Ovarian cancer, parkinsonism, diabetic. Done surgery for cancer, advised chemo. Timeline for cancer, inherited disease?

I am inquiring information on Ovarian Cancer for my paternal grandmother. She is 73 years of age and was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer in July 2012 at the age of 72. She has advanced Parkinson's Disease and is borderline diabetic, as well. She had a partial hysterectomy in 1971-ish, leaving her ovaries. She was complaining about her left hip hurting really bad, slight back pain, had trouble with her kidneys (constant infections) and constipation (far back as I can remember and I am 32). They completed an abdomin ultrasound and located a "mass" within lower stomach. We were sent to an oncologist. He recommended surgery, asap. She had surgery. At that time, we were told that the "mass" was indeed her right ovary, in which was approximately the size of a grapefruit. Upon surgery completion, the oncologist stated the cancer had spread through the walls of both ovaries and spidered out onto her intestines. He stated he cleaned up everything that he could see at that time and recommended chemo. She refused chemo and states she doesn't want to know anymore. She refused to go back to the oncologist since that time. What is the normal timeline for Ovarian cancer of this magnitude. I never received a stage level or anything from the oncologist. My maternal grandmother died approximately 2 weeks before I was born from Ovarian Cancer, so I never got the chance to meet her. I am 32 years of age, do not have children and have endometriosis. Am I subject to getting this horrible disease, as well?

Homeopath 's  Response
Hello friend,
The tendency to form tumours is a genetic one. Most of the time this tendency will remain dormant as long as a conflict in the mind excites the development of such things. This is a brain mediated activity. Actually by forming tumours, body is resolving the problem and trying to protect the individual from further dangers. Every disease has to be taken not as enemies of us but attempts of the body to help us. But the icon of cancer is very deep rooted in the society as connected with death. So immediately as one gets a tumour, he or she becomes panicky. This myth is there in your mind also. This is evident from your question. You have qualified it as horrible disease. Once you start investigations to diagnose cancer, the individual starts dying. When the result of the investigations come, he or she will be almost nearing death. This is what happens in the case of cancers.
I am a Homoeopath having 35 years of clinical experience. I have helped many Cancer patients to survive longer periods with Homoeopathic treatments. So my advise is to consult, for your grandmother and for you also, an expert Homoeopath and he can help both of you. Endo metriosis also can be cured through Homoeopathy. But a detailed case taking is a must in the case of both of you.
With best wishes for better health through Homoeopathy,
Dr. C. J. Varghese
