    Perhaps fluouracil + docetaxel + 2 other drugs combo, FEC-T ?  But considering what you mentioned that the treatment was already tried and had no response, then not taking it can be considered an option.  Immunotherapy is a great conventional option and if one is available, go for it. While the response I got for my metastases wasn't from conventional immunotherapy, the inner workings is pretty much the s...

      Chemo is used to name drugs so different as cytotoxins and targeted therapies... so the first thing to tell her is that every drug is different, and every patient reaction to a drug is different.  If, as expected, she is taken out of the trial, are the doctors suggesting something she had already taken in the past or something new to her, even if something old ? And while I think the best line of action is...

        That's the general trend, yes. For all the good and bad of it. And if we assume a correlation between mortality and growth rate, previously known survival rates are similar (top-3 and equal or more of 95% were prostate with 98,6%, thyroid with 98,2%, testicular at 95,1%). But besides issues with not reflecting current advancements in cancer care, those statistics hide in them the fact that those not responding to c...

          Only if stimulated. For instance, my thyrodean tumor cells requires rTSH stimulus or otherwise they don't show up, even in PET scans. And even with rTSH, it took years for them to grow enough to be discernible.  And for what I read in boards such as this, prostate tumors are also very low sugar consuming, but for thyroid that is first hand knowledge to me.  Also of notice is that PET scans usually get fal...

            Actually, there are cancers that feed so low on sugar that you can almost starve to death without harming them. So this is not only sugar-dependent, but condition-dependent.

              It's curious you saying that conversations that have yet to take place have zero credibility, since they haven't happened yet... you don't know if they end up convincing me of your views on this, for instance. I'm always happy to replace bad logic with good logic, if/when it comes, regardless of authorship of the arguments. Believing in knowledge means one isn't hold up to what was once thought, but to what the reali...

                >> You are absolutely presenting the finding of one clincial trial falsely.  >> That clinical study was about the experimental drug, not RAI. The two groups had RAI, so even though only had that drug, both had RAI, meaning the test group is twice as large for assessing RAI.  The only subtle issue, which you correctly pointed out in another topic, is that the staging criteria for suggestin...

                  Being 70 mCi means that you have somewhat less to worry about.  Just put geometry on your side: take the back right seat, which besides being somewhat less close, also puts hard matter (a seat) between you and him.  For all cancers, lungs, bones and brain (in that order, due to blood transport) are the most common locations for distant metastases. But while not all ThyCa get responses from RAI, it seems ...

                    My RAI 7 years ago was very uneventful, like what you will find most, if not all, RAI experiences in this forum. From the clothes I used in hospital, only 1 underwear and 1 t-shirt were found to be too contaminated. You don't actually feel like you had a procedure, to the point I started going close to a physicist that was measuring my radiation... he jumped back in fear for his life, and I felt like a comics charact...

                      One intriguing detail is that the only person I know that enrolled in this trial had Hurtle Cell.

                      I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 2012, had 2 hemithyroidectomies and was hopeful that I would make a full recovery. After radioactive iodine there was still traces of Thyroglobulin with no findings in PET/CT, until end of 2016, when I was diagnosed with lung metastases. Genomics testing indicate NRAS mutation, and let's see what can be done to fight this formidable foo.
                      After receiving LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) and High Dosage Vitamin D, the exponential growth curve has turned to a slow decline, showing incredible results of this very simple, cheap and effective treatment.
                      Now adding alpha-lipoic acid to the combo, but it's soon to say if it helps or not.
