    Radiation (External radiation ): I am almost halfway through the treatment for follicle-center cutaneous b cell lymphoma. I really tried to find somebody with my diagnosis who had gone through this, but was unsuccessful. This treatment is voluntary for me. My hematologist-oncologist at Mayo Clinic would have just monitored my skin. I decided to have the radiation anyway because my skin has looked unattractive; it has itched; the rash was slowly spreading; and, last but not least, it is cancer. So far the treatment has been quick, painless and no side effects (yet). I only need 10 sessions and have had 4. The crazy itching has already subsided substantially, and my skin rash appears to be fading. If this continues in a positive manner, I will be sorry that I didn't pursue this sooner. I was only diagnosed a couple of months ago, but have had the skin condition for literally years.
