Breast Lump – DCIS from KL
Hello Dr. Chris Teo,
My name is C. The reason why I’m writing this email to you is that my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer recently, so I would like to get some professional opinion from you. When I first found out that my wife had cancer, I decided to do some research on the internet about breast cancer. That’s how I found your website, and first of all, I would like to say thank you for your time and dedication with helping people with cancer. It’s very admirable.
So in my wife’s case, few weeks ago she felt that there’s something like a lump in her left breast. So we decided to go see a doctor and after doing the ultrasound the doctor suggested that my wife should have it surgically removed and sent it to lab for further testing. The report came out as DCIS. The doctor said that it’s still in a very early stage and it’s a non invasive cancer ,and she was given 3 options:
1. Go for surgery again and remove the surrounding tissue because during the first surgery the doctor didn’t know it was cancer yet so he only took out the affected tissue, so after the lab result came out, he’s concerned that the surrounding tissue might be affected as well. That’s why he suggested that she goes for surgery again and remove the surrounding tissue as well.
2. Radiotherapy which we declined on the spot after I went through some of the articles on your website. The doctor also mentioned that he’s not even sure how effective it is.
3.Do nothing and take the 50/50 chance.
So we took option 1 which at this time we think is the most effective and safest option. She will have the surgery this Friday. So do you think we made the right decision?
That was my first question and my second question is, we heard that porcupine date is very effective against cancer. Do you know anything about this Chinese medicine and how effective it is? This medicine is very expensive and I don’t know whether the medicine is suitable for my wife and I’m also concerned about what kind of side effects it might brings. Hope to hear your insight on this medicine.
My third and last question, I’m very interested in your herbal treatment program so I was wondering what would be the best time for us to come and pay you a visit? And hopefully get to know more about your herbal treatment. We have also taken your advise on diet, to avoid all meat and dairy product and also sugar. So most of the food we eat are now organics.
Hope to hear from you soon and thank you again for your time. I’ve also attached the pathology report in case you would like to take a look.
