Which Cancer Diagnostic Method is the Most Harmful?
by Paul Fassa
(The Best Years in Life) It has been often reported, sometimes even within mainstream media (MSM), that some procedures meant to determine malignant cancer actually exacerbate some cancer potential situations. Among those procedures are mammograms for breast cancer and surgical biopsy for prostate cancer upon suspicions from PSA test scores, which is also considered faulty.
Slowly, the awareness of mammograms actually inducing breast cancer are surfacing in published studies. Even the inventor of the prostate PSA test, Richard J. Ablin wrote a New York Times op-ed piece in 2010 claiming a positive PSA test doesn't necessarily indicate cancer and it shouldn't be used that way.
But those potential diagnostic consequences are outdone by partially or fully removing an important hormonal gland, the thyroid, to determine if discovered ultrasound discovered are malignant cancers or not. The logic of ensuring nodules are not malignant is prudent, after all, this gland is in the throat, nearby lymph glands located in the neck, and not far from the brain.
But there's something a bit over the top with removing the thyroid gland partially, which renders it damaged and undependable at best, or removed wholly with a thyroidectomy, to determine if the thyroid is cancerous or not. These procedures do guarantee Big Pharma and its controlled physicians for having a life long customer on prescribed synthetic thyroid hormones – maybe. More on "maybe" later.
The Thyroid Cancer Epidemic is Worsened by Diagnostic Procedures
In 2011, the international media jumped on the news that the president of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. That led to her thyoidectomy, which many assumed this was the surgical answer for her cancer.
Problem was, no cancer was found. Her thyroid gland was removed to confirm whether those tiny thyroid nodules were cancerous. Okay now, no cancer, but no thyroid either. Time to enjoy the side effects from pharmaceuticals for the rest of her life.
Statistics show thyroid cancer as the
fastest growing cancer type today. The
American Cancer Society reported almost
45,000 new cases in 2010. Mainstream
medicine's solution is to remove the
thyroid after inconclusive tumor
testing. But the vast majority of
thyroidectomies are unnecessary.

The Ultrasound Guided Needle Biopsy Created a Conundrum
ultrasound guided needled biopsy testing
procedure created a dilemma. The tests
were good at finding nodules in or on
the thyroid, but were inconclusive
regarding malignancy. Absolute certainty
of malignancy is not determined until
after the thyroid is partially or wholly
Even more adventurously, Dr.Yasuhiro Ito of Japan recommended avoiding aggressive surgery until the nodules reached 10 mm. He had studiously observed that very few nodules grew significantly from first observations. Dr. Ito recommends the wait-and-see approach that a few have now adopted for PSA prostate testing.
unusual that many die of causes
unrelated to thyroid cancer with their
tiny thyroid nodules intact. Those
nodules tend to be benign or not
immediately dangerous because they are
so slow to spread or grow further even
if cancerous. In Finland, these tiny
nodules are considered normal when
discovered. So the Fins get to keep
their thyroid glands until they die of
Efforts to Minimize Thyroidectomies and Their Effects if Performed
advocate and author of several books on
thyroid and hormonal issues, Mary Shomon,
thinks the latest extension of testing
for thyroid cancer might eliminate a lot
of unnecessary thyroid removals.
that promised more on "maybe":
Dr. Jeffrey Dach (pronounced dash)
recommends natural desiccated (dried)
thyroid from pigs over the synthetic
thyroid hormones used for patients who
have had their thyroid glands removed.
This form contains both T3 and T4
hormones with some T1 and T2. Synthetic
thyroid hormones usually contain only T3
or just T4. Even if both are contained,
they tend to be less effective.
A good start could be by reading Dr. Daches' free ebooks, which you can download free here.
