Well, I got the diagnostics nobody wants: I have cancer. I know it could be worse, but it is like being sucker-punched. I had no idea.

I am wondering if anyone here on the board has gone through this.

Thanks.

My mother was once married to a guy who had this. Apparently it is one of the more treatable forms of cancer. He had his removed, and had to take thyroid pills. Happened to him in his mid 20's. But he was fine.

I strongly recommend the book World Without Cancer also. It's a book I've read multiple times, and recommend to many people.

Sorry to hear that Bret. Never been the full C, just a "benign", but aggressive tumor.

All I can say is knowledge is power. And don't be afraid to explore other medical opinions, if they're available to you.

Where are you located?

My prayers and best wishes go out to you.

Best Regards,
Scott

Sorry to hear that and I wish you all the best. I had testicular cancer in my mid twenties and it was pretty devastating. I was in bad shape for a while, I went down to about 140 pounds at 6 feet tall during my treatment. However, I am still going strong at 50 years old and have enjoyed over 20 years of good health, I have been lucky.

This was identified a year ago when I was 41. My Dr had me do a blood test and found out I had high calcium. 3 more tests confirmed high calcium levels. This brought me into a sonogram on my neck, which found the nodule on my thyroid and a swollen gland. Then a needle biopsy last week confirmed the cancer.

My advice to everyone is to get your yearly checkups. I never would have known.

I am going to be fine. I will recover and I will come back stronger than I am now, and will be better on the basketball court.

As I get older, I really have valued what Dr Darden has written about in his books. 2-3 good workouts a week have really been a positive experience for me.

As it turns out, the author of World Without Cancer has an hour video on youtube. going into why nitrilosides/laetrile in wild grasses, apricot kernels, etc. are such strong cancer fighters. Much more so than probably any other natural cancer fighter you may have heard of. Of course the mainstream says this is "quackery"....but I'm certain it is FACT. And I'm a guy who thinks 99% of "alternative" medicine and cancer treatments are indeed bullcrap. But I sure as heck take my daily dose of this substance as a prophylactic against ever getting cancer. And I say that as an anti-supplement guy.

Here's the video...it's a life changer!

Although I should quickly add that I do NOT agree with the author of World Without Cancer in regards to his advocacy of vegetarian diets. I'm low-carb/paleo all the way. And worth noting that very low carb ketogenic diets are showing great promise as being very helpful adjuncts to cancer treatment programs. Especially for brain cancers.

I'm 62 and several years ago I was diagnosed with colon cancer. Stage 2 ish. They cut out a big chunk of my colon and I did the routine chemo therapy. I continued to work 4 days a week and while I would get nauseous and feel sick quite often I still functioned well enough to do my daily duties. I worked out a little while on chemo. Supposedly they say its gone now but you never know. My best friend who was about 8 years younger than me was diagnosed with colon cancer just like mine but he was stage 3. It had spread a little. He went through the same routine chemo and they said it was all gone. 7 years later it came back in the form of stage 4 cancer, just about everywhere in his body and he was routinely checked 2 or 3 times a year. He just died 2 weeks ago. You just never know with this stuff.
I've been trying ever since to catch up to where I was before the cancer with my lifting but it's a long up hill climb and I never seem to be able to get back. Of course getting older factors into that as well.Years ago I used to do triathlons etc and prided myself on my endurance. Yesterday we were walking the dog in the snowy woods for a few miles and I had to stop and take breaks just walking up the mildly steep hills. Don't get old, it's no fun, ha ha.
The chemo kills cancer cells but it also kills other good cells as well. I never was the brightest bulb in the lot but it seems like some things just don't function as bright as they used to, especially in the noggin. Gee, what day is it?? You just have to learn to live with what you still have and move on and hope like hell that it doesn't come back.

Novodalin is the brand-name I take. I get it from TJ Natural Products. I believe it is shipped from Mexico. Legally of course. I take the 100mg pills once a day.

I really prefer to get nutrients from FOOD, but this substance has basically been almost totally removed from our food supply.

For instance, lima-beans our great gandparents ate had a lot of it, but we selectively bred them to be more starchy and less nutritive dense, so they no longer contain worthwhile amounts.

People used to eat millet, which had lots of it...but now people eat mutant dwarf wheat which has none.

You can still get it from apricot kernels and certain grasses, but I just do the pill. One of the few supplements I take.


I really want to encourage you all to watch that video I linked to above. It's low budget, but really shows how powerful this stuff is, and why it so powerful against cancer. But without harming your healthy cells.

It's basically a laser guided missile into cancer cells. The "poison" in it can ONLY be activated by an enzyme that is ONLY found in cancer cells.

It can NOT be released into healthy cells.

I've been taking it for years, and never been better.

I had a benign lump which has shrunk to almost nothing. I also had lots of pre-cancerous red dots all over my skin, that have gone away about 80% since I started taking my modest daily dose.

Perhaps if I doubled my dose, they'd be gone entirely by now. But I'm cheap and like to make each bottle last a month between my wife and myself.

I will start kids on it soon.

From what I'm reading, supps not recommended (toxicity!).

Stick with moderate levels of cherry or apple seeds, lentils, kidney or gabanzo beans, and whole berries

There's a longer list, but these were the ones I'd have no prob eating on a semiregular basis.

I've noticed as I've aged (will be 43 in May) a few tiny red dots on my skin such as on arm, face, etc. I always assumed these are aging marks?

I eat about two handfuls of Blueberries daily. I eat about 8-9 servings a day of fruits and vegs.

I know it has to be very tough. I'm sure all will turn out well. I recently had some general routine blood work done including calcium and thyroid actually.

My cousin developed thyroid cancer years ago while she was in her 20s. They removed it and she has been fine since - that was probably 25 years ago at least?

My father had his thyroid removed when he was a kid. It was over-active. He lived healthy until passing at 94.

BretC:

I was diagnosed with advanced Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 2011.

I noticed a lump; as soon as my doctor saw it and I saw her face...I knew. I was sent for near-immediate scans, blood work, a bone marrow biopsy and a biopsy of one tumor.

I had tumors and fluid around my heart and lungs; it got to the point where I had to sleep in a recliner because I couldn't breathe if prone or supine.

Results of my biopsy took much longer than normal to come back: 6 long weeks waiting to know what exactly my affliction was and what my odds were.

I had a chemo port implanted, had six months of treatment spanning the second half of 2011. I was able to work more than full time throughout. My workouts were restricted to lower body only as my (probably overly cautious) surgeon recommended no upper body exercise. Workouts were, of course, timid affairs as my cardiopulmonary system was pretty compromised.

Here we are almost four years later. I had an appointment with my oncologist just this morning. Most recent blood was great. BP was 110/80; I am 51 years old, take no medications of any kind...well, other than my twice-weekly HIT workouts.

After a few years of frequent testing and prodding, I was informed today that if my September CAT scan is clear, future testing will consist merely of blood tests twice per year.

I don't know that one ever "beats cancer"; the wolf will always be at the door but, thankfully, for me he's now outside and not within.

My hope for you is successful treatment and full recovery. May your wold be expelled, never to return. It can happen!

My sister. Apparently if you're going to have cancer, this is the type you want... easily rectified and not likely to spread. The thyroid simply needs to be removed. It means meds thereafter (to regulate your system since you no longer have a thyroid). They took out half my sister's, thinking they can save half, but later had to remove the entire thing. Not sure if it's worth keeping half to avoid meds, but I guess everyone's case is different.

This is one that I think they say might be overdiagnosed and overtreated. Certainly in this article thats the gist. Hopefully that makes the diagnosis less scary.

"We need to recognize that subcentimeter papillary thyroid cancers are probably a normal finding, based on extensive data from autopsy series, showing that 5% to 30% of patients have a small occult papillary thyroid cancer in their thyroid glands when they die of other causes," said lead author Luc G.T. Morris, MD, from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center's Head and Neck Service in New York.
