You mean pranayama?: Pranayama is a yoga routine. It may enhance well-being and enhance personal strength but I am not aware of any proof that it cures cancer.

Yes and no: Cure for cancer depends on the type of cancer, how early it was found, whether or not it has spread to other parts of the body, how early treatment is started, the type of treatments available, how aggressive the tumor is, the skill of the treating physician (oncologist, surgeon, etc.), and the overall health of the patient being treated. Discuss these with your doctor.

When I was a kid, 2 out of 6 cancers were cured. When I was in med school, 3 out of 6 cancers were cured. Now it's 4 out of 6. Thanks MOSTLY to early detection.
