Radiation for Throat Cancer
In 2011 I went through treatment for stage IV throat cancer. It was in my left tonsil. It is a curable cancer but the treatment is brutal and the side effects can be life changing and permanent. I post this video so that those facing this treatment and their friends and family will know what one session of radiation is like. I went through 33 rounds of radiation and 3 rounds of chemo (Cisplatin). In this video the you see the first part where I am placed on the table (my feeding tube visible under my shirt) and the radiation mask snapped down. The techs leave the room and the next part is the daily x-ray to check my position and the alignment of the machine. At 7:38 the actual delivery of radiation begins with two arcs encompassing my neck. At 11:33 the machine stops in front of my face, directing a concentrated beam directly at the tumor through my mouth. Have questions about what to expect? Contact me through the comments and I'll be glad to tell you about my experience and survival. BTW I am also an RN.

How Can Brachytherapy Help Treat Cancer? - Manipal Hospitals
What is Brachytherapy? It is an internal radiation therapy used for treating cancer. How does Cancer develop in the patient? The nucleus controls the growth and division of cells through the instructions coded in the D.N.A. In usual cases, if the D.N.A in a cell is damaged, it either instructs the cell to repair itself or to die off. In the case of Cancer, the part of the D.N.A that controls cell division is damaged and this prevents the cell from repairing itself or dying. The damaged cells instead divide uncontrollably to form cancer cells. A tumor forms as they multiply. How is Brachytherapy performed? In Brachytherapy, radioactive, pellets, ribbons, or wires are placed into or near the cancerous tumor. This inflicts damage to the D.N.A that it cannot recover from and thus kills off the cancer cells. There are two types of Brachytherapy, temporary and permanent.

Eating During Cancer Treatment
Many patients with cancer, especially when undergowing chemotherapy or radiotherapy, suffer from loss of appetite, nausea, and other probelms in their digestive system. Many of these problems can be helped with the following tips: Plan your major meal when you experience the least nausea and vomiting. This is often the case early in the morning. Eat small frequent meals throughout the day. Let someone cook for you, because cooking odors might provoke your nausea. If you’re suffeing from mouth sores or if you have difficulty swallowing, eat bland and pureed foods, like puddings, shakes, smoothies, mashed potatoes and rice, or soups. Avoid salty, spicey, and acidic foods. Take zink-rich foods, like nuts, beans, and mushrooms . Zink will help your sores heal faster. If you have nausea, try chewing on ice chips or eating/drinking ginger. If diarrhea is a problem, avoid fatty foods, raw fruits, and whole grain products. Instead, eat bland foods like rice and cooked apples. Rest after eating in a sitting position. Maintain your healthy dental hygiene: if brushing is too painful due to the mouth sores, try washing with a weak solution containing hydrogen peroxide. Make meals visually attractive and in a nice setting. Vitamin and supplement intake is to be avoided since there are concerns that vitamins might blunt the effect of chemotherapy against cancer cells and supplements might increase toxicity to the liver and kidneys. There are exceptions and some chemotherapy drugs specifically require a vitamin to reduce side effects. Ask your doctor for more information. Regarding the fluid requirement on the chemothreapy days: Some chemotherapies require fluid to be taken before treatment to prevent kidney problems. Other chemotherapies require fluid to be taken afterwards to reduce bladder inflammation. Check with your doctor. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

My throat cancer treatment.
I am currently undergoing radiation treatments for stage 2 throat cancer. The people at the center allowed me to record one of my treatments today. Number 27 out of 35 was today. Thought anybody about to undergo these treatments might like to see what's in store for them. Might make things a little easier going into them. Since I started mine with no idea of what was to be expected. I was a little worried going into it. After you see this it may ease your mind somewhat. I layed down on the table and got strapped in at 8:00. By 8: 06 I was getting up and ready to head back home. It's just the matter of having to do it five days per week with weekends off for a little recovery. Hope this eases the minds a little of those that are about to have this done.

Surgery of an Early Stage of Tounge Cancer. A rare video
Tongue cancer Tongue cancer is a type of oral cancer that forms in the front two-thirds of the tongue. Cancer that forms in the back one third of the tongue is considered a type of head and neck cancer. Tongue cancer usually develops in the squamous cells, the thin, flat cells that cover the surface of the tongue. Common tongue cancer symptoms Symptoms of tongue cancer are very similar to symptoms of other types of oral cancer. It can often be mistaken for a cold that won’t go away, or a persistent sore in the mouth. Other tongue cancer symptoms and signs may include: Persistent tongue and/or jaw pain A lump or thickening in the inside of the mouth A white or red patch on the gums, tongue, tonsil, or lining of the mouth A sore throat or feeling that something is caught in the throat that does not go away Difficulty swallowing or chewing Difficulty moving the jaw or tongue NOTE: These symptoms may be attributed to a number of conditions other than cancer. It is important to consult with a medical professional for an accurate diagnosis. Advanced treatments for tongue cancer Common tongue cancer treatments include: Surgery: Tumor resection involves an operation to remove the entire tumor from the tongue. Minimally invasive surgical techniques are used whenever possible to treat tongue cancer. Radiation therapy: Your radiation oncologist will administer radiation therapy to cancerous tissues of the tongue, directing high, targeted doses of radiation to the tumor using technology designed to spare healthy tissue and shorten procedure times. Chemotherapy: Often combined with radiation therapy, chemotherapy uses anticancer drugs to destroy cancer cells throughout the body. It may be an option if the cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes. Different chemotherapy drugs can be combined to attack cancer cells at varying stages of their growth cycles and decrease the chance of drug resistance. Targeted drug therapy: Targeted drug therapy targets cancerous cells to interfere with cell growth on a molecular level. It is often combined with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy as part of a tongue cancer treatment plan.

How does Proton Therapy work?
Basic principles of Proton Therapy: how does it work? Unlike traditional radiotherapy that uses photons to irradiate and kill tumor cells, proton therapy is an advanced form of treatment using protons. These particles give proton therapy its many advantages: - Fewer radiation outside the tumor; - Less side effects - Lower risk of induced disorders; - Better quality of life during and after cancer treatment. Proton therapy is changing the way we treat cancer.

My Story - Oral Cancer, Dry Mouth Relief
Relief for Dry Mouth for Oral Cancer Patients This is a story told by Garry Williams, who experienced dry mouth syndrome due to mouth cancer. He has some advice for you. Smoking is a common cause of Oral Cancer, also known as head and neck cancer. Also, drinking alcohol along with using tobacco will greatly increase your risk of getting this disease. There can be other causes such as HPV virus. If you suspect oral cancer symptoms, please see your doctor right away. This disease if often curable if detected early enough. Unfortunately, it often is not detected as early as it should be, as severe symptoms may arise only too late. If you do get oral cancer, then there are a few different kinds of treatments which may be advanced by your medical professionals. One is radiation therapy, and the other is chemotherapy. Sometimes these two methods are used in conjunction. Also, of course, there is surgery which is the third form of treatment. Luckily advances in medical procedures have made invasive surgery less common than it once was. All of this will depend upon the specifics of your own particular cancer. Both during and after cancer treatment, the saliva glands can be adversely effected. This results in reduced saliva which causes Dry Mouth Syndrome. This can be a very annoying condition, and it can also result in dental problems. If you do get dry mouth, then please read the following website for more information on the subject.

Oral cancer  treatment
Surgery Surgery to remove the tumor in the mouth or throat is a common treatment for oral cancer. Sometimes the surgeon also removes lymph nodes in the neck. Other tissues in the mouth and neck may be removed as well. Patients may have surgery alone or in combination with radiation therapy. You may want to ask the doctor these questions before having surgery: What kind of operation do you recommend for me? Do I need any lymph nodes removed? Why? How will I feel after the operation? How long will I be in the hospital? What are the risks of surgery? Will I have trouble speaking, swallowing, or eating? Where will the scars be? What will they look like? Will I have any long-term effects? Will I look different? Will I need reconstructive or plastic surgery? When can that be done? Will I lose my teeth? Can they be replaced? How soon? Will I need to see a specialist for help with my speech? When can I get back to my normal activities? How often will I need checkups? Would a clinical trial be appropriate for me? Radiation therapy Radiation therapy (also called radiotherapy) is a type of local therapy. It affects cells only in the treated area. Radiation therapy is used alone for small tumors or for patients who cannot have surgery. It may be used before surgery to kill cancer cells and shrink the tumor. It also may be used after surgery to destroy cancer cells that may remain in the area. Radiation therapy uses high-energy rays to kill cancer cells. Doctors use two types of radiation therapy to treat oral cancer: External radiation: The radiation comes from a machine. Patients go to the hospital or clinic once or twice a day, generally 5 days a week for several weeks. Internal radiation (implant radiation): The radiation comes from radioactive material placed in seeds, needles, or thin plastic tubes put directly in the tissue. The patient stays in the hospital. The implants remain in place for several days. Usually they are removed before the patient goes home. Some people with oral cancer have both kinds of radiation therapy. You may want to ask the doctor these questions before having radiation therapy: Which type of radiation therapy do you recommend for me? Why do I need this treatment? When will the treatments begin? When will they end? Should I see my dentist before I start treatment? If I need dental treatment, how much time does my mouth need to heal before radiation therapy starts? What are the risks and side effects of this treatment? What can I do about them? How will I feel during therapy? What can I do to take care of myself during therapy? How will my mouth and face look afterward? Are there any long-term effects? Can I continue my normal activities? Will I need a special diet? For how long? How often will I need checkups? Would a clinical trial be appropriate for me? Chemotherapy Chemotherapy uses anticancer drugs to kill cancer cells. It is called systemic therapy because it enters the bloodstream and can affect cancer cells throughout the body. A new targeted therapy called cetuximab, which blocks a growth factor upon which cancer cells may depend, is being used today, either alone or in combination with radiation and older chemotherapy drugs. Chemotherapy is usually given by injection. It may be given in an outpatient part of the hospital, at the doctor's office, or at home. Rarely, a hospital stay may be needed. You may want to ask the doctor these questions before having chemotherapy: Why do I need this treatment? Which drug or drugs will I have? How do the drugs work?

Mouth Cancer - Treatment || Health Tips
If the cancer hasn't spread beyond the mouth or the oropharynx (the bit of your throat at the back of your mouth), a complete cure may be possible using a combination of surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Radiotherapy makes the teeth more sensitive and vulnerable to infection so before treatment begins, you'll be given a full dental examination and any necessary work will be carried out.

Thanks for all of your thoughts, prayers, and positive energy. Hi all, I forgot to mention that I buy nearly all organic food and almost nothing processed. I also try to get more out of my nuts and legumes by sprouting them and tossing them on my daily salad. I have become a vegetarian and it feels so good! Here are the links I talked about in the video. Educate yourself and you will learn that there is more to health than pills! Gerson Therapy for all sorts of cancer: http://gerson.org/gerpress/ http://www.youtube.com/movie?v=DoUl7F7dWdE&feature=mv_sr A MUST HAVE for cancer patients (daily carrot/apple juices): Do yourself a favor and get a good juicer from the start rather then buying a few until you find one that works well. Here is the best: Omega VRT 350 juicer! Don't get the cheap centrifugal juicers that allow oxygen to kill the juice quickly. Use the 20% off coupon and get it at Bed Bath and Beyond...it's the cheapest place to get it, trust me, I spent days looking. http://www.omegajuicers.com/juicers/vert350-juicer.html Stop drinking any beverage stored in plastic...even bottled water. http://www.kleankanteen.com/ Get rid of aluminum pots/pans (use stainless steel) and get rid of your deodorant with aluminum in it.

Here is a way to get your liver function back. I do daily organic coffee enema's.....yes DAILY! It's not nearly as bad as it sounds. It's the most refreshing thing I do on any given day. I haven't been sick since I started doing them on April 22. I never get dehydrated, burned (don't put hot coffee in there, duh), or malnutritioned like all the "negative talk" you will see on various enema bashing websites. Trust me, I did a mountain bike tour from Barcelona to Madrid over 2 weeks this summer (yes, I was less than 10 months from my first surgery that I went on this tour and I gained so much power.) Just try the enema once and thank me later when you go back to do it a second and third time, etc. I think the enema, vegetarian/organic eating, and daily carrot/apple juices are the reason I have strength, energy and overall health back to normal (I'm probably better than before). http://www.raw-wisdom.com/coffee-enemas Get inspired by a true winner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J8Hsto10vUI&feature=related Injections with Mistletoe Extract (Brand name is Iscador): http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/mistletoe/patient/page2http://www.lukasklinik.ch/en/our-spectrum/medical-treatment/mistletoe-therapy/ What do you think?

Oral Cancer Patients Have a Lot to Swallow
Patients with oral cancers had a much better long-term diet if they received oral feeding and practiced swallowing exercises during radiation therapy. That's the word from a new study. For Stacey Brill, those are words to live by. "If we can maintain you eating and drinking throughout the course of your treatment, maintain you on the course of nutrition and hydration, make sure your pain levels are under control, your whole life is going to be better," says Brill. Brill is a speech therapist with Lee Memorial Health System. She works with head and neck cancer patients, some who've lost vital parts to surgery, others have damage from radiation. Her challenge it to re-teach them how to swallow. "In the swallowing therapy we use a combination of things. We're going to do a modified swallow to assess the swallow function. Once we identify what's wrong with the swallow we're able to bring them into the clinic and put the Vitalstim electrodes on them which is going to make their swallowing muscles contract," says Brill. This large study showed oral cancer patients who maintained oral intake were twice as likely to eat a regular diet later. And those who stuck to swallowing exercises were four times as likely to eat normally. Working with a cancer dietitian also makes the process easier to digest. "We can empower the patients to participate, to nourish and hydrate themselves. And nutrition is so important, the replacing possible nutrients or bi-products that are lost through the whole treatment plan," says Valerie Butram, oncology dietitian with Lee Memorial Health System. A key to success is being proactive, using a cancer pathway that includes feeding as part of the overall treatment plan. "If we can start you on a home education program or a home exercise program to prevent those deficits to happen over the course of your cancer treatment, you're obviously going to be better off," says Brill. Staying on top of swallowing may help cancer patients enjoy a lifetime of eating.

Can one with Cancer of tongue, tonsil & throat avoid Chemoradiation? - Dr. Sandeep P Nayak
The conventional treatment for the cancers of the base of the tongue, tonsils, and throat has been chemoradiation. That is combination of chemotherapy and radiation. These treatments have life long side effects like difficulty in swallowing, in approximately 30% of the people. There is dry mouth and there are many other complications that last lifelong. These recent advances in surgery in the form of robotic surgery has made surgery much easier for the patients. This entity or the new advance sin surgery called as the trans oral robotic surgery where the surgery is performed through mouth and cancer is removed completely is helping several patients. This does not have several side effects. Most of the patients are able to lead a normal life within weeks. As such there is no life long side effects. Surgery which is also called TORS is becoming the treatment of choice for these cancers of the base of the tongue, the tonsils and the throat.
Changing Face of Oral Cancer Patients
Head and neck cancers are fairly treatable, but in removing tumors patients often faced devastating effects. Losing part of their jaw or tongue, for example. The trend in surgical oncology is to offer more palpable procedures. “After you take the cancer out, you have to be able to put them back together if you will. A big goal of ours is to give our patients a reasonable quality of life afterwards,” says Dr. Tony Anfuso, who is a surgical head and neck oncologist on medical staff of Lee Memorial Health System. A specialist in head and neck cancer surgery, Dr. Tony Anfuso is offering advanced techniques to patients in Southwest Florida; including free flap reconstruction. “That’s where you take either some soft tissue from the arm or the thigh or you can take bone from the leg and reconstruct a mandible. And you use that tissue to reconstruct their tissues of the head and neck,” says Dr. Anfuso. Building on better surgical options, today’s oral cancer patients face a better future. The newly relocated tissue is altered to look and perform as closely as possible to the original: decreasing disfigurement and boosting quality of life, a far different outlook than in years past. “If you go back, say 10 years ago, patients were getting more radical neck dissections. There was more accessory nerve damage. Radiation wasn’t quite as pinpointed. Chemo drugs were a little bit different. So we had a full gamut of different side effects,” says Stacey Brill, a speech pathologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Many patients were left speechless or unable to eat or drink without a feeding tube; consequences which are seen less frequently now. “We’re still treating their swallowing deficits. They just had greater deficits,” says Brill. Removing cancer and a major side effect, free flap reconstruction is changing the landscape. “The chances of this flap surviving is higher today than it’s ever been and we can do it in a shorter amount of time. That allows us to do bigger surgeries, and tackle bigger cancers,” says Dr. Anfuso. Making life after cancer much easier to swallow.

In this video we share what we learned about healing the mouth and throat using only natural solutions. The information in this video is based on our personal experiences. Neither of us have any degrees in medicine and we recommend you always make your own decisions based on your own research, experiences, and common sense. We suggest you compare all options (both popular and alternative) and choose that which resonates most with you. Wieteke worked as a life style coach (organic lifestyle and energy consciousness) for some years until her focus moved to channeling (she has always felt guided by Multi Dimensional beings that assisted in readings with clients to assist them to get to a point of holistic self-healing). She has seen many personal experiences with natural healing in her own life and the lives of others. With Peter she was helping a dear friend who was committed to a more healthier way of living to combat his neck and throat cancer as well as the side effects of the radiation treatments he was about to begin. After she arrived from Amsterdam they experimented for 6 weeks with some incredible results, as you will see in this video. They decided to discuss our experiences in these 3 videos after many of the doctors and nurses at the Cancer Center in Sedona (AZ), where Peter had his 8-week daily treatments, strongly recommended they'd share the remarkable results with the rest of the world.
