Recurrence occurred several times after surgeries that were carried out every 3 months in 2 years. The patient was significantly emaciated. Herbal medicine Immune Up ® and Immuny II ® were applied since Nov. 1997. A biopsy test one month later showed improvement. Ten months later, the biopsy test showed the tumor had turned to be benign.
