my husband is starting whole brain radiation next week because he does not meet the criteria for stereotatic radiation, actually the doctor suggested surgery then radiation but my husband does not want surgery. He has one tumor approx. 1 1/2" long in the back on his celebellum. Does whole head radiation work and what are the % that it will shrink the tumor., also is it true that you can only have this type of radiation once.
what are the side affects and long term affects of this type of treatment????
