Chemoradiation. The treatment for pediatric hodgkins lymphoma is usually chemotherapy first, then evaluate the response then followed by radiation to the involved area. The latest data shows that we can safely reduce the dose of radiaiton with effective chemotherapy and the chance of cure is over 90% for early stage. There could be some acute and long term side effects but talk to specialist treating the patient.
Agree, but most. Recent facts are questioning using radiotherapy at all. Hodgkin's used to be a debate about need for chemo in early stage, now there is legitimate question about wheter it is needed at all, especially in early stage.
