Deep peri-lesion infiltrations may be sufficient if the cancer is of small dimensions. The infiltrations must be performed after local anesthesia by combined intravenous phleboclysis using 400-500 cm3 on alternate days for a month. If the mass is large it is also necessary to apply a catheter to the internal mammary artery through which the sodium bicarbonate five per cent solution can be infused directly on to the neoplasia in a six or seven days cycle.
Apart from a slight soreness there are no significant side effects. As can be noted, we are talking about harmless and quickly effective methodologies that are capable of preventing surgical intervention. These methods should be always attempted in any case, even when there is doubt as to the final result, since they give positive responses in a short time without compromising the possibility of other therapeutic approaches.
The issue becomes more complex when other organs have been metastasized involving additional therapies of the colonized tissues complicating any possible future positive outcome. In every case – even in the presence of a diffused neoplastic disease – the bicarbonate therapy always attenuates the para-neoplastic painful symptoms, thus increasing both the quantity and the quality of the life of the patient.
If the patient is uncertain about what to do or if she has a preference for partial or total surgical intervention, a back-up treatment with sodium bicarbonate administered through phlebo or mouth is always appropriate, as it is capable of preventing and countering the metastatization of other organs (brain, liver, bones), which is very frequent with this type of neoplasia.
