One of the most dangerous things about being diagnosed with cancer is the temptation to seek out alternative treatments instead of going the normal, conventional way. As Edrei mentioned, cancer is a disease where the treatments for it are much worse than the actual disease itself.
One of the things that really annoys me about certain cancer patients isn’t about them delaying treatment because they’re in denial. It’s when they delay treatment to find alternative cures for their cancers. I’m all for using alternative medication to alleviate the symptoms, but to ignore proven medication for something unproven?
