Coming in late here...

Thanks for that mention of the lack of Blood:Brain Barrier in the sinuses.  Just think of how close they are to the brain!  Also, that is a sad story about your friend, Yowbarb, but we who are interested in wholistic/holistic health and medicine know how difficult it is for mainstream-oriented people to open their eyes to other possibilities.

My dear childhood friend, Patty, recently had breast cancer.  She and I recently re-hooked up via email after many decades apart and have discovered so much in common--probably more now than before, including interest in herbs and holistic modalities.

Her doctor told her she had breast cancer, and she informed him she wanted to try some herbal/alternative things.  Then at her next visit he said "you have three types of cancer, and they are growing very fast, and you have to have chemo and radiation, or they will continue to grow fast and kill you quickcly" or something pretty much like that.  So he did scare her to death, and she did go through with all of it, but I tried to get her to obtain a copy of the pathology report which will spell out in detail the type(s) of cancer(s) by name, and their extent of invasion, if any.  I do not know if she ever did ask, but she never did get a copy. 

My own intuition is that she may, or may not have had "a lot" of cancer, but when he heard she wanted to use herbs first, he went into high gear to scare the crap out of her.  They detail how doctors do this in that Truth About Cancer series on cancer treatments, etc.  Of course, they also show how the urgency that doctors instill in patients is not based on reality, plus when they hear patients want to go holistic, they react in the way we can all imagine.

And am sorry to hear of the loss of your friend, as it hits home, knowing Patty all these years.  We climbed trees together!

Hi ilinda...how touching to hear about how you reconnected with Patty. That is what happened with my friend Edie...  I know I should have tried harder to help my friend... she was proud stubborn...
Did Patty eventually get a clean bill of health with the cancer? Is she in the land of the living?

15 Amazing benefits of cranberry juice

Antitumor Effects
The anti-tumor efficacy offered by cranberry juice is attributed to the presence of polyphenolic compounds within the fruit. Studies have suggested that regular consumption of cranberry juice inhibits the development and spread of lung, breast, colon, prostate, and other cancers. Cranberry juice contains a high amount of salicylic acid which can help reduce swelling, prevent blood clots, and eliminate tumors.

Yes, Patty is still alive and a bit more aware now.  It sounds like no matter how hard anyone would have tried, your friend Edie was no doubt convinced that the medical establishment knows what's best and anyone who would use herbs or other methods, must be totally insane.

The door of awareness opens very slowly for some, and for others, it just gets burst open and never closes.  Unfortunately, Patty wants to take all herbs in pill form, or at least it seems that way.  She had watched some of the The Truth About Cancer videos I sent her and saw that part about frankincense essential oil, so she decided to use it.  But instead of buying just the essential oil, she bought some pill or other conconction that contained a bunch of things, one of which was frankincense oil.

But that mixture is not what was helping the patients described in the video.  I don't want to get pushy, but would love to drop the hint that maybe some of those other ingredients might not be the best for helping deal with cancer.  But I'm trying to refrain from unsolicited advice.  But if she asks, I'll have plenty to say.  I certainly wish her well.

Is it lung cancer? This blood test can tell
Published   Thursday 19 April 2018 By Maria Cohut   Fact checked by Jasmin Collier

Some cancers — particularly lung cancer — are often detected incidentally, after unrelated medical exams. In many cases, it is difficult to tell the malign from benign tumors, except by using invasive methods such as a biopsy. However, one blood test that can rule out cancer may be the game-changer that we require.

Recent data indicate that currently, in the United States, around 1.6 million pulmonary nodules per year are detected that require further testing to ascertain whether they are cancerous.

Biopsies are invasive. And, often, healthcare practitioners will advise even more invasive solutions, such as surgery, to remove the nodules and the patient's doubts.

For such sensitive, fragile organs as the lungs, however, an invasive method brings with it a whole set of risks that can potentially make matters worse.

Dr. Gerard Silvestri, of the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, led a study to explore a noninvasive method of determining whether lung nodules are benign or malign. He explains why this research is important.

"Think of your lung as a 2-liter bottle of soda, and the nodule as a pea in the center of it," notes Dr. Silvestri. "During a biopsy, for example, the lung could collapse and need a tube to expand it," he explains.

That is why he and a team of researchers have explored the merits of a blood test focusing on the presence of biomarkers that would indicate how likely it is that the detected nodules are cancerous.

"Our goals for this biomarker are to help calculate the risk of cancer, present the patient with options and recommendations, and avoid subjecting patients with benign disease to expensive, unnecessary, and intrusive procedures."

Dr. Gerard Silvestri
The results of their research have now been published in the journal Chest.

Test demonstrates accuracy of 98 percent

Dr. Silvestri and team's research is part of the Pulmonary Nodule Plasma Proteomic Classifier study, which the study authors call "a prospective, multicenter, observational study" that retrospectively evaluates the effectiveness of a specially designed blood test that can evaluate "two [telling] proteins and five clinical risk factors" for lung cancer.

The blood test's purpose is to determine whether patients with lung nodules who have a low or moderate risk of lung cancer are likely to have developed harmless or malign tumors.

The main biomarkers that the test assesses are the proteins LG3BP and C163A, the plasma concentrations of which predicts this type of cancer.

If the test results are negative and the person being tested has a lung cancer chance of under 50 percent, the possibility of cancer is very reduced. In this case, healthcare practitioners can devise an appropriate treatment plan and follow-up routine.

"It serves as a 'rule out' test for those with low to moderate risk," Dr. Silvestri says of the blood test.

"The biomarker is a tool," he continues, "to help calculate the general risk of cancer and present a patient with recommendations and options. It can push people out of indeterminate risk and into low-risk — without having to undergo invasive and potential risky procedures."

The results of the current study indicated that the blood test was 98 percent effective in ruling out the possibility of lung cancer.

For added certainty, however, patients with negative results — and thus with a low likelihood of malign tumors — would still be monitored periodically to make sure that no errors were made.

"A low-risk tumor," Dr. Silvestri goes on to say, "will be followed with serial imaging. After 2 years of [computed tomography] scans being performed periodically and without evidence of growth, we can say it's benign."

For this study, the researchers retrospectively evaluated the data of 685 clinical trial participants of 40 years or older, all of whom presented newly detected lung nodules at baseline.

The specialists suggest that, had the blood test they studied been used to inform patient care, 40 percent fewer invasive procedures would have taken place in the case of people with harmless nodules.

Taking this into account, Dr. Silvestri and colleagues say that the next step from here should be to conduct a "clinical utility study to assess how clinical decision-making and use of invasive procedures are altered with knowledge of the results of [the recently studied] test."

"Anything to provide physicians with more confidence in how they would manage patients would be helpful," concludes Dr. Silvestri.

Yowbarb Note: The wormwood, (Artimisia annua) has some potentially really important uses for people in the coming times. There are some posts about it in the Topic, Disease Outbreaks. For the purposes of this post, I will only post the excerpts about its POSSIBLE ANTI CANCER PROPERTIES.
...
https://www.mskcc.org/cancer-care/integrative-medicine/herbs/artemisia-annua

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

Do NOT take if:
You are taking antiseizure medications: Artemisia can induce seizures making such medications less effective.

To treat cancer:
Laboratory studies have shown some effect. Human data are lacking.


Mechanism of Action
Artemisinin, the active constituent of A. annua, exerts antimalarial effects by free radicals formed via cleavage of the endoperoxide bond in its structure, which are responsible for eradicating the Plasmodium species (23).

Artemisinin induces apoptosis and cell cycle arrest of Leishmani donovani promastigotes. It has antiproliferative effects on medullary thyroid carcinoma cells (2), and induces apoptosis in a lung cancer cell line by modulating p 38 and calcium signaling (14). In another study, it significantly inhibited cell growth and proliferation, and caused G1 cell-cycle arrest in neuroblastoma cell lines (25). Dihydroartemisinin, a semi-synthetic derivative of artemisinin, demonstrates anti-inflammatory activity by attenuating COX-2 production via downregulation of serine/threonine kinase (AKT) and mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways  (24). Recent findings suggest that dihydroartemisinin-triggered apoptosis in colorectal cells occurs through the reactive oxygen species (ROS)-mediated mitochondria-dependent pathway (26).

Artemisia annua is an herb traditionally used in Chinese medicine to treat fever, inflammation, and malaria. A compound in artemisia was shown to be effective in treating malaria in a clinical trial. Another case study showed that artemisia was effective in treating chronic bladder infection. Other studies suggest it may be helpful for osteoarthritis.
Artemisia prevented cancer cells from dividing in laboratory studies but clinical trials have not been conducted to support this.
