Are there good natural treatments for cancer in the nose?

Not that I know of: Not sure what you mean by "natural". Cancer of the nose is usually treated like other skin cancers and involves surgery or radiation, or combination of both and is curative in over 90% of the cases. Treatment for cancer of the nasopharynx or nasal cavity is usually treated with radiation +/- chemo. ...Read more

How cancer heals: All but the softest cancers produce tough fibrous tissue to support their cells. When radiation / chemo kill the malignant cells, the fibrous tissue stays behind but has no ability to hurt you unless some of the malignant cells can come back. This is a common source of misunderstanding, and i'm very glad you're doing well. ...Read more

What is your opinion on fluorouracil 5 and other treatments you can recommend for skin cancer on nose?

Multiple options: Non-melanoma skin cancer is usually treated by surgery. Choice of other options, 5fu, radiation, etc. Usually is based on potential cosmetic result and feasibility of surgery. A very large lesion or one that recurs might not be able to be treated surgically. A lesion on the nose might be a problem re cosmetic result and then the other options are reasonable alternatives. ...Read more

What is the treatment for cancer of the nasal cavity?

Depends on stage: Nasal cavity cancers can be very dangerous. How they are treated is largely based on how extensive - what stage- it is. Commonly a combination of surgery and radiation is needed. Biopsy is needed for diagnosis and often c/t or pet scans are used to determine the extent of the cancer. ...Read more

Adjunt only: Holistic treatments like exercise, massage, mental work, good nutrition, and comfort measures can be very valuable. Don't expect any of these, or any herbal or 'magic' treatment, to affect the course of the disease itself. ...Read more

Are there effective natural treatments for cancer?

Not really: Using excellent, balanced nutrition, grapeseed extract, and these types of homeopathic remedies certainly to not harm, but they do not cure cancer. Treatments for cancer are complex and involve several health care specialists. You can always supplement their treatments with herbal remedies, but do not use them exclusively ever. ...Read more

Please explain why people shun natural cancer treatments?

Not really effective: ..If there were, your oncologist would be applying them appropriately. Now, you can help yourself during your cancer treatments by eating a healthy diet, getting your rest, living a healthy lifestyle, and having a positive attitude. Don't let your cancer define you. Surround yourself with helpful and positive people. Don't fall victim to those who prey on the desperate. Good luck. ...Read more
