Maybe but Not alone


There are many supplements and traditional remedies advised to help treat or even cure cancer. Very very few have been studied to prove an actual benefit. And every type of cancer is literally a "different animal." While I often allow my patients to add an herbal supplement as a trial in addition to prescription therapy, I don't ever advise them to expect a cure from them when used alone.

No evidence


There's no evidence that soursop can cure or effectively treat any stage of any cancer, and it is not part of the standard of care management for treatment of any malignancy.

The throat cancer treatment Soursop and Cancer cure?

Answered by:

larynx; pharynx; trachea Cancer Cancer treatment Pharynx Throat Throat cancer

Proven vs unproven


By definition, "Alternative" is different than Modern Western Medicine. Generally any drug, herb, treatment, or procedure that stands up to rigorous scientific scrutiny is included in modern medicine. The problem is that many alternative practices, herbs etc do NOT stand up to scientific scrutiny and cannot be shown to work. They therefore remain "alternative". soup may comfort but not cure.

No


This is a vicious, cynical scam. The plant (seeds are worst) is actually a neurotoxin. It is poisonous to some cancer cells in culture which is no surprise (just about anything can have an effect on stuff growing in a petri dish). There's not even an animal model, and anyone who offers a human testimonial is lying -- it would have been published and a scientist's reputation made.

Yes


In general natural fruit juices without any concentrates or additives are OK and possibly good; Certain fruit extracts like grape fruit may interact with certain metabolic pathways in the liver and affect the efficacy/toxicity of cancer treatments; check with your oncologist during the treatments to make sure he/she is aware of such supplements.

Need more studies


There are some facts that annona muricata ( soursop) perhaps contains an active substance/molecules that can kill certain cancer cells. some study has demonstated some positive data in vitro -in the laboratories. However there are a lot of questions that have to be asnwered first before declaring that it can really treat cancer.

Cancer of the colon


Colon cancer (cancer of the colon) is a common cause of death due to cancer. Screening for colon cancer can help catch it early, while a cure is still possible. Eating a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, and staying active seem to help reduce your risk of getting colon cancer.

Gastric tumor


Confined to the stomach, intestinal type has a better outlook than signet ring, and MALT (lymphoma) and GIST have very favorable outlooks. Get a team to look with endoscopy, ultrasound to proble for depth and adjacent nodes,CT's to see anatomic spread, and surgery. Some are offering chemotherapy before, and even chemoradiotherapy before, most after. Good luck.
