Question from Chat: I had my chemo and radiation therapies 3 months back. Is there Chinese treatment for prevention of recurrence?
Answers - Raymond Chang Potentially there are herbs one can take either for bolstering the immune system or that have direct anti-cancer properties. Again the herbal formulas will depend on the individual, the characteristics of the particular tumor, how invasive or aggressive it may be, the stage, etc. But in a nutshell there certainly can be treatments appropriate for secondary prevention.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Traditional Chinese Medicine featured Raymond Chang, M.D. and moderator Beth Baughman Dupree, M.D., F.A.C.S. answering your questions about how to discuss Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with your cancer doctor.
