I bet I can answer this question. In fact, I think my cure would work. You need a sample of any type of virus because that will be the key. The virus will infect the tumor. A virus is a bad thing like cancer. Once the tumor is infected badly, the tumor is exposed. When the tumor is gone, the virus will go to infect the immune system (Where there are some cancer cells) will kill them. When all the cancer is gone, give the patient some Antibiotics to kill the virus. That is my cure. Hope you people out there like it!

There is no way to kill the virus once you have contracted it

Epstein Barr virus is a virus caused by a type of herpes. Epstein Barr has been known to lead to hard to treat Mono, MS, and various kinds of cancer.

I'm not sure .But I will not try! It is believed that Cancer actually presents itself when there is the presence of some virus in the immune system. Epstein Barr Virus( mononucleosis virus) is linked to Leukemia. Normally after a person has Mono, the body rids itself of the Epstein Barr virus after a few years. In Leukemia patients, in many cases, the virus is still present in the immune system or "lymphatic" system. There is a direct correlation to viruses and Cancer. Many therapies today for Cancer use what are called...Immunotherapy. Helping the immune system fight the cancer with a little help. I had B Cell Lymphoma and was treated with Immunotherapy drugs for 2 years. It is gone. Not all cancers can be treated this way.
