Can Breast Cancer Spontaneously Regress?
A powerful case study and literature review published in the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Pathology from 2014 highlights a phenomenon which is rarely if ever acknowledged by the conventional medical establishment, namely, a case of the spontaneous regression of breast cancer with distant lymph node metastasis.
A 52-year old female was diagnosed with a lump in her left breast which had spread metastically to a distant lymph node (armpit area). Before surgery she was found to have severe type 2 diabetes, and was treated with insulin until her high blood sugar normalized, a month later. She then underwent surgery on her left breast. Her post-surgery examination revealed the spontaneous regression of breast cancer both at the primary site and the metastatic lymph node in her armpit.
Furthermore, immunohistochemical studies found that the woman’s estrogen receptor positive, AE1/AE3-positive ductal carcinoma,
“…completely underwent necrosis associated with extensive infiltration of CD3-positive T cells in the tumor nodule in the lymph node. In addition, primary ductal carcinoma cells also underwent single cell necrosis with infiltration of T cells with lymph follicle-like organization of B cells in the mammary gland. The features were suggestive that the tumor eradication in the metastatic lymph node and regression of the primary ductal carcinoma could be due to host T cell response to the ductal carcinoma. As far as we know it is the first report that shows the spontaneous regression of breast cancer, probably due to the spontaneously-induced T cell response.”
Were the patient’s innate immune response considered important in combating cancer, most of the drugs and conventional cancer-fighting approaches used today would be contraindicated. Additionally, immune supportive approaches related to mind-body practices, nutrition, dietary supplements, exercise, familial and interpersonal support systems, and other lifestyle factors would be prioritized.
