    I was wondering about skin cancers and breast milk.

    I was just diagnosed today with a Squamous Cell carcinoma on the skin of my collar bone.

    An appointment has been made to incise it. I realise that luckily because that usually gets rid of it and that is the end of it.

    It will be a few weeks before it is removed however, and I just came across that information about the possible good effects of breast milk on cancer cells.

    I happen to be lactating (ideopathic gallactorrhea) and wondered if I should give breast milk a try anyway.
    I've used breast milk on benign skin conditions with reasonable results - by just rubbing it on.

    Of course I am wondering whether to rub it on, or drink it - the study talks about the breast milk reacting to the acids in the stomach.

    If breast milk was studied and proved to cure cancers we would have factory lactating women churning it out so it could be sold commercially and the whole world would know.

    It won't hurt you to use it as long as some quack is not pasteurizing and bottling it to be sold at exorbitant prices to make them rich quick preying on the desperations of people.

    I see you have your own personal supply.
    I hope though that you will be guided by your Dr as to what treatments that you may or may not require after your surgery.

    Good luck and best wishes.

    If you are using this to help with side effects then that's OK. If you are using to cure cancer instead of using proper treatment then that is very dangerous and a good way to let your cancer spread through your body. I seriously doubt it will interfere with any treatments as it is basically milk and human milk at that but just to be on the safe side ask your treating doctor.

    but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    Cancer patients can be very vulnerable to infection. I don't think it's a great idea to be swapping body fluids.
    Diagnosed with stage 2c papillary serous cystadenoma borderline malignancy of the ovary in 2009. Hysterectomy, omenectomy, appendectomy, debulking.
    - 2010 - laparoscopy showed inoperable recurrence, so started chemo.
    - Frontline chemo - carboplatin and cyclophosphamide, six cycles
    - Additional chemo regimens: Avastin - ten cycles; Weekly Topotecan - 4 cycles.
    - Spring 2012 developed pleural nodules. Topotecan plus Avastin - 1year.
    - April, 2014, had surgery to remove Aspergillus infection from right lung.
    - September, 2015, started on Megace because my tumors are PR positive. Stopped Megace after three months.
    - September, 2016, hospitalized for shortness of breath and back pain.
    - September, 2016, respiratory failure reversed with prednisone. Maintaining on 50 mg Prednisone per day and supplemental O2.
    - October, 2016 left hospital with no supplemental oxygen. Feeling great! Will start tapering off the prednisone Oct. 10.

    If the milk is fresh and put in a sterile container it will be OK. Drinking milk is not really swapping body fluids is is basically drinking. Straight from the breast the milk will be sterile if there is no infection in the nipple.
    You do raise an interesting point however, milk is easily contaminated and unless it is pasteurized then probably best to avoid it all together

    In this case, made by her own body too. Yes, though, avoid outside contamination.

    I realise this is an old thread. But here goes.

    I stumbled upon this thread, researching cancer online. Was also wondering if the OP think they saw any improvements on behalf of the breastmilk. Also I did som looking into the mentioned research and its seems it has come along quite a bit.
