My Name is Robert K.

I have just discovered that my 85 years old mother who is in perfect health condition for her age, suffers from Lungs' cancer.

The Pet scan shows a 2cm spot in the left Lung in addition to few smaller spots in the left and right lungs. She is not aware of her bad situation and thinks it is a minor disorder.

The few doctors i have consulted so far decided not to touch her with any kind of Chimio or operation, not even a biopsy, being not advisable for her advanced age.

They advised to leave her in peace and to only treat any future symptom or pain that she may encounter.

I tried to search for softer alternatives and read about a medicine from Cuba called CIMAVAX-EGF.

Can anyone advise if this Cuban treatment is efficient and consequently how to get it and at which stage of the cancer evolution it should be used?

Many thanks for your kind advice.

Good day to you all

Robert K.

Hi Robert K,

I'm sad to learn that your mother has been diagnosed with lung cancer. Have you thought about a second opinion from another Oncologist? I hope that you will find answers to the questions you are looking for. Please keep us posted.

Hi Robert,

How are things going with your mom? I understand why doctors would not want to treat your mom at her age. It could be that the cancer is a slow growing cancer that would take years to cause any problems...I am just guessing. A second opinion is a good idea. There are many natural and complimentary therapies that can help her with side effects. I also recommend visiting our Ask the Experts section of this website to ask our experts direct questions about her situation or possible treatment options. www.lungevity.org/experts

Please do keep us posted. I look forward to seeing an update from you soon!

hugs,

KatieB
