Can You Stop Pancreatic Cancer?

Postby Atagulkalu » Tue Sep 26, 2017 2:00 am

Kay, my aunt has pancreatic cancer. She found just today. The specialist said the cancer had already spread to the liver. But when she got blood(or something from her) from my aunt, the result was negative... It's so confusing.

Anyways, can you take a medicine to help stop it?

Or what are the things can she eat/do/take to help it stop.

My grandfather, had cancer, he just drank cranberry juice, but it was prostate cancer.

help me please. she's in desperate need. Although, shes not worried about anything... but my mom is ( who is her sister). HELP.

I appreciate any suggestion!!

They do more testing than blood tests for that kind of diagnosis. She should also have had MRIs which would give a better diagnosis & also tell about the spread of the disease. Pancreatic cancer is one of the cancers that have a poor prognosis, esp. if it has spread. Many celebrities have had or have it including Michael Landon ("Highway to Heaven") and currently Patrick Swayze ("Dirty Dancing", "Ghost"). Patrick Swayze underwent experimental chemo treatments which have extended his life, but unfortunately few patients live for 5 years after diagnosis. Prostate cancer is not as "bad" as pancreatic, for many patients outlive that & after surgery do well. The most important thing for you is to find out what is the truth...does she have it or not? Even if she does, there are treatments available. Sometimes not knowing is worse than knowing what you are really dealing with. Good luck.

I'm not a medical expert, though i will try to answer your question as nest i can. Most kinds of cancer, including pancreatic cancer, can be stopped with certain kinds of medicine and even chemotherapy if it's obstinate. A faulty test probably said the cancer had spread to the liver, but a blood test is one that will tell you accurately. It probably hasn't spread, and you guys most likely caught it early.


say a prayer or two.

Oh my dear...well you know with God all things are possible, so prayer would not hurt.
But in reality, when cancer metastasizes (spreads) to the liver, it is not too good.
Because the liver is the body's filtration system and if it does not work properly, things could get very serious very fast.
Believe me I know how you feel because my three brothers all died of lung cancer and it is very traumatic for them, of course, and for the whole family.
You aunt probably is at peace with her diagnosis and that is why she is calm.
The best thing you can do is to try an not stress your mom as she is probably really, really upset.
So do what you can to make her life as easy as possible.
She will really need you to be strong for her.
Spend as much time with your aunt as you can and go out together and do things as a family as long as she feels like doing them.
I wish I had more encouraging news my dear.
Take care.

I would take resveratrol with the chemo and radiation.

This is a deadly cancer.

Only 5% make it for 5 yrs.

Most are dead in 6 to 12 mo.s

as it is in stage 4 and has spread before

they have any symptoms.

The pancreas pumps the chemo out

of the cells.

If they catch it real early an operation can give you more time.

Go to Robertsreview.com and read about a vaccine

for pancreatic cancer.

Google news drugs and treatments for pancreatic cancer.
