    A uni student was horrified to discover her heartburn that doctors told her was from boozing too much was actually 'incurable' cancer. Georgia Ford, 20, from Stroud, Gloucestershire, said she developed a 'choking' cough last April and sickness soon after, but a GP just put this down to the amount of alcohol she was drinking and prescribed her stomach-lining tablets.

After countless trips to the doctors, Georgia was stunned when she was eventually diagnosed with a kidney cancer called papillary renal cell carcinoma in November.

    A WOMAN who broke her spine in two places and shrank by five inches was told by doctors her back pain was actually an incurable cancer. Mum-of-two Karen Smith now wants others to spot the symptoms of the rare disease to stop late diagnoses. 1Karen Smith has a rare form of blood cancerCredit: BPM Karen, 55, was diagnosed with myeloma in January 2020 - two months after a fall at work left her struggling to walk and having to sleep propped up in a chair, according to StokeonTrentLive.

Karen became so desperate she paid to see a private spinal consultant who ordered CT and MRI scans. Two days later, she was diagnosed with the rare cancer which kills 3,000 people each year in the UK....

    A NEW drug could buy months of extra life for thousands of women with incurable breast cancer. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence has approved NHS patients to get abemaciclib. 1It is estimated 2,500 to 3,000 patients are living with the specific cancer the drug combo is designed forCredit: Alamy The charity Breast Cancer Now applauded the decision and said around 3,000 women could benefit. The treatment can be used for those sufferers who have seen the disease return and spread to other parts of the body. Studies have found abemaciclib, when combined with another drug called fulvestrant, can delay worse cases by 7.6 months on average, and even give nine extra months of life. Baroness Delyth Morgan, chief executive at Breast Cancer Now, said: “This is fantastic news. “Following its worrying provisional rejection by NICE earlier this year, this decision now secures its future use on the NHS. “It brings hope to eligible women who could see this combination treatment offer them precious extra months before their disease progresses and it could even help extend their lives.”...

Don’t get me wrong, I’d rather not have this death sentence hanging over me. For four and a half years, I have lived every day in fear that it might be my last. I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer when I was 35 years old. I’d been a veggie for years, I ran all the time, I was a healthy mum of two with a busy job as a deputy headteacher. So to say I was blind-sided is an understatement. I lie awake at night panicking about leaving my kids, Hugo, now 13, and Eloise, 11, without their mum. I spend days sobbing in bed, unable to even get up. I live with this...

    Cancer is a disease that almost everyone will confront at some point in their lives, either personally or through a loved one. While some cancers may go into remission and not recur, others may never go into remission or may relapse. In some cases, patients may find themselves living with cancer as a chronic illness. As the world continues to be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s more important than ever to ensure patients receive proper care when managing a chronic cancer, like follicular lymphoma (FL).1 Having routine and open conversations with healthcare providers via telemedicine, and in-person visits when proper safety precautions are in place, can help support improved health outcomes. Treatment advances give patients with FL, and the doctors who treat them, options to help fight this debilitating cancer. Follicular lymphoma is a slow growing (indolent) and incurable blood cancer that starts in the lymphatic system, which is a system of lymph nodes found throughout the body, including the neck, underarms, chest, abdomen, and groin/pelvis.2 Of the estimated 74,000 individuals diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the United States...

    A BOY of two diagnosed with incurable cancer is poised to be the youngest in the world to get ­pioneering treatment. Parents Georgia Brecken and Lee Dalton are halfway towards raising the £500,000 they need for a last-ditch attempt to save son Stan. 6Little Stan Dalton needs life-saving treatment in Singapore The lad has undergone two bone marrow transplants on the NHS in a bid to halt the rare type of ­leukaemia that is slowly killing him — but they failed. Georgia, 32, and Lee, 34, of Carlisle, were told to “go home and make some memories” with Stan as no cure was available here. But then their consultant suggested the radical cancer therapy trials in Singapore. It was a hope the couple had to grab — even though maintenance worker Lee and full-time mum Georgia did not have the £500,000 needed for the private treatment. They started the appeal last month on fundraising website JustGiving and generous well-wishers from across the country have already donated £230,000. Former postal worker Georgia told The Sun: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support...
