Hello - some of you have may seen the programmes on Channel 4 this week "stand up to cancer" (SU2C). Well anyway, a programme I recorded on C4 this week was Curing Cancer. Hope some of you may have seen it - fantastic. It followed 4 patients at a hospital in London and the new treatments/trials being offered. It was amazing - the way in which the medical staff explained, with excellent graphics, the tumours, treatments, etc being offered. It seems that in some cases the scan pictures are shown to patients with tumours shapes and sizes explained.
Some of the new treatments were heat/freeze treatments direct to tumours, immunology, trial drugs in tablet form, and chemo treatment directly into tumours - some done during MRI - brilliant.
Anyone out there who heard of such treatments or trials, or did any of you ever see your scan pictures. I always prefer to see what is happened as it is easier to understand a visual image than a verbal explanation.
Hope all well as the site is quiet at present. Will see you soon at coffee morning anyway.
