Medical Marijuana and Cancer, Adrenal Cortical

Adrenal cortical cancer is just one of the hundreds of types of cancer, which include breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer and lymphoma. Millions of Americans are afflicted with cancer, the nation's second-leading cause of death.

Adrenal cortical cancer is an aggressive, rare cancer.  While the exact number is unkown, diagnoses in the United States  are estimated around 300 per year. Treatment options for adrenal cortical cancer are the same as most other cancers: surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, which are often harsh and cause severe side effects and pain.

Countless medical studies show that medical marijuana is an effective treatment for symptoms of cancer as well as the side effects of harsh cancer treatments. Researchers have also found that cannabis lacks the significant or toxic side effects found in traditional medicines. THC, the main chemical component in marijuana, is a natural antiemetic that has been shown to help decrease the pain associated with many types of cancer and chemotherapy agents. THC can also help battle chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).

If you are looking to find relief from symptoms of adrenal cortical cancer and/or side effects of cancer treatments with medical cannabis, can help. Book an appointment with a local, qualified physician through today. Let us help improve your quality of life!
