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 PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer 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 PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer 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 Tomato and Bamboo are recommended when undergoing Carboplatin treatment for PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer. But Black Chokeberry and Butter are recommended when treatment changes to Docetaxel. 

Similarly Diosmin supplements are recommended with Carboplatin treatment for PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer. But Neem Extract supplements are recommended when treatment changes to Docetaxel. So always personalize your nutrition to your cancer gene mutations and other factors.



What is PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer?

PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer is one of the different subtypes of Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer. In this subtype of Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer, mutation or overexpression of a gene called PIK3CA is detected. The defects or aberrations or mutations in this gene can either drive cancer (tumor promoters) or remove brakes on cancer progression (tumor suppressors).  PIK3CA gene mutations are prevalent in cancer Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer. 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 PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer

Why Are Some Foods Recommended in the Diet for PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer?

Foods and Supplements contain different active ingredients which manipulate different molecular pathways relevant to cancers such as PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer. 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 PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer, cancer pathways or processes like NFKB Signaling, Cell Cycle, MYC Signaling, Apoptosis, Hypoxia, Angiogenesis, Adherens junction, WNT Beta Catenin Signaling, RAS-RAF Signaling, PI3K-AKT-MTOR Signaling, TGFB Signaling, Microtubule Dynamics, MAPK Signaling, Growth Factor Signaling, P53 Signaling, Cell Cycle Checkpoints, Cell Survival, Nutrient sensing, Extracellular Matrix Remodelling, Epithelial to Mesenchymal Transition and JAK-STAT 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 PIK3CA+ Lip and Oral Cavity Cancer depends on the type of cancer, treatments and supplements being taken (if any), age, gender, BMI, lifestyle and any genetic information available.

Get started NOW with your nutrition planning by answering questions on the name of cancer, genetic mutations, ongoing treatments and supplements, any allergies, habits, lifestyle, age group and gender.

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.
