Cancer could be ‘CURED’ in the next 10 years, scientists reveal — thanks to new drugs

“I was initially diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2012, aged 40.

“After intensive treatment over the better part of the following year, I gradually regained a normal life.

“I was fit and well, and nearly 5 years post-diagnosis, I thought cancer was well and truly behind me.

“But in February 2018, I had a seizure.

“A scan revealed a brain tumour, and I was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer.

“I was in total shock – it was hard to accept how one minute you could believe you were cancer free, and the next be facing an incurable disease that could progress at any stage.

“I am lucky to be on a targeted therapy called palbociclib with side effects that are much easier to manage than chemotherapy, which allows me to have a relatively normal life.

“It gives me hope that my cancer may be kept in check long enough for the next advances in treatment for secondary breast cancer.

“Treating cancer as a chronic condition that can be managed on a long term basis may seem a modest ambition compared to efforts to cure it entirely, but for patients like myself this would be a significant victory.”

Can asthma be cured with a lung transplant?

lol I have asthma, but obviously I am not planning on having one, but I was just wondering...What do you think? Is it possible?? Maybe by transplanting both?? XD

Well, you would have to transplant both lungs and a significant portion of the respiratory tract, but yes, it is certainly possible.

THAT SAID, you would probably get essentially the same therapeutic effects by simply taking the medication

No, asthma is a disease of the alveoli not of the lungs.

Transplanted organs generally don't last too long - plus the operation is incredibly risky, so even if it were possible I don't think it'd be worth it.

Can Asthma be (cured OR controlled) by heating surrounding air?

My mother, 88 years old, got asthma for the past 2 years. She is affected by cold weather. Can it be cured (or controlled) by keeping the room warm, as it will help to inhale warm air ?

Air purifiers helped me rid of my asthma. Set one in your room and turn it on when you got to bed.

As you said she is affected by the cold, keeping her warm will help a great deal.
