Facebook debate: Ethics of cancer treatments

Is it ethically wrong to offer unproven alternative medicine to cancer patients or is it a patient’s right to full disclosure of all possible treatments?
Many don’t want to discuss
Today cancer is growing rapidly among women on a global level for various types. Some will be comfortable to discuss with others, but many won’t disclose their condition and the treatment they are undergoing with drugs. Only after completing the treatment and having the assurance from their doctors that their condition won’t relapse, then only will many share their experience.
