Breast cancer

Complementary and Alternative

Some women with breast cancer use complementary and alternative medicine (CAM):

* An approach is generally called complementary medicine when it is used along with standard treatment.
* An approach is called alternative medicine when it is used instead of standard treatment.

Acupuncture, massage therapy, herbal products, vitamins or special diets, visualization, meditation, and spiritual healing are types of CAM.

Many women say that CAM helps them feel better. However, some types of CAM may change the way standard treatment works. These changes could be harmful. And some types of CAM could be harmful even if used alone.
