Hi there again! Could someone please explain the cancer abbreviations that are commonly used on here? I noticed someone else was asking what one of the others meant. I figured out some of the easier ones myself, but i can't figure out NED or some of the other commonly used ones.

Many thanks, and hugs!
Krista

NED is a great one to dance with....

ROFL is Roll on Floor Laughing
LOL is Laugh Out Loud
CT scan is Computerized Tomography
RFA is Radio Frequency Ablation, a treatment for those 'nasty guys' that refuse to leave after chemo...

PET scan ...hummmm....scan by a dog???
