Burning from the inside out
 
My aunt was diagnosed with Stage 3A Pancoast Tumor Lung Cancer in October. She has been doing chemo once a week and radiation 5 days a week. The burning has gotten more and more intense. She says the pain from the tumor isn't as bad, although still there, but the burning sensation has increased dramatically with no relief. She still has 2 weeks of radiation and she complains that she may not be able to tolerate much more. The burning is also in her esophagus, therefore she isn't eating or drinking. She is loosing more and more weight, she has no more to loose. Does anyone have any suggestions on any way to help her????

Re: Burning from the inside out
 
My mom was diagnosed with non-small cell, squamous cell carcinoma stage 4 lung cancer last November and when she went through radiation she had the same burning sensation. She was told to drink 100% aloe vera juice. We bought some and tried it and it did help. It didn't get rid of it completely but did make it bareable. You can find it at any health store and most drug stores. I hope this is helpful.
