What is the Cancer?
What is adult primary
primary liver cancer is a disease in which cancer (malignant) cells start
to grow in the tissues of the liver. The liver is one of the largest
organs in the body, filling the upper right side of the abdomen and
protected by the rib cage. The liver has many functions. It has an
important role in making food into energy and also filters and stores
who have hepatitis B or C (viral infections of the liver) or a disease of
the liver called cirrhosis are more likely than other people to get adult
primary liver cancer. Primary liver cancer is different from cancer that
has spread from another place in the body to the liver.
A doctor should be seen if the following symptoms appear: a hard lump just
below the rib cage on the right side where the liver has swollen,
discomfort in the upper abdomen on the right side, pain around the right
shoulder blade, or yellowing of the skin (jaundice).
there are symptoms, a doctor may order special x-rays, such as a computed
tomographic scan or a liver scan. If a lump is seen on an x-ray, a doctor
may use a needle inserted into the abdomen to remove a small amount of
tissue from the liver. This procedure is called a needle biopsy, and a
doctor usually will use an x-ray for guidance. The doctor will have the
tissue looked at under a microscope to see if there are any cancer cells.
Before the test, a patient will be given a local anesthetic (a drug that
causes loss of feeling for a short period of time) in the area so that no
pain is felt.
A doctor may also want to look at the liver with an instrument called a
laparoscope, which is a small tube-shaped instrument with a light on the
end. For this test, a small cut is made in the abdomen so that the
laparoscope can be inserted. The doctor may also take a small piece of
tissue (biopsy specimen) during the laparoscopy and look at it under the
microscope to see if there are any cancer cells. An anesthetic will be
given so no pain is felt.
A doctor may also order an examination called an angiography. During this
examination, a tube (catheter) is inserted into the main blood vessel that
takes blood to the liver. Dye is then injected through the tube so that
the blood vessels in the liver can be seen on an x-ray. Angiography can
help a doctor tell whether the cancer is primary liver cancer or cancer that has spread from another part of the body. This test is usually done
in the hospital.
blood tests (such as alpha-fetoprotein, or AFP) may also help a doctor
diagnose primary liver cancer.
chance of recovery (prognosis) and choice of treatment depend on the stage
of the cancer (whether it is just in the liver or has spread to other
places) and the patient's general state of health.
Stages of adult primary liver
adult primary liver cancer is found, more tests will be done to find out
if the cancer cells have spread to other parts of the body (staging). The
following stages are used for adult primary liver cancer:
Cancer is found only in one part of the liver, but the cancer cannot be totally
Cancer has spread through much of the liver or to other parts of the body, name
disease means that the cancer has come back (recurred) after it has been
operated. It may come back in the liver or in another part of the body.
How adult primary liver cancer is
are treatments for all patients with adult primary liver cancer. Many
kinds of treatment are used:
1-surgery (taking out the cancer in
2-radiation therapy (using high-dose x-rays to kill cancer cells)
3-chemotherapy (using drugs to kill cancer cells)
may be used to take out the cancer or to replace the liver. Resection of
the liver takes out the part of the liver where the cancer is found. A
liver transplant is the removal of the entire liver and replacement with a
healthy liver donated from someone else. Very few patients with liver
cancer are eligible for this procedure and remember the risk is quite
high. After effects and rejection are still in the studies.
may come from a machine outside the body (external-beam radiation therapy)
or from putting materials that contain radiation through thin plastic
tubes (internal radiation therapy) in the area where the cancer cells are
found. Drugs may be given with the radiation therapy to make the cancer cells more sensitive to radiation (radiosensitization).
may also be given by attaching radioactive substances to antibodies (radiolabeled
antibodies) that search out certain cells in the liver. Antibodies are
made by the body to fight germs and other harmful things; each antibody
fights specific cells. The side effects can be very drastic but could be
controlled by acupuncture and herbal medicine.
is the use of drugs to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy for liver cancer is
usually put into the body by inserting a needle into a vein or artery.
This type of chemotherapy is called a systemic treatment because the drug
enters the bloodstream, travels through the body, and can kill cancer
cells outside the liver. In another type of chemotherapy called regional
chemotherapy, a small pump containing drugs is placed in the body. The
pump puts drugs directly into the blood vessels that go to the tumor.
of the hepatic artery involves blocking the hepatic artery (the major
artery that supplies blood to the liver) and then injecting chemotherapy
drugs between the blockage and the liver, using the liver's arteries to
deliver the chemotherapy throughout the liver. There side effects is very drastic
such as total lost of hair, become very tire and dry up etc. This could well be reduce and normalize with Chinese Master's acupuncture and
a doctor removes all the cancer that can be seen at the time of the
operation, the patient may be given chemotherapy after surgery to kill any
remaining cells. Chemotherapy that is given after surgery to remove the
cancer is called adjuvant chemotherapy.
(warming the body to kill cancer cells) and biological therapy (using the
body's immune system to fight cancer) are being tested in clinical trials.
therapy is the use of a special machine to heat the body for a certain
period of time to kill cancer cells. Because cancer cells are often more
sensitive to heat than normal cells, the cancer cells die and the tumor
.Treatment by stage
for adult primary liver cancer depend on the stage of the disease the
condition of the liver, and the patient's age and general health. Standard
treatment may be considered, based on its effectiveness in patients in
past studies, or participation into a clinical trial. Many patients are
not cured with standard therapy, and some standard treatments may have
more side effects than are desired. For these reasons, clinical trials are
designed to find better ways to treat cancer patients and are based on the
most up-to-date information.
|Mr. C.K Soon (58), from Singapore suffered from Liver Cancer
File No: 2332
Mr. Soon went for operation end of March 2009 for liver cancer. During the operation, 2/3 of his liver was removed and remaining 1/3 stop functioning. After the operation, his stomach waistline increased by 300% because water cannot flow out from his body. During this time, he also had difficulty in breathing, bed-ridden and in a semi-coma state. Without any antibiotics and painkillers prescribed, he was asked to go home. For his family, there was no hope at all as they are prepared for the worse.
That same night, all the brothers and sisters from Malaysia took herbs from The TOLE and drove down to Singapore. After medication, he could sit up and stand up. After 3 weeks of medication, he has decided to come to Kuala Lumpur to seek intensive treatment at The TOLE.
On 11 June 2009, he finally came to KL. Upon arrival, he is starting to feel dizzy, nausea, tired and his left ear cannot hear. He was advised to come for acupuncture 3x per week and consume 2x herbs medication every day for the next 3 months. Mr. Soon’s final visit to The TOLE was on the 5th Sept 2009 whereby he has recovered and he went back to Singapore. After resting for another 2 months, Mr. Soon went back to work.
Exactly 1 year after his operation, he went back to the same hospital in Singapore for a medical check. The report indicates that he is now free of cancer. Despite being free from cancer, the hospital says that he must do chemotherapy. He later contacted The TOLE to seek Master’s opinion on the chemotherapy treatment. Master is strongly against chemotherapy and told him that it would be very disadvantage to his whole body and may risk his life by doing chemotherapy. Although Mr. Soon was against doing chemotherapy, he was threaten by the hospital saying that if he doesn’t do chemotherapy, cancer MAY come back. He took their advice and took chemotherapy. Mr. Soon was tortured like everybody else due to the side effects of chemotherapy and called Master for help. But he still continued and finishing the chemotherapy treatment cycle.
On 9th March 2010, Mr. Soon came back to KL to see Master for help due to deteriorating condition. Master told him that this time, it will be very difficult. He took treatment till 23 March 2010 and we sent him back to Singapore. Soon after, he passed away. Thanks to Chemotherapy.
ADULT PRIMARY LIVER CANCER
of advanced adult primary liver cancer depends on what treatment a patient
has already received, the part of the body where the cancer has come back,
whether the liver has cirrhosis, and other factors.
is a chronic disease which affects the entire body. Its pathological
features include degeneration, necrosis and regeneration of the hepatic
cells; proliferation of hepatic fibrous tissue, and disturbance of the
normal hipatic structure which lead to deformation and cirrhosis of the
liver. Than the term HEPATOCIRRHOSIS is form.
could be cure usually before the patient gets into coma. Usually it takes
about 3weeks to 6 months to cure.

Alcoholic liver disease
What is alcoholic liver disease?
Over consumption of alcohol can cause liver disease,
as well as harming many other body organs. The prevalence of alcoholic
liver disease (ALD) in a population is usually determined by measuring
death rates from alcoholic cirrhosis (in which healthy liver tissue
becomes increasingly replaced by scar tissue). These rates have increased
alarmingly in recent years. Death rates in the UK have risen by up to 88
per cent between 1974 and 1994 with the highest increase in young men aged
35-44 (7.6 deaths per year per 100,000 people). The average adult
consumption of alcohol has also increased over this period.
The amount of alcohol that can cause liver damage
seems to vary widely between individuals. But it is certain that:
Some genetically inherited susceptibility to the
harmful effects of alcohol.
Women are also believed to be more sensitive to the harmful effects of
alcohol than men.
Daily drinking, and drinking outside meal times is more harmful than only
drinking at weekends.
The more you drink the greater your risk of developing ALD.
Three main stages of ALD, although the progression
through these stages is variable. which are determined by examining a
sample of the liver under the microscope from a biopsy.
Minimal change, or fatty liver: heavy drinkers
often develop fatty change in the liver. This is not linked to
deterioration in liver function, but abnormalities may be seen in some of
the liver blood tests . Fatty liver is reversible with avoiding alcohol
and some herbal medicine, but it is the first stage in the progression to
Alcoholic hepatitis: the effects of this
condition can be mild but may also be life threatening. The blood test
will almost always be abnormal, and the patient may develop jaundice. As
with fatty liver, avoiding alcohol and some herbal medicine can reverse
the effects, but those who continue to drink heavily have a high risk of
Cirrhosis: this is the final, irreversible stage
of ALD and is characterized by scarring of the liver and development of
liver nodules. It severely affects liver function and reduces life
expectancy. The blood test are usually abnormal, there may be jaundice
(yellow coloring of the eyes and skin) and sometimes bruising or bleeding
caused by abnormalities of the blood clotting system. Complications of
so-called 'decompensated' cirrhosis may develop.
Symptoms of ALD are usually non-specific, and do not
necessarily indicate the severity of the underlying liver damage. Many
people will have vague symptoms such as fatigue, nausea and vomiting (
typically in the morning), diarrhoea or abdominal pains. Many patients,
even with advanced ALD will have no symptoms and are detected by the
finding of liver blood tests performed as part of routine health
screening, or during the investigation of other conditions.
Only in the more advanced stages of decompensated
ALD (severe alcoholic hepatitis or cirrhosis) will the sufferer present
with more specific liver-related symptoms such as jaundice, ascites (fluid
collecting in the abdomen, causing distension), haematemesis (vomiting of
blood) or encephalopathy (confusion, reduced level of awareness causing
coma). These are signs of severe liver damage and require urgent medical
Blood tests can give an idea of the degree of liver
damage but these are not accurate predictors. Ultrasound scans create an
image of the liver and surrounding organs, which helps in taking a liver
biopsy. The ultrasound scan can help to assess the severity of disease and
exclude other common causes of abnormal LFT's such as gallstones.
Liver biopsy is the most accurate test to
determine the stage of ALD present and to ensure alcohol is the cause of
the liver disease. Research has shown that in up to 20 per cent of heavy
drinkers with abnormal LFTs an alternate cause of liver disease is found
on investigation. Liver biopsies are performed under local anaesthetic,
and provide a tiny sample of the liver for analysis under the microscope.
The above investigations will rule out whether
the symptoms are caused by any of the following:
viral hepatitis, including hepatitis B and C.
haemochromatosis (an inherited disorder of iron metabolism).
Wilson's disease (an inherited disorder of copper metabolism).
autoimmune hepatitis (a liver disorder caused by the immune system
attacking the liver).
How is ALD treated?
The length of treatment for ALD depends on the stage
of the disease and the others organ's Qi lever:
Minimal change or fatty liver Two to four weeks
of intensive Liver Acupuncture and Chinese Master's special liver herbal medicine can reverse the problem.
This will depend on the severity of the alcoholic hepatitis. In mild cases
only 4 to 8 weeks of Chinese Master's intensive herbal treatment is needed. But in
acute severe alcoholic hepatitis (characterized by jaundice, easy
bruising, abnormal blood tests and sometimes the presence of ascites) It
may takes as long as 8 weeks to 25 weeks.
Cirrhosis of the liver can be 'compensated' or 'decompensated'.
Compensation implies cirrhosis without complications.
The complications that may develop include bleeding from varices (abnormal
veins that form in the gullet), ascites (accumulation of fluid in the
abdomen), jaundice and encephalopathy (confusion, reduction in conscious
level and coma).
Chinese Master's intensive medication has done years of
research on the Liver complications and it has shown very promising
