i am new to thi site, but am finding it very helpful. my question is this. my dad was recently diagnosed with small cell inoperable lung cancer in his left lung. he has undergone 3 chemo treatments (3 days each)and is now about half way thru a 34 day course of radiation therapy to the lung area. x-rays have indicated the tumor is gone, a new ct will be done after the radiation i completed. we are faced with the option of aditional radiation therapy to the brain as a prophlactic treatment. should he ??
