What Everybody Ought to Know About Cancer Treatment Scams

Remember Your Doctor Is on Your Side

If you take anything from this article, please let it be this: Your doctor (and nurse, and pharmacist, and everybody else involved in your care) is on your team. They are likely recommending the exact same treatment for you that they would recommend for themselves or their loved ones. Your doctor is not in on some conspiracy to keep you sick to make himself (or drug companies) more money. If you can't accept that, then you'll never be able to trust the advice and knowledge of your doctor.
 
Also, please do not try any of these alternative cancer treatments without letting your doctor know. Your doctor might recommend against it for safety reasons. Or, in some cases, your doctor can help you monitor and measure your progress with such alternative treatments. If the treatment seems to work (or if anything unusual happens, such as dangerous side effects), your doctor can document it and report it in the medical literature so that others can benefit from your experience.
