They were compared with 46 patients treated with surgery only between 1939 and 1965, who were matched according to prognostic criteria. Radiation doses ranged from 4000 to 7740 cGy (median, 5664 cGy). The 5-year determinate survival rates for patients given combined therapy with stage I and II disease vs patients given surgery… CONTINUE READING
