I recently had squamous cell cancer in lymph nodes. I have a strong sense, based on extensive testing and the results of my surgery, that radiation therapy may not be necessary. As far as my doctor is concerned, radiation is the obvious choice, but given the consequences I'm not sure I'm ready to accept that. I'm looking for people who have opted not to have radiation for similar cancers to find out what they did instead and what sort of success rate there is for alternative therapies.
