I am almost a two year breast cancer survivor and would also like to try garcinia cambogia. I have gained a lot of weight since chemo put me in menopause and I started taking tamoxifen. I eat whole foods and excercise but nothing is helping me lose the weight and am very scared that the cancer will come back. I know that weight puts me at risk. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Need a breast surgeon regarding a new cancer in the same breast, where I had a lumpectomy eight years ago. Previous treatment included chemotherapy and radiation, followed by tamoxifen for two years only. I live in Victoria. This new cancer is very early stages (cells), not visible on an ultrasound but picked up on a yearly check up mammogram. Have had a static core biopsy under mammogram, bone scan and Ct scan. These tests confirmed that there is no nodal spread or metastatic disease. The biopsy report stated R breast lateral calls, core biopsies - high-grade ductal carcinoma in situ with comedonecrosis; one very tiny focus of infiltrating carcinoma (ER+, PR-, HER-2 2+) . Would like a second opinion on how to treat this new finding.

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.
