What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is a Malignant Solitary Fibrous Tumor (SFT)?

Living a full, healthy, and happy life — not just surviving — starts with knowing vital information about your disease and the available treatment options.

Solitary fibrous tumors are growths of soft tissue cells that can form almost anywhere in the body. They most often arise in the external lining of the lungs (pleural solitary fibrous tumors), although solitary fibrous tumors have also been found in the head, neck, breast, kidney, spinal cord, prostate, and other sites.

Most solitary fibrous tumors are benign (noncancerous) with intermediate potential to become malignant (cancerous). Regardless, these slow-growing tumors may still cause life-threatening consequences.

What are the Signs and Symptoms?

Here at New Hope Unlimited, the main objective of our alternative cancer treatment is to reverse the symptoms of a malignant solitary fibrous tumor. However, it is important to know that these tumors may not cause symptoms in their early stages.

As the tumor grows and cancer progresses, the infected area may experience these symptoms:

  • A noticeable lump or swelling
  • Pain or tenderness, signaling that a tumor is pressing on nerves or muscles

If the tumor reaches a significant size and pushes on the lung, for example, it can cause chest pains, chronic coughing, and difficulty breathing. A malignant SFT also has a 15 to 20 percent chance of metastasizing (spreading) to other areas of the body.

How Do Doctors Confirm a Cancer Diagnosis?

Earlier detection leads to improved malignant solitary fibrous tumor prognosis. To evaluate the areas of concern, a doctor might employ these imaging studies and biopsies:

  • X-rays
  • Ultrasound
  • Computerized tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Surgical biopsy
  • Core needle biopsy

After receiving a malignant solitary fibrous tumor diagnosis, the next most important step is to plan your treatment.
