Is it possible to treat throat cancer with hydrogen peroxide while chemo has no relief ?

I have an answer about treating throat cancer with hydrogen peroxide for a friend? He has squamous cell spreading in this throat and had a surgery and he s been following a chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment for more than one month but he doesn t seem to have any relieve, instead he can hardly talk and those cells invaded other parts of the throat. He lost a lot of weight and cannot eat anymore and in order to survive he has to receive perfusion daily. I am pity for him because he is a good man and I want to help him. Please send me your reply about this problem and also a reply to my first question. Thank you! Best regards, Lidia Pascalau

Hi, treating throat cancer with hydrogen peroxide is not an option and it is used post surgery to keep the surgical field clean by gargling. Your friend has under gone surgery and now is undergoing CTRT, so must be have a T3-T4 disease and the symptoms you are describing can be because of the edema of the area in throat. The effect should slowly after the completing of treatment but till that time there needs the placement of a feeding tube through nose or stomach. Consult your doctor for that. Regards
