Early Stage Ovarian Cancer

With ovarian cancer being the fifth deadliest cancer in women, you wouldn’t think that it only amounts to about 3 percent of all the cancers that women have. According to specialists, this type of cancer accounts for more deaths among women when compared with other female reproductive system cancers.

Of course, if the disease is discovered at an early stage, the better, as the outcome could be completely different if the disease is in its incipient stage. However, the numbers don’t lie: only about 20 percent of all cases of ovarian cancer are discovered in their early stages!

The vice president of hematology and oncology at inVentiv Health, Joe O’Connell, MD, says this is due to the fact that with how large the abdominal cavity is when you add the fact that there are no symptoms of early stage ovarian cancer, it makes it very hard for it to be diagnosed.

When women begin to exhibit symptoms, the cancer has usually advanced to stage three or four!

Cancer.org estimates that every year more than 20,000 women find out that they have ovarian cancer, and of all those women, almost 14,000 will unfortunately not make it out alive, despite battling the disease. This means that 64 percent of all women who get this form of cancer die due to it and the fact that it’s really hard to detect.

  1. I survivrd a 1.5 X 1.7 cm pancreatic adenocarcinoma in the bile duct of the pancreatic head. The way I knew it was there, despite lack of symptoms was as follows:
    I had a sonogram of the adominal area for another reason—which turned out negative for what the dr. thought was happening. I had no symptoms. the radiology report listed an observation of “dilated pancreatic main duct”. As I usually do, I looked up what this meant. It said that there was an 80% chance a neoplasm would start to grow in that duct. It could be malignant or benign or start out as benign and become malignant. My grandmother died of pancreatic cancer. I had been treated for a very small adenocarcinoma called “non mammary pagets disease” in the outer vulva. I read all sorts of info. Included was a statement from surgical oncologists that non mammary paget’s usually occurs secondary to another cancer. Since previous med center ct’s and sonograms showed no cancers y oincolgist for the paget’s figured there was no other cancer. I also read that with pancreatic cancer you can have it for 10–15 years before it actually reveals itself—also it cannot be seen on a ct unless it is larger than 1/2 cm.

    When you are awake your conscious mind is in charge; when you are asleep the subconscious mind is in charge. What the sub conscious mind does when you are asleep is to figure out the significance of all the information you have in your mind. When I woke up I knew I probably had a cancer in the pancreatic duct—so at the check up for the paget’s I told that gynecological oncology surgeon to do a ct scan because I was sure there would be a pancreatic cancer there and I was refusing to die from pancreatic cancer. He had the ct scan done. We drove home from MSK in NYC the next day (about 300 miles). 2 days later I was called to return for a more finely descriminating ct—-and 2 days after that one was called and told that I had an appointment with the head of the hepatobilliary dept.—who when I met him said—You have cancer—youre getting surgery–then chemo and radiation. Ireplied calmly “I know” because I had gotten the radiology report and read every thing I could about this. 😊 The doctor said ” are you one of those people who likes to read about everything that’s going on?” I said “yes” so he handed me a 68 page print out about every detail of the whipple procedure and after care etc.

    So it is good for people to get preventive checkups, evenbuying their own tests and reeading what the significance of the test and all results means—BUT I have to admit–this whole diagnosis was sort of part luck. I was also wondering if since I’s been doing Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and some martial arts for years if I somehow had a closer connection between my mind and body—which sound really weirs, but anyway I am glad some very brilliant scientists have researched ways to survive the after effects of chemo and radiaiton because unfortunatley the cures soome timmes kill you later on.

    That was 4 1/2 yearas ago. I am currently using off label d oses of rapamycin and disanitib and quercetin. Why? Research shows an answer tot the question”why do people with a cancer later get another one?” The answer. Excessive mTOR type 1 and excessive scenecent cells ( nicknamed Zombie cells by the researchers). The rapamycin stops your body from amking more scenecent cells and stops cardiomyopathy, and prevents fibrosys of the heart , lung and muscles (which are all side effects later from chemo). The D and Q kills the remaining excessive scenecent cells and alklows your body to make new mesenchymal stem cells. This is calle d a senolytic. The other senolytic uis fisetin. There are specific protocols for these 3 things and a dr. is required to supervise your use and results and to prescribe the rapamycin and the disatinib. I am currently in excellent health even though I am 74 and the survival rate for what I had is very low.
