Are there other cancer treatment options?
I have Ependymoma cancer, which is a rare neurological cancer. Thankfully, it's just in my spinal cord and hasn't spread to my brain. I was on chemotherapy for a little over one year. I also had very extensive radiation. So far nothing has worked on curing me- are there any other routes that can be taken to help me? Right now I happen to not be on anything other than a " don't let this get to you" plan. Surgery is out because it is too risky to do. I wish there was something that could be done.
There are other cancer treatments available, although your personal condition will limit which ones will be of help. You may want to investigate two other options: National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) in the National Institutes of Health, which explores complementary and alternative healing practices at nccam.nih.gov or Clinicaltrials.gov. Good luck to you.
