A grandmother has claimed a cancerous tumour in her breast has dramatically shrunk since she started taking cannabis oil. Lin Coxon was told she had a 33mm tumour that had invaded lymph nodes and muscle, and she would need eight rounds of chemotherapy followed by a lumpectomy and the removal of all the lymph nodes. But the grandmother-of-10 was staggered when she found out the tumour and lymph nodes had shrunk so much she has not had to undergo any medical intervention.

She said: ‘I was diagnosed on June 28 and obviously it was a major shock but I did some reading in the days that followed and saw there were reports that cannabis oil could have beneficial effects so I decided I had nothing to lose.

‘By July 24 I could not feel the tumour, before it had felt hard. With my chemotherapy due to start on August 23 I asked if I could have another scan but the hospital said no, so my GP suggested I had it done privately.

‘The doctor at the Nuffield Hospital was staggered when he saw the tumour had shrunk from 33mm to 11mm and my lymph nodes had gone from 25mm to 10mm. ‘He did a mammogram and saw the whole density had changed which was amazing news, so as it was shrinking so dramatically I spoke to my consultant and deferred the chemotherapy.
