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.

I visited the doctor last week with very bad piles after a week of watery stools and she prescribed a steroid crème and some suppositories. The day after I woke with severe burning inside the cheeks of my bottom and perineum. I stopped using the crème and my daughter got me some metainium. She took over the cleaning and applying the salve and was alarmed at the mess I was in.. I contacted the gp again friday who prescribed different suppositories, trimodine and metanium which have been very little help. Friday night I woke with unbearable itching all over my body, and this has continued unabated and is driving me out of my mind. I cant wait for morning when I will try and see my gp, though I doubt it because I cannot walk, and feel violently sick when I stand up to go to the loo. I had breast cancer in 88 and suffer blood pressure, angina, arthritis and pernicious anaemia. help me please.
