Hi Miki,

We would suggest that your mum, and you, speak to her doctors as soon as possible for full interpretation of the scan and a discussion of what the results means and what to do next.

We would suggest to be VERY cautious about starting any alternative or complementary medicines without firstly discussing with the medical consultant in charge of your mums care. There has not been enough clinical research into the safety or effectiveness of many of these products and they could potentially worsen her health.

Are you in the UK? if so you may want to call our nurse led helpline for an additional chat on 0800 652 7330 10am to 3pm Monday to Friday.

Best wishes.
