U.K. Mom Clear of Cancer After Coughing it Up

Claire Osborn said that she is free of cancer after coughing up a tumor.

The 37-year-old mother of 6 was driving when she started feeling dryness in the back of her throat. She began coughing heavily, and hacked up a 3 quarter-inch tumor. She immediately went to her doctor and early tests revealed that she had a rare cancer.

Metastatic Adenocarcinoma.

This is a very aggressive form of cancer stemming in the back of the throat which is very hard to detect in its early stages.

At first, doctors told her she would need chemotherapy to kill the remaining cancer cells. They gave her a 50 % chance of surviving this aggressive cancer.

After telling her that she has a 50 % chance of dying, they ran a PET scan to find the lingering cancer, and it was gone.

Claire said:

 “The consultant said: ‘It appears you have coughed up your cancer.  Congratulations. I was totally flabbergasted, a coughing fit had saved my  life.”

Amazingly, there was no cancer left.

Dr. Gary Walton, the surgeon that treated Osborn, said it was rare for a patient to cough up cancer, but not impossible.

“We suspect the tumor grew on a stalk in the back of her mouth which is very difficult to detect, somehow she dislodged this and the stalk snapped and she coughed up the tumor.”

Dr. Kim, head of mouth and throat cancer, made it clear that coughing up a tumor is very rare, but even more rare is that there was no cancer left behind.

“It’s very rare that these types of tumors don’t require any treatments” Kim said.

Kim estimated that fewer than 5% of people accidentally find out that they have throat or mouth cancer.

“Usually there are subtler symptoms, like difficulty swallowing or speaking” he said.

Doctors told Claire Osborn that she is very lucky to have coughed up the cancer early. If it wasn’t detected so early, it would have spread to other organs quickly because of its aggressiveness.

Osborn wants the world to know that if you are coughing frequently, be safe and get it checked out because you never know what can be in the back of your throat.

    yes, it is amazing what the human body can do for itself.
    Its amazing thinking about all of the systems that work 24/7 in our bodies.
    Every single thing in our body plays a role in its function.
