About

Bio

Dr. Levitt completed his medical school and residency training at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. He studied postmodern philosophy and creative writing in undergraduate studies which have lead him to his passion for caring for oncology patients. After developing the first image guidance program to treat prostate cancer in Denvwr, CO where he was in multispeciality oncology group practice, Dr. Levitt moved with his wife to central Florida to help build a world class cancer center debuting many of the technologies still considered cutting edge in his field. He lectured for Varian medical systems on the use of image guidance techniques and both cranial as well as extra cranial stereotactic radiosurgery. He moved back to Atlanta with his wife and three child where he developed the first integrative oncology program on Atlanta.

Cumulative &delayed: if a patient is going through fractionated radiation therapy during which they receive daily low dose treatments then typically it is the same amount delivered every day but the effects are cumulative on your normal body and thus side effects can worsen the longer you are treated for. The effects are experienced in a delayed manner so your body may not have side effects for the first 1-2 weeks.

Microscopic residual: Depending on what type/stage of tumor (possibly some other predicting features as well) some tumors may leave behind microscopic cells which are undetectable by current medical testing (bloodwork or imaging). Even just one of these cells may grow back into a tumor and therefore additional treatment (chemotherapy/radiation)after surgery may be needed to help 'clean up' residual microscopic cells.

Not likely: Sounds mostly like an allergic reaction. While some chemotherapy agents can causes these types of side effects, if you do not already have cancer, then the above symptoms are far more likely to have a benign cause. If they persist check with your primary care doctor. Possible causes could be malnutrition, allergic reaction, thyroid disorder, dietary causes.
