A friend of mine a few years ago had a Orange sized cancerous tumor on his lung. Instead on operating, The Doctors decided to shrink it with Radiation instead. I thought they were nuts at the time, but that's what they did. They never even cut him open...He just received radiation treatments and that was all. Because of the radiation sessions, It shrunk the tumor down to nothing and his body just absorbed the rest. I couldn't believe it. Today's technology is just amazing if things are caught soon enough. He is cancer free today. That was 6 years ago.
