    Suggest treatment for metastatic breast cancer

The house that I m renting & have lived in for 8 years definitely has black mold throughout it, but the landlady will not do anything about it, doesn t maintain the house at all. I m a Metastatic Breast Cancer patient, too. Both me & my pet cats have been coughing a loose cough, sneezing, wheezing, etc. What diseases can black mold cause all of us?

moulds can cause allergies commonly. Also Moulds can cause lung infection and blood stream infections. These are more common in immunocompromised individuals like those on chemotherapy. If you are on chemotherapy, a hygienic environment needs to be maintained.
