Complementary and alternative medicine, often abbreviated CAM, may be used in the treatment of illnesses such as fallopian tube cancer. These therapies, which are generally not taught in medical school or used widely in hospitals, include herbs, vitamins, meditation, acupuncture, massage, prayer, and body-mind therapy. While these treatments are often not harmful, it is important to discuss any oral supplements that you may be taking with your doctor. Some of these remedies may cause side effects or they may interact with other medications you are taking. Also, while these therapies may be helpful, they should be used as adjuncts to, as opposed to replacements for, traditional therapy.
