Cancer Blog: Why some breast cancer returns quickly

Just recently I was talking to Joan. In July 2017 she had an operation to remove a breast tumour – a lumpectomy. And here we are in February 2019, she has two more tumours near the same spot and the oncologists are scheduling a mastectomy.  Her key question to me was ‘Why did it all come back so quickly?’.

The answer lies in research. Let’s start with the CHAMELEO study. According to researchers, surgeons performing lumpectomies sometimes take away blood vessels with the cancerous tissue. After Joan has healed, there ican be a resultant lack of oxygen in that area. And lowered oxygen encourages cancer re-growth through histone formation. The researchers suggested having Hyperbaric Oxygen to maximise localized oxygen.

Of course, there are other ways to reduce localized oxygen.  Surgery and antibiotics followed by FEC-T or a similar regimen of drugs, will likely result in yeast infestation in the body. At CANCERactive, we tell patients on chemo to take oregano oil or caprylic acid during this period to prevent yeast build up. Yeasts in the gut soon get into the blood stream and tissues and colonise areas, especially around scar tissue. They are anaerobes and will lower the oxygen in those places.

Maybe, the lumpectomy missed other ‘hotspots’.  Joan had a 'Ductal' breast cancer. This most usually results from calcification in the breast ducts. If you have one duct blocked, you most probably have others building. I helped two ladies in quick succession in October 2017; on the Sunday morning a lady from South Africa and 24 hours later a lady from Vancouver. In the previous January, both had been found to have cysts and calcification in their breasts. Their doctors decided to ‘Watch and Wait’. For what? An accident waiting to happen. One lady was diagnosed with DCIS 9 months later; the other 10 days afterwards.

The primary lumps were removed in both cases. Do Oncologists really think these are the sole hotspots where calcification has started? As a result, I decided to write up the research on how to get your calcification out of your breasts and into your bones where it belongs. The research is clear.

But the final possible factor was interesting. Joan had not had one operation, but two. The surgeon couldn’t get clear margins the first time she performed the operation. So she repeated the operation a few days later. What does this mean in practice? Actually, the surgeon cut through areas of cancer. Again, research tells us about this. Cutting through tumours or areas of cancer can spread cancer cells into the blood, lymph or adjacent tissues. So, rather than being wonderfully caring and seeking to improve the outcome, the surgeon was trying to rectify a problem. A potentially dangerous problem.

There are four ways breast cancer may reappear quickly after surgery - it was ductal and there are other calcifications, lowered oxygen resulted from surgery; lowered oxygen resulted from yeast infection; and/or surgery spread cancer cells. Add all this together, Joan, and you will understand why 42 per cent of breast cancers, especially ductal breast cancers, return within 18 months and seem so aggressive.
