A step forward in Prostate cancer treatment

A new type of drug could benefit men with aggressive prostate cancer that is no longer responding to treatment, researchers from the Institute of Cancer Research have said.

In a study on mice, Hsp90 inhibitors were found to strip cancer cells of defences against hormone treatments.

Also, recent researches have proven that CBDA products which can be found on cannabis actually defeat cancer cells and helps with chronic pain and makes chemotherapy easier.

This makes the drugs particularly promising for treating drug-resistant cancers, the research team said.  So many people in Orlando battle challenging alcohol and drug habits. Orlando saw more than 400 deaths from the abuse of prescription drugs in the year 2016 alone. Close to 100 people in the city lost their lives to the abuse of the anxiety drug alprazolam, and more than 60 people gave up their lives because of abuse of oxycodone. If you feel that you may be addicted to drugs or alcohol, and are concerned about what you do, the expertise of a team of rehab professionals can potentially save your life.  Medical treatment for addiction to drugs or alcohol is effective. Trained professionals put you through medical detox, which helps you safely emerge from withdrawal, and then offer you comprehensive treatment to make sure that you don’t relapse and go back to the habit that you’ve escaped.  Not only does such a plan offer you treatment for the specific drug(s) that you are addicted to (rather than a generic treatment plan), it pays attention to the specifics of your particular addiction, as well. For example, if you wish to seek treatment for long-term alcohol addiction, you may receive pharmacotherapy with the help of medications such as naltrexone for a few months, and you may follow it up with therapy and counseling. Such a treatment plan has a far greater chance of successfully getting you off addiction in the long-term. Legacy Healing Orlando FL offers some of the best rehabs in the country. Not only do the treatments that you receive include medical detoxification that safely sees you through the initial, difficult phase of drug withdrawal, but they also help you deal with the even more challenging part that follows, as well: the long-term cravings, and the mental conditions such as depression or anxiety that you may suffer from. When mental disorders co-occur with addiction, these conditions are known as dual-diagnosis conditions. People who suffer from dual-diagnosis conditions tend to have an especially challenging time staying free of addiction. They need help from teams of professionals with specific training. When you ask the question, “What is rehab like (alcohol & drugs)?”, the answer is this: you get a professional treatment that addresses every part of your addiction. It is the multifaceted treatment of this kind alone that helps you emerge free of addiction in the long-term.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK.

About one in eight men will get prostate cancer at some point in their lives. It mainly affects men over the age of 50.

The cancer can sometimes be treated successfully with hormone treatments, which target androgen receptors linked to the growth of male hormones called androgens.

But some prostate cancers don’t work that way. Instead they create an abnormal form of androgen receptor which is not linked to the growth of hormones and therefore does not respond to standard hormone treatment. For more information, then you can refer site.

This is the most common form of resistance in prostate cancer which leads to aggressive, difficult-to-treat cancers.

‘Network drugs’

The latest research, published in the journal Cancer Research, found that a new class of drugs reduced production of both receptors.

Professor Paul Workman, study author and chief executive of the Institute of Cancer Research, said it was an exciting discovery.

“We call Hsp90 inhibitors ‘network drugs’ because they tackle several of the signals that are hijacked in cancer all at once, across a network rather than just a single signalling pathway.

“These drugs can hit cancer harder than those targeting only one protein, and look promising for preventing or overcoming drug resistance.”

Prof Workman said the next step was to test the Hsp90 inhibitors in clinical trials on patients with aggressive, drug-resistant prostate cancer.

Prof Johann de Bono, a professor of experimental cancer medicine at the Institute of Cancer Research, said: “These drugs are already in clinical trials for several types of cancer, and I am excited that our work suggests they could also benefit men with prostate cancer who have otherwise run out of treatment options.”

Could YOU Be a BTC Good Samaritan

One of the most troubling things we here on a daily basis from cancer fighters is the lack of support from their local council, landlords or neighbours.

So it is our intention to set up a register of “BTC Good Samaritans”  across the country that are willing to offer help and support to your local cancer fighters in the name of Balls to Cancer.

Can you help someone in your area? You don’t have to give up hour after hour of your free time, but help when you can and if you can.

We need people from all over the country that are willing to do anything from simply ringing someone just to check they are OK, popping in for a coffee and helping clean up, help with shopping, gardening, even help them find people to get them to and from hospital appointments.

Are you a builder, electrician, plumber? can you offers your help? So many of our fighters have housing problems that they just cant fix themselves.

So PLEASE help us help the nations cancer fighters who are suffering in silence! Lets give them the support they need !

Email giving us your contact details address and if you have any specific areas of expertise you can offer.

Thank you in advance from #TeamBTC

It’s OK to be scared about cancer – Pete’s story

It’s ok to be scared about cancer


It really is normal to be scared about cancer. I was and I still am despite 2 encounters. Here’s what happened to me


1. Quite by chance I noticed a lump in my throat in the bathroom mirror while checking my teeth. I thought my Adam’s Apple had moved as it wasn’t central. Eventually I was sent for tests and was told that I had 2 goiters (or lumps) in my thyroid. I had no idea what that meant and so eventually looked on the internet. Bloody hell – this could be serious. After 18m of ultrasound scans and needle biopsies I was told the lumps had increased in size and it was recommended that I have the entire thyroid out. This was arranged quickly and, as they still didn’t know if it was cancer or not, bits of the thyroid were sent away for analysis. It was a hell of a surprise to be told a few weeks later that there were cancerous cells present and I then had a weekend in hospital having radium ablation treatment to kill off any remnants. All quite unpleasant and I now have to take levothyroxine every day which carries out the function of the thyroid. All in all a great concern as I’d spent 18m being told all tests were “inconclusive” – but it turned out it was cancer.


Two years of uncertainty, a fairly big operation and a weekend in hospital – yes I was bloody scared. Now I have a check every 6 months and 5 years later I’m still free of cancer in the head and neck area.


All very unpleasant and I was scared – but kept thinking about the alternative. The alternative is much worse. So, to anyone in the same situation, it’s ok to be scared – but it’s something which must be done and can be done; and it’s not painful. Also, you get a scar on your neck which is also a topic of conversation (until it fades after a year or so) and you can make up some great Frankenstein stories !!


2. Lying in the bath and, thanks to Balls to Cancer, I was having a “fumble”, and ……………what the hell is that ?? There’s something there in my scrotum which shouldn’t be there. What is that? It’s a swelling which shouldn’t be there and hasn’t been there before. Testicular cancer ???  I check the internet – it can’t be as at 62 years old I’m too old. A benefit of being 60+ at last. So self diagnosis led me to think it was varicoceles. Phew


I went to see my GP and he agreed, but to be sure sent me for an ultrasound scan. This showed it was not varicoceles so now I’m worried again. The radiologist said it might be a hernia and so I get to see a consultant urologist. He isn’t sure at all so I have another ultrasound scan to check kidneys, check for a hernia and check the left testicle again. This time the radiologist says it could be a hernia but she thinks it’s a third testicle which could have been in my abdomen for all of my life and has now descended into the scrotum. Now I’m sent for a CT scan and there’s going to be a case conference to discuss what to do, what it is, what it might be ………. CT scan shows no hernia and so I’m told by the Consultant that it’s best to have a “small” operation to remove the lump and have it tested.


Oh no, not again I thought. Just like with my thyroid they didn’t know what that was, removed it tested it and it was cancer


The operation is planned for a week later which adds to my apprehension – why so urgent ?? It takes place on a Friday afternoon and they remove two lumps and the testicle. Now I wait for the results of the tests they’re going to carry out. As I’m coming round the surgeon visits and tells me he doesn’t think it’s cancer


Ten days later I get a letter to say that the lump was a “benign fatty lump which requires no further investigation or treatment” What a relief. Logic told me it couldn’t have been cancer at my age, but nevertheless I had been very worried.


The incision wound hurts like hell and it’s recommended to take 6 – 8 weeks to recover, but that’s ok as it’s not cancer


So, 2-0 to me


It’s ok to be scared about cancer. I was, and still remain concerned that I might get it again one day. However I have great faith in the Health Service and the skill of the staff.

Skin Cancer the dangers of sunbeds

Woman shares graphic skin cancer selfies to warn of dangers of sunbeds

A woman who has suffered from skin cancer for 20 years has shared graphic selfies in a bid to warn people off using sunbeds. After undergoing 4 procedures of skin cancer treatment, this should tell a bit of what she has gone through.

The type of skin cancer a person gets is determined by where the cancer begins. If the cancer begins in skin cells called basal cells, the person has basal cell skin cancer. When cells that give our skin its color become cancerous, melanoma develops. This dermatologist NYC based can help you to diagnosis and treat any kind of skin disease. You can visit Sozo Aesthetics clinic for more detail about the scar removal.

Here you’ll see what the most common types of skin cancer can look like and who tends to develop each type.

What does skin cancer look like?

Close-up image of a basal cell carcinoma skin cancer
Basal cell carcinoma: This is the most common type of skin cancer. It looks like a flesh-colored, pearl-like bump, or pinkish patch of skin.

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)
This is the most common type of skin cancer, if you to want to help the affected ones check this Child Cancer Donation Program, every contribution no mater how small it is makes the change.

  • BCC frequently develops in people who have fair skin. People who have skin of color also get this skin cancer.
  • BCCs often look like a flesh-colored round growth, pearl-like bump, or a pinkish patch of skin.
  • BCCs usually develop after years of frequent sun exposure or indoor tanning.
  • BCCs are common on the head, neck, and arms; however, they can form anywhere on the body, including the chest, abdomen, and legs.
  • Early diagnosis and treatment for BCC are important. BCC can grow deep. Allowed to grow, it can penetrate the nerves and bones, causing damage and disfigurement.

Squamous cell carcinoma: The second most common type of skin cancer. Often looks like a red firm bump, scaly patch, or a sore that heals and then re-opens.

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the skin
SCC is the second most common type of skin cancer.

  • People who have light skin are most likely to develop SCC. This skin cancer also develops in people who have darker skin.
  • SCC often looks like a red firm bump, scaly patch, or a sore that heals and then re-opens.
  • SCC tends to form on skin that gets frequent sun exposure, such as the rim of the ear, face, neck, arms, chest, and back.
  • SCC can grow deep into the skin, causing damage and disfigurement.
  • Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent SCC from growing deep and spreading to other areas of the body.

In a Facebook post that has been shared more than 63,000 times, the 49-year-old mother of two says the cancers are the result of using sunbeds and staying out in the sun too long when she was younger.

Since her first diagnosis in 1995, Cloud, a legal assistant in Indianapolis, Indiana, has undergone four surgeries.

The most recent in September was an invasive three-hour operation to remove 23 cancer spots from her face, chest, arms and legs.

This Is Skin Cancer.

This is the result of using tanning beds when I was younger.

This is the result of having numerous sunburns as a child and teen, and not being religious about applying sunscreen, and staying out in the sun far too long as a teen and into my 20’s and even early 30’s.


As well as her pictures, she gives a detailed insight into the unseen consequence of the operations, such as not being able to chew properly, numbness, nerve damage and scars.

“I’m really hoping the thought of going to a tanning bed no longer sounds quite so attractive to you,” she concludes in her Facebook post.

Speaking to Self magazine she said that while her younger self would never share the stark pictures, her most recent surgery prompted her to document her illness in a public album.

“I’m old enough now to know this is needed,” she said.

I hear too many people say that they feel better about how they look after they go to a tanning bed or after they bake in the sun for hours on end.

Look at the pictures. This could be you.


Cloud told the magazine she is “lucky” because most of her cancer is basal cell carcinoma – the most common form.

“It’s not melanoma,” she said. “But it could have been. And I don’t want to take the chance of having melanoma. This is a hard enough battle fighting this.”

Do you know whats in your coffee??

Start your day with a coffee from one of the major chains? You could be drinking up to 25 teaspoons of sugar in one drink, according to new research.

Campaign group Action on Sugar has studied hot drinks made by big name outlets including Starbucks, Costa and Caffe Nero and found that single drinks can contain as much as 99 grams of sugar. To know more stuff about commercial coffee makers click on

Starbucks’ hot mulled grape with chai, orange and cinnamon was the worst offender, containing 25 teaspoons of sugar – more than three times the maximum adult daily intake of free sugars, which is seven teaspoons a day.

Why buy a Nespresso Machine? Speed, ease, and simplicity. Nespresso machines are fast, easy to use and clean, and simple to understand (without a ton of bells and whistles). They are also generally more affordable than an espresso machine and more space efficient. Find the best nespresso machines, as with most modern brewing tools, the heat-up on even the low range machines is less than 30 seconds, so you can easily get your brew quickly and easily.

Costa came next, with its chai latte containing 20 teaspoons, while Starbucks’ white mocha was third with 18 sugars per drink.

The group, which assessed 131 drinks, said 98 per cent of flavoured beverages would receive a ‘red’ (high) label for excessive levels of sugars per serving – with 35% containing the same amount or more sugar than a can of Coca Cola.

Across all “out-of-home hot drinks” surveyed, 55 per cent contain the equivalent, or more than, the maximum daily recommended amount of sugars.

Worst offenders

1) Starbucks’ hot mulled fruit drink (grape with chai, orange and cinnamon) venti: 25tsp

2) Costa’s chai lattee, massimo: 20 tsp

3) Starbucks‘ white chocolate mocha with whipped cream, venti: 18 tsp

4) Starbucks‘ signature hot chocolate, venti:15 tsp

5) KFC’s mocha: 15 tsp

6) Caffe Nero‘s caramelatte: 13 tsp

Kawther Hashem, registered nutritionist and researcher for Action on Sugar, said: “Coffee shop chains must immediately reduce the amount of sugar in these hot drinks, improve their labelling and stop selling the extra-large serving sizes.

“These hot flavoured drinks should be an occasional treat, not an ‘everyday’ drink. They are laden with an unbelievable amount sugar and calories and are often accompanied by a high sugar and fat snack, which is not that good for the health. Still that’s the reason is not surprising that we have the highest rate of obesity in Europe. Our advice to consumers is to have a plain hot drink or ask for your drink to contain a minimal amount of syrup, preferably sugar free, in the smallest serving size available.”

A spokesperson for Starbucks said: Earlier this year we committed to reduce added sugar in our indulgent drinks by 25% by the end of 2020. We also offer a wide variety of lighter options, sugar-free syrups and sugar-free natural sweetener and we display all nutritional information in-store and online.”

Pancreatic cancer discovery

Scientists have discovered pancreatic cancer is four separate diseases, paving the way for more accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Researchers said the findings were the launch pad to investigate new treatments because doctors currently have little insight into which will be most effective for patients.

Around 8,800 people are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK each year and just 20% of adults survive more than a year after being diagnosed.

Fewer than 5% of sufferers survive after five years and only 1% are still alive after 10 years.

The study, carried out by a team of researchers at the University of Glasgow, looked at 456 pancreatic cancer tumours and found the disease could be classified as one of four different sub-types: squamous, pancreatic progenitor, immunogenic and ADEX.

Prof Sean Grimmond, who led the study, said there were already cancer drugs available or in development that could target parts of the “damaged machinery” which led to pancreatic cancers. But like usual, there always hangs this innate problem of the misuse of drugs. This cannot be prevented, as the drugs would form an addiction. But helping you or a loved one break the bonds of addiction is what Golden Peak Retreat loves to do. Call now to speak to an advisor. Serving Denver CO and the entire U.S.

For example, some strains of the disease were associated with mutations normally linked to colon cancer or leukaemia, for which experimental drugs are being used to treat, he said.

Grimmond said: “This study demonstrates that pancreatic cancer is better considered as four separate diseases, with different survival rates, treatments and underlying genetics.

“Knowing which sub-type a patient has would allow a doctor to provide a more accurate prognosis and treatment recommendation

Dr Peter Bailey, an author of the study, added: “The standard of care for pancreatic cancer really hasn’t changed in the last 20 years. There are a number of different chemotherapeutic options but in general it’s not very selective – it’s like hitting the disease with a mallet with your eye
