A: some types of treatment for cancer can cause hair loss My opinion is this: It''s not the cancer that causes you to lose your hair it''s the chemo treatments that cause it to fall out. cancer does not cause you to lose your hair, chemotherapy treatments will cause you to lose your hair.

Q: 

What should a person with lung cancer do if not chemo or surgery?

A: NATURAL THERAPY! Holistic Healing is the way you want to handle this. The acetogenins in "PAW PAW" inhibit the production of ATP in the mitochondria of cells. Since cancer cells have a much faster metabolic rate than normal cell, this induces cancer cells to self-destruct. Scientific research demonstrates that "PAW PAW" extract is more effective than many chemotherapy drugs at destroying cancer cells, and yet is completely non-toxic. I don''t know but if you''re not going for chemo or surgery.. well they are few things, but I am getting a bit tired to talk about this because every time I wrote this and no body really "act" on it. so I feels a bit waste of my...


Q: 

What is the protocol for chemotherapy for colon cancer?

A: Colon cancer is typically treated first with surgical removal, then with chemotherapy if the doctor considers it necessary. (Almost 50 percent of all patients can be cured with resection alone.) The chance for a cure and the role of chemotherapy is determined by how far the tumor has invaded through the bowel wall and spread to the lymph nodes. If the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes (even one) the incidence of recurrence is higher. When the cancer is located in the rectum, radiation is often advised. Without knowing more about exactly where your cancer was located, it`s not possible to provide a specific protocol. However, for most...


Q: 

Is chemotherpy only cure for blood cancer?

A: radiation therapy..? The word chemotherapy was once used to mean any medicine for treating any disease. Even taking an Aspirin would be chemotherapy.

You might take these drugs before or after surgery, with radiation (x-ray) treatment, or you might take the drugs by themselves. cancer chemotherapy is not new. It has been helping people since the early 1950s. The chemotherapy drugs your doctor suggests have been tested again and again. Careful research shows they work. Partly because of

Q: 

What are some possible treatments of colorectal cancer?

A: Surgery, chemotherapy and molecularly targeted drugs, and radiation therapy are generally used in certain combinations to treat colorectal cancer. Which treatments are chosen depends on the stage of the cancer – how advanced it is. Surgery for Colorectal cancer The most commonly performed colon surgery is a segmental resection, which is often performed laparoscopically. In this procedure, surgeons remove the cancer, a section of normal colon on either side of the cancer, and nearby lymph nodes, and then reattach the sections of the remaining colon. Sometimes a temporary colostomy may be needed for recovery. With colostomy, the end of the...
Q: 

What Is Normal Treatment For Knee cancer?

A: There seems to be only one knee cancer, tumor. The best way, is by seeing a doctor and getting an MRI done. Otherwise, serious injuries may occur. It really depends on the type of cancer you have. cancer of the knee can be one of multiple types - but most commonly it is related to cancer of the bones around the knee. Depending on the severity, tumor removal through surgery followed by radiation or chemotherapy is the course. The normal treatment is to get some type of chemotherapy for the knee area. You need to be able to get some actual rest during this time. The therapy is very degenerating but that is the only thing that is going to work...


Q: 

Pancreatic cancer? Is it possible to cure stage IV pancreatic cancer?

A: Unfortunately, if your uncle''s cancer began in the pancreas and spread to the liver and lungs, the oncologist was way wrong. Metastatic pancreatic cancer (cancer that has spread) cannot be cured and generally does not reaspond well to chemotherapy. Treatment may help improve the quality of life and extend the life span a little, but it will not cure it. chemotherapy with gemcitabine is the standard treatment for Stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Other drugs (Xeloda, Eloxatin, Tarceva) may help shrink the tumor and extend the life expectancy somewhat, but there is still ongoing debate about how effective those drugs are. The typical life expectancy...

Q: 

Does marijuana really help cure cancer?

A: I don''t think it helps cancer but if you wanna die it''s good for that!! Marijuana does not cure cancer. It can make people more comfortable, helps with nausea and increase the appetite. And yes, doctors can prescribe a form of marijuana which comes in pill form. My husband took it for a short time when undergoing chemo. If it were a cure for cancer - and wouldn''t that be wonderful? - it would be used at once. She obviously was high and did not have her facts straight. Medicinal marijauna help cancer pts deal with the chemotherapy induced nausea, it also can help stimulate the appetite which is usually decreased r/t illness and nausea. But, no it does not cause
