My son(14) was diagnosed with fibromatosis this summer, which is a rare case of tumors. They are not malignant, but they are not really benign, either. They do not metastasize, but they can act aggressively, spreading and recurring. My son had two tumors, one large one that was removed surgically, and one in his upper hip/pelvic region, which was inoperable. Because of his age, and the location of the tumors, he was not a good canidate for radiation, a common treatment for this disease. I was grateful for their wait and see aproach, unfortunately the tumor in his leg has come back. The dr. is going to speak with the surgeon, but will most likely want to prescribe Gleevec, which is supposedly very nontoxic.
My question is, do you think a naturopth could be of any help to him?
