Will the cancer subside naturally?

If patients diagnosed with cancer are not effectively treated, the vast majority of their conditions continue to deteriorate and eventually lead to death. However, the medical literature does record that a very small number of patients have been diagnosed with cancer without specific treatment and the cancer has disappeared or improved, so the patient has achieved "self-healing".

The most common cancers that resolve naturally are neuroblastoma, choriocarcinoma, kidney cancer, and malignant melanoma. These four types of cancer account for about half of all natural regression cancers. Once cancer has subsided naturally, it rarely recurs. Occasionally, after the original lesion of the cancer is removed, the metastatic lesion may also subside naturally.

The natural regression of cancer must meet three conditions:

① Diagnosed as malignant tumor by pathological diagnosis;

② No special treatment was given after the diagnosis;

③ Cancer lesions have indeed shrunk or disappeared.

To date, there have been few cases of cancer that have met natural regression. It is estimated that cancer patients with natural regression account for only 1/100,000 of all cancer patients, as if the chance of winning a lottery is extremely small. Therefore, patients and their families who have cancer must not expect the cancer to subside naturally and give up active treatment, so as not to swallow the bitter fruit.

The natural regression of cancer suggests that a series of changes have occurred in cancer patients, leading to changes in the biological behavior of cancer. The task of the medical scientist is to find out the cause and regularity of the spontaneous regression of cancer, and to partially or completely reverse the malignant tumor cells to normal cells. It is currently known that endocrine hormones can affect the growth of tumors. Many cancers are hormone-dependent, and about one-quarter of the spontaneous regression of cancer is related to hormones. The body's immune response to the tumor can also affect the growth of the tumor, and some anti-tumor immune preparations have achieved promising results in clinical applications. Application of differentiation inducing agents makes the malignant tumors tend to normalize again, and gene therapy is used to restore the mutated genes to normal or regulate the gene expression, thereby reversing and regressing the tumor. Although the natural natural regression of cancer occurrence is far from mature, it is believed that there will be new breakthroughs in the near future.
