Is breast cancer a morbid stage of a lung infection by Candida?
The discovery of the presence of Candida family of fungi in autopsies and analyses of some life-threatening as well as life-ending ailments has been well documented through the years.  In those reports it is often the case that Candida is described as an 'opportunistic' microbe, which somehow is an understatement and thus potentially underestimates the depth of damage that Candida can possibly wreak. For years the Candida family of fungi have more than often been given a cursory look without in-depth analysis of its exact role in those ailments where their presence were found. Were they just 'secondary visitors' which have no direct etiologic relationship with those ailments in question?

Are Candida fungi just playing non-life-threatening roles, for example 'scavenging' whatever have been laid to waste by other aggressive microbes? Is there a repeated disregard for expedient investigation on the possibility of Candida being linked to neoplastic (cancerous) conditions in cases where Candida is discovered first-hand to be etiologically linked to non-neoplastic complication in sufferers afflicted with underlying neoplastic conditions?

It is a good hypothesis to form that breast neoplasm could be spread from an infected lung direct into the breast and vice-versa, Candida being the etiologic factor.  In fact it is often the case that breast neoplasm spreads to the lungs.


Let's take an example of a report which identified Candida as the pathogen in patients who died of terminal lung infections in what is called Candida Pneumonia. The paper named Candida as an 'opportunistic' pathogen. The fact that over half of the autopsies showed lymphoma, leukemia, or other forms of cancer as underlying ailments should be enough basis to perform in-depth investigation on the possibility that the pneumonia was spread from cancer, and/or study the differentiation of the phatogens in Candida pneumonia from the pathogens in the cancer forms.

Excerpt of a report from American Journal of Roentgenology
(www.ajronline.com):
All of our patients with pulmonary Candida infections were compromised hosts. Over one-half of our patients (11 of 20) had lymphoma or leukemia as an underlying illness. Of the 20 patients, 11 were being treated with chemotherapeutic agents for their underlying illness. Four patients developed their opportunistic infection in the immediate post-operative period. The rest of our patients had other forms of cancer or other debilitating illnesses. More

The disturbing question is this:  Is there a form of a non-morbid lung infection which stealthily plants the roots of neoplasm just like a 'time-bomb' waiting to explode?  This beneficent suspicion is worth further investigation because men afflicted with breast cancer is now not uncommon.
