However, due to the recognition of the high relapse rate and the fatal long-term effects, EF radiotherapy (radiation to initially involved and adjacent lymph node areas) is now being abandoned by most study groups. Instead, for favourable early stage disease, short duration chemotherapy for control of occult… CONTINUE READING
