Dr Hossami’s View on Cancer
Cancer is a result of abnormal functions within our body causing a faulty division of cells combined with a weak or malfunctioning immune system.
This disease can impact any organ in the body including our brain, breast, liver, lung etc. Due to the diverse range of origins, there are over 100 types of cancer .
In 2018, the number of newly diagnosed cancer patients jumped from 14.1 million in 2012 to 18.1 million. This established cancer as the disease of the century .
You may ask yourself how does cancer begin? The answer is, our body has billions of dividing cells and this division of cells is controlled by our entire system. At any point, this process can be disrupted and our cells can start to divide abnormally. These atypical cells will become cancerous or malignant when the faulty division occurs within the DNA of the cell. The DNA in each cell has a large number of genes which contain the instruction of how the cell will perform, divide and grow. Cancer is caused by a change (mutation) in the DNA of the gene. These changes can occur before birth (genetics) or after.
Risk factors for lifestyle (non-genetic) cancers include, but are not limited to, smoking, radiation exposure, alcohol consumption, viruses, obesity, and chronic inflammation. In a normal scenario our immune cells recognise and eliminate these mutated cells by apoptosis, a process of programmed cell death. Unfortunately, when our immune system is weak, it can no longer effectively perform this function making us prone and more susceptible to illness. Cancer, itself, can also weaken our immune system. There are various signs and symptoms of cancer depending on its type and location. Some of the signs may include
- Lump or area of thickening that can be felt under the skin
- Weight changes, including unintended loss or gain
- Skin changes, such as yellowing, darkening or redness of the skin, sores that do not heal, or changes to existing moles
- Changes in bowel or bladder habits
- Persistent cough or trouble breathing
- Difficulty swallowing
- Persistent indigestion or discomfort after eating
- Persistent, unexplained muscle or joint pain
- Persistent, unexplained fevers or night sweats
- Unexplained bleeding or bruising
Enas AbdelfatahBreast Cancer
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, it felt like the world has stopped for me. I was so devastated and desperate. I had been hopeless when I had a consultation with Dr. Hossami. That day, he gave me hope and it wasn’t false. He guided me and made me a personalized treatment plan.

In 2016 when I started my search for alternative cancer treatments, I came up with a total list of 22 clinics from all around the world (from Mexico to Thailand). After so many thorough consultations I finally shortlisted to 3 clinics and in the end, following an intensive 3-hour face-to-face consultation with Dr. Hossami in Bangkok, I was totally convinced that he was, without a doubt my best option moving forward.

Dr. Abdullah Hossami is one of the most important people in our life and these are the reasons why. When we first met Dr. Hossami on Skype whilst interviewing various destination clinics to decide on the most appropriate place to attend for a journey of healing Breast Cancer, Dr. Hossami instantly emanated Hope, sound knowledge, answers and instant consideration.
Alison GosperBreast Cancer
In November 2018 at 39 years old I was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer, absolutely devastated and in total shock at my diagnosis I could not stop thinking about my young family. It was then that I realised there were very little treatment options available to me that didn’t come with a death sentence.

Ratchaneeporn ChunhabodeeColon Cancer In July 2017, at the age of 63, I was diagnosed with a colon cancer stage 3, metastasized to the other organs in my abdomen. It was inoperable and so chemotherapy was highly recommended as the option. I did not want the chemotherapy because I know what it could do to my internal organs, immune system, and healthy cells.
