Customer Question
Dear specialists My mom 73 year...
Dear specialists
My mom 73 year old, under went a mastectomy where she removed 2 tumors and the surrounding lymph nodes, 16 of them in which 11 had cancer cells.
A month plus later, after the surgery we did the PTscan & the results came out yesterday.
We are appealed to functional medicine and we will not undergo chemo therapy no matter what.
However my question is, as it is also something we are interested in, what are the procedures to know if cannabis treatment would work for her or not.
We live in cairo but are willing to travel.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Cannabis treatment is a palliative treatment for cancer pain for patients who are the end of life. Its doesnt cure or treat breast cancer that is metastatic to multiple lymph nodes. Treatment is chemotherapy or hormone therapy. Without this, cancer with metastasize and continue to spread
