Alternative Bladder Cancer Treatments

Al the "therapies" that you have listed have been thoroughly debunked. None have been shown to be effective in well-designed clinical trials. Using them can cause harm and can interfere with the known remedies that your doctor has to offer.

Tread with caution

Welcome to our site but I am sorry your family needs to be here. Alternative medicine is a hard question for many reasons. The most tragic ramification of trying some alternative medicine is that it can cause many different side effects including death. Always talk to your medical team about any other type of therapy before starting it as it could also have a tragic outcome. At the worst end of the question is people who prey on people who are desperate. I once read that 10% of all websites are scams, so doing the math if you Google cancer you will get like a million hits that means that you have to look out for 100,000 bad guys. Most have no real scientific scrutiny so it is all based on faceless stories of success. So to answer your question be very very careful. NCI has some good information and advice if you are interested in complimentary and alternative options.

One year ago my father was diagnosed with T1N0M0 High Grade bladder cancer. For the past year he had sever TURBT and 3 BCG treatment sessions (6,6 and 3 BCG) but cancer is keep coming back. He was recommended to have pembrolizumab but I am thinking of combining it . or even trying first alternative medicine..

Did any of you've tried alternative treatment like soda bicarbonate, hydrogen peroxide, ozone therapy, vitamin B17 (Amygdalin) etc?

Thank you.
