Past breast cancer patient with red-purple bumps/lumps on chest
I need your help.
My dad was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer a year and half ago, got it removed, but it spread into his lymphatic system. The hospital gave him three months to live, so we pulled him out of the hospital and wanted to find a cure. He did slight chemo with a vitamin C drip for a few months, but it didn't seem to help his overall health. Although the cancer might have gotten killed, he had begun to develop many different infections in his body. His legs would always swell up to twice the size because of blood clots.
In November, he began having really sharp pains in his right rib, feeling like it was bruised or even broken.. but he had never fallen or anything. In December, he began getting red-purple bumps that looked like burst blood vessels under his skin around his breast. They began to spread all over his chest, and little lumps began appearing below the skin surface. It is extremely itchy for him, and he can barely sleep through a night without having to wake up and be in pain.
The other breast now (the nipple) looks like it's infected with something inside, has a little lumps around.
We have no insurance and no money to go to an expensive hospital and get different types of scans. We have been keeping him on the healthiest diet, trying to give him herbal supplements like Tumeric, Ginger, Oregano, Cayenne Pepper, Nattokainaise (for the blood clots), Vitamin C, Selenium, Germanium, Zinc.
Please provide any input, we are trying to find a cure for him. We don't have any cancer past in our family, or any other types of diseases.
I do not have recommendation for your fathers extreme condition. He sounds very ill and would require extensive testing to find the cause and to relieve his suffering. I would also consider looking into hospice. God Bless.
