whether to go for chemotherapy or harmone therapy My mom had no other illness, diabeties, BP except that had hypothyroidism for which she was taking thyroid tablets early in the morning before breakfast and varicose vein. Her age being 56yrs. The medical oncologist suggested her to take 4 cycles of chemotherapy & later take harmone therapy. But just after 3 days of the first chemotherapy my mom passed away with breathlessness & low-BP. Please explain me the cause, since except for the threatment she was hail & healthy & within one month of diagnosis of breast cancer & threatment we had to lose her & it has disturbed us soo much that we are still in a state of shock
