Millions wrongly treated for 'cancer,' National Cancer Institute panel confirms

A devastating new report commissioned by the National Cancer Institute reveals that our 40-year long 'War on Cancer' has been waged against a vastly misunderstood 'enemy,' that in many cases represented no threat to human health whatsoever.

If you have been following our advocacy work on cancer, particularly in connection with the dark side of breast cancer awareness month, you know that we have been calling for the complete reclassification of some types of 'breast cancer' as benign lesions, e.g. ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), as well as pointing out repeatedly that x-ray based breast screenings are not only highly carcinogenicbut are also causing an epidemic of "overdiagnosis" and "overtreatment" in US women, with an estimated 1.3 million cases in the past 30 years alone.

This week, a National Cancer Institute commissioned panel's report published in JAMA online confirmed that we all - public and professionals alike - should stop calling low-risk lesions like DCIS and high-grade prostatic intraepithelial neoplasia (HGPIN) 'cancer.'

There are wide-reaching implications to this recommendation, including:

Millions of women in this country have been diagnosed with DCIS, and millions of men with HGPIN, and subsequently [mis]treated. Are they now to be retroactively reclassified as 'victims' of iatrogenesis, with legal recourse to seek compensation?

goes to "page can not be found". I wanted to read it becasue I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 09. I don't believe to this day I had cancer.. but I do know that getting insurance is not VERY EXPENSIVE.. so I would like to know it there's any way to fight this, knowing class actions suits are not the answer since Bush's terms, made them irrelevant to the law.

Granger, it's statements like this that piss so many people off.

"but I do know that getting insurance is not VERY EXPENSIVE.. "

I had cancer in 2003 was treated and am fine (NO CHEMO OR RADIATION).

PRIOR to Obamacare passing, my insurance company simply left the state, and there is NO insurance option for me anymore. And I'm NOT going to Join the Obama Care System. So I'm on my own like people have been for EVER.

But your IGNORANT authoritative statements about things you really haven't studied are not appreciated by those that have.

I'm fine

and here in CA you have no choice.. you join ACA or you get fined $95.00 per year.

I have studied insurance in my area, and I do have insuracne for dental and eyes, and now I'm looking at healthcare insurance and the diagnosis for breat cancer, which I had a lumpectomy (the smallest cancer, so small they could not tell me what kind).. I refused chimo and readiation and after several months refused to tomoxifin they wanted me on for 5 years.. I'm very healthy, however, if something should happen, I want to be insured.

and part of the statement made from her about them class action suits
was given by me,just reworded (repackaged)
but I have seen that more and more

If we deny truth before your very eyes,then the rest of what we have to say,is of little consequence
