Steven’s Story

Acinic Cell Cancer (carcinoma)

Steven, 46, from Scotland, was diagnosed with Acinic Cell Cancer, an unusual form of cancer that manifests within the salivary glands. His case worsened when the cancer metastasised to his lungs.

After an initial round of Treatment at Verita Life in late 2016, Steven returned to Thailand for further assessment from the clinic’s medical team.

“With all the PET scans I’ve had, this is the first time I’ve had this result. So it effectively means that the cancer is no longer active. It looks like we’ve broken the back of it. And we’re really happy about that.”

Treatment Protocol and Improvements

After returning to Verita Life, Steven had a Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan which confirmed that his tumours appeared no longer active (i.e. no FDG uptake). This was a clear indication that Steven had successfully compromised his cancer.

Steven is planning to continue the healthy lifestyle he has started to build in Verita Life.
