My 84 year old mother chose not to undergo chemotherapy for a 2cm breast tumor. I urged her to at least have the surgery but she was told by the PhD that the blood work lab tests she ordered showed her cancer was going away. The Phd prescribes vitamins and said they were curing her cancer. I did research and found that the AMA only approves CA tests (Cancer antigen) tests to be helpful in detecting a recurrence of cancer but has no validity in diagnosing or monitoring cancer due to the high level of false positive staining - 30%. Because of this PhD, my mother would not have the surgery as she believed the cancer to be gone as she was told. Needless to say she died a painful death by the spread of the cancer - that the tests said were not there. I would just like this woman to stop.
