    My doctor is suggesting a course of treatment that is years or decades old. Isn't there newer and better treatments available now?

      The cancer I had has a treatment developed in the 1940s. With hit or miss, they've come out with chemo creams for the very early stages. But many people aren't good candidates for a cream. I'm the first person to have the radiation treatment and live. Go see other doctors and chose what your heart tells you.

      Boy everything depends on where you are receiving treatment. We moved over 1000 miles to switch to a large renowned cancer center, best decision ever. Its your life, try to seek the best care available to you, its worth it. Oh also, even here within thirty miles the treatment can be different..

      The treatment options can be very different in the same hospital-it depends on the different doctors' speciality. I think that is wrong--A person should have all options presented to them-much like buying a car or fine jewelry.
