Cancer: new treatments and early diagnosis are keys to survival

February 27, 2018

Early diagnosis is key to insuring the best chance of cure for cancer.

Recently, there was a report of an interesting story about a new treatment for cancer.  Four women, diagnosed with an aggressive, fatal type of ovarian cancer, were told the new treatment drugs were out of the question for them — they would not work. Yet each of them persuaded their doctors to give them immunotherapy anyway and their cancers went into remission.  The advocacy of these brave women may now lead to a cure for others facing the same grim diagnosis.  This is just another example of how important it is to be your own healthcare advocate.

Of course nothing is as effective against cancer as an early diagnosis to allow doctors to treat the cancer when there is the best chance of cure.  Unfortunately, the signs and symptoms of cancer can be missed: a mammogram can be mis-read, a breast lump not biopsied, a mole not removed, GI symptoms ignored.  When that happens, you chance of beating cancer can be moved from a likely to unlikely and you may have grounds for a medical malpractice case.
