Paraneoplastic Syndrome

Paraneoplastic Syndromes are a debilitating group of diseases.

The body detects cancer and defends itself by releasing antibodies, which targets healthy tissue in the brain.

In about 60 percent of people with Paraneoplastic, symptoms occur before cancer is found. Sometimes cancer is never found.

If you have any symptoms see your doctor (primary care physician) immediately as early diagnosis and treatment is key to fighting this disease.

You may need to advocate for yourself and your health with doctors and insurance. There’s a lot of educating people when you have, or someone you know has this disease.
