    CT resolution is usually 1.5 mm, so 12 or 11 can't be defined as change. But, from 4 to 7.5mm is a noticeable change. The best way to compare though is having both image and tumor markers. Starting measure them now will be more telling about the nature and growth rate of whatever you might have.

      I strongly suggest getting a telemedicine/online consultation with an specialist. But to what it's worth, in some years in this forum I saw a number of people thinking they have cancer before their appointments to later find out they hadn't.  As for the diet, a good diet is always welcome but cancers, notably the slow growing ones, come from the contribution of many years of bad habits and while healthy choices...

        All cancers have mutations. Normal cells go thru apoptosis and die, cancer cell's don't. But your mutations might not have been yet targeted and so there is not a possible drug, for now. If you only did testing for the main mutations, you could try going thru a full sequencing test to at least know the mutations and follow on developments on those.

          One possible alternative is crowdfunding. This was done with at least one LDN trial, and is a possible path forward for drugs with no possible IP. Note that since you mentioned 20+ years for 3BP, it's quite likely that every IP right that existed is no more.

            In the past I've posted here about my experience with LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone), which greatly decreased the growth of my tyroid cancer metastases hosted in the lungs.  After LDN alone, I tried LDN associated with ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid). This also showed no benefit and I reported this here as well.  So, my next attempt was with DCA (Dichloroacetic Acid). DCA comes with a number of side effects, so the pr...

              Anaplastic is an aggressive form of Thyroid Cancer, so radiation is a likely option indeed. You might want to check the videos at https://thyroidworldcongress.com/videos-wctc-3-5/ for recent developments in medications, but most of them are targeted therapies that would require some knowledge of tumor mutation(s). Getting a genetic test is possibly a good thing at this point, in order to see which clinical ...

                It's kinda curious to see Thyroglobulin, a byproduct of the Thyroid producing T3 and T4, used to bring T3 and T4.

                  Some years back, I've found this resource that changed my understanding of Thyroid Cancer: https://thyroidworldcongress.com/videos-2017/ 2 years later, the next edition of the same congress is now available at: https://thyroidworldcongress.com/videos-wctc-3-5/ But I suggest beginning with the first set of videos, and select only topics of interest from the newest edition. The foundations of the first were stronge...

                    The resillience of tumors is not the same for different sizes, so you can't apply the shrinkage of one to the others.

                      In other low activity cancers like thyroid, it's possible to stimulate the tumor cells using Thyrogen. Currently my metastases only appear on PET when using Thyrogen. I don't know a prostate equivalent.

                      I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer in 2012, had 2 hemithyroidectomies and was hopeful that I would make a full recovery. After radioactive iodine there was still traces of Thyroglobulin with no findings in PET/CT, until end of 2016, when I was diagnosed with lung metastases. Genomics testing indicate NRAS mutation, and let's see what can be done to fight this formidable foo.
                      After receiving LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone) and High Dosage Vitamin D, the exponential growth curve has turned to a slow decline, showing incredible results of this very simple, cheap and effective treatment.
                      Tried adding alpha-lipoic acid to the combo, but it didn't help.
                      Now trying to add DCA (Di Chloro Acethate) to see if the helps, but LDN is already doing a good job anyways.
