    Do you think surgery is the best solution for a bad health problem ?

    Tumor, cancer, and some other health problems faced by the human nowadays have made the experts in health treatment busy to treat their patients. But, it seems that the modern medical systems always take the way of surgery after they failed helping the patients through other kind of treatments. Are there any other alternatives that can be taken ?

    There is the Holistic method that often helps with health issues including cancer, but each person's biological makeup is different so work with an herbalist before beginning treatment.

    It ultimately depends on the situation. I believe surgery should be a last resort to any sickness or disease. There are definitely alternatives to modern medicine, but doctors aren't taught alternatives, they have to constantly educate themselves on medicine and stay relevant with ever-changing pharmaceuticals.
    Having patients follow alternatives is risky for doctors. You have to deal with losing money and possibly losing patients. It's important for people to properly educate themselves and make the best decision for their own body. The medical system is full of red tape, you remove the red tape and we can start making people healthy instead of pumping them full of pills with countless side-effects.

    In the hands of a skilled surgeon, the removal of a tumor can be effective.

    My main reservation with respect to surgeries is always the risk of infection, which in the presence of antibiotic resistant microorganisms requires concerted treatment of very strong antibiotics. The ensuing treatment of the infection if not done properly can damage the liver and the kidneys irrepairably, at the very least.

    A mouse, injected with a known carcinogen isolates the carcinogen via tumor formation. If the mouse has a healthy immune system, the tumor dissolves in a few weeks. The human body is infinitely more powerful in this sense.

    In my opinion, the patient should be educated on all options and be allowed his own decisions regarding his treatments.
