luv my black and gold,
In this “modern age” I am continually appalled by the continuing practice of doing biopsies because there is now a blood test that will accurately detect early cancer of all types. It has an accuracy of greater than 95%. If the test is repeated, the accuracy is greater than 99%. That is to say, that false positive and false negative rates are less than 1%. The test is called AMAS. AMAS stands for "anti-malignin antibody in serum." The test is extremely sensitive; blood levels of this antibody rise early in the course of the vast majority of cancers of all types, regardless of location in the body. The test is especially useful when cancer is suspected but has not been confirmed by a biopsy. Were it not for the intransigence of established authorities, the AMAS test undoubtedly would be much more widely used. Another test that is also overlooked is yet again another safe alternative to all the expensive and/or injurious/invasive tests, and is as follows - All trophoblast cells produce a unique hormone called the chorionic gonadotrophic (CGH) which is easily detected in urine. Thus if a person is either pregnant or has cancer, a simple CGH pregnancy test should confirm either or both. It does, with an accuracy of better than 92% in all cases. If the urine sample shows positive it means either normal pregnancy or abnormal malignant cancer. Griffin notes: If the patient is a woman, she either is pregnant or has cancer. If he is a man, cancer can be the only cause. So why are all of the expensive, dangerous biopsies carried out to 'detect' cancerous growths? During biopsies or other procedures, one can dislodge some cancer cells, either into the interstitial fluid where they are carried away to lymph nodes, or possibly into the veins draining the tissue where they enter the vascular tree and travel to the lungs. It is also possible to drag some cells along the needle track or along the surgical incision. So it is possible to increase the incidence of lymphatic and haematogenous spread of the cancer, as well as local implantation along the surgical route or needle tracks. One can only assume that Medicare pays doctors a larger fee for biopsies than pregnancy tests. For obvious reasons, I am unable to comment on the details that you quote in your question, as I have no access to any results or details of any other procedures past or imminent. I wish you and your father well.
