A Simple Test For Malignancy

August 13, 2012 by  

Dear Bob,

In your book, The Forbidden Truth About Cancer,” you write on page 32, “Over 50 years ago, a urine test was developed which could easily and effectively determine the presence of malignant tumors. Many doctors in the United States and other countries used them, but they were never universally accepted…” You then list the reasons. My question is this: What is the name of the test so I can ask my doctor to perform it?


Alan B.

Dear Alan,

The test was developed in the late 1950s by a doctor named Manuel D. Navarro, M.D. The test detects the presence of human chorionic ganadotropin (HCG) in urine. It indicates the presence of cancer cells even before signs or symptoms develop. Dr. Navarro found HCG to be elevated in all types of cancers.

The test is based on a theory proposed by Dr. Howard Beard and other researchers who believed that cancer is related to a misplaced trophoblast cell that becomes malignant in a manner similar to pregnancy in that they both secrete HCG. As a consequence, a measure of the amount of HCG found in the blood or urine is also a measure of the degree of malignancy. The higher the number, the greater is the severity of the cancer. It is called the HCG urinalysis test.

Best wishes,

    I have heard that all people have cancerous or pre-cancerous cells in their body, but that for most people, the immune system prevents any real damage. If this is in fact true, then I’m not sure how such a test could do any good.

      HCG Tests are also Pregnancy tests; the amount of HCG found in pregnant women increases with gestational age. The test measures comparatively high levels of HCG in urine. In men, any level of HCG would be suspicious; more precise measures would be required to detect early cancers in men; in women, if pregnancy were ruled out, then the procedure would be of value. I do not believe it (HCG) would specify the type of cancer specifically, but it might give a physician a better idea of what and where to look for a “cancer”. It is true that a normally functioning immune system does detect and (hopefully) destroy atypical cells, which may or may not be cancerous. Infirmities of age, poor diet,
      exposure to carcinogens, heredity, and a myriad of other factors can lead to cancer. If you know what your parents, grandparents, and great grandparents died of, it might give you some clues to discuss with your physician. Treatments are improving almost daily, and will contnue, unless the government decides to take over and direct the researchers. This is ann area the government needs to stay out of, among many others!!

        It’s “Human Chorionic Gonadotropin”, not gonatropin. If your docs are like mine, they will just sneer at you if you get anything wrong when asking for a procedure or test. Really do your homework so they can’t bs you.

    If tdhey sneer at you are try and shut you down via their snobbery – go see another doctor. Your choice! I weed em out. I am no doctor by any means but, i pay for the service and i expect “good service”. They work only because we pay them – no patients, no money!
