I'm new to this site and not sure if it will be seen. But I'm having a difficult decision. I must decide in two days, so any help with this question would be greatly appreciated. I have anal cancer, stage 1, grade 1, well differentiated. Tumor has been removed 90%. I am getting conflicting reports on whether or not the IMRT is the best route and I do have it available to me at UCSF. It is supposed to spare the surrounding tissue, less short term side effects, and healing is faster. Has anyone had experience with this modality?
