Less is more in Node-Negative Nasopharyngeal Cancer

Pooled analysis of four retrospective studies showed no significant difference in nodal recurrence in node-negative nasopharyngeal cancer, whether in-field or out-of-field recurrence. There was also no significant difference in terms of 5-year distant metastasis–free and overall survival

An ironic truism in conventional cancer therapy is the less therapy and toxicity you expose yourself to the healthier you are- meaning the stronger you are to fight your cancer. The study linked and excerpted below explains that radiating only the upper neck region of the NSP cancer patient translates into the same five year survival rates as whole-neck radiation. In short, less is more in NSP cancer.

I am a cancer survivor and cancer coach. I work with cancer patients and survivors to research and provide conventional (FDA approved) and evidence-based non-conventional therapies for their type and stage of cancer.

An example of an evidence-based non-conventional cancer might be something like resveratrol. Studies show that resveritrol is synergistic with radiation in cancer patients. Radiation therapy can zap your cancer but can also cause short, long-term and late stage side effects.

As your cancer coach I would recommend that you take resveritrol before undergoing radiation therapy for NSP cancer.

I am a cancer survivor and cancer coach. I take Life Extension Optimized Resveritrol. This brand has been evaluated and approved by Consumerlab.com for purity and efficacy.

Have you been diagnosed with NSP cancer? Please scroll down the page, post a question or comment and I will reply to you ASAP.

Thank you,

Evidence on Effectiveness of Upper Neck Irradiation Versus Whole Neck Irradiation as Elective Neck Irradiation in Node-Negative Nasopharyngeal Cancer: A Meta-Analysis

“Purpose-Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a central tumor with a rich lymphatic network and a propensity for bilateral cervical lymph node metastasis. There is an orderly pattern of lymph node involvement in NPC. There is no current standard for prophylactic neck irradiation in node-negative or limited retropharyngeal (RP) node–positive NPC. This study aims to synthesize the current evidence on upper neck irradiation (UNI) versus whole neck irradiation (WNI) as prophylactic neck irradiation in node-negative or limited RP node–positive NPC…
