Lymphoma 3 Months Into Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer?

Question by A: Lymphoma 3 months into chemotherapy for breast cancer?
My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2012. They immediately did a mastectomy and started chemo. They told her it was a stage 2, so the prognosis was good. But now three months into her chemo treatments, she’s been diagnosed with lymphoma? How can she get another cancer when she’s being treated with drugs to kill cancer? I have no experience with cancer so I don’t know if this is common or not. Is it treatable? What is the prognosis?

Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins:
1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are
unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumours.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

I’m very sorry about your mother.

There are over 200 different cancers and over 100 chemotherapy treatments. Not every cancer responds to various treatments the same way.

It’s possible that your mother was misdiagnosed with breast cancer when she actually had lymphoma of the breast.

PLEASE do not listen to the quack artists who have answered your question. Johns Hopkins did NOT put out such a report and they deny all of the claims within. Please read their rebuttal here:

High doses of vitamin C do NOT cure cancer, neither does quercetin.

Alternative treatments prey on the vulnerability of those struggling with new diagnoses, etc. Ignore them and stick with conventional science. It’s not perfect, but it has a much higher success rate that the quacks.
