Cancer Survivors

Is anyone out there? Please post any helpful information.  I knew a 32yr old woman that claimed to have cured cervical cancer by using only natural vitamins & herbal supplements as prescribed by a naturopath.  She was a storytell though so I don't know how reliable she was.  Thank you.

Hi,
I think it would be best if you sought an opinion of a gynecologic oncologist. There are cervical cancers that can be cured by operation. While it is tempting to replace a treatment that has implications in terms of self-image with a pill- you may be selling yourself short on therapies without sufficient objective evidence of benefit.

Be wary that there are lots of women who may get an abnormal Pap smear and are then subsequently found to have pre-malignant disease. This pre-malignant terminology is inappropriate as some of these women do not progress into full blown cancer in their lifetimes - I'm wondering if this was the case of your 32 yo woman.

Evaluate all options as are available to you before you make any decisions.

Hi,

Hahaha, I just realized you were also the one who posted the question on empty lesions, I thought you may have stepped into the wrong forum... I think we can scrap my suggestion of the gynecologic oncologist.... but I think the notion of selling yourself short still applies...

Not selling myself short; just getting old & looking at all the options.  If I only knew then what I know now!  Thanks again
