Cancer

by

Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, 2nd edition, by Salvo and Anderson. Within the course of Dr. Johnson.

Now cancer is a serious subject and one I have been familiar with for the past 19 years. My grandmother is a 19 year cancer survivor it started out as breast cancer and she had her breast removed as a precaution. But the cancer has now spread to her bones and she is often in pain and asking me for massages. I of course have gotten Dr.’s permission to perform light massages when she is not in chemo. But knowing what strokes I can perform and how light I have to be shows me how sensitive one needs to be when massaging a cancer patient. The chapter made it quite clear the difference between benign tumors, non harmful, and malignant tumors, and metastasizing of the tumor.
