That is not true about massage and cancer. It very beneficial for cancer patients to have some kind of touch, even if it is  just putting hands on them or a very slow light effleurage.      There has been updated information that massage does not spread cancer. I am a massage therapy student and a RN. Nothing helps more to a person's spirit than to have someone touch them when they are ill.
