Make decisions that make sense for YOU.

This section of The Moss Report pertains to “conventional” treatments of cancer – surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and other treatments that are prescribed by licensed medical practitioners and specialists in the United States and other countries that base their medical regulatory systems on those of the USA.

With the discussion of this topic, we include the discussion of side effects, which must always be considered in any evaluation of a treatment.

We give examples of analysis that we feel patients should use as a yardstick for their own analysis as they do their own research. It’s a minefield with potentially devastating results for allowing hype and/or peer pressure and doctor pressure to inform your decision.
