Not effective: Early cervical cancer can be cured with conventional treatment, get treated as soon as possible. Remember steve jobs, his pancreatic cancer turned incurable while he was trying alternative treatment.

What to tell me about alternative treatment cancer centers?

How they operate: They offer warmth and "spirituality / caring" in contrast to impersonal evidence-based medicine. If you get better after previous scientific rx, "it was really us who helped." if you stay sick, "we stabilized you." if you die, "if only you hadn't eaten those twinkies / had that surgery." they lie shamelessly. The only cancers they cure are the ones they diagnose themselves. Shun these people.

Look for the correct: There are proven and standard treatments to manage cancer effectively. So look for them and use them as recommended by the experts. Why look for Alternatives treatments? They can only get you into trouble and often are ineffective. So do not get into that kind of mess.

Unlikely: It is unlikely that alternative therapies on their own will cure cancer. There is no evidence that any of these therapies can actaully cure cancer. However, i'm a firm believer that alternative therapies can be complimentary and have many beneficial effects. Please talk with your oncologist about therapies you may be pursuing so they will know there are no potential conflicts with other treat.
