Re: Stage 4 Survivors - Can you update us on your progress

By the way,, they are right,, an agressive cancer needs agressive treatment combined with surgery,, It was not the case even 7-10 years ago when many good doctors who were well known in the field would treat cancer with chemo alone,, It seems to me after reading hundreds of stories that the survivor...

Re: has metastasis ever been cured by just chemo?

That is a great question and the answer might be depressing,, From what i have seen and experienced , the chemo can kill off cancer cells in early stage cancers, shrink tumors , buy on its own rarely cures late stage cancer.
