Bronchioloaveolar Carcinoma (BAC)

Overview

BAC (Bronchioloalveolar cancer) has sometimes been called the “mystery” lung cancer. Accounting for 2% to 14% of all lung cancers, less is known about this type of cancer than other non-small cell lung cancers.

The World Health Organization has classified BAC as a type of adenocarcinoma, a form of lung cancer that is more common in non-smokers. Adenocarcinoma is the most common form of lung cancer found in women, and is often found in non-smokers. It is also the most common type of lung cancer in people under the age of 45 and the most common type of lung cancer among all Asians. One subtype, bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC), appears to be increasing in young, non-smoking women.

It develops in cells near in the small air sacs (alveoli) in the outer regions of the lungs and spreads either along the tissue that separates the alveoli, or through the airways. Unlike other forms of lung cancer that often spread to the lining of the lungs (the pleura), and other regions of the body, BAC spreads primarily within the lungs. It can appear as a single spot in the periphery of the lungs, or as scattered spots throughout the lungs. There are 2 main types of BAC: non-mucinous BAC is more common, and found more often in smokers, and mucinous BAC, which is less common and often found in non-smokers.

BAC is more likely to affect non-smokers, women, and Asians (especially eastern Asians) than other forms of lung cancer. Its incidence appears to be increasing, especially among younger non-smoking women. Lung adenocarcinomas usually begin in tissues that lie near the outer parts of the lungs, and may be present for a long time before they cause symptoms and are diagnosed.

Symptoms of BAC are similar to symptoms seen with other lung cancers, and include a persistent cough, coughing up blood (hemoptysis), and chest pain. But it has also been called the “masquerader.” It is not uncommon for BAC to be mistaken for pneumonia or other lung diseases before it is diagnosed.

Sometimes there can be no signs or symptoms in the early stages, however, symptoms develop as the disease progresses.

These can include:

  • a cough that doesn’t go away after two to three weeks
  • a long-standing cough that gets worse
  • persistent chest infections
  • coughing up blood
  • unexplained persistent breathlessness
  • unexplained persistent tiredness or lack of energy
  • unexplained persistent weight loss
  • persistent chest or shoulder pain

Less common symptoms of include:

  • changes in the appearance of your fingers, such as becoming more curved or their ends becoming larger (this is known as finger clubbing)
  • a high temperature (fever) of 38C (100.4F) or above
  • difficulty swallowing or pain when swallowing
  • wheezing
  • a hoarse voice
  • swelling of your face

Lung adenocarcinoma has been increasing in recent years, whereas another form of non-small cell lung cancer, squamous cell carcinoma, has been decreasing. It is thought by some that the addition of filters to cigarettes allows smoke to be inhaled more deeply into the lungs where adenocarcinoma occurs.

Smoking is the most common cause of lung cancer overall, but many people diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the lungs have never smoked. The most common cause in non-smokers is exposure to radon in the home. Lung adenocarcinoma is a multifactorial disease, meaning that several factors may work together to cause or prevent cancer.

Many environmental exposures can contribute to lung cancer risk in addition to smoking, and, like smoking, many of these are avoidable if we are aware of them. You can reduce your risk by doing things as simple as testing your home for radon and using an appropriate mask when working with certain chemicals. Some of the most common environmental causes of lung cancer include:

Radon

Exposure to radon in the home is the second-leading cause of lung cancer and the leading cause in non-smokers. Radon is a radioactive gas that is produced by the natural decay of uranium in the soil. It can enter homes through cracks in the foundation, around sump pumps and drains and through gaps around pipes and wires. Having been found in homes in all 50 states, the only way to know if you are safe is to test for radon. Simple do-it-yourself test kits are available at most hardware stores.

Asbestos

Exposure to asbestos is ordinarily considered an occupational exposure, but working with asbestos insulation in older homes (those built prior to 1970) can result in exposure too. Asbestos is responsible for roughly 84% of cases of mesothelioma, a cancer involving the lining of the lungs. Left alone, asbestos poses little danger, but exposure can result if it is disturbed. If you choose to remodel a home that may contain asbestos insulation, hire a certified contractor.

Air Pollution

Air pollution has been looked at as a possible risk factor for lung cancer, because there is a significant difference between the incidence of lung cancer in urban and rural areas, with lung cancer being more prevalent in urban areas. It is uncertain to what degree air pollution contributes to lung cancer in the United States, but according to the largest study to date, more than 10% of lung cancers in Europe may be secondary to air pollution.

Industrial Chemicals

As with asbestos, most exposures to cancer-causing chemicals occur in the workplace. Certain products used in the home, such as some wood strippers, contain chemicals that are associated with an increased risk of lung cancer. It is important to read labels on any of these products and take appropriate precautions as directed on the packaging.

Radiation Exposure

Exposure to medical radiation to the chest for other cancers, for example Hodgkin’s lymphoma or breast cancer, can increase the risk of lung cancer, although the benefits of treatment usually far outweigh this risk. In Japan, exposure to atomic bomb radiation was associated with an elevated risk of developing lung cancer.

Second-hand Smoke

Second-hand smoke increases the risk of lung cancer in an exposed nonsmoker two- to- three-fold times. It is currently felt to be responsible for 1.6% of lung cancers in the United States.

Occupational Causes of Lung Cancer

Occupation as a cause of lung cancer is common. It has been estimated that 13 to 29% of lung cancers in men are secondary to on-the-job exposure to chemicals and materials that increase the risk of lung cancer. Many of these exposures are preventable through awareness, and taking appropriate precautions. How Do I Know if Exposures at Work Can Raise My Risk?

Employers are required to provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS’s) on chemicals you may be exposed to at the workplace. It is important to take the time to read these, and follow any safety recommendations that are suggested. That said, only 2% of chemicals used in commerce have been studied for carcinogenicity, that is their ability to cause cancer in humans. Though this is concerning, taking basic precautions could likely lower your risk considerably. When around chemicals, wearing gloves, ensuring proper ventilation, and using an appropriate mask are paramount. It is important to note that not all masks are created equally. Some exposures may be prevented with a simple dust mask, whereas others may require the use of a respirator to prevent a potentially toxic exposure.

The following lists of substances and occupations that could place you at risk is far from exhaustive, but provides an overview of some of the more common exposures that are linked with lung cancer.

 

Occupational Substances Associated With an Increased Risk of Lung Cancer:

Diesel fumes

Natural fibers – asbestos, silica, wood dust

Metals – aluminum, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, chromium, nickel

Radon

Reactive chemicals – bis(chloromethyl) ether, mustard gas, vinyl chloride

Second-hand smoke

Solvents – benzene, toluene

Occupations Associated With an Increased Risk of Lung Cancer:

Asbestos workers

Bartenders

Ceramics

Chemists

Glass manufacturing

Painters

Printers

Masonry work

Metal work (iron and steel foundry work)

Sandblasting

Truck driving

Uranium mining

Genetics and Lung Cancer

It is well known that some cancers, such as ovarian cancer and colon cancer, run in families. Even though the role of heredity in lung cancer is not as well-known, having a family history of lung cancer does increase our risk to some degree. Hereditary lung cancer is higher in women, non-smokers and those with early onset lung cancer (lung cancer that occurs before the age of 60). Overall, it has been estimated that 1.7% of lung cancers up to the age of 68 are hereditary. Several factors are associated with hereditary lung cancer, including:

How Closely a Family Member is Related

Having a first-degree family member (parent, sibling or child) with lung cancer roughly doubles the risk of developing lung cancer. This risk is more for women and less for men and stronger in non-smokers than smokers. Having a second-degree relative (an aunt, uncle, niece or nephew) with lung cancer raises your risk by around 30%.

Smoking Status, Lung Cancer and Heredity

Smokers who develop lung cancer are less likely to have a family history than nonsmokers that develop lung cancer. That said, however, for those who have a genetic predisposition to lung cancer, smoking appears to amplify that risk.

Type of Lung Cancer and Heredity

Studies vary in the types of lung cancers that have the greatest hereditary component, but those with nonsmall cell lung cancers, especially lung adenocarcinoma are more likely to have a family history of lung cancer than those with small cell lung cancers.

A recent finding is that non-smokers with non-small cell lung cancer whose tumors have an EGFR mutation are much more likely to have a family history of lung cancer than those who have an ALK or KRAS mutation.

Race, Lung Cancer and Heredity

Blacks with first-degree relatives have a greater risk of early onset lung cancer than whites. This risk increases in smokers.

Other Cancers and Hereditary Lung Cancer

In general, having a family history of cancers other than lung cancer, does not appear to increase the risk that you will develop lung cancer. On the other side of the equation, though, those that develop more than one primary lung cancer are significantly more likely to have a genetic predisposition contributing to their cancer.

As with all diseases this did not happen overnight. The very first thing you must do is see a licensed health professional. Find a list of practitioners in your local area here

Here are some things you can discuss with your practitioner:

Health protocols

Detoxification Therapy:

  • Eliminate Candida: Click here to find out how
  • Do the Hydrogen Peroxide Protocol to strengthen the immune system:
  • Drink 3oz of Colloidal Silver, three or four times a day for 60 days www.colloidsforlife.com Silver has long been recognised as a powerful natural antibiotic.  Colloidal silver is silver that has been removed electronically from its source and then suspended in water.  It is used to treat a myriad of diseases.
  • Go on a fast to clear your system of toxic waste  www.wecarespa.com
  • Try an Enerhealth Botanicals cleanse. Click here to discover more

Hydrotherapy:

  • We recommend regular colonics to remove toxicity from the body.  Read more about colonics by clicking here.  Find a practitionerhere.
  • Most of the water that we drink is very acidic and in order to heal our bodies need a more alkaline state.  During the programme drink alkalised water, which you can buy from Real Water.

If you do the Jeff McCombs Candida Protocol you will already be avoiding all of the foods that trigger cancer.  However here are the foods to avoid at all costs so that you do not add further toxicity to your system:

  • Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, NutraSweet or Aspartame
  • Do not consume high fructose corn syrup or mono-sodium glutamate.
  • Do not drink any carbonated beverages.
  • Avoid all fast food restaurants.
  • Avoid all canned food.
  • Eliminate conventional dairy products.  The best dairy products are raw, unpasteurised and homogenised dairy from grass fed cows.  If this is unavailable, then buy organic dairy.
  • Avoid conventional beef.  The best beef is organic grass fed beef. The second best is organic meat; this includes beef, veal, lamb, chicken and turkey. Check out www.grasslandbeef.com.

Avoid all foods that are high in unhealthy saturated and trans-fats, hydrogenated and partially-hydrogenated fats and oils, margarine, and shortening. Eliminate refined white flour, which is found in the majority of foods found on a typical grocery store shelf, including bread, bagels, crackers, cakes, cookies, and other baked good, pasta. Also avoid alcohol, caffeine, simple carbohydrates, sugars and sugar products, foods that are overly spicy, and all processed and commercial “junk” food. Stay clear of all inorganic pasteurized milk and dairy products, including yogurt and cheese; best to eat only raw, organic dairy products.

Empower yourself, and choose a diet emphasizing organic whole foods, including plenty of fresh, raw fruits and vegetables, oats, whole grains, such as brown rice, quinoa and buckwheat. Include a variety of preferably soaked, nuts and seeds, especially pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Minimize your intake of red meat; though be sure to consume adequate amounts of organic, free-range poultry, bison and wild-caught fish. Eat generous quantities of both raw and lightly steamed organic vegetables and large fresh salads daily. Preferably, cook with virgin coconut butter/oil and use extra virgin olive oil, high lignin flax seed oil and hemp seed oil as condiments on veggies and as the base for your daily salad dressing. Throughout the day, drink plenty of pure, filtered water, and avoid drinking—as well as bathing, and showering in—unfiltered tap water, as tap water contains heavy metals and pesticide residues that can settle in high concentrations in the body.

The raw food diet is a food plan that can be of great benefit if you suffer from breast cancer. Using the guidelines outlined above as a base camp for a clean and healthy diet, one can then transition into a raw food diet as desired. Raw food generates rapid results because of its ability to thoroughly detoxify and liberate your body’s previously untapped energy.

The diet mainly consists of raw fruits, vegetables, and soaked and sprouted nuts and seeds, supplemented with daily consumption of fresh green juices made from a variety of vegetables such as celery, romaine lettuce, spinach, carrot, kale, parsley, and an ever rotating seasonal selection of other organic veggies. Raw foodists enjoy salads, dehydrated flax crackers, seed and nut patés, blended soups, smoothies, and marinated veggies, often mixed with soaked sea vegetables. Since little to no cooked food is consumed, the raw diet has the advantage of instantly eliminating many common allergens. No cooked wheat or wheat by-products are consumed, and generally dairy is omitted, though some might choose to eat moderate quantities of raw goat or sheep milk products, often in the form of a fermented food, such as homemade raw kefir or yogurt.

Dr Gabriel Cousins, at the Tree of Life Center, endorses the raw food plan as the ultimate healing diet, and offers 100% raw food meals at his healing retreat in Patagonia, Arizona. An important note when choosing a raw food diet: there is an issue of trade-offs. You might miss cooked foods, though you will not miss cancer. More times than not the raw food diet presents itself as an incredible tool that can be used to quickly transition from a serious health challenge into a healing process, ultimately resulting in greater health and well-being.

Supplements:

  • Take Vitamin D3 50,000-100,000 International Units a day for periods of 4 weeks at a time.
  • Wholefood supplements are the best way of ensuring your nutritional needs are met.  The best we know on the market is Kevin Trudeau’s “KT Daily” product.  You can find more details here.
  • Take an Omega 3 supplement:

Krill oil

Fish oil

Cod liver oil

Vegetarian

  • Coral Calcium – Coral calcium website

Hemp Seed Oil

  • Morter Supplements Trace Minerals
  • Selenium – an essential trace vitamin which acts as a deterrent against cancer in general.
  • Garlic – can help lower the risk of tumours in the colon, stomach, lungs and oesophagus.

Prescription and non-prescription medication:

What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking?  Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications, but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.

  • Acupuncture
  • Qigong
  • Acupressure
  • Herbs for Depressing Cancer Cells –  Tulipa edulis (Shan Ci Gu). The active ingredient in T. edulis (Shan Ci Gu) is colchicine.
  • Herbs with Anti-cancer Properties –  The herbs in this group include herbs for cleansing the body of Heat toxins such as odlenlandia (Bai Hua She She Cao), lobelia (Ban Zhi Lian), and rhizoma paridis (Qi Ye Yi Zhi Hua).
  • Herbs for eliminating Blood Stasis such as rhubarb (Da Huang), notoginseng root (Tian Qi), bugleweed (Ze Lan), and pycnostelma (Xu Chang Qing).
  • Herbs for Immunity: Immune system enhancing herbs include astragalus (Huang Qi), ligustrum seed (Nu Zhen Zi), cordyceps sinensis (Dong Chong Xia Cao), gynostemma pentapphyllum (Jiao Gu Lan), polyporus (Zhu Ling), and reishi (Ling Zhi).
  • Herbs for Preventing Alterations: Three herbal seeds have the function of preventing the alterations in breast cell genes that can lead to cancer: ligustrum seed (Nu Zhen Zi), cuscuta seed (Tu Si Zi), and lycii fruit (Gou Qi Zi).

Aromatherapy

Research now shows that massage can be very beneficial to those with cancer, specifically for managing pain and depression. The gentle massage used during an aromatherapy massage promotes relaxation and helps to eliminate toxins from the body. Even a simple hand massage can have a positive effect.

The essential oils of grapefruit (citrus paradisii), orange (citrus senensis) and lemon (citrus limonum) contain D-limonene, which has shown to have anti-tumor properties, chemotherapeutic activity and low toxicity. It is particularly beneficial for breast and colon cancer. Note that these citrus oils are photo-toxic and should not be used topically on people with skin cancer. When possible, organic essential oils should be used. These citrus oils, as well as neroli essential oil, are also antidepressants and help with anxiety. The hydrosol of neroli can be used as a body, room or linen spray. In addition to the citrus oils, other essential oils and hydrosols, which aid with killing of cancer cells include ginger (zingiber officinalis) essential oil which can be inhaled or taken internally in water, to ease nausea.

The essential oil and hydrosol of frankincense (boswellia carteri) has shown anti-cancer, antimicrobial and antioxidative activity. Frankincense can also distinguish between normal and cancerous cells and suppress cancer cell viability. Sweet fern (comptonia peregrina) and sweet gale (myrica gale) hydrosols can be combined and used topically as a compress or diluted in water and drank throughout the day. Both plants have shown to be cytotoxic (toxic to cells) against human lung and colon cancer cell lines.

Greenland moss, aka Labrador Tea (ledum greonlandicum) is one of the most powerful therapeutic hydrosols and only needs to be about 10% of the blend to be effective. It is currently in experimental stages for use with liver cancer and has shown anticancer activity against malignant lung and colon tumours.

Essential oils known to help strengthen the respiratory system include eucalyptus, rosemary, thyme, rosewood, peppermint and white fir.

Use 4 drops of essential oil per 25ml of carrier oil.

To ensure positive results, always check that the essential oil is a 100% pure plant distillation and that it comes from a reputable source.

Homeopathic Medicine

Owing to the principles behind homeopathy it is essential you see a licensed practitioner to receive your own personalised prescription.  Find your closest Homeopath here

Here are some remedies that your practitioner may suggest:

The homeopathic remedy Hansi, also known as Enercel, developed by Argentinian biologist Juan Jose Hirschmann, can be particularly helpful for many different types of cancer. Other useful homeopathic remedies include Apis mellifica, causticum, chiaphilla umbellate, clematis, lycopodium, medorrhinum, pulsatilla, sulphur, and thuja.

Herbs

Herbs that have proven to be beneficial in easing cancer symptoms include Artemisia, pokeroot, periwinkle, mistletoe (Viscum album), colchicines, hemlock, Berberis aquifolium, foxglove (Digitalis purpurea), and burdock root. Hoxsey formula (an herbal formula, developed by the late Harry Hoxsey, N.D.) is recommended, as is Essiac, a traditional cancer remedy of Native Americans. The herbal spice tumeric, which contains curcumin, an anti-cancer agent, can also be helpful, as can astragalus and maitake, a medicinal mushroom. Fennel tea can help to reduce the effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

Other useful herbs for helping to address co-factors related to cancer, such as immune deficiencies, include Cat’s claw (uno de gato), Echinacea, garlic, green tea, oregano oil, Pau d’arco, and nettle root. Milk thistle can be helpful because of its ability to detoxify the liver and improve hormone balance. Also consider Chimaphila umbellata, or pipsissewa, (an evergreen plant) horsetail, and uva ursi, which all have potent antiseptic properties. Betulinic Acid from Birch trees has been shown to block the growth of melanoma and thuja tincture has served as a successful therapy for many cancer cases, as has bromelain, phenolic antioixidants from mint, centella extract from gotu kola (hydrocotyle centella), perillyl alcohol from lavender flowers, pollen from honeybees, pearl barley (hordeum vulgare), reishi mushroom (ganoderma lucidum), shiitake mushroom (lentinula elodes), cauliflower (brassica oleracea), wax gourd (benincasa hispida), calendula (calendula officinalis), chaparral (larrea divaricata and larrea tridentate), white mulberry (morus alba), Japanese pepper (piper futokadsura), thyme (thymus serpyllum), Chinese cucumber (trichosanthes kirilowii) and stinging nettle (urtica dioica.)

Other

Juice Therapy:

Combine red cabbage, celery, and lettuce juice, and drink 8 ounces twice a day. Carrot, cucumber, beet, radish, and garlic juice can also be helpful Combine grape, black cherry and blackcurrant. Wheatgrass juice is also beneficial, as is asparagus juice and fresh apple juice. Fresh green juices are an important nutrient dense boost to the diet; create new combinations of vegetables, and discover your personal favourites.

Lifestyle:

Exercise regularly, at least three times a week for 45-60 minutes each session. If you smoke, stop, and keep away from exposure to second hand smoke. Also avoid drinking alcohol, coffee, and all products that contain caffeine. Take care to properly manage stress and reduce your overall stress levels, as stress can negatively affect healthy immune function. In addition, drink an 8-ounce glass of pure, filtered water every two hours during the day to help flush out your urinary tract and keep properly hydrated.

Biopharmaceutical Therapies:

These include alkylglycerols, anti-neoplaston therapy, hydrazine sulphate, shark cartilage and amygdalin. Each of these therapies has been developed by highly credentialed physicians and medical researchers and what they have in common is the use of nontoxic, naturally-derived compounds that rebalance the body’s biochemical functioning.

Immune Enhancement Therapies:

These are frequently used by alternative physicians to treat cancer. Consult a licensed practitioner to discuss Transfer Factor, immune nutrients from milk protein, Livingston Therapy, T/Tn Antigen Breast Cancer Vaccine, Anti-Mycoplasma Auto Vaccine, Coley’s Toxins, Pleomorphism and SANUM Remedies, Dendritic Cell Therapy.

Metabolic Therapies:

Visit a licensed practitioner to discuss Lelley’s Nutritional-Metabolic Therapy,  Gerson Therapy, Issel’s Whole Body Therapy, Insulin Potentitation Therapy.

Exercise:

  • Rebounder
  • Go for a walk outside in the sun every day for an hour.
  • Laugh every day as often as you can, as much as you can.
  • Get a magnetico sleep pad – www.magneticosleep.com

Mushrooms:

A mainstay in Chinese medicine, mushrooms help to promote health and longevity. They have an immune-boosting effect which helps reduce the risk of cancer and enhances heart health.

Soybeans:

Soybeans and other legumes contain diadzein and genistein, naturally occurring phytoestrogens which block the action of oestrogen in the body, slowing the growth of hormonally-dependent tumours. Genistein also blocks the activity of certain oncogenes (chromosomal genes believed to initiate cancer.)

Spices:

Curry powder, turmeric, garlic, ginger, cayenne pepper re anti-cancer, immune-stimulating, anti-oxidant and cholesterol-lowering and have a multitude of health-enhancing effects.

Broccoli:

Broccoli does two jobs as a cancer fighter. It contains the anti-tumour compounds found in cruciferous vegetables as well as a fair amount of folate, a B vitamin that protects cells from DNA damage.

Immune Enhancement Therapies:

Visit a licensed practitioner to discuss: Livingston Therapy, T/Tn Antigen Breast Cancer Vaccine, Anti-Mycoplasma Auto-Vaccine, Coley’s Toxins, Pleomorphism and SANUM Remedies and Dendritic Cell Therapy.

Yoga: The physical postures and breathing exercises comprising the practice of yoga have long been proven by scientific research to promote feelings of relaxation while simultaneously strengthening the body. Research conducted since the 1970s has shown that regular yoga practice not only relieves stress, and stressful emotions such as anxiety and depression, but also improves blood pressure rates and overall cardiovascular health. Yoga is also effective for reducing pain, improving gastrointestinal and respiratory function, and for improving cognitive function and enhancing sight and hearing.

Note: If you are just beginning to explore yoga, it is recommended that you initially do so under the guidance of a trained yoga instructor who can guide you to become aware of the subtleties involved in each yoga posture as well as the corresponding method of breathing.

Qigong:  Is a wonderful form of exercise, breath work and meditation to relieve stress and tension in the body.  See article section for more information about the art of qigong.
