Whether you’re a man or a woman, breast cancer is scary. There are no two ways about it. It is excruciatingly painful. The treatment protocols can be daunting. The symptoms can be overwhelming. And, the search for alternative cancer treatments can seem more like throwing darts in the dark than actually improving your health.

The good news is, with the right alternative breast cancer treatment, you can experience symptom relief, increased recovery times, and reduced chance of recurrence.

Through extensive training and experience, your integrative oncologist utilizes a shared approach to your medical records.This gives all of your providers full access to your medical history and treatment plan – providing the highest level of safety and patient-centered care. Supplemental treatment recommendations are highly personalized to your unique needs and stage of recovery.

Do You Treat Breast Cancer in Men the Same as Breast Cancer in Women?

Breast cancer in men is often overlooked, but can have the same devastating impact on a man's overall wellbeing. Surrounding yourself with a strong and supportive team can make the difference you need to survive.

Each patient’s medical situation is unique. So too are the necessary treatment protocols. While no two patients will rarely require exactly the same alternative breast cancer treatments, many of the same therapeutic techniques can benefit both men and women.

The following techniques may be helpful during each stage of the process. Looking at your current conventional treatment plan and symptoms, your naturopathic oncologist may recommend:

  • Acupuncture
  • Botanical Medicine
  • Physical Medicine
  • Clinical Nutrition
  • Lifestyle Counseling
  • Drip IV
  • B12 Injections

Common Breast Cancer Symptoms

It can be easy to overlook symptoms. Make sure you're aware of what they are so you can detect cancer early.

The earlier breast cancer is discovered, the better chance of a successful treatment. However, the key to early detection is often knowing your breasts – being familiar with your unique shape and texture. Regular mammograms and other screening tests can often help find cancer in its early stages.

Men and women suffering from breast cancer may experience some of the following symptoms:

  • Swelling of some or all of the breast
  • Irregular nipple discharge
  • Skin irritation
  • Unusual dimpling
  • Breast or nipple pain
  • Redness
  • Thickening of the skin or nipple

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should see a doctor immediately.
