Individualized: Homeopaths treat the whole person, not specific diagnoses. Homeopathy is highly individualized, so 5 people with interstitial lung disease would likely require 5 different medicines. I advise your mother see a professional homeopath: http://nationalcenterforhomeopathy.Org/resources/practitioners.

Dr. Lessnau, like many doctors, is strongly biased against homeopathy. An objective evaluation of the large body of science on this subject recently conducted by the Swiss government concluded homeopathy is effective.

Yes: Back, neck and shoulder pain can be improved by a breast reduction. A breast lift is more of a cosmetic operation, but since some tissue is removed, back symptoms can improve.

Dr. Tracy Berg
General Surgery 32 years experience
Negative pressure: You can die from collapsed lung, as it progresses quickly to a tension pneumothorax. First responders, emt and trauma providers are trained to recognize and release the pressure associated with a collapsed lung, to prevent tension pneumothorax. A chest tube is inserted into the space between your lung and chest wall. The tube is put to negative pressure, so lung can re-expand.

Possibly: In the adjuvant setting a hormone blocking agent such as an ai might be used. That would be for hormone sensitve tumors. In metastatic disease the situation can be more complicated. In that case Herceptin could be used as a maintaince agent. Other drugs such as tykerb, (lapatinib) perjetta might fill this role. If you could give more details, i can be more specific.
