It’s a well known fact that there is no fail-proof or definitive cancer treatment for most types of cancer. Unavailability of cancer treatment is what makes cancer so dreaded.
Cancer treatment and research
There have been improvements in cancer treatment techniques that are being used and some new cancer treatment techniques have yielded good results; however, there is nothing like a complete cure for most types of cancer.
Cancer treatment – old and new methods
Apart from these cancer treatment methods, there are other cancer treatment procedures that are being put to use quite effectively – one such cancer treatment is the use of Tamoxifen in hormone based cancer treatment.
Cancer treatment, prevention and detection
With regards to cancer detection, the most important thing is to increase your knowledge about cancer, cancer symptoms, cancer treatment etc.

Cancer Treatment Centers
The medical term for cancer is malignant neoplasm. Diagnosis of cancer typically requires obtaining a tissue specimen from the patient by a doctor. If you’re diagnosed with a form of cancer then you certainly want to contact a cancer treatment center through your doctor and obtain the treatment that is right for you. Cancer research occurs all the time. This help to enable the development of new cancer treatments. Clinical trials by treatment centers of new cancer treatments on patients is performed when warranted. Cancer treatment centers are located in the majority of metropolitan areas. The treatment centers normally provide research treatment options to participating cancer patients in the center’s research studies.
The cancer treatment centers provide professional care and support to the cancer patient. By doing some research by the patient or patient’s representative, a cancer treatment center can be located that provides traditional and non-traditional treatment as desired by the cancer patient.
All cancer treatment centers, whether public or private, wants to provide the appropriate care and support to each cancer patient and their family. Depending on the cancer patient’s situation, the treatment center can be a private facility and does not have to be a sterile hospital environment.
Treatment of Lymphoma and the Risks of Relapse
The treatment of lymphatic cancer comprises a wide variety of immunosuppressant medications as well as a series of specific cancer therapies. Patients with lymphoma are often prescribed combination treatments, receiving carefully established doses of cancer medications according to age, gender and more important, the type of lymphatic cancer and its stage of progression. Under-treatment of lymphoma has been recently identified as a significant cause of relapse among lymphoma sufferers. Although the doses of lymphatic cancer medications can be slightly adjusted over the period of administration, under-treatment of lymphatic cancer should be avoided at all costs.
Paradoxically, fast progressing Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma subtypes, as well as Hodgkin’s Disease are more curable than slower progressing lymphomas. If the treatment is delayed, prematurely stopped or prescribed in the wrong doses, the risks of relapse are considerably increased and the afflicted patients rarely respond to re-treatment.
Recent studies conducted in randomly chosen medical establishments nationwide have revealed very disturbing facts regarding the treatment of lymphoma patients: around 50 percent of patients with highly curable forms of lymphoma cancers receive considerable dose reductions during chemotherapy. The initially decided doses of medications shouldn’t be reduced unless the patients with lymphoma are confronted with severe side-effects.

This well-written book details safe, alternative cancer treatments that are obtainable NOW. It clearly explodes the myths about alternative cancer treatments and explains why non-toxic methods are often more effective than conventional toxic ones.
Dr. W. John Diamond, co-author of An Alternative Medicine Definitive Guide to Cancer, wrote: “If you want to consider using alternative and complementary medicine for yourself or a loved one’s cancer, this is the book to read first!”
Dr. Julian Whitaker, founder of the Whitaker Wellness Institute, wrote: “. . . This book gives patients and their loved ones an action plan for evaluating conventional and alternative treatments as well as offering a measurable dose of hope.”
Outsmart Your Cancer not only provides some of the best alternative treatment information on the market, but also provides the reader with chapters about other key issues for recovering from cancer as well. One of these enlightening chapters is a one-of-a-kind presentation on the dangers of hormone-blocking drugs given to men for prostate cancer and why those drugs may reduce a man’s chances for recovery, rather than improve them. The book is also the definitive source of information for the amazing liquid cancer treatment called Protocel, which has produced countless incredible recoveries over the past twenty years, many of which were achieved by people with stage four cancer who were given NO hope by conventional medicine!
An unsolicited Amazon.com reviewer wrote: “I credit Outsmart Your Cancer with the cure of my cancer in three areas: lung, tonsil and neck. I was given a 5 to 15% chance of living by a panel of oncologists. As a result of using the Protocel formula along with this book as a guide, I have survived for more than three years and now have NO evidence of cancer according to repeated CT scans!”
A written transcript of the Audio CD that comes with the paperback book is included with this Kindle Edition. The transcript includes a discussion by the author and also presents twelve ordinary people describing how they “outsmarted” their cancer using one or more of the approaches in the book. Incredible real-life cases presented in this inspiring transcript include recoveries from:
• metastasized ovarian cancer • localized prostate cancer • metastasized prostate cancer to the bones • advanced stomach cancer • bladder cancer • localized breast cancer • breast cancer after lumpectomy • metastasized breast cancer to the bones • metastasized lung cancer • childhood brain cancer • childhood leukemia and • melanoma.
And many more real-life recoveries from other types of cancer are presented in the book!
In this book, readers will learn about the top 21 alternative approaches to cancer and how to use them for best results. The bulk of the book is about non-toxic treatments available to cancer patients who want to avoid toxic treatments such as chemotherapy, but extra valuable information is also presented, such as:
