The Right Way of Treating Cancer

            During a shower one day you notice a lump that was not otherwise there. The lump you have identified is diagnosed as cancer. Now you need to figure out what to do. There is no absolute cure for cancer, but there are different ways to treat it. One treatment is traditional from by seeing a doctor who possibly could use radiation, chemotherapy or other drugs. Another way of treating cancer is with alternative forms of medicine by using acupuncture naturopathic and homeopathic doctors who prescribe more natural forms of healing using a combination of the two. When using the combination of the two treatment techniques, one can receive the full benefit of all available options. The medical profession should acknowledge allowing alternative medicines in conjunction with traditional medicines to ease suffering as well as prolonging the lives of cancer patients. In order to make a decision on a treatment for cancer, one must understand what cancer is and the current treatments used. Cancer starts when a cell ceases to function properly, mutates and begins to multiply rapidly. A cancer cell has an abnormal chromosome which sends ‘ the wrong ‘ message to the other parts of the cell, which causes the cell to grow rapidly as it multiplies. These multiplied cells form a lump called a malignant tumor which is cancer. “[Cancer] knows no boundaries and plays no favorites; it can be found among people of all races and ages, both rich and poor, black and white, male or female (Fine 9).” Cancer is a very serious disease many people live with. On average ” about 1.2 million people are diagnosed with [cancer] every year (Noonan A3).” Cancer is not a contagious disease; it can not be passed from one person to another. Like the statistic from above, imagine the fact that ” cancer kills more than 500,000 Americans every year -approximately one person per minute (Noonan A3).” Many people each year are killed by cancer, yet there are more who continue to live with this disease.

There are many different kinds of treatments to ease the pain and sometimes even kill cancer. The most accepted form of treatment is through traditional medicine. This includes radiation, chemotherapy, surgery and also improving one’s lifestyle to prevent future episodes of cancer. Radiation is a method that uses ” high-energy x-rays, electron beams or radioactive isotopes to kill cancer cells without exceeding safe doses to normal tissue ( Dollinger 48).” There are two different types of radiation therapy, externally and internally. When giving externally the medical profession uses Orthovoltage equipment that treats external types of cancer like skin cancer. Internally giving radiation involves one of the following treatments, Internal (Systemic ) Radiation therapy, Interstitial Radiation Therapy, Intracavitary Radiation and Intraluminal Radiation therapy. Radiation can be giving Like chemotherapy radiation therapy has similar side effects like nausea, vomiting, a burn somewhat like a suntan that tans then peels and ulcer may develop as well. Chemotherapy can cure some types of cancer. This form of therapy is given in many different ways. It can be taken orally with a capsule, pill or in liquid form. Other ways it can be taken is through a syringe into a vein, artery or the muscle. The most commonly known form of chemotherapy is given intravenously through IV drip devices. Chemotherapy is a very risky method to heal for the drugs used are so dangerous that if an unprofessional or unqualified doctor mixed the wrong dosage it would be fatal. This therapy does have some side effects. When taking chemo treatment there is a possibility of ” nausea, vomiting, hair loss, sore mouth, diarrhea and/or depressed blood counts (Dollinger 480).” Another form of treatment is surgery, to remove cancer. This involves removing cancerous or possibly cancerous cells known as tumors. Other times surgery is the only option after using chemotherapy and/or radiation treatment.
