    Best answer: Breast cancer is rarely classed as 'cured'. Generally it is classed as 'NED' or 'No evidence of disease' rather than as 'cured'. This can vary fepending on the type of breast cancer.There is a vacine being developed to reduce the risk of reccurence pf a particular subtype of breast cancer.
    There are more than 17 different types of breast cancer and even more subtypes.
    Whilst this is great news because it is a particularly nasty and common form of breast cancer you need to understand it does NOT cure breast cancer and does NOT stop all breast cancers starting or reccuring.
    It would have had ZERO effect on my sisters first breast cancer 24 years ago or the one she is currently fighting. It would have had ZERO effect on the breast cancer that killed our mother. It would have had ZERO effect on the breast cancer that I had 14 years ago. Yet these were all DIFFERENT types of breast cancer.

  • Can nicotine cause cancer?

    I've never smoked a cigarette a day in my life but I do use an E-cig that you fill with juices that are 6mg of Nicotine. If I use it every day, could it cause cancer?

    Best answer: She couldve been misdiagnosed in the first place and then a second or even a third time. A misdiagnosis for cancer is a one in a million chance, but it could happen three times.

    Cancer itself is a mostly random mutation. It's possible but pretty dang unlikely that whatever cancer mutated again to be normal,

    Most likely in my opinion, the chemotherapy worked and the prognosis was wrong. Maybe the doc looked at the wrong test results or something when determining it... These things happen....

  • Does a cancer lump always grow or does it stop. Because I got a hard lump over my thyroid it’s moveable, painless and doesn’t grow.?

    And it’s been there for some years, like 2. I don’t have any other lumps that I know of, could this be cancer or something else. I’ve been to the doctor long time ago and he took a blood test and told me I’m fine. Now what? I’m worried but I don’t want to Go to the doctor again :((

  • Back bone pain - is it bone cancer?

    Best answer: If you’ve had this pain for 8 years, the chances are about zero that it’s any type of cancer. Cancer, especially when untreated, tends to spread much more quickly than over 8 years. Juvenile cancers are particularly virulent. I had a friend die from Ewing’s Sarcoma. He was 17 or 18 when he was diagnosed. Even... show more
    Best answer: If you’ve had this pain for 8 years, the chances are about zero that it’s any type of cancer. Cancer, especially when untreated, tends to spread much more quickly than over 8 years. Juvenile cancers are particularly virulent.

    I had a friend die from Ewing’s Sarcoma. He was 17 or 18 when he was diagnosed. Even with chemo and radiation, he lived only another 2 years.

    If you have recurring pain that wakes you from sleep, you need to discuss it with your physician. If you are regularly convinced you have severe illnesses, or you are regularly a victim, speak with your psychiatrist.

    I’m truly sorry you’re in pain and hope someone can figure it out. Good Luck.

  • I'm 19 and worried I may have breast cancer? PLEASE help! I'm so scared.?

    Best answer: Highly unlikely. 
    The risk of breast cancer at your age is only 1 in 1,300,000 and pain is rarely a symptom. 

    Pain is commonly associated with various hormonal breast lumps that commonly occur in ternagers. 

    As it has been there a while, get it checked by your doctor to set your mind at rest.

  • I'm SCARED I HAVE BREAST CANCER AT 19 PLEASE HELP ME PLEASE IM SO SCARED?

    Best answer: You don't have breast cancer. Relax. Next time you see your doctor, ask him/her to show how to do a real breast exam and ask what this spot is. It is 10,000,000,000,000x more likely to be a fiberous nodule that is no big deal.
