    are their any reputable doctors that take a more realistic approach and give women options of watching these tumors or is everything...cut, chemo and radiate.

    •  Well of course there would be some who are (0+ / 0-)

      more reasonable. More holistic docs. Docs who make a point of being reasonable, patient centered, health-centered. Vs "liability centered."

      Holistic docs even have an association, the AHMA, have conferences, etc. Really great people. I've been to a number of their conferences. They write books, too. Then there are naturopaths, acupuncturists, osteopaths, etc.

      The AMA are the cutters, the alarmists. What can you do? There's always someone in a crowd who sees things negatively.    :-)
