My daughter hemangiopericytoma brain. The operation was already. Radiation therapy has been already. But the tumor is not removed. Chemotherapy is not done, the doctor said that it useless. I started to give a daughter to propranolol.
My cancer is a soft tissue sarcoma called angiosarcoma that manifested in my breast. There is a clinical trial of propranolol underway in Texas with angiosarcoma patients after some remarkable results on heamangioma sarcomas in dogs!
This medicine treats not only hypertension. He treats the tumor. Benign and malignant.
Hallo Vera, I am so sorry to hear about your daughter and I'm sure that you are researching every avenue. I'm not sure if you think that Propanolol is a cancer treatment as such? It's not, it's a beta blocker that can be prescribed for high blood pressure that has some evidence to suggest that it could slow cancer down. If you google it then you will read some articles about it.
I was interested in these because I was trying several types of high blood pressure medication at the time. I am still on Propanolol and my treatment is going well. I'm not sure if it is helping or not but its controlling my high blood pressure and cannot hurt to try slowing my progression.
I should add that I only have 2 small areas of cancer and they are not in the brain. I am sorry not to give you a more definite answer and hope that your daughter responds to treatment x
Dear Stillhere! My daughter has a malignant disease of the brain. I recently learned of propranolol. Do you have information on the treatment of cancer propranolol?
When I was first diagnosed just over 5 years ago I went to my GP to ask for something to take for anxiety and was given Propranolol. Later I read something about this drug being beneficial to BC. I therefore decided I will keep taking it for as long as possible. My GP during medication check ups has asked if I still feel I need this drug and I always say yes. I did once mention what I had read but he didn't seem aware of it, and if anything seemed a bit sceptical. I tolerate the drug well and my GP said it will do no harm to continue taking it anyway, so I do & will continue to do so. Here's hooing that there is something in it x
