My heart and prayers go out to you and your mother. After I read your thread......what came to my mind first was...Micheal Douglas.....he did have throat cancer...and he was at a high stage of it too when he found out...and he did recover....so there is hope. I suggest doing some research about what treatments and things he did during his time of cancer treatments and recovery.
I will (of course) do some research too. I will let you know what I find.

My mother was just diagnosed with esophageal cancer this monday. I have not heard of too many success stories for recovery, but since this is ATS I know members can share much needed advice with me as I look to help with her treatments.
We live outside of Seattle and she just had a CT scan along with bloodwork to determine the stage of the cancer. I know the tumor is 4cm, but this is all we know as of now. She is scheduled to have more tests this coming week.
Can anyone provide advice as to how to combat this cancer both traditionally and/or with alternative methods?
Id be greatful for any advice.

In all do respect, please stay away from untried/unproven/hyped up therapies. Unless your family member is taking part in a clinical trial of something new... and is being treated by professionals.
There are plenty of people who make some wild assertions about cancer cures, but in all reality, it is a tough thing to fight and there isn't anything out there that will make it magically go away (yet).
Please use this time to appreciate your relationship with your family member and offer the best support you can.
