Lymphoma of Nasal Cavity: No chemo or radiation. Ten years on, doing just fine.

 

 KC was 53 year old when he was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoma of the nasal cavity. His problem started with a runny nose in 2007. His nose had a swelling.

In 2008 he had difficulty breathing and production of blood-stained phlegm. He consulted a GP who said he had an infection. Antibiotics did not help him.

KC consulted an ENT at a private hospital. CT scan showed soft tissue lesion seen occupying the left nasal cavity.

A biopsy was performed. The histology report dated 24 March 2008 indicted: Left nasal blocked for long time. Left nasal mass –  atypical lymphoid proliferation found suggestive of low grade non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. The diagnosis was later confirmed by University of Malaya as Nasal type: T-cell lymphoma.

The doctor suggested 30 sessions of radiotherapy and six cycles of chemotherapy. The doctor warned KC that without treatment his nose will be blocked, his vision will be affected and he may go deaf.

KC refused further medical treatment. He came to CA Care on 4 April 2008. He told us that he has many friends who had undergone chemotherapy and radiotherapy and they all died. He would not want to go through such treatments.

KC was started on herbs: NPC 1 and NPC2, Lymphoma 1 and 2, NPC Phlegm, Capsule A and detox Tea. He was also told to take care of his diet.

One day on the herbs, KC had more bleeding from the nose. The second day, his phlegm was yellowish.

Seven weeks on the herbs KC felt his nose was better.  There was less bleeding and production of phlegm. He could sleep better. He was happy with the progress. KC said he spend time jogging from 3 to 5 pm each day.

About five months later, on 19 September 2008, KC went back to see the doctor who examined him earlier. A nasal endoscopy was done. The doctor told him it was good and there was nothing inside his nose anymore. KC came to our center on 28 September 2008 to inform us of this good news.

I asked him: Did you go and see the same doctor who examined earlier? KC confirmed that it was same ENT who did the biopsy for him.

Since then KC is well and fine.

KC does not understand much English and Hokkien. I need an interpreter to communicate with him. My question to him: How are you doing? Are you okay? He would reply: Ok, ok. No problem. I can eat, can sleep well and can go anywhere I like. 

Fast forward to November 2018 — ten years later. KC came to our centre. He is doing okay. No problem.

A few years ago, KC’s brother was also diagnosed with nose cancer. KC brought his brother to see us. Unfortunately his brother did not believe in herbs. He opted for chemotherapy and radiotherapy. He died some months later.  

Questions to Ponder

  • What could have happen if KC were to undergo chemotherapy and radiotherapy as suggested by the doctor?
  • It has been TEN years now, and KC is doing extremely well. Is the taking of herbs and changing of diet not a proven healing method?
  • KC’s brother also had nose cancer but opted for chemo and radiation. He knew first hand that KC was doing well on our therapy. Why did he not follow KC? Is it because following our therapy means he cannot eat anything he likes?
