Abstract:
      Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) treatment of cancer has a long history, and is an important part of cancer prevention and control in China. Fuzheng, also called reinforcing healthy qi and supplementing the root, is the most fundamental principle of TCM in cancer prevention and control. In recent decades, this treatment has been thoroughly studied and widely applied, and played a crucial role in cancer prevention and treatment. With regard to the treatment of malignant tumors, Chinese medicine is mainly used in the following areas: improving symptoms, enhancing the quality of life, reducing postoperative recurrence and metastasis, increasing efficacy and decreasing toxicity together with radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatments, and to some extent prolonging the survival of advanced tumors.
