Is there a case to support no radiation?

 How many of you have declined radiation and why? Have your doctors been reluctant to give you radiation? 

 I will talk to my dr.this week. I think because I'm getting 6 rounds of R-chop, my tumor in the testicle was small, no infiltration, my lactate dehydrogenase is normal plus no other activity in ct scans he doesn't think I need radiation. I have read relapse can happen up to 25% of patients in the non affected testicle. Thoughts?

My DRs never mentioned radiation. I did a quick check online and it appears that radiation is only used in certain circumstances.
