Recent articles on breast cancer

Breast cancer continues to be one of the most common cancers in women and maintains a high profile both in the media and in women’s minds.
The first major surgical advances came in the 1970s when research showed there was the same survival rate for women who underwent breast preservation using lumpectomy (surgical removal of tumor[s] in the breast) and radiation, as there was for women who had a mastectomy (complete removal of the breast). This discovery, along with rapid developments in breast reconstruction, opened a whole new avenue of surgical options for women. By the early 2000s, the traditional axillary dissection (removal of about two-thirds of the lymph nodes in the armpit) was replaced by sentinal lymph node biopsy. By the late 2000s, advances in radiation therapy allowed surgeons to place specialized balloon devices at the time of lumpectomy surgery to deliver radiation treatments. The Affinity Medical Group general surgeons are always at the forefront of breast cancer surgery. At the Affinity Breast Center and cancer programs, we have a passion for breast cancer care, and we encourage women to come in and let us provide them with our top-notch service. Reishi Mushroom (Ganoderma lucidum and Ganoderma tsugae) РTraditional Chinese Medicine doctors have long used this variety as a tonic, it improves vitality, strength and stamina and prolongs life. Shiitake Mushroom (Lentinula edodes) Рthis mushroom is found in many Asian cuisines.
Maitake Mushroom (Grifola frondosa) – another immune stimulator, it is widely used in Japanese cooking.
Chaga Mushroom (Inonotus obliquus) – used as a medicinal mushroom in Russian and Eastern European traditional medicine.
Oyster Mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) – a potent antioxidant, oyster mushrooms also have antibacterial and immune boosting abilities. For more information on some specific tips on taking medicinal mushrooms, see my newer article.

For years, many women who have been expecting have been told by doctors, friends and family members to try bed rest. The study was conducted among 657 women who were pregnant and who had an increasingly diagnosed condition called a short cervix.

The Associated Press reports that it may be possible that the women who were prescribed bed rest simply had an elevated risk of having a premature birth, for reasons that the researchers had not uncovered.
Diarrhea Drug Overdose May Lead to Heart Problems: FDAOverdosing on the diarrhea drug Imodium to help stem opioid addiction can cause heart problems, the FDA said. While it is certainly a scary diagnosis, it is exciting how much progress has been made in the treatment of breast cancer in recent years.
No longer were women faced with a body-altering mastectomy as their only choice of treatment. This allows surgeons to remove only one or two lymph nodes from the armpit to test for cancer spread.
Called brachytherapy, this procedure allows radiation to be completed in as little as five days instead of the traditional six weeks. We provide carefully coordinated care with medical and radiation oncologists and plastic surgeons. Flanagan provides comprehensive general surgical services with special interest in advanced laparoscopic and endocrine, anti-reflux and breast surgery.

Some studies show that it can enhance the effects of chemotherapy and reduce the side effects of radiation treatments.
It has anti-tumor effects and also protects the kidneys from the side effects of chemotherapy.  It is one of the most widely used tonics in anti-cancer formulas in Chinese Medicine. Studies have shown that it is a powerful immune stimulant.  Maitake also protects cells with its antioxidant properties and decreases the inflammatory factor COX2 enzyme which is common in cancer physiology.
Chaga has been studied as a potential anti-cancer agent, it contains betulin, a precursor to betulinic acid, which has been shown to inhibit cancer-promoting enzymes.
In episode 3 of The Truth about Cancer one of the doctors said mushrooms were high in glutamine which promotes cancer growth. Because bed rest may not actually mean staying in bed all day, the women needed to answer questions about whether their doctors recommended that they restrict their movements. Of the women who were not told to cut back on their movements, 17 percent gave birth prematurely.
However, bed rest has side effects as well that may cause health problems - bone loss, blood clots and elevated stress levels. Tags: Affinity Breast Center, Affinity Medical Group, biopsy, brachytherapy, breast cancer, diagnosis, lumpectomy, mastectomy, radiation therapy, surgery.

Breast biopsies also started to become to become less invasive, as the need for an operating room procedure was steadily replaced by image-guided needle biopsies.
It is a much less painful procedure and reduces the risk of nerve injury and lymphedema (arm swelling). We were the first in the Fox Valley to offer image-guided stereotactic needle biopsies and sentinal lymph node biopsies. Always consult your physician or other qualified health care provider as soon as possible about any medical or health-related question and do not wait for a response from our experts before such consultation. You should not assume the information posted by community members is accurate and you should never disregard or delay seeking professional medical advice because of something you have read on this site. Shiitake is widely used in alternative and complementary treatment of cancer in Japan due to its immune-enhancing functions. Studies have also shown that Maitake has potential anti-metastatic properties inhibiting the proliferation and spread of cancer.
Now I’m confused as I thought mushrooms were anti- cancer immune building supplements. For years, doctors have known that bed rest may not actually lower this risk, but it was still seen as an intervention that could not hurt.
For example, some women were told to abstain from sex, some women were told to cut back or quit working altogether and some women were told to cut back on non-work activities. That link remained true even when researchers controlled for age, race, medical history and ultrasounds.
Lentinan, a compound found in Shiitake, is used as an intravenous anti-cancer drug with anti-tumor properties.
However, a recent study published in the journal Obstetrics and Gynecology has found that prescribing bed rest may actually hurt women and babies and can even double the risk of premature birth. Clinical studies have associated lentinan with a higher survival rate, higher quality of life and lower recurrence of cancer.
I found that episode of TTAC contradictory as one doctor said mushrooms should be avoided and another Russian doctor was promoting the Chaga mushroom for anti-cancer properties.
In total, Reuters reports that 39 percent of the 646 women who answered the questionnaires were put on some form of bed rest.
