getting into med school

Cancer and AIDS
Cancer treatment is complicated because in some types of cancer
there are no symptoms, and in other types symptoms may disappear
by themselves, at least temporarily. Use of an unconventional
treatment coinciding with remission (lessening of symptoms) could be
simply coincidental. There's no way of knowing, without a controlled
clinical trial, what effect the treatment had on the outcome. The
danger comes when this false security causes patients to forgo
approved treatment that has shown real benefit.
