Highlights

No two cancers are the same and neither should your nutrition be. When diagnosed with cancer or at risk of cancer – one immediate question is “What Should I Eat Differently Starting Now?” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid”. The answer is “It Depends”. It depends on which genetic mutations your tests identified. It depends on which cancer, which ongoing treatments and supplements. It depends on your age, weight, height, lifestyle, allergies and habits. The answer to “What Should I Eat Differently” and “Which Supplements Should I Take and Avoid” for EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC) also requires understanding of how the food and supplements included in your diet manipulate the molecular pathways which are relevant for cancer and interactions with your treatment.

Internet search to find answers will never be personalized to your cancer type such as EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC) and lifestyle conditions. Cancers are driven by biochemical pathways and therefore the answers to nutrition questions have to be based on molecular science irrespective of whether one understands it or not.  

For example foods like Cabbage and Tomato are recommended when undergoing Topotecan treatment for EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC). But Black Chokeberry and Fig are recommended when treatment changes to Paclitaxel. 

Similarly Tangerine supplements are recommended with Topotecan treatment for EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC). But Neem Extract supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Paclitaxel. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC)?

EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC) is one of the different subtypes of Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC). In this subtype, EGFR receptor is overexpressed in Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC). The defects or aberrations or mutations in this gene can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).  EGFR gene overexpression is prevalent in cancer Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC). You can visit NIH for information on the prevalence of genetic mutations across cancers. (Reference: Steven N Hart et al, Hum Mutat,. 2020)

Diet for EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC)

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC)?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC). Genetic mutations and cancer conditions cause specific molecular pathways to become disrupted. Hence, those foods and supplements are recommended which do not disrupt those molecular pathways further and instead reverse the disruption. For EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC), cancer pathways or processes like NFKB Signaling, Cell Cycle, MYC Signaling, Heat Stress Response, Apoptosis, Hypoxia, Glucocorticoid Signaling, Angiogenesis, Inflammation, Adherens junction, WNT Beta Catenin Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, Chemokine Signaling, Focal Adhesion, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, TGFB Signaling, Microtubule Dynamics, MAPK Signaling, Small Molecule Transport, Growth Factor Signaling, Cell Survival, Carbohydrate Metabolism, Nutrient sensing, Extracellular Matrix Remodelling, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition, JAK-STAT Signaling and Cytokine Signaling get disrupted. Choose those foods and supplements which contain active ingredients which cancel the molecular pathways disruption. Those supplements which interact with the treatments and disrupt the cancer molecular pathways further should be avoided.

The nutrition/diet for cancer such as EGFR+ Cervical Squamous Cell Carcinoma (CSCC) depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.

Foods to Eat After Cancer Diagnosis!

No two cancers are the same. Go beyond the common nutrition guidelines for everyone and make personalized decisions about food and supplements with confidence.


Cancer patients often have to deal with different chemotherapy side effects which affect their quality of life and look out for alternative therapies for cancer. Taking the right nutrition and supplements based on scientific considerations (avoiding guesswork and random selection) is the best natural remedy for cancer and treatment related side-effects.
