  • You should have a full discussion with a specialist who knows your case. They will be able to give you the pros and cons, likely success rate, the possible side-effects, and other details about the possible treatment options for your type of cancer.

Thinking it over and asking for professional adivice can help you make a better choice. Hoping to get well soon!
