Often is: Untreated, or treated only by a charlatan, it is 100% fatal. Generally it requires chemotherapy. The odds in early disease are quite good, and even with metastatic disease cures sometimes happen.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

Fully agree. We use vincristine, doxorubicin, ifosfamide @SylvesterCancer with surgery or xrt consolidation in adults.
