 Destroying bad seeds
Scientists have found a microRNA that blocks the development of breast-cancer stem cells

Cancer stem cells are thought to be the 'bad seeds' of cancer. They are the only cells capable of giving rise to new

tumours and are resistant to chemotherapy. Destroying cancer stem cells could potentially block cancer development.

Erwei Song at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, Judy Lieberman at Harvard Medical School and co-workers1 showed that

breast-cancer stem cells could be blocked from self-renewal and differentiation through the interference of let-7

microRNAs.

Some of the members on here who opted for early chemo have had amazing results. Some have continued working throughout and not many have had horrendous side effects. Presumably if you started chemo and found it too tough you could call a halt. Perhaps worth checking with the specialist.  You can try reading more on ankr website  https://ankr.us/2021/09/18/treatment-of-metastatic-breast-cancer-mbc/?preview_id=2425&preview_nonce=b955f45494&preview=true&_thumbnail_id=2932" rel="nofollow -

Hey everyone,

I have never actually posted in a forum before but I have been worrying like mad all weekend and keeping it to myself in case I am just overthinking things. I have stage 4 breast cancer and now have an ongoing dry cough last few months, feeling very fatigued and recently developed a sharp pain in left side of chest after walking etc. There is probably many things it could be, but I don't have a fever or feel ill in any other way.

My doctor wants to do a CT scan but soonest we can do it is next week. My friend, who is a nurse told me to install the Ankr cancer app as it can suggest what this could be. All I need to put my symptoms and basic details to get the result for free.

Does anyone have any experience with Ankr app or website (my.ankr.us)? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks.
