Choosing treatments

There are three types of treatments that you must consider in treating cancer. First are orthodox medical treatments (such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation) of which I am completely in favor when prescribed by a qualified physician and concurred with by an independent qualified second opinion. Orthodox medical treatments always come first and foremost in treating cancer. Continue Reading…

Deciding to take treatments

“Should I take chemotherapy?” Lately I have heard this question asked by callers several times. Whether it is by an 80 year old gentleman with slow growing lung cancer, by a 52 year old lady with advanced ovarian cancer or a young lady with breast cancer. The answers, with numerous qualifications, is “yes” Continue Reading…

Time is Critical

Time is a critical factor in the successful treatment of cancer. Cancer grows geometrically. In other words, 1 billion cancer cells will become 2 billion or 10 billion will become 20 billion in the same length of time it takes 1 cell to become 2. Cancer can not be detected by an x-ray, scan, or feeling until it contains at least 1 billion cells. Continue Reading…

Pain control

I had never been a pill taker. Twice I tried to quit the five-a-day pills with codeine I had to take to keep my post-lung-surgery pain in control and both times I had to go back to the pills the second day because the pain was so intolerable. Continue Reading…

Unproven Therapies

Why would anyone consider using unproven therapies? With over one million cases of cancer per year, thousands of doctors have tested every reasonable treatment on every type of cancer for many years. They know what works and what doesn’t. But those who know that only surgery, radiation or chemotherapy hold hope of treating someone unfortunate enough to be stricken with cancer are living twenty years in the past. Continue Reading…

Over 100 of the top institutions treating cancer patients in the US are now offering Multidisciplinary Second Opinions (MD2O). This is great news for newly diagnosed cancer patients. Continue Reading…

Your Help is Needed to Help Others

Cancer is an extremely complicated disease. There are at least 8 totally different methods of treating cancer, many of which are given in combinations. It is a disease for which there is generally one chance of beating and if that one chance is not successful, often there is no second chance. That is because cells grow geometrically and become an untreatable size quickly as well as Continue Reading…

How to select an institution

I receive numerous calls from cancer patients around the country asking where the best place to treat their cancer would be. That is a much more complex subject than it appears on the surface. First of all, their motivation and how serious their cancer is statistically must be considered. Continue Reading…

Gifts

In 1985 we started the R. A. Bloch Cancer Support Center on the grounds of the University of Missouri-Kansas City based on work done by Harold Benjamin at his Wellness Community. Like everything else we do, it is totally free to all participants and donations are never solicited. Early in its infancy, Raymond and Anna Lou LaTurner sought help at the Center. Continue Reading…

Prostate cancer chronology

Background:  20% of all men age 55 have prostate cancer.  By the time a man reaches the age of 70 that increases to approximately 50% and close to 100% by the age of 90.  This is known because when men die from other causes, it is discovered at the autopsy that they had prostate cancer.  Prostate cancer is extremely serious for a young man and generally is not imminently life threatening for a man over 65 unless Continue Reading…
