2.3 Malignant tumours
Acupuncture should not be used for the treatment of malignant tumours. In particular, needling at the tumour site should be prohibited. However, acupuncture may be used as a complementary measure, in combination with other treatments, for the relief of pain or other symptoms, to alleviate side-effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, and thus to improve the quality of life.
