Mycosis Fungoides is T-Cell Lymphoma skin cancer. Really? Because “mycosis” mean fungus and “fungoides” isn’t a word, According to the Webster Dictionary. But the word “fungoid” means fungus like. So here we have a type of skin cancer that all doctors learned about in their training, yet its very name screams FUNGUS…not CANCER!
According to doctors today, Mycosis Fungoides was erroneously named by two French Dermatologists in the 1700’s. Modern scientists scoff at the notion that this skin cancer, or any cancer for that matter, might be caused by fungus! So, I did some research on this “cancer” and I hope it will benefit everyone reading this if they or a loved one are ever diagnosed with Mycosis Fungoides. In 2002, a Neurology Journal stated that diseases like Mycosis Fungoides may be caused by “neuromycotoxins.” Mycotoxins are poisons made by certain fungi that can impregnate human tissues. One year later, in 2003, a European Dermatology Journal referred to a patient who had Mycosis Fungoides which completely reversed while taking the antifungal drug, Sporanox for 7 days. When it came back some time later, Sporanox reversed it again! All Sporanox does is kill fungal cells and not cancer cells!
Both of these papers confirm my suspicions that Mycosis Fungoides was PERFECTLY named centuries ago. Sometimes we are on our own after being diagnosed, so be a smart medical consumer and always study carefully if your new diagnosis might be linked to the often overlooked and underappreciated fungi that can…and do mimic so many human illnesses.
