What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

What is Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis (LCH)?

Thriving — not just surviving — begins with knowing vital information about your illness and the combination of conventional and holistic cancer treatments available to you.

Langerhans cell histiocytosis in adults is a rare disease that arises when the body produces an overabundance of Langerhans cells (histiocytes), which are a type of white blood cell that plays a significant role in fighting infection. Langerhans cells are present in the bodies of healthy men and women, but having an excess of these cells can lead to organ damage in those with LCH.

What are the Signs of Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis?

Here at New Hope Unlimited, our alternative cancer treatment aims to reverse the symptoms of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, which depends on the location of the malignancy. LCH can emerge in different areas of the body, with the most common sites being the skin and bones.

The symptoms of LCH in the skin are:

  • Flaking of the scalp.
  • Bumps or ulcers on the scalp.
  • Ulcers behind the ears, in the groin area, or under the breasts.
  • Raised, red or brown, crusted rash in the chest, abdomen, back, or groin area, which may be itchy or painful.

The symptoms of LCH in the bone may include:

  • Swelling or a mass over a bone, such as the skull, ribs, spine, pelvis, thigh bone, upper arm bone, elbow, jawbone, eye socket, or bones around the ear.
  • Pain and discomfort where there is swelling or a mass over a bone.

LCH can also affect the lymph nodes, lungs, liver, spleen, brain, and other organs. The general rule of thumb is that if you are experiencing persistent or recurrent symptoms, or perhaps something about your body feels unusual — do not hesitate to seek medical assistance.

What Caused Your Cancer?

The exact cause of Langerhans cell histiocytosis in adults is currently unknown, although the following are potential risk factors:

  • Having a family history of cancer, including LCH
  • Having a personal or family history of thyroid diseases
  • Smoking cigarettes, especially during young adulthood
  • Not being vaccinated as a child

How Do Doctors Diagnose LCH?

Due to the critical importance of early and accurate detection in improving a Langerhans cell histiocytosis prognosis, a diagnostician is likely to perform a series of examinations to produce rapid findings. According to the National Cancer Institute, diagnosing LCH necessities:

  • Medical history and physical exam
  • Neurological exam
  • Urinalysis
  • Water deprivation test
  • Complete blood count (CBC) with differential
  • Blood chemistry studies
  • Liver function test
  • BRAF gene testing
  • Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy
  • Immunohistochemistry and flow cytometry
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Bone scan
  • Radiography
  • Ultrasound
  • Endoscopy
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Pulmonary function test
